One of my favorite actors right now is Daniel Dae Kim. He’s smart and friendly and connects to his fans via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. He’s retweeted and commented on some of my YouTube Videos and made me happy.
I have no idea how or why this adorable picture he posted yesterday sparked some mean and racists comments, but I’d like to share the good vibes instead:
“#TBT to me and my parents, #FreshOffTheBoat. They left their families and friends in #Korea to come to this country with $200 in their pocket, no real ability to speak English, and a rambunctious 1 year old named Daniel in tow. From that they built a life- a successful career, 3 grown children and whole new group of friends. Everything I am today I owe to them, and to #America. The next time you see an immigrant family, no matter what race, color or religion, look again. What you may be seeing is another family just like mine, hoping to make their own #AmericanDream come true. #ThankYou, Mom and Dad, for taking that chance so that our family could have a better life. I dedicate the successes I’ve had in my career to you. #USA #IHaveADream #AsianAmerican #Pride #ChapelHill” (via Instagram)
Let’s spread the DDK love!
And last not least, here’s my YT playlist:
Have a great weekend, everyone! 🙂
