The Korea Times has this article about a Korean-Belgian adoptee.

Michelin-starred chef Sang-hoon Degeimbre, a Korean adoptee to Belgium, has returned to Korea for the first time in 35 years.

Degeimbre was invited by the Korean Culture and Information Service to
observe and learn about Korean cuisine and culture. He arrived Monday,
and will be in Seoul through Aug. 20, according to the Ministry of
Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Degeimbre was born in Korea, but was orphaned. In 1975, a Belgian couple adopted the five-year-old and moved him to Belgium.
