Life in California has been amazing and so blessed to be in this city!
“The Secret of True Success: If you don’t enjoy the process, then the reward is worthless. Because it’s the process of the achievement that is its own goal.
Don’t confuse success with fulfillment… goals can change, fulfillment can be found doing many things. Don’t be afraid of acknowledging that. Pride should be about fulfillment.”"
Thanks to two awesome friends, Elena Muslar and Catherine Mock, for sharing this with me! What a great and inspiring read! ♥
“One thing you don’t realize in your 20s is that anything is possible.. This is your moment. People like to think that the odds are stacked against them. Crappy job market, no money, no support, no clue how to enter the field you desire. While a lot of this is valid, you have to realize that by being the new generation, it’s our turn now. Someone has to be the new, great filmmaker, artist, scientist, author, etc. So why not let that someone be you? What’s different today than back then is that there is no clear path anymore. Lines are smudged, career trajectories are murky. But that’s also what makes it so exciting, don’t you think? You can create your own journey and become a trailblazer… I still think it’s possible to go after what you want and get it. It just involves a buttload of discipline and tenacity. You also can’t ever second-guess yourself. Imprint it on your brain. You will become who you want to be. There is no other alternative.”

( video Jay Park featured in NY1)
Korean-American recording artist Jay Park not only has millions of fans across Asia and is also developing a following in the United States, particularly in New York. NY1’s Lewis Dodley filed this report as part of Asian-American Heritage Week.
He’s a singer, dancer and rapper but his fans say that still doesn’t begin to describe Jay Park’s talent.
The 25-year-old Korean-American phenom has millions of fans across Asia. But if you want proof of his popularity in New York, look no further than a line for his recent concert in Midtown that wound around the corner and stretched for several blocks 8 hours before the show.
“I guess I’m a really dedicated Jay Park fan,” said one fan who waited for over 24 hours for tickets. “I don’t want to take the chance that anyone else got those front-row seats. I’m making sure I’m here first.”
“He’s like a triple threat,” said another fan. “I love him. And I love his tattoos too. They’re really nice.
“He’s such a good dancer and a good singer and he has a great personality,” said another. “I like his personality.”
“I speak both English and Korean,” Park said. “I’m writing songs in both English and Korean. I do rap, I dance, I sing. I do a whole bunch of things. I just feel like I’m a whole new breed of artist.”
The road wasn’t easy for Park. After a tumultuous break-up with the Korean group 2 p.m., Park re-emerged on the internet with a cover of the BoB and Bruno Mars hit “Nothing on You,” which he sung in his parents’ bathroom. It got 2 million YouTube hits in less than a day, setting the stage for his return to Korea.
“You sense that there’s a little something deeper, which I think we want as an American audience and what Korean-Americans want to see from their pop stars,” said Minya Oh of Miss Info. “They want to see behind the gloss.”
Now, Park is among a growing list of Asian-American entertainers like Far East Movement, who topped the Billboard charts for a while and Aziatics, who are driven by the catchy raps of Queens native Flowsik.
Park is taking off with his his primarily Korean CD “New Breed,” with an English CD to follow. Park says that if mainstream success comes, it’ll just happen.
“I was born in the States,” he said. “I grew up listening to hip-hop and R&B in the States. When I make music, it’s what comes out naturally.”
