I know but... *sigh*...

I kept thinking if I should post what I thought about Sung's recent tweet, but I kind of decided to do. What I mean by "kind of" here is that I'm still not sure if I can make it sound fair to everyone. But let me try. This is what he said:



OK. I don't mind Asians call ourselves as "yellow people." That's not the part that got me. But when he said, "Happy Ni Hao Ma New Year" and pretended like speaking a broken English. I know I know, he doesn't meant to hurt anyone's feeling. And I am not offended. I'm not a Chinese, neither. But as a first generation in USA, I've seen quite a bit of so called "Generation Gap" between his type of people and my type of people. It does not bother me. "Bother" does not sound like a right word for me. And I know we cannot change this anyway. So, just take it or forget it. That's what I should do. But when I see that coming from Sung, I just feel a little bit sad because I'm one wall away from him. We don't have to be on the same group people to be friends or family. We all have something different. But I hope such reminder does not come from Sung all the time that makes me feel I'm not one of his group of people.

This is called over-reacting. So, don't worry about anything. As you know, I'm running out of topic, too. So, that's the biggest reason I'm writing this. We still love you like crazy, Sung!

honestly lately I feel like that's such a big distance between me (a normal European girl) n him. I'm more clear; he always writes yellow ppl here, yellow ppl there.. okay his parents are from korea but he's american n let's be honest remarking every time "yellow yellow yellow" is starting boring me not because im against "yellow ppl" because I LOVE ASIA AND ASIAN but instead of trying to feel like we'r all "equal" he keeps keeping distance between culture. I think he doesn't do it consciously but that just what I feel lately. Hope to have explained it right n dont be misunderstood

and also I don't know how it is in USA but I think that usually even if u came from another country you try to live like american does, for example eat ALSO american food.
He posted all that pics of korean food that seems that he lives in KOREA n not in LA!
ehm I look a bit aggressive right?!LOL :)) maybe I'm a bit stressed and angry in general today so I Hand over my frustration on him just because I know I'll never have the occasion to meet him -_-"

Sorry, that was a bit of an essay! I just realized that you explained well with: " I feel like Im not a part oh his group". Its exactly what I mean and damn Its crazy but it hurts!

Hi Lux Lala,

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. It's very interesting and I really appreciate you took your time to write here! Yeah.. I just saw Sung's another post on Fb saying "yellow people," to indicate himself. I'll write something about that, too. I don't want to make it sounds like it is disturbing and we still love Sung. But I guess it's OK to write our honest reaction. Hope Sung gets it. :D
