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…

CAPE 25th anniversary gala

I’ve been to a fair share of galas during my NYC days but last night’s event at Belasco Theatre was unlike anything I had experienced before. CAPE (Coalition Of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment), was celebrating its 25th anniversary with a very star studded line up of guests spanning across multiple generations. Like most galas it included red carpet arrivals/ interviews and a silent auction but instead of a stuffy dinner where everyone…

My red carpet interview video footage from the Asian World Film Festival!

I’m sure you’ve seen red carpet interviews sometime in your life before. I know I did before I went on the red carpet myself to interview the honorees and guests at the Asian World Film Festival (my last blog post on that here). But trust me when I say it’s easier than it looks.

*Exclusive* Interview with ‘Always’ Filmmaker, Derek Ting

I’m going to my first movie screening in LA this week, and what makes it doubly special is that I’m going to support someone and something that I’ve been keeping my eye on for years now. I’ve blogged about Ryan Matthew Chan and how he in his early 20’s created Acceptance, a film that introduces the “Third Culture Kid” perspective, something I wish I saw more…

Crazy Rich Asians movie soundtrack

My blog post on “Who I’d Cast in Crazy Rich Asians the Movie” gets the most views on my blog to this day, even though I wrote it almost a year ago… so I thought I would follow up with a post on a “soundtrack.”  If you haven’t heard, they’re working on the movie, a sequel is in the works and production is to start early…

Feast your eyes on General Tso

Surely you’ve heard of General Tso’s Chicken… In fact you’ve probably ordered it before. The fried boneless chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, found in Chinese restaurants across the United States…  I’ll admit it was one of my favorites growing up. mmm I have since moved onto more authentic Chinese dishes: dan dan noodles, xiao long bao, char siu bao…ever since I found out that…

My first [MOVIE TICKET GIVEAWAY]!: The Spy starring Daniel Henney

Buzzfeed did a (somewhat recent) post on “Asian Leading Men who deserve more airtime”. If you haven’t seen the list of 27 actors yet, I’d definitely take a peek at the amazing, not to mention handsome talent here. You might see some new faces but one of them should be familiar: Daniel Henney.  Not familiar with him or maybe you’ve been waiting for another chance to…

the Eye has to Travel

Both Maggie Prescott in 1957’s Funny Face and the hilariously ridiculous Miss Maxwell in William Klein’s Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo? were inspired by Diana Vreeland Who is Diana Vreeland? I didn’t really know, but I did hear how she had once famously said, “There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.” So in an attempt…
