Program Info.

Jang-Ho started his news career as a producer at the London bureau of JTBC/JoongAng Ilbo, where he covered events such as the London Olympics, the Arab spring, and Paris terror attacks.


His interest in Korea-related issues eventually brought him to Seoul.  Prior to joining KBS he was a news anchor for Arirang TV, covering major events, such as the inter-Korean summits and the US-North Korea summits. He also worked as a correspondent at South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Unification. During his time at Arirang, he also reported on historic events such as the impeachment of former President Park Geun-hye, the Gwanghwamun candlelight protests, and the South Korea-China THAAD dispute.


Aside from broadcast news, Jang-Ho was also the Korean language researcher for North Korea: Undercover, a book written by veteran BBC journalist, John Sweeney. His work included finding and exclusively interviewing North Korean refugees living in the UK.
