50 Years of Immigration History in Brazil
Do You Know Rice Grandpa?

Over half a century in Brazil
In the history of emigration to other countries, South Koreans who have gone to Brazil have succeeded the most in adjusting to life in a new country. It has now been 50 years since the first Koreans have emigrated to Brazil. They persevered and overcame the early problems they faced to eventually settle down for good. This program will shed light on their lives in the past 50 years.

Legendary figure in the history of emigration to Brazil, Rice Grandpa
On December 1963, 103 South Koreans departed on a ship from Busan port to reach Santos Port in February of the next year. It was the first government-approved emigration plan implemented after the formation of the new democratic Korean government. Halfway around the world, Brazil was a place of hardship for the South Korean immigrants. Those first-generation Koreans were able to adapt to life in Brazil thanks to help from the warmhearted Jang Seung-ho, otherwise called the “Rice Grandpa.“

Rice Grandpa's amazing story of compatriotism
Born and raised in Yeongdong, North Chungcheong Province, the Rice Grandpa decided to travel to Japan at the age of ten.
Later, at the age of 21, he followed a Christian missionary to Brazil.
During an encounter with Korean anti-communist POWs in 1953, he became concerned of his fellow compatriots. From the time his life as an immigrant began till the day he died in 2000, he delivered rice to support Koreans. He gave away rice to fellow Koreans, co-signed loans and gave people shelter. He was like a living Buddha to Koreans living in a difficult foreign land.

2013, Descendants of the rice grandfather
Even after his death. 60,000 Korean-Brazilians still remember him. And the love and sharing he demonstrated in his life are carried on by second-generation Korean-Brazilians. The Rice Grandpa's simple wish was to see his fellow Koreans prosper and it has come true in an amazing turn of events.
