Appearance on YTN Science "Docu S Prime"

Screenshot from Docu S Prime episode 243 "Science Ahead of Time - โ€˜Over-Technologyโ€™"

I was interviewed about the wearable computer and the tablet PC that I developed about two decades ago by the crew of YTN Science last month. The result of that made into the most recent episode of the science documentary series "Docu S Prime" which aired yesterday, March 10, 2022. It was quite flattering to see those devices being introduced as "over-technologies" together with the self driving car from 1990s.

Interview in the January 2022 issue of MotorTrend Korea

My interview "How the Korean Steve Jobs drives an EV" starts at page 68 of MotorTrend Korea January 2022 issue

Earlier this month, MotorTrend Korea did an interview and a photo shoot with me at a coffee shop since they wanted to do an article on an EV specialist. The result of this appears on the January 2022 issue as a part of the special focus on the electric vehicles. It was a great opportunity to talk about the present and the future of the EVs, as well as promote a bit about my book.

Thanks to an SBS show last year, I was invited to appear on the popular cable television program "You Quiz", and that episode aired yesterday. I liked the way it turned out, and it seems that a lot of people enjoyed it as well, especially the parts involving my wife.

Appearance on SBS "What on Earth" episode #1104


[Source page at SBS website]

The weekly SBS TV program "What on Earth" (์ˆœ๊ฐ„ํฌ์ฐฉ ์„ธ์ƒ์— ์ด๋Ÿฐ์ผ์ด) is one of the longest-running show on the network, going back to 1998. I made an appearance on episode #187 on Feburary 28, 2002 as the "computer man" that wore the "wearable computer" around the city. The show has recently been going back to the archives to highlight the notable old episodes and they wanted to show how I was doing these days. The newspaper article from 10 years ago made the cut, but not more recent stuff, probably due to time constraint. Still, it was a good opportunity to let people know I'm still out there, alive and well.

P.S. There are now a couple of news articles on my appearance online.

2020-10-16 Update: SBS Noriter and another news outlet have reported as well.

Interviewed by KBS for the regional news

My family appeared on the KBS Daegu News 9 on February 3, 2019

During this year's Seollal (Korean Lunar New Year) holidays my family traveled around the country. We visited Daegu on Sunday, February 3, as I read that its National Museum had some interesting activities for the kids in celebration of the year of the Golden Pig.

One such activity was actually colouring wooden decorations in the shape of a pig. While my daughters were busy painting them, a camera crew from KBS (Korean Broadcasting System, a national public broadcaster) entered the room and started recording the area. Then they asked me if they could film us taking part in the activity and subsequently do a brief interview. I told them that it was fine.

The whole thing seemed to be for a regional news segment, so I checked to see if it aired that night. Sure enough, that was the case and my family appeared on the News 9, as you can see above. You can click on the captured frame or [here] to see the entire segment - relevant part starts around 1:30.
