It's Christmas Eve morning in America, but on the other side of the world, in South Korea, the sun has already set on Christmas Eve, and "Santa Grandfather" ? as he's called in Korea ? will be arriving soon with his deliveries.
A national holiday in South Korea, Christmas is traditionally a festive time for both children and grown-ups. But faced with the reality of growing North Korean aggression, we can't help but wonder: is it Christmas as usual this year in South Korea? And how are Korean Americans coping?
We're joined by Seine Kim, a Korean American who lives in New York. Most of her family, including her parents, still live in South Korea. We also speak with Sunny Heo, a sophomore at Dongseo University in South Korea. She is concerned about North Korean aggression but is optimistic and plans to celebrate Christmas as usual.
