Korean violinist Hyung Joon Won on building harmony through music

This week, we're joined on the set by Hyung Joon Won, an acclaimed violinist from South Korea. He has the resume of a musician - he trained at Julliard and has performed around the world - and the heart of an activist. For years he's been bringing together musicians from the North and the South in the hopes of calming tensions on the Korean peninsula. He tells us why he decided to try to pursue peace through music.
