Interview with Mr. Kang Chol-hwan for Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK)

Special episode on the Kim-Trump summit from Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). Norwegian only.

Mr. Kang Chol-hwan, author of Aquariums of Pyongyang and Director of the North Korea Strategy Center (Seoul/New York), discusses what he thinks about the upcoming meeting. You can also see me tag along, and for some reason, there’s a close-up of my boots. (9:20-11:34)

Interpreting at Oslo Freedom Forum

I’m interpreting from May 27th to May 31st at the annual Oslo Freedom Forum, where I first worked in 2016 with Mr. Ji Seong-ho and Mr. Jung Gwang-il.

This year, the OFF delegation includes Mr. Ji Seong-ho (President at NAUH), Mr. Kang Chol-hwan (author of Aquariums of Pyongyang) and Mrs. Yeonmi Park (known for her advocacy in the United States and author of In Order to Live).

Today, I interpreted the Facebook Live interview with Mr. Ji Seong-ho, by Lilia Luciano. Watch Me. Ji discuss the upcoming NK-US summit, his support for the Warmbier family, and hope for the North Korean people.
