Gwangheungchang line 6 exit 4, Seoul
In 1969, a North Korean agent hijacked a South Korean airplane to North Korea. Fifty people on board were taken to North Korea: 39 of them were freed, but 11 of them were never allowed to leave.
Hwang Cheol, son of one of the captives, has been on a campaign the last 15 years to have his elderly father returned. Come hear Mr. Hwang, first-hand, discuss the case, explain what he has done, and we can have a discussion about ways you can get involved. This will be a fully bilingual event, with his speech in both English and Korean, and with a translator ready to help when needed.
The talk show will be co-hosted by announcer Sophie Jieun Shin and TNKR co-founder Casey Lartigue Jr.
