On this week’s show we discuss the attack against U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert with Korea Chair Victor Cha. Dr. Cha explains what the attack tells us about the ROK-U.S. alliance and how to understand the South Korean public reaction to the stabbing. Then Korea Chair Research Associate Marie DuMond interviews Ambassador Kim Young-mok, the president of Korea’s International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), on South Korea’s aid priorities and where KOICA can cooperate with the United States. We also cover the region’s news, profile Australia’s Gillian Triggs in the featured leaderboard, and share our One to Watch.
