“I'm Kwan. My brother and I came here from Korea to work. To send money back for our family. I went out to look for food - and those things, they try to kill me. If not for Nick, I'd be dead. He bring me here. But my brother. He still hiding in our apartment.” — Kwan, introducing himself.
Kwan says that he and his brother came to Banoi from Korea in order to work. They also claim to send the money they earn back home, to their family.
It is never revealed whether Kwan and his brother are from North or South Korea. Though it is more likely that they are South Korean due to heavy restrictions on travel and villifying of the West carried out by North Korea.
