Resilience (2009) is a documentary film about a Korean birthmother, Myung-ja Noh, and her son, Sung-wook Hyun/Brent Beesley, a Korean transnational adoptee who was adopted to America when he was a one-year-old baby. It scrutinizes and deconstructs the commonly misconceived, mythic representations in adoption discourses of birthmothers as abandoning mothers and adoptees as rescued orphans that have been re/generated and re/contextualized. It reveals and repositions the marginalized, or silenced, history of Korean transnational adoption to the forefront. Myung-ja`s narrative, which traces the trajectory from the loss of motherhood to maternal power, epitomizes the desire to reclaim motherhood upon her lost and found son, Sung-wook (Brent). This paper reads Sung-wook`s/Brent`s narrative as a return memoir that examines the loss, separation, and reunion begotten by Korean transnational adoption. By employing arguments and debates in trauma theory and adoption study, this article explores the pre-union, reunion, and post-reunion process between the Korean birthmother and the adoptee. Despite the healing aspects of Sung-wook`s/Brent`s return to the place of origin and the reunion with his birthmother, the return and reunion process manifests the disjuncture between Sung-wook`s pre-adopted self and Brent`s adopted self; as Sung-wook`s pre-adopted self, his Korean racial identity, engendered a sense of exclusivity in his adoptive family/country, Brent`s white cultural identity, his adopted self, generates another sense of unbelongingness within his birth family/country.
