The eldest son of North Korean refugees and a former human rights lawyer, he has one of the highest approval ratings in decades – just months after stepping into office. President Moon sits down with CNN’s Paula Hancocks in Seoul to talk about his journey to the Blue House and his perspective on North Korea and the events unfolding on the Korean Peninsula.

CNNi Culinary JourneysCulinary Journeys

In this special edition of CNN’s Culinary Journeys, we travel to New Orleans, Louisiana, as the city prepares for one of the biggest celebrations of the year: the Jazz Festival. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz but the city’s charms go beyond the music-filled streets of the old French Quarter; its history at the crossroads of French, Spanish and African cultures is also reflected in its cuisine. From gumbo to turtle soup and from shaved catfish to po’boy, there’s no shortage of flavors in the culinary landscape of the Big Easy. Our guide on this journey is celebrity chef and author John Besh. With several restaurants and accolades under his belt, Besh is the Louisiana homeboy whose dishes celebrate the bounty and traditions of his region. Chef Besh takes us through the sights, sounds and flavors of Jazz Fest, which once a year celebrates the food and music of Louisiana.

CNNi Innovative CitiesInnovative Cities

By 2050, six and a half billion people will crowd the world’s cities. City life comes with the draw of higher living standards and the economic boon of connectivity. Yet, as our urban centres bloat and sprawl, a fresh set of pressures are coming to bear. Will infrastructure buckle under the weight of rapid urbanization? Will pollution choke industrial powerhouses, and inequality wrack communities? The challenges are daunting, but as we’ll discover in CNN’s Innovative Cities, people designed these problems and people can innovate their way out of them. In this 30-minute program, CNN profiles the cutting-edge projects that are combating the pressures on modern cities as they grow at rapid rates.
