Michelle Zauner is a musician who plays indie pop under the name “Japanese Breakfast”. Zauner grew up in the Pacific Northwest, raised by her mother, a Korean immigrant.

Her memoir “Crying in H-Mart” grapples with grief and trauma - but also provides delicious detail about her family’s Korean cooking. On May 6, 2021, Zauner spoke with comedian Bowen Yang of Saturday Night Live.
