I checked back IMDB now and found "Helium" is no longer listed there. :( I'm not sure what happened... I wonder if there is any way to get it in any format.
OK. I admit that I'm running out of what to say. So, I googled with key words, "Sung Kang," and hit this:
I think I've seen this before. But I have not posted this link.
I'm going to California in late July. But it's not LA. I may change my destination to LA, then, I will visit Saketini. But maybe not this time...

I hope Sung does not mind I post this old picture that I stole from another site. Well, if he or the site owner does not like what I did, he'll probably let me know about that. So, I will keep this here until that happens.
I've already talked about how Sung felt about his dog, Simba, who passed away a few years ago. So, I know Sung is a dog person rather than a cat person. But I think he has a potential to become cat person. Well, I used to be a very strong dog person myself and sold to the world of adoring cats about 17 years ago. My family always had a dog or two since I was four years old. I still remember I had a really good time with them even though I was bitten by one of them a few times. I was even bitten by my friend's dog who look just like Simba. Yes. I was a Chow who bit me. It was not a serious injury, but I had to take a day off from school and I later had to have a surgery to make the scar look less ugly. Well, that did not make me start keeping distance from dogs. I still like dogs in general. I still pat them whenever I meet friendly-looking ones. I will probably get myself a dog if I can afford a single house in the future.
Anyway, you don't have to have a special incident to turn into a caat person. You just need to start living with one. Soon, you will realize what you missed by being only a dog person. It's still hard to picture Sung holding a cat. But I have a feeling that may happen in the future if it hasn't yet. A dog person is a strong candidate of a cat person at the same time, based on my own experience.

I met the editor of a graphic novel called "Secret Identity," to which Sung contributes. He was my friend's frined's husband. He told us that he is just back from LA where the book signing took place last week. He showed me a picture of Parry Shen and others. Though he has never met Sung in person, sounds like he knows Sung pretty well.
To be honest, I'm not even a big movie fan or into Asian American stuff while I consider myself as a big fan of Sung's. Am I contradicting myself? Maybe. It does not mean that I'm not interested. But probably because I'm not a US citizen or speak English natively, I feel I'm not one of them. I do enjoy Justin's movies and other Asian American works. But I'm not too enthusiastic when it comes to Asian American movement in general. Even for the mainstreaming movies, probably I watch them less than average people in US do. So, I know only a few very famous actors/actresses and I don't recognize names of these days' hot actors/actressed most of the time. When I say "I'm a big fan of Sung's," people think I must know all kinds of actors/actresses. But it was just an accident. I accidentally saw Tokyo Drift on my way to Tokyo from DC. It was a in-flight entertaiment that hooked me up with Sung. After that, I just cannot get him out of my head and started searching all the movies and short films Sung is in.
But I still don't watch other movies Sung is not in very much. I watch only some very famous ones that my husband wants to watch at the theater. Actually, my husband watches movies 20 times more than I do. He always rents DVDs and keep watching movies almost every evening. But I don't join him because I don't find most of the movies Sung is not in interesting enough to finish. I just ask my husband to give me a digest after he watch them.
But anyway, I think I will like this book. I will order one online later.
