I'm Korean, I don't age
Los Angeles, CA
I was born in Ft. Hood, Texas to a Korean Mother and an Irish/Scotch Green Beret Father. I went to live with my Korean relatives in Seoul from ages 2-5. Maybe that’s why I’ve always felt such a strong pull to my Korean side, because I was there during my formative years. I went back to live with my American grandparents in NY, and didn’t taste any Korean food again until I was in college. I remember tasting kimchee again and it was like I was home.
I sought out some of my Korean relatives when I got older and found out that almost everyone on my Korean side is a musician of some sort. My Aunt plays the sax and leads a band and everyone else either sings or plays an instrument…We are also direct descendants of Hwang Jin-i (1520-1560)…
So that’s where all my love of music came from!!!!
I am very proud to be Korean American.
