About This Book

Bug has always been an interview magazine first and foremost, although I've tried my best to move beyond that model in recent years. On a political level, I simply felt it was presumptuous to write about a culture I had only recently come into direct contact with, and decided that listening to local people was the best approach, at least early on.

On a more basic and political level, though, I started up Bug in early 1997 mainly as a means of meeting prominent or interesting people I admired whom I probably wouldn't have had the chance to encounter otherwise; it was my way of interacting more intensly and profoundly with the new community I found myself in - "Korea"- and in fact was just the first of many subsequent levels of community involvement that I experienced through Bug, a never-ending process of almost viral-like transmission and replication that continues to this day. - J. Scott Burgeson
