Getting tickets for GD’s concert. Found this random clip on my old laptop and find it to be hilarious. 

Emerline & Co vs. Korean Girls Everywhere

Last week, I had the opportunity to interview 1TYM member, singer, entertainer, and now show host of Danny from LA, Danny Im! He provided incredibly insightful and candid stories from his past. From his musical influences to how he auditioned for YG, he’s had one crazy ride. 
The transcribing process has begun! :) 
The 30 day hiatus I had from here has replenished the creative drought I was having. Stay tuned! Exciting things are underway.

I once heard Paulo Coelho say in an interview that the idea of marrying the “same person” for the rest of our lives is wrong. Is that person really the same person when you married them 5, 10, 20 years ago? As time goes by, people change and walls are broken and rebuilt. We find ourselves better as the years go by or we discover things that change the way we had always been. 

I think this is true for many things. It is arrogant for me to assume that a friend I knew a long time ago is still the same in the present. They probably have changed just as much as I have changed. For change is a constant and growth finds each person at their own pace and own way. 

"When people realize they’re being listened to, they tell you things." - Richard Ford

I think the best thing we can do is to meet the other person where they are in the best way that we can…. and simply listen. I have a feeling this is going to be one homework assignment I’ll have for the rest of my life.

서울 사람 (Seoul Saram) is an interview series featuring 10 friends of mine who are working or living in Seoul. Others featured may originally be from Seoul as well. The series will include videos, podcast style interviews, written posts, photos, and a mix of other experimental content. 

The first episode of 서울 사람 will be with my Yonsei graduate and all around interesting friend, Yourim Jeon! A year before I left for Korea, Yourim actually came to my home campus as an exchange student. We met through a club I was involved in. The next year when I went abroad to Yonsei, I got closer to her and we’ve been good friends ever since then. 

Stay tuned for our conversation on her favorite indie pop rock bands, places to go, and what she has to say on certain topics of gender inequality in Korea. 

Please submit any questions or comments in the ask box that you’d like for me to address along with the first post.
