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.

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.
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.
As mentioned in the previous post, I was on television again. This time I was in a documentary by EBS about the electromagnetic radiation from electronic devices. I sat next to the professor so I guess that helped the exposure. I have edited the portion that covers our lab into a DIVX AVI video (7.3MB) and uploaded it.
