TBS eFM: McDonald's Korean Controversy

What started off as a dispute over how long customers were allowed to stay in a NYC McDonald's turned into a much larger dispute involving Korean community leaders and elected officials. The incident began when many older Koreans had been spending multiple hours, perhaps even the whole day, at the McDonald's while ordering only a coffee or small fries. I interviewed Koreans here in Seoul to get their opinions on the issue, and I also spoke live with the President of the Korean American Parents Association of Greater New York on TBS 101.3 eFM to get her perspective.
