The Measure of a Woman

zergsprincess:

This was a wonderful piece of Korean Americans and the persistence and struggles our parents went through.
Honestly, any parent deserves praise, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Los Angeles and Me

 

Being grown and bred from LA, I was exposed to gangsters, hippies, drugs, etc.  America’s good at exposing these things and frankly, I loved it.  Because it definitely has made me who I am today.

The first time I heard California Girls by Katy Perry somewhere in Seoul, I started screaming out of joy and started dancing!  It’s just something CA girls do, and I know other girls do it to.

Throughout my time in college, I was an environmentally conscious person, smoked weed, wore no shoes to class, and embraced being a lover of all things.  I bought some decals and cut out huge peace symbols and stuck them on my car.

I remember smoking weed with a friend while we were sitting on the grass out of an apple.


A space for all

Hello,

I never really was into my Korean background at all.  I would’ve thought I’d make a website dedicated to kyopos but here we are.

During high school I wanted to have blue eyes, blond hair, and hated that I wasn’t born this way.  Throughout my life, I’ve been called Chinese, Japanese, or the typical ‘Asian’.  I hated being called asian, it almost sounded degrading; people would assume I played the piano well.  I played piano well because I practiced, but was quickly assured that it was because I was ‘asian’. Right.


춤과 나

원래 운동할 때마다, 춤을 꼭 추게 된다.

보통 뛰기를 하고, 다리 트레이닝도 하는데, 괜찮은 노래가 나오면, 춤을 추게 된다.

이 때가 제일 기쁘다.
추면서도, 다리, 팔 , 허리, 다 자세히 보면서 춘다.
나중에 미국에 가서 대학교에서 춤을 전공할 생각도 많이 한다.

원래 전공이 보존 생물학이었고, 환경을 너무 좋아하는 사람인데, 그만큼 춤도 너무 좋아한다.

한국에서 JYP 같은 곳에서 춤을 추는 것은 관심이 없다.

내 몸이 춤을 못 출 수 있을 때까지 출 것 같다.


Exclusive: PSY`s Anti-America Protesting Past?

Note: This is the original story that broke the whole PSY anti-American scandal wide-open. Was wild to watch it start from my little musings over on Haps to eventually being  cited by everyone from the New York Times to Time Magazine to ABC news.

“Gangnam Style” has made PSY a global household name with millions of adoring fans. According to recent English translations of his performances in 2002 and 2004, PSY participated in several high profile anti-American military protests on the peninsula that might anger some, while winning over others.

About a week ago I got a message from a staff member that runs the prAna (sustainable clothing) Facebook page and was asked to do a piece for their blog! Being a big fan of the clothing line and owning a some of the gear myself I was honored by the offer. I was asked to write a reflection piece of our travels so far and why this adventure has been key in our happiness and visions for the future.  If you have a moment, check out my addition to their page via the link below! While you’re there, I suggest checking out the convertible pants….awesome.
