The escalating war of words between the leaders of the United States, Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, has many people on the edge—but for nearly two million people of Korean descent living in America, the concerns hit close to home. Reporter Kyung Yoon reports on the Asian American response to the latest news on North Korea.

Over the last decade, we’ve seen a dramatic decline in the number of people smoking, especially here in New York City. That has not been the case in the Asian American community where people continue to light up. Reporter Mike Gilliam looks at why smoking addiction is pervasive in the Asian American community.
