Why I am starting my own business

I feel like I’ve been entrepreneurial my entire life. I’ve also had way too many jobs in the past few years for me to consider a long term corporate life. Oftentimes I feel unchallenged by what I am doing, or what I have done is not aligned with the vision I have for my life/my values. After multiple attempts of trying to stay in a…

The best advice my grandmother gave me

My mom sent me a photo of my great grandmother today. She’s 109 years old. She lives in a nursing home in a somewhat rural area of South Korea. The last time I saw her was in 2011. Before that, the last time I had seen her was when I was about 3 years old. During those 16 ish years that I hadn’t seen my…

Confessions of (Asian American) Hollywood Assistants

Growing up on the East Coast, I knew what the concept of celebrities and Hollywood was, but didn’t really know much about the business of Entertainment, let alone the career paths it offered. Now that I’m in Los Angeles, I’ve met a lot of people in the Entertainment industry who work in Talent Agencies- the management companies that handle and facilitate the careers of all…

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…

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…

Lucky Rice Feast LA

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Lucky Rice LA Feast at Vibiana, in DTLA. Believe it or not, this is the 4th time I’ve attended! The first one was in NYC, the ones after that were after I moved to LA. It’s kind of crazy to think how much has changed everytime I go. One thing that hasn’t changed is my obsession with discovering and…

Awesome Asian American Women dinner

In the beginning of 2016, I posted this online on Twitter and Facebook. This was about 4/5 months after I moved to LA, but finding my “tribe” has been something that I’ve been on the lookout for, for as long as I can remember. I simply “put it out there” literally on the internet, so that anyone who saw it, or fit the bill would maybe,…

I’m on Buzzfeed!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m actually Korean-American….and believe it or not, Korean was actually my first language. Hard to believe considering how current day, I can barely hold a conversation with my family (or strangers) without starting to fumble or using English mid sentence. I was recently asked a few questions about what it’s like to be Korean-American, but not be able to…

Link of Hearts- Interview with founder, Elizabeth

I’ve been wearing this necklace to death lately and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. Sometimes I’ll just say “Oh it’s a Link of Hearts necklace” and they’ll nod and smile. Sometimes I’ll tell them more. Truth is, it might just look like a nice gold strand,  but there’s a story behind it. According to NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health), major depression…

My favorite places in Koreatown, Los Angeles

I’m still pretty new to Los Angeles (almost 5 months now) but I already have a few favorite places in each neighborhood. Here are my favorite places in Koreatown (so far). The funny thing is they’re not even Korean-food related.. Oh hey it's the real life filter that shows up on snapchat when you're in @koreatown! If you know what I mean you know what I…
