U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Kathleen Stephens

We bring the Korean Kontext studio to the U.S. Department of State to speak with Kathleen Stephens, current U.S. Ambassador to South Korea. Ambassador Stephens shares with us her personal memories of Korea in the 1970s when she served there in the Peace Corps, her experience as not only the first female U.S. Ambassador to South Korea but also the first to speak Korean fluently, and her response to the recent WikiLeaks uproar.
