Kim Profile

Robert talks with Don Oberdorfer, the author of "The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History," and the journalist-in-residence at the School of Advanced International Studies at the Johns Hopkins University. They discuss Kim Dae-Jung, who won the presidential election held earlier this week in South Korea. Kim had been imprisoned, exiled, and kidnapped by agents of the South Korean secret police for his political views at various times in the last 26 years.
