This work derives from my experience about my nationality. I recently changed my nationality from North to South Korean and received a new passport. Although this didn’t change my personal identity, I noticed a big change in how I was perceived by others. Also, just by having different words written on my travel documents, I am now able to travel much more freely and do simple things easily like open a bank account. It made me feel so strange because they are just ‘paper’ to me same as ‘paper’ using in toilet. And I reminded a Japanese song called ‘Goat Mail’ which I used to learn and most of Japanese people also do when they were little.
