Smithsonian.com has a precious essay by Anny Wohn about moving to the U.S. in 1979 and bringing her dosirak to school.

My parents enrolled me at Public School 32 within ten days of our arrival in New York from Seoul. I ate my elaborate do-shi-rak at the school cafeteria, with curious stares and sometimes rude comments from my classmates, who ate their sandwiches from their all-American “Barbie” or “Dukes of Hazzard” lunch boxes.

It’s a quick read but will tug your heart. Read it here.
