We conclude our series in partnership with New America Media, delving into the issues California’s ethnic voters care most about this year, with a look at the politics of Korean Americans. California is home to 451,000 Korean Americans. The biggest community is in LA, but a sizable number are here in the Bay Area, with the highest concentrations in Santa Clara and Alameda Counties. So what’s this community talking about one week ahead of the elections? KALW’s Hana Baba spoke with Won Yi, a talk show host on Korean television KEMS TV in San Jose.
