Where Are the Dark-Skinned Koreans Today?

Interestingly enough, I cannot find keywords for dark skinned Koreans unless I call them Black or African – which they are not. I wonder why that is.

You know, the further I go back in my research of history, the more questions I have. 

The further I research familiar & strange lands, the darker its inhabitants get as you go back in time. 

I realize, that I know absolutely nothing about our world. 

All of the images in this post are circa 1895 – 1902. The latest being an est. 1935. That was barely 100 years ago. Where have these people gone?

I have way more questions than answers at this point, but I guess a great way to start a positive discussion surrounding this subject would be to pose a simple question: 

Where did all of the dark-skinned inhabitants of the Old Kingdom of Corea, Land of the Morning Calm go? 

Where are they now, and who currently stands in their place?

I write in my personal time and I haven't published much at all. I don't know if that qualifies me as a writer or not, but I'd like to change that. I have a deep passion for travel, cinema and (mainly) East Asian things, but I plan on writing various things to keep it spicy. Let's prosper together ~ よろしくおねがいします。
