See here for the details. Alas, it’s not being given by me, but by Dr. Stephen Epstein, my far more capable and entertaining co-author (of this book chapter of the same name).
Unfortunately, work commitments mean I’ll be unable to attend personally. But if you’re in Seoul and free on Tuesday night yourself, then make sure you do!
Update: See here for a follow-up post at Gusts of Popular Feeling.

Not in Seoul, but would love to hear this talk. Do you happen to know if Dr. Epstein would consider allowing video of such a lecture to be posted online (not necessarily this one for the RASKB, but on the same topic)?
I think I’m on good enough terms with the speaker to be able to answer on his behalf :-)
Yes, happy to allow it, but not sure if tonight’s talk is being taped or not. Sometimes they do it for the RAS, sometimes not. There’s a three-minute clip already available of the opening of the short version presented at the UC Irvine conference for the Korean Popular Culture Reader which has been made available on YouTube, which I think James linked to above.
Thank you. I checked out that video, and I’ll look into getting the paper that was offered at the lecture. Cheers.
They did in fact tape the lecture but I’m not sure where or how it will be made available….
