Other fans = rocks!

My google alert found a blog maintained by other fan who recently met Sung in person. It's really good to see how others talk about Sung and his works. And it was very good to see that someone else do similar thing like I do -- taking screenshots from movies. :D

I should let the blog owner know that I wrote about her site.

BTW, today's pic has nothing to do with Tokyo Drift, but from my old archive.

No new news to share, but enjoy this old picture, anyway

Hi, everyone. Well, I'm not sure who exactly everyone is here. But I see people clicking checkboxes for articles and simple poll I added recently showing participants. Appreciated!

Sorry, I guess I'm not the best sniffer to the movie industry. I don't know much about what's going on with his latest works. But I took a screenshot from one of his old works. Sung was acting an illegal immigrant, asked about a passport and visa.

I guess this is still a common image of Asian in this country though most of people kind of started figuring out Asians as high performer (at least academically). Anyway, I have never been asked about my immigration status from US citizens, but it is the most common question from others who are also non-citizen. I guess people who care about the immigration status most are the ones who are also used to be asked about that. Let me think,, have I ever asked others? I think I have.. but mostly after I was asked about it first. It's not too strange to be asked about it depending on the situation. For example, if you are about to be employed, the employer must ask. But if you are not in the position which is required to be aware of immigration status, then, it is kind of strange to ask. It's like asking how old you are or if you are married, how many kinds, etc. Those may not be too sensitive, but not the best question to ask if it's your first time talking to the person.
