Edward Yoo Pokropski is a Korean American Adoptee. He was abandoned at a young age, and the circumstances around that event have largely been a mystery. In 2015, at the age of 32, he finally went back to Seoul, Korea to try and find some answers. It’s taken him 7 years to fully express how he feels about the experience.
Case 84: Adopted in the U.S.A. is a storytelling show that uses comedy to explore how the media shapes our misconceptions about adoption. Compelling visuals from pop culture and personal pictures from Edward’s trip to Korea take the audience on a journey through his childhood, all the way up to present day.
Edward is a Senior Writer/Producer at NBCUniversal. He has been nominated for a daytime Emmy twice and won zero times. He is also an Executive Producer of the Asian Comedy Fest, the largest all-Asian comedy festival in the country.
