CEAS Director Dafna Zur moderates panel on sustainability in K-pop

Dafna Zur

On a recent trip to South Korea, CEAS director Dafna Zur was asked to moderate a conversation about sustainability between SM Entertainment founder and executive producer Soo-man Lee, member of K-Pop group EXO SUHO, and other faculty, including Chairman of the Biodiversity Foundation and Distinguished Chair Professor of Ewha Womans University Jae Chun Choe, Penn State University Sociology professor Sam Richards, and Director of the World in Conversation Center at Penn State University Laurie Mulvey. This conversation was held as part of the SM Sustainability Forum, which was streamed on January 1, 2023. Korean entertainment companies are becoming increasingly aware of their environmental footprint and are discussing ways to commit to a more sustainable future.

The conversation was filmed on site at the SM company studios.
