Last month, Chris joined journalists and others to discuss the origins of kpop, ahead of a special 50-piece symphony orchestra performance of various kpop songs the following day at Lincoln Center in NYC.
(Before the symphony, he gave another presentation but I'm not sure if it was filmed/have been unable to locate any videos of it.)
Weeks before, Chris participated in a panel discussing the relationship between technology and music at the 2019 Sway Minds Technology Summit 2019 in California.
In March, Chris was part of a panel for SXSW titled the True Value of Kpop. Again, I've been unable to find recordings of it, but his growing amount of appearances in America makes me wonder if we'll get anymore this year.

Omona, are you as entranced by the intellectual side of kpop, as much as the music? Or do you take the bops and leave the rest?
