South Korean Journalists to Visit The Concept Works on Sept. 21

Two Korean journalists will visit The Concept Works on Sept. 21 as part of a U.S. State Department project, “Politics-Journalism Cooperation and Competition.”

Mr. Song Min Jin, a reporter on the Seoul Broadcasting System Economic Issues Desk, Seoul Broadcasting System, and Mr. Sewon Lee, a reporter on the Yonhap News Agency Social Affairs Team, will visit the United States from Sept. 8-27.

Among their priorities are an exploration of issues regarding the media’s role in law enforcement and legal cases and proceedings; discussion of the role of traditional and new media in politics and elections; and gaining a greater understanding of the roles of political commentators and observers in the development and debate of civic issues.

The Iowa Center for International Understanding is coordinating the local itinerary of the journalists’ tour.
