Showing up in the news

Situation in the situation room

Power supply/demand situation is getting a bit tight in Korea this year - there's this unusually hot weather coming up, and several large nuclear plants got shut down due to faulty parts being put into due to corruption.

As a result, power grid situation room is up and running early, and I'm taking part in the operation. This means I'll be showing up in the news broadcasts a few times throughout this summer. Yesterday saw some significant coverage from the media, and here are the results.

Interview with E2News now published

"Power Industry Personnel in the Spotlight" - Woo-Duk Chung, Deputy Manager
Like what happened last year, contents of a recent interview has just been published on a newspaper. It was with an industrial news outlet called "E2News" this time, dealing with the iPhone app I developed last August. I was glad my face was published along with the article, but sadly my last name was misprinted on the paper edition ("Cho" instead of "Chung") and that led to some confusion here and there. I requested a correction and the online and PDF versions reflect this properly.

For more details, see below.

Caught on the KTV media coverage

Between March 8 and 10, '2010 Inter-Ministry Green Technology Forum' was held at Seoul Center of Education and Culture. I was attending the event to assist my team leader and the manager, something I previously noted on Twitter.

Since it's a government-related event, KTV (government-run Korea TV) was naturally covering it. It was broadcast on 6PM, March 8, with the video and the transcript thankfully available at the website.

Looking at the coverage, there had been too many technologies being discussed and so the K-EMS Development Project that my team is working on was sadly not aired. Team leader's awarding of the commendation from the minister was also edited out. But looking at the video carefully, the whole team, including myself was caught on the camera when it was recording the entire audience. This is what was seen between 1:23 and 1:25 mark.

The video capture came out too tiny, but it becomes obvious when you compare this with the selfie I took during the event.

So it's now confirmed that I attended, but I'm not sure if my company will recognize this as a publicity.

Wesley on TV: SBS Live Today

Cyborg Husband from Kore on Vimeo.

Well, there you have it, folks. I was on national TV for about 10 minutes on 'SBS Live Today' show, in the segment named 'Today People' which came at the last part of the show. Television watchers catching the show live could see it at around 6:10 PM, Korea Standard Time, November 26, 2008. It's so good to know that a more recent footage of myself is recorded in the archives of television broadcast. :-)
