[Rebroadcast] We Built This Bureau: Elise Hu

Listen Online
Show Notes

Over the past few years, Korea and Koreans have experienced incredible political, social, and diplomatic shifts.

It is hard keeping up with all these new developments as a Korea Watcher, so the task of reporting the daily news has been doubly challenging.

We are replaying an episode that we broadcasted in May 2018 with then-NPR Seoul correspondent Elise Hu who was present to cover the attack on then-U.S. ambassador to Korea Mark Lippert, the collapse of the Park Geun-hye administration, the transition to President Moon Jae-in, the Winter Olympics, and other key events.

In addition, Elise talks about the challenges that came with opening a news bureau in Korea and generally getting by in Seoul as an American. Our senior director Troy Stangarone led the interview.

Elise Hu is a still with NPR and is based out of Culver City, CA. You can find the Youtube series "Elise Tries" here
