[Rebroadcast] We Built This Bureau: Elise Hu
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
