Interview with author of K-pop Revolution, Stephan Lee

Updated: Jul 3



Stephan Lee talks to us about his books, which we loved: K-pop Confidential and its sequel K-pop Revolution, which follow a Korean American teenager chasing her dreams as a trainee idol in Seoul. We discuss his writing process for each book, the relationship between art and activism, his personal experience of anti-Asian violence, his trip to Seoul during his time as an entertainment journalist for Entertainment Weekly, and more.
