Nearly half of China's Korean people live in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture. It's located in northeast China's Jilin Province, sitting near the border of China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Jin Donglong's family has lived in the Jin Da Lai village in Yanbian for generations. The family is now seven people strong; the Jin couple, their two sons, two daughters-in-law and one grandson.

Jin's younger son has just married. On their wedding day, the groom brought a pair of wooden geese to the bride's home, symbolizing staying together forever. The bride filled a bag with rice, which means the bride will be a good wife, cooking meals for her new family.
