What role does Korean culture play in the unfolding of the novel?

The clash of cultures is, I think, understated. For Young, her issues stem from the traditional roles, in Korean society within a family, clashing with what she feels is expected of her in America. Does she want to fit in or is it more important for her to maintain her Korean identity? It's not a simple answer. For the non-native person, often the values and behaviors of their home culture are so different from the place that they are now residing. Had you considered this aspect of identity while reading about the Yoo family?
