Café Seoul Season 5, Episode 7: Nostalgic for the Unfamiliar

Disclaimer: This is is absolutely the longest episode we have ever recorded… Ever. But you know what? It’s a podcast and you can listen to it at your own pace and even skip around or skip past parts you find boring.

I know.. it’s a cheesy graphic, but whatcha gonna do?

Dr. Stephen Suh is is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Women’s and Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs.  He is currently doing a research project about Korean-American returnees, that is, Korean-Americans who have for one reason or another moved to Korea as adults.

We at Café Seoul became aware of this project when we came across a post in the facebook group “Critical Korean Studies”  where Stephen was looking for participants to interview. So this episode not only features an interview of Stephen for the podcast, but it also contains Stephen doing real live research as he interviews Eugene!

News of the Weird:

On the Pulse: Rob first interviews Stephen about his project, then Eugene participates. Here we can find out a lot about what some of the commonalities and differences between Korean-Americans who have chosen to live in Korea. You can also learn a lot about Eugene from some very interesting and sometimes difficult questions posited by Stephen.
