K-Pop Confidential with Stephan K Lee
Stephan Lee moved to New York because of Sex and the City, went into magazines because of The Devil Wears Prada, and wrote his debut novel, K-Pop Confidential out of his lifelong love of girl groups. This warm-hearted, authentic novel follows K-Pop trainee Candace Park as she pursues her dream of stardom amid the rivalries, glamour and intrigue of the K-Pop world, while trying to hold on to friendship, family, self-worth and possibly even romance. Stephan discusses his novel and the K-Pop phenomena with Tamar Herman, who writes about K-Pop for the South China Morning Post.
