1013 MainstreetCelina Lee has written (and it should be publishing under the 달 imprint of Munhakdongne just as this post is being published) 꿈을 이뤄드립니다 (Live Your Dreams). We grabbed her up and interviewed her on TBS eFM’s 1013 Mainstreet.

Ms. Lee says:

By showing the young generation that there isn’t a conventional path to achieving what we deem as success, I hope to inspire and encourage them to pursue their dreams.

This is a laudable goal, particularly in Korea, which is sometimes very “one-path” oriented.

Here are the nine people who are in the book.

  • Assistant Secretary for Health, Howard Koh,
  • Robot Scientist and the creator of the car for the blind, Dennis Hong,
  • Washington State Senator, Paull Shin
  • Chairman and CEO of UBS Asia, Chi-Won Yoon,
  • Former Director for Asian Affairs at the White House and Georgetown
  • Professor, Victor Cha
  • Chef of the first Michelin starred Korean restaurant, Danji, Hooni Kim
  • Artist Won Sook Kim,
  • Real estate developer Margarette Lee
  • Judge of the NYC Criminal Court, Alex Jeong
