Edward Yoo Pokropski

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 took him 7 years to fully express how he feels about the experience. Maybe out of fear afraid, or lazy, or have been trying to catch up on all the shows people tell me to watch.
Case 84: The Greatest Adoption Story Ever Told 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 my trip to Korea take the audience on a journey through my childhood, all the way up to present day.
