What’s up Weavers!

So South Korea has an election on Tuesday May 9th and whichever candidate Korea’s citizens choose will be responsible for navigating the country through some turbulent times. Most notable to many would be foreign policy and the way forward with North Korea and the United States.

I talked about the increased tensions between U.S. and N.K. in episode 33 and that prompted the correspondence that led to todays interview.

Peter Kim, assistant professor at Kookmin University, joins me to talk a bit about both of these topics and much more in a hangouts interview.
