North Korea Launches Missiles for 3rd Straight Day
New York Times
North Korea launched two short-range projectiles into waters off its east coast for a third straight day on Monday, officials here said, despite warnings from the United States and South Korea against increasing tensions.
The North has conducted six such launchings since Saturday, in what are believed to be tests of short-range guided missiles or rockets from multiple launchers, officials said.
“We remain vigilant for the possibility that the North may launch more,” a spokesman for the South Korean Defense Ministry said, insisting upon anonymity until his government made a formal announcement.
Kenneth Bae: Get him out, but also watch where you are [OPINION]
For all the fanciful exaggeration of the charges against him, Bae is in a serious fix. North Korea is the most paranoid government on the planet. And Bae is ethnically Korean. Note that his captors use his Korean name, Pae Jun Ho. To them, he is one of theirs.
But he is an American, and our government needs to get him out of there. A diplomatic rescue is, however, going to cost something, and more than money.
More South Koreans support developing nuclear weapons
Los Angeles Times
Perhaps it is merely basic human desire to keep up with the neighbors, but an increasing number of South Koreans are saying that they want nuclear weapons too.
Even in Japan, a country still traumatized by the legacy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, there is a debate about the once-taboo topic of nuclear weapons.
The mere fact that the bomb is being discussed as a policy option shows how North Korea’s nuclear program could trigger a new arms race in East Asia, unraveling decades of nonproliferation efforts. The government in Pyongyang conducted its third nuclear test in February and is believed to be preparing a fourth.
In South Korea, high-profile defector is accused of spying for the North — by his sister
Earlier this year, one of the most prominent North Korean defectors, Yoo Woo-sung, walked out of his apartment building here and found four South Korean government vehicles waiting for him.
Authorities hauled Yoo away and arrested him on charges of espionage. They had learned of his alleged crime, court documents show, thanks to testimony from his sister, who said Yoo had been sent on a mission by North Korea’s secret police to infiltrate the defector community and pass back information about the people he met.
Yoo, 32, is being held at a detention center on the outskirts of Seoul, his case a reminder of how this peninsula’s messy and sometimes covert conflict has left the South on edge, with people here unsure whom they can trust.
South Korea: The little dynamo that sneaked up on the world
Christian Science Monitor
South Korea, long in the shadow of other Asian ‘tiger economies,’ is suddenly hip and enormously prosperous – so much so that it may have outgrown its thankless dream of reuniting with the North.
Undocumented Asian Americans are now sharing personal stories online — and onstage
New York Daily News
The crowd that had descended on Washington, D.C. included a great many undocumented immigrants like Pang, yet she felt as if she were an outsider amid the sea of humanity.
“We felt kind of alienated,” said Pang, 23, who was born in Singapore and moved to New York when she was 14. “There weren’t many Asian-American faces.”
Many undocumented Latino students have gone public with their stories, but it’s far less common for Asian-Americans to do the same — even though Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and activist Jose Antonio Vargas, arguably the country’s most high-profile undocumented immigrant, is from the Philippines.
About 1.3 million of the country’s 11.5 million undocumented immigrants were born in Asia, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimates.
Asian-Americans: Smart, High-Incomes And … Poor?
Asian-Americans have the highest income and education levels of any racial group in the country. So it might be surprising that they have a higher poverty rate than non-Hispanic whites. Michel Martin discusses the issue with Algernon Austin of the Economic Policy Institute and Rosalind Chou, co-author of The Myth of the Model Minority.
Is it time to kiss Michelle Rhee goodbye?
Is is time to kiss America’s most famous school reformer goodbye? Larry Cuban thinks so — and below he explains why. Cuban was high school social studies teacher for 14 years, a district superintendent (seven years in Arlington, VA), and professor emeritus of education at Stanford University, where he has taught for more than 20 years. His new book is “Inside the Black Box of Classroom Practice: Change without Reform in American Education.” This post appeared on his blog.
In a drive toward reform, World Bank’s Jim Yong Kim turns to a ‘deliverologist’
[Sir Michael Barber] has caught Kim’s ear in particular and has been counseling the new World Bank president trying to focus an organization that internal documents describe as “overstretched.”
Barber’s philosophy lays out a tough road — one that would force the bank to change the way it sets internal budgets and be stricter in ensuring projects that countries want funded align with its overarching goals. Kim has made the top priority clear: eliminating extreme poverty by 2030. Reshaping how the bank operates to further that end may require a deep change in culture — and Barber’s ideas about service delivery are driving the process.
John Cho: ‘Harold & Kumar animated series pilot is written’
John Cho has revealed that a pilot for the Harold & Kumar animated show on Adult Swim has been written.
Last year, it was announced that an animated version of the film franchise will be included in Adult Swim’s 2012-2013 season.
Vancouver’s Grace Park arresting in Hawaii Five-O
As Hawaii Five-O prepares to wrap its third hit season, Vancouver’s Grace Park is almost as famous a fixture in Honolulu as the landmarks that flash on the screen in the show’s opening credits in sync with the best TV theme music of all time.
Park has chosen an isolated Honolulu hotel to meet with The Vancouver Sun, a place where no one will make a fuss over her. But the taxi drivers and hotel staff are still buzzing as she passes by dressed in a casual outfit: “Isn’t that … Yes, it is … that’s Kono.”
Kono Kalakaua, Park’s onscreen alter-ego, is the only female member of the elite Five O police squad that keeps the televised version of Hawaii safe from global organized crime lords with a tendency to arrive on the island and blow a lot of things up, because huge explosions look kinda awesome with a tropical backdrop and sunsets the colour of overripe papayas.
Conger and Wilson proving to be a good battery
While Hank Conger is focused on establishing a connection with every pitcher on the Angels’ pitching staff, he has developed a strong bond with left-hander C.J. Wilson.
That relationship is getting Conger into the lineup — he has caught six of Wilson’s last seven starts — and helping Wilson, as well.
“There’s a comfort level there that’s starting to develop,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after Friday’s game, albeit a 3-0 loss to White Sox ace Chris Sale. “Hank didn’t really catch him last year, but it started in the spring. They are working well together.”
U.S. Envoy Talks With Chinese About North Korea
New York Times
The State Department’s senior envoy on North Korea said Wednesday that he had discussed “all aspects of the North Korea issue” with Chinese officials, including sanctions on the North, during a one-day visit to Beijing.
“I think this is all a work in progress,” the diplomat, Glyn B. Davies, said at a briefing for reporters in Beijing. “The Chinese have said to us that they will faithfully implement U.N. Security Council sanctions and are doing so. And, as I’ve said before, we take them at their word.”
U.S. gov’t urges N. Korea to free jailed American
The U.S. government called Wednesday for North Korea to release an American citizen jailed there, saying Washington’s top priority is to secure the safety of its nationals.
“We urge the DPRK (North Korea) authorities to grant Mr. Bae amnesty and immediate release,” Patrick Ventrell, deputy spokesman for the State Department, told reporters. “There is no greater priority for us than the welfare and safety of our U.S. citizens abroad.”
Canadian linked to Algeria attackers faces 10 years in prison
Prosecutors in Mauritania have accused a jailed Canadian man of helping prepare an attack on an Algerian gas plant in January and have asked a court to extend his sentence to 10 years from two.
Aaron Yoon, 24, formerly of London, Ont., was convicted last July in Nouakchott on charges of having ties to a terrorist group and of posing a danger to national security. He has served almost half of his two-year sentence.
On Monday, prosecutors told a court that Yoon had acted in connivance with those responsible for the Jan. 16 attacks on an Algerian gas plant and the four-day siege that followed, killing more than 80 people. Yoon has denied involvement and protested that he is innocent.
South Korean Media Blast Abe’s ‘Numerical Provocations’
Wall Street Journal
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is facing a challenge from Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto as the most reviled Japanese politician in South Korea, but the Korean media gave Mr. Abe’s latest militaristic photo opportunity top billing Wednesday.
The largest-circulation newspaper in South Korea, Chosun Ilbo, ran at the top of its front page a photo from Sunday of Mr. Abe in a trainer jet, as did two other nationally circulated papers. Others carried it on inside pages.
All drew attention to a marking on the jet with the number 731, which they noted was the same number as that of a Japanese biological and chemical warfare research facility that performed human experiments during the 1937-45 Sino-Japanese War and World War II.
Choi and O’Farrell in contentious battle for council seat
Los Angeles Times
Theirs has become the most contentious of the four council races on the May 21 ballot, with the candidates accusing each other of homophobia and race-baiting, and their supporters clashing in the streets. Allegations of threats and voter fraud in Little Armenia have prompted investigations by the police and Los Angeles County prosecutors.
The battle is being waged against a backdrop of uneven campaign fundraising and a torrent of spending by independent groups that don’t have the same limits as candidates. Choi, who has the support of many in the city’s political establishment, including Villaraigosa, the powerful federation of labor, and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, has raised nearly twice as much as O’Farrell.
Choi has also benefited from nearly $600,000 in independent spending, nearly all of it from labor unions.
“That’s who he’s going to be accountable to,” O’Farrell insists. He pointed to Choi’s comments in an endorsement meeting with a major city employee union earlier this year as proof.
Hyongsoon Kim: The Koreatown Advocate
On the 24th floor of Century Plaza Towers, in his office at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, attorney Hyongsoon Kim enjoys expansive views of West L.A. and the Pacific Ocean but revels in what’s closer to hand: a mess of legal briefs, boxes and court documents strewn about the room. “This chaos to me invites creativity,” says Kim, 34. “You’re not going to find a lot of attorneys who will agree with me. … But litigation is chaos. You can’t control every piece of it. It’s good for a litigator to thrive in chaos. Because that’s what you’re in the middle of.”
Kim studied to be a classical musician as a teen, attended Cal State L.A. at age 15 and earned his law degree from Columbia at 22. Today he’s lead attorney in a federal lawsuit that’s shining a light on Los Angeles City Hall chicanery by challenging a controversial 2012 gerrymander that handed City Council president Herb Wesson more power. The lawsuit alleges that Wesson, the L.A. City Council and the redistricting commission illegally used race as the main factor to redraw voting-district boundaries for Wesson’s City Council District 10. The contorted land-grab consolidated Wesson’s black voter bloc — and diluted the power of rising Koreatown.
Tiger Mom Amy Chua Responds to Tiger Baby
Wall Street Journal
It’s a sign of just how deep tensions are around parenting today that, over two years after Amy Chua’s “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” was published, its combination of shocking revelation, serious reflection and tongue-in-cheek exaggeration still sends T. Rex-scale ripples skittering across the surface of our sociocultural Dixie cups.
Two weeks ago, novelist Kim Wong Keltner’s “Tiger Babies Strike Back” was published — her nonfiction account of growing up under the paw of her authoritarian Tiger parents. Last week, the web was abuzz over the release of UT Austin psychology prof Su Yeong Kim’s longitudinal study tracking the parenting styles and social outcomes of over 400 Chinese American families in the Bay Area, which seemed to show that children of Tiger Parents had both poorer emotional health and lower GPAs than those of parents who embraced warmer and fuzzier child-rearing strategies.
Florida prom-goers aid in car accident rescue
Prom-goer Peter Kim told NBC Miami that he grabbed a young boy from the overturned van and helped calm the mother.
“We laid her down, and we tried to calm her down. She was just panicking, she was in shock,” Kim said. “She was screaming out, ‘Where’s my baby? Where’s my baby?’”
Philadelphia woman gets probation for Montco car insurance scam
The Intelligencer (Doylestown, Pa.)
A 69-year-old Philadelphia woman, who engaged in a car insurance scam with a Montgomery Township man, will not have to go to jail for her crimes.
Kathleen B. Chung, of the 500 block of Penny Lane, Philadelphia, last week was sentenced to seven years of probation on two felony insurance fraud charges and a misdemeanor false reporting charge to which she pleaded guilty in February.
Chung also will have to perform 125 hours of community service and pay her half of the $24,554 restitution ordered in the case.
Co-defendant Kyung Soon Kim, 53, of the 100 block of Robertson Court, Montgomery Township, will pay the remaining half of the restitution as part of the sentence he received last month following his guilty plea to theft and conspiracy charges. Kim also was sentenced to two weekends in jail and handed a seven-year probation sentence. As part of that sentence, Kim will pay a $5,000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service.
Star Trek: Into Darkness Interviews Part II: – John Cho and Simon Pegg
Sara Fetters: Speaking of evolution, was it easier this time to step into the shoes of these characters? Do you still feel the pressure of decades of Star Trek lore?
John Cho: It was easier. We’ve done it once and we went through that anticipation of whether it was going to be accepted. Also, the welcome was exceptionally warm with the last film. For me, I felt like it wasn’t on us, it’s really all on J.J (Abrams). He’ll take the rap.
Ken Jeong Excited About ‘Community’ Renewal, Calls Cast ‘Harlem Globetrotters Of Comedy’
Ken Jeong was pretty ecstatic when he dropped by “Late Night.” His show, “Community” had been picked up for a 13-episode fifth season by NBC. And despite it not being on the schedule yet, it was a pretty big deal. The show had been considered by many unlikely to return and was one of only two comedies to be renewed at NBC (the other being Parks & Recreation).
“Fifth season,” Jeong said proudly. “Five, six seasons and a movie!” The latter is a catch-phrase that’s been trumpted by fans of the show for the past few years, encouraging NBC to stick by the cult favorite. They’re inching ever so much closer to that goal, even if these latest two have been shorter season orders.
Some of the Juiciest Bits of ‘Rodham,’ the Hillary Clinton Movie Biopic: Sex, Scandal, More
The Daily Beast
Ed. note — Kim immigrated to the States at the age of 9 and considers himself Korean American.
Rodham was written by Young Il Kim, a relatively unknown South Korean. Though casting and filming haven’t begun, the movie is set to be produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment (The Twilight Saga) and directed by James Ponsoldt, whose coming-of-age drama The Spectacular Now was a standout at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The screenplay for Rodham was a hot commodity in Hollywood, earning a place on the 2012 Black List—an annual compendium of the best unproduced screenplays floating around Tinseltown. And according to The Wrap, “industry executives who have read the script claim it offers a potentially award-worthy role for one lucky ingenue.” Kim, meanwhile, has received the Sundance Institute’s Alfred P. Sloan Commissioning Grant to develop his next project—an original, untitled script based on the life of Stephen Hawking.
Check out our story on Kim and his screenplay from last month’s issue of KoreAm:

Christina Kim happy to be back in Mobile, looking for good week at Mobile Bay LPGA Classic (video)
No one has ever had trouble finding Christina Kim. Her high-energy approach to golf and life in general and her bubbly personality have made her a favorite with fans on the LPGA Tour.
That’s especially true in Mobile, where Kim won the 2005 The Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions crown at Magnolia Grove’s Crossings Course. She bested many of the LPGA’s top players at that time in winning the then-limited field event on the city’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail course.
Unfortunately for Kim, that is the most recent of her two LPGA Tour victories. The California native who now lives in Orlando has been slowed by injuries in recent years but told AL.com she is looking forward to this week’s Mobile Bay LPGA Classic, a course she knows well and one on which she is comfortable playing.
Michelle Wie looks to make a run at this week’s Mobile Bay LPGA Classic
This week, Wie will seek her third victory in a LPGA Tour event — her first came in the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational, the other at the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open — when she competes in the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic at Magnolia Grove’s Crossings Course. The par-72 course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail will welcome Wie and 143 other golfers seeking the tournament title.
Gripping Photos Capture the Mirror Worlds of North and South Korea
Architectural photographer Dieter Leistner was born the same year East Germany began construction on the Berlin Wall. He was 37 when it fell. Maybe that’s why his interest in North and South Korea feels so personal—he spent forty years in another divided country.
Leistner’s new book, Korea – Korea, is a compendium of images that were shot in 2006, in Pyongyang, and 2012, in Seoul. Each spread compares two different public spaces in each city, including bus stops, subway cars, and public squares. In a foreword to the book, curator Klaus Klemp explains his perspective as a German:
North Korea says Korean-American sentenced to labor had smuggled in anti-Pyongyang literature
North Korea delivered its most in-depth account yet of the case against a Korean-American sentenced to 15 years’ hard labor, accusing him late Thursday of smuggling in inflammatory literature and trying to establish a base for anti-Pyongyang activities at a border city hotel.
Still, the long list of allegations included no statement from Kenneth Bae, other than claims that he confessed and didn’t want an attorney present during his sentencing last week for what Pyongyang called hostile acts against the state.
Since the sentencing came during a period of tentative diplomatic moves following weeks of high tension and North Korean threats of nuclear and missile strikes on Washington and Seoul, outside analysts have said Pyongyang may be using Bae as bait to win diplomatic concessions in the standoff over its nuclear weapons program. North Korea repeated its denial of such speculation in the new statement, but the pattern has occurred repeatedly.
Disgraced spokesman leaves blemish on Park’s U.S. visit
President Park Geun-hye’s first official visit to the United States ended in one of the worst ways possible Friday with her spokesman being fired amid allegations that he had sexually assaulted a woman during the trip.
The allegations sparked public outrage in South Korea and dealt a serious blow to Park just as she was beginning to regain public confidence through her handling of tensions with North Korea and what appeared to be a successful five-day visit to the U.S.
“(He) completely poured cold water over the accomplishments of the U.S. visit,” said one presidential official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “It’s causing an extreme burden to state affairs.”
Dennis Rodman says heading back to N.Korea
AFP via Google News
Basketball hall-of-famer Dennis Rodman said he plans a second trip to North Korea to try to use his budding friendship with leader Kim Jong-Un to free a jailed American, in an interview aired Friday.
The flamboyant basketball legend, approached by celebrity news website TMZ as he walked on a Los Angeles street Thursday, said he would return to North Korea on August 1 on a mission to release jailed tour organizer Kenneth Bae.
“I’ll be back over there. I’m going to try to get the guy out,” the heavily tattooed Rodman said in between waving to well-wishers.
Woman pleads guilty to hitting and killing teen
AP via San Francisco Chronicle
An associate professor at the University of Montana has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge filed after her car veered onto a sidewalk and struck and killed an 18-year-old Missoula man.
Yoon Hee Cho, 38, pleaded guilty Thursday in Municipal Court to careless driving resulting in death and to driving on a sidewalk.
The plea agreement calls for Cho to spend 30 days on house arrest and pay $5,000 into the Chance Geery Memorial Fund in lieu of a fine.
Cho was charged in the death of Geery, who was struck on April 1 as he was walking and holding hands with his girlfriend.
Palisades Park man linked to ID and credit card fraud ring to be deported to South Korea
Bergen County Record (N.J.)
A Palisades Park man involved in a massive identity theft and credit card fraud ring was transferred Thursday to immigration officials for deportation to South Korea after a federal judge determined that the 31 months he has already spent in jail would satisfy his sentence.
Osung Kwon, 37, pleaded guilty in 2012 to using a social security card and counterfeit driver’s license he obtained through a borough-based black market enterprise to defraud banks and credit card companies of almost $400,000. He has been in prison since he was arrested in September, 2010.
Speaking through a translator, Kwon, who was wearing shackles and a green prison jumpsuit, apologized to U.S. District Judge Katharine Hayden and pleaded for a lenient sentence.
Witnesses tried to save 4-year-old after he was struck by Jeep
First he heard a thud. Then screams. Then Jim Sugent saw a 4-year-old boy lying in the middle of Stevenson Avenue in Alexandria.
Police say the child, who was identified Friday as Jacob Choi, had run into oncoming traffic May 4 and was struck and killed by the driver of a 2010 Jeep Commander. The driver, who is 84, has not been identified by police. He has not been charged in the accident, which remains under investigation, police said.
Jacob’s mother, whose name and address were not released, ran into traffic after her son and also sustained injuries, but they were not serious, police said.
Star Trek’s John Cho a boldly going actor worth shouting about
“I get called Harold the most,” Cho says. “I think maybe Harold & Kumar fans don’t know my name and Star Trek fans do know my name … Harold fans are vocal!”
And of course there’s Star Trek, now two films into the franchise with Star Trek Into Darknessset to boldly go to theatres galaxywide on May 17. Cho plays Enterprise helmsman Hikaru Sulu in the prequel reboot series, the promotion of which has brought him to Toronto. (His introduction at a Monday night screening of Into Darkness included reference to him as “the MILF guy.”)
This makes three hit franchises that Cho has been active in so far, and he’s just entered his 40s. He’s also busy with TV series, most notably the sci-fi drama FlashForward and the recent sitcom Go On, and his early career in the 1990s included much stage work, as a member of East West Players, an Asian-American theatre company in L.A.

Choo staying calm in contract year
When new Reds center fielder Shin-Soo Choo arrived in Cincinnati at the start of the regular season, a book was waiting for him at Great American Ballpark. The text was written in Korean, Choo’s native language. A fan had sent it, he said.
It wasn’t a baseball book. It was about the games we play between our ears. Choo read about keeping a narrow focus, about thinking “simple things,” about accepting that he can’t please everyone.
“When you stop, you see everything,” Choo told me recently, in the cramped visitors’ clubhouse at Wrigley Field. “I really want to explain it to you, but it’s hard to say. I’ve already read it three times.”
Mets could go after Cincinnati Reds outfielder Shin-Soo Choo in offseason
New York Daily News
Almost anything would be an upgrade for the Mets, considering that the state of their outfield is as bad as predicted — even if reserve Mike Baxter has a knack for the big moment, as he showed again Thursday night.
Who’s better: Henderson or Aldo?
ESPN Insider (subscription req’d)
Lightweight champion Benson Henderson and featherweight champ Jose Aldo are two of the most popular fighters in mixed martial arts.
In their most recent fights, Aldo dispatched Frankie Edgar by unanimous decision in February at UFC 156, and Henderson beat Gilbert Melendez in a split-decision victory in April during UFC on Fox 7.
Although the two fight in different weight classes, Aldo has hinted at a jump in competition. Should Aldo beat top contender Anthony Pettis at UFC 163 in August, there’s a real chance these two champs could soon meet in the Octagon.
Mom’s Cooking Comes Between a Husband and Wife
The New York Times
Sometime KoreAm contributor Sung J. Woo writes a Mother’s Day piece for the New York Times.
My mother and I don’t fight often nowadays, because I’m 41 and she’s 72 and we lead separate lives. I see her once every two weeks. She makes me lunch, we shop at Costco, she makes me dinner, then she sends me off with grocery bags full of her cooking.
We’ve been on this schedule for the last eight years, since my father passed away. But on this evening, near the end of my visit to her senior apartment, I could tell we were going to argue.
“Just take it,” she said.
“It’s just one more.” There was an edge to her voice. “Why are you being difficult?”
Have American Parents Got It All Backwards?
This is a guest column by Korean American professor, Christine Gross-Loh, author of Parenting Without Borders: Surprising Lessons Parents Around the World Can Teach Us.
The parent I used to be and the parent I am now both have the same goal: to raise self-reliant, self-assured, successful children. But 12 years of parenting, over five years of living on and off in Japan, two years of research, investigative trips to Europe and Asia and dozens of interviews with psychologists, child development experts, sociologists, educators, administrators and parents in Japan, Korea, China, Finland, Germany, Sweden, France, Spain, Brazil and elsewhere have taught me that though parents around the world have the same goals, American parents like me (despite our very best intentions) have gotten it all backwards.
We need to let 3-year-olds climb trees and 5-year-olds use knives.
Korean American actor John Cho will join Fox’s upcoming pilot for Sleepy Hollow as a guest star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 40-year-old actor, who’s best known for his lead role in the Harold & Kumar franchise as Harold Lee, will be guest-starring on Fox drama Sleepy Hollow from Star Trek producers and writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
A thriller based on the legend of Ichabod Crane, Cho will play Officer Andy Dunn, “a likable police officer in Sleepy Hollow who has Detective Abbie Archer’s (Shame’s Nicole Beharie) back and is seemingly compassionate and helpful.” Continue Reading »
