Your cultural commentator on KBS (this time on gender equality)

Bumped into a bunch of Korean-looking people in the school ground the other week; the one who seemed to be the local guide approached me and told the other two were a KBS crew who were making a story on women's rights and gender equality in Finland (the model nation syndrome again) and that they'd like to interview me. It was a bit strange that they never contacted me beforehand, but sure I'm vain enough not to refuse. (They would've liked to come to our home, but that I refused.) I don't remember very well what they asked, but I remember that some of my answers were in the tongmun sôdap (東問西答, going besides the point) fashion, especially to the question "what do you think of Korean women".

I forgot to ask the name of the program, but judging from the airing time, it should be "In-depth 60 Minutes" (추적60분) in KBS2. The program will be aired on October 20.
