At one point in his career he was an operator for the television show Unsolved Mysteries, taking calls in response to appeals like “If you’ve seen this person, call us at… ” His insider insight: “We got the most calls when the show was on UFOs or alien abductions.“

You can meet three Koreatown teenagers in this 8-minute KYCC video produced by the teenagers themselves. Or visit Koreatown itself in this 5-minute tour which includes a visit to a cosmetics store, restaurant, grocery, and a pool hall where the tables have no holes.
