Acting in short films with Ami Park and Angie Kim

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me and two other girls in mini short films. On paper we’re three women with names that start with A. We’re all Korean American. We’re all cute and spunky (or at least that’s what people tell us). Beyond that, we’re women who have not seen many people who look like us on screens and decided to do…

We insertVerbhere together relationships

I mentioned this to Rowena awhile ago when I slept over at her place and we hung out, but I’m reminded of what I said time and time again as I meet more and more people here in LA. I have this theory that the more verbs you can do with other people in your life, the more fulfilling, full, inspiring, joyful and deep the…

Weekend getaway to San Diego- La Jolla, Coronado, Gaslamp District

What dating a non-Asian taught me about myself

A few months ago I wrote a blogpost on why I’ll never use dating apps again. (There was even a video made of it). I’ll have you know that I haven’t used a dating app in months/ever since because like I mentioned in the post…I really do believe that you meet the right people when you’re just doing your thing, becoming your best self. I don’t know…

“Loving You” playlist curated by me!

If you watched my “40 things about me” YouTube video, you’ll know that EDM is actually one of my favorite types of music. Naturally, whenever I’m feeling a certain emotion or in a certain mood, I turn to music to help me express how I feel. Lately I’ve been pretty happy having met someone who allows me to be myself, makes me want to be…

Why I cried when I watched the Beauty and the Beast (live action)

Belle was my favorite Disney princess growing up. I wore this costume two Halloweens in a row when I was younger because I loved what she stood for so much. She was beautiful, smart and kind AKA the kind of person I wanted to be as I grew up. I mean…  Just look at my cheesy grin! It's finally March! Which means @beautyandthebeast and the…

Online to IRL connections- My meetup in SF!

Awhile ago in this blog post STTA: The truth about social media, I mentioned that despite the pitfalls of social media, connecting through the internet has been a great/easy way for me to keep in touch with people who are interested in doing so. It also gives me the opportunity to connect with people who I otherwise would not have met. If you follow me…

How to tell that you like someone

I love humans. I love talking to people, hearing their stories, asking hard questions, learning from them…. but it takes a special kind of person for me to admit that I really like them. So what does it look like/feel when I like someone? In business and life? Platonic or romantic? Most of the below, if not all: I’m happy with myself… but sharing that happiness…

My “dating app” blogpost comes to life in a video!

As overwhelming as the internet can be sometimes, it can be equally awesome. Do you remember my “Why I’ll never be on a dating app again blogpost? Thanks to the internet, I had the awesome opportunity of getting connected to Kore Asian Media who brought this post to life in the form of a short film starring the talented Angie Kim and Topher Park. Charles found…

People’s Choice Awards 2017, my first time!

I went to the People’s Choice Awards a few weeks ago and experienced an Award Show in real life! Here’s the vlog showing my experience from an audience perspective. Rowena and I were maybe…  two out of maybe 10 Asians in the whole show, which inspires me even more to keep creating, keep meeting people and keep going for my dreams.   See you on…
