A Seattleite in Korea
I won't be blogging for the next two weeks. I'll be in Korea, eating kimchi and riding the subway, looking at neon signs and beautiful mountains. In the meantime please enjoy the work of another Seattleite in Korea: Jay Park. His "Abandoned" video is above; his other work is easily Googleable. Park went to Edmonds Woodway High School in the early 2000s and then left for the world of K-Pop — a take on modern American heartthrob dance bands and hip-hop/R&B. He remains connected to Seattle via the Art of Movement b-boy crew. Of all his songs I've heard I like "Abandoned" the best. Especially those creepy strings.
