Journalist and Consultant Michael Breen
Since 1982, Michael Breen has lived in Korea. British by birth, he now considers Seoul his home. After careers in journalism and as a consultant to companies on North Korea, he is currently the CEO of Insight Communications, a PR company he founded in 2005. The one consistent theme through his varied career is his writing about Korea. The author of three books has also been a regular columnist for the Joongang Daily and the Korea Times, and contributes occasionally to the op-ed pages of the Wall Street Journal and other international and Korean newspapers.
During our conversation, I talk with Michael Breen about his careers in Korea, his controversial books, and how recent events in Libya might influence North Korea’s future.
