Correspondent Minnie Roh gives us the latest update on the backlash surrounding the deal to provide reparations to the Korean sex slave victims of World War II. Protests have been staged all across the world, including here in New York. Exclusive interviews with one of the comfort women Lee Ok-Sun who shares her personal story and struggles, and Phyllis Kim, Director of the Korean American Forum of California who represents many of the victims.

One of the top Supreme Court cases to watch this year is Abigail Fisher vs. The University of Texas, which raises the issue of affirmative action and does it keep qualified applicants from getting into elite schools based on race.  How will the justices’ decisions affect Asian American admission into the Ivy Leagues? Reporter Paul Lin has an in-depth report and interviews legal scholars and educational experts.

In March, thousands of middle school students will learn of their fate as they wait for word on admission into New York’s elite public high schools. Tested is a documentary that examines high stakes testing and reporter Kyung Yoon gives the latest on this competitive process.
