I did an interview last week w a major media outlet & we talked about a couple topics. I'd like to share some of my thoughts with you here on IG regarding the topics of identity, social media & representation. Many young men & women develop their sense of identity through the media & from popular culture. It's a beautiful feeling to have the privilege of enjoying a movie, tv show or music video & seeing yourself reflected in that art form. This is a luxury that shouldn't be taken for granted.
On the contrary, many young ppl in this country grow up feeling misrepresented or even worse : invisible. This can have a profound affect on one's sense of identity & often results in a lifetime of searching. We should all be conscious of the role identity plays in our everyday lives.
One of the most intriguing aspects of social media is that everyone is striving for some form of validation or seeking something that will provide equilibrium in their lives. You should never judge someone for dressing a certain way or for behaving in a certain manner, but rather you should be empathetic, non judgmental & try to understand where they are coming from & why they do the things they do. In doing so, you may learn something about yourself.
You may feel an emotion or arrive at a conclusion about or toward someone, but be self aware that those feelings you have are just merely reflections of yourself. Do you like what you see?

This is that scene in ur fave kdrama where the chaebol guy is standing in the middle of the street after breaking up w the humble local coffee shop girl bc his CEO dad found out about their secret tryst thru the paparazzi after the humble girl went thru so much trouble to get a makeover to make it seem like she's part of his world , but ultimately the plan was sabotaged when the chaebol guy's evil ex gf revealed to him who the humble girl really is causing the humble girl to run away thinking he wouldn't like her after her secret got out, however in reality he likes her even more knowing that she's just a humble girl. Unbeknownst to her, he was rendered speechless bc something she wore triggered a traumatic event from his childhood memories & he's left standing there wondering if he did the right thing. The plot twist tho is they won't know til the end of the series that the humble girl is actually a princess who went undercover to test whether the guy's love for her would be true or influenced by her status. *takes a breath* lol I legit just wrote a mini kdrama novel from start to finish on IG covering almost every kdrama plot line that exists. This is what I do on Friday nights.
Oh btw, new theme : MINT!

It's time for more leading Asian characters in American TV/Film. We are so much more than just the token ethnic best friend or a 1 dimensional stereotype. In summary: we Asian guys are a snack ok. And the world needs to realize this
I've read so many times "why should this role be Asian it's an American script" ok lol. I'm American thank you, we are as much a part of the cultural fabric here as everyone else.
Representation is important, but it's easy to take for granted. Especially if you have the privilege of seeing people like yourself everyday through mainstream tv, film, & media. How about those who aren't represented via ur everyday actors, models, singers & public figures? Someone just DMed me saying that I remind them of Jackie Chan. Tf? Why bc he's Asian? He's a legend, but it also shows how limited in scope people's reference points are. Lol. Cuz we are nothing alike.
Fortunately the landscape of "media" is changing and has allowed for a new generation of public figures like myself to emerge. If following me in any way shape or form has inspired you, I just want to thank you for allowing me to be your inspiration.I wish that I had someone to look up to during my journey, but now I have you guys.
For those of you who want to understand why representation is such a big deal: I made a video about this subject on my YouTube channel a while back. I took a stand for diversity & representation---yes speaking about this topic is a risky thing for a new actor like me to do, but it's what's right. That's why I love kdramas & kpop. I'm not a "koreaboo". It's just refreshing to see Asians front & center instead of in the shadows.

Furious Tokyo Nights w/ @Kohki
Behind the lens: while exploring Tokyo, @kohki & I came across this incredible Japanese storefront; it looked like a scene straight out of a movie! Needless to say I was excited. I vehemently insisted getting the bike in the shot (an idea which Kohki was unsure of at first) & at the last minute I decided to ditch my long sleeve shirt to better match the bike. It was maybe a 100 degrees that night & I was sweating like crazy which worked to our advantage & added another layer to the overall mood of the photo . Kohki worked his magic & the rest is history. This is one of my favorite photos on my IG portfolio. More to come!

A few days ago, u might have seen on my InstaStory or Snapchat that I was was sad af about a specific incident which had happened back home in LA... At the time I was shook.And I don't mean omgwtfbbq Exo comeback teaser Kpop fandom shook. I mean real life tears in ur eyes shook. What I didn't tell u guys was that there was a silver lining Bc the next morning, my manager called me to let me know that I booked a movie in Japan.I literally was frustrated af last week about some industry related stuff & now less than 72 hours later I'm In Tokyo filming a moviethe point of this post is this: pizza. no rlly the point is the universe is atuned to your energy. I quickly shifted my focus on all the positive things to move forward & things fell back into place. No matter what ur going thru u can do the same. I love u guys & hope it gives perspective.
