Memorial Day is around the corner and people everywhere are rejoicing. Why? We get a three-day weekend. Now that you have some time, how about spending your weekend doing the things you always put off? Admit it, you have a giant list of things that you never seem to find time for. Here's what we have in mind: 1. Work Out. Every January, gyms are filled with people motivated to begin their new years resolution. By May, this motivation has usually died.
Diary from Cannes 2013: Day 4 May 19, 2013: The sun came out on Sunday, and so did... every single Asian film that I wanted to see. What I got used to very quickly as a first time Cannes attendee (with a low-priority press badge) is that every single day, I'd look through the list of hundreds of press screenings, competition screenings, and market screenings; plan my day in at least three different formations amidst much confusion and indecision; and then when I finally decided on my schedule, at least a third of it would fall through for some reason or another (screening full, interview...
A new reality show, Roll Models, is coming your way. From the producers of K-TOWN, this show takes a deeper look into the Asian American youth culture of Southern California. In particular, Roll Models focuses on the world of import cars, modeling, and go-go dancers. The show will feature well-known import models such as Nikita Esco, Michelle Yee, Gina Darling, Beckie Joon, Danielle Lo and Melyssa Grace. We are told to expect a lot of drama from these strong-willed girls who are not afraid to get in your face. Already, the show has gathered quite the buzz and people have been more than...
The release of The Hangover Part III couldn't have come at a better time. We're due for another Daily SHAG (Smoking Hot Asian Guy) and who better than The Hangover's Peter Jae (you may remember him from one of our favorite series K-Town Cowboys!), who worked as a stuntman for the film. Peter is also currently working on stunts for the upcoming Michael Mann film, Cyber, starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei, and Wang Lee Hom. If you happen to be a fan of abs, you're in for a treat! Click on for more pics:
Technology has come quite a long way. Just ten years ago, texting was not a main form of communication, we had to actually remember phone numbers, and we went to the library to get information. Now, we live in a society of smart phones, gps systems, and social media. But apparently, we're not stopping there. Trying to make its way to the top of innovative technology is the process of doll cloning. Said to be perfect for the "tech-savvy ego-fetishist" individual, Japan's Clone Factory specializes in 3-D printing of human faces. For the price of $1300, you can now place your face onto a doll's...
This week, Forbes Magazine published their list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women 2013, their annual list of the impactful women from seven categories: billionaires, business, lifestyle (including entertainment and fashion), media, nonprofits and NGOs, politics and technology. The list was determined using three metrics: money, media presence and impact (please go here for a more in-depth explanation of their methodology). This year, 21 Asian women (2 are Asian American) are featured on the list, with mainly businesswomen and politicians ranking on the list, marking a very strong...
Complicated love triangles, near-death experiences, and endless tears? If this sounds familiar, your relationship may just be liken to some of our favorite Asian Dramas. Check the signs below: 1. You receive piggyback rides. This is often when you're too drunk to walk, but not too drunk to divulge some of your deepest secrets.
22 months, 1,357 hours, 30 people, 2 ladders, 1 still camera and 288,000 jelly beans. What am I talking about? Kina Grannis‘s new music video – In Your Arms – made entirely of jelly beans. Surely you’ve eaten them, but have you ever seen them animated?
Let’s face it; since WongFu came out with “Yellow Fever,” it appears to be a known assumption that Asian males just don’t get the girl, whether it be the cutely exotic Asian or the hot White chick.
Especially on prime time television, we rarely see an interracial relationship of an Asian male and Caucasian female.
However, on the November 6 episode of Walking Dead, Steven Yeun gave Prime Time a pill to prevent Yellow Fever from spreading any further. Yeun’s stereotype breaking character, Glenn, hooked up with Maggie, the attractive white female that Glenn has been lusting after. According to an interview on AMC, this wasn’t his first on-scene love-scene, but won’t mind if viewers count it as his first one. Check below for video:

Who likes red carpet pictures where the celebs are just smiling and posing prettily? Boring!
KoreAm and Audrey caught some great outtakes from the red carpet and we’re here to share it with you. Cheers (and cheese!) to all the hair tosses, funny faces and magical moments captured in between each flash.
So nice when the film stars actually like each other. John Cho and Kal Penn look like they’re having so much fun together, I wanna join in! (And totally not because they’re John Cho and Kal Penn…) Continue Reading »
Kate Bosworth always looks so stunning and impeccably dressed when she’s out and about and I think I may have finally figured out why! It’s her choice of accessories!
So it’s awesome to find that Kate has a jewelry site, Jewelmint, going on with celeb stylish Cher Coulter.
We’ve all used spray devices as ways to get rid of things we do not want: from bugs and bites to unwelcome odors. Now, in China, sprays are being used to get rid of something that we all experience: hunger.
So, who doesn’t want hunger? On October30th in Beijing, China, International Fashion Week kicked off with the “Tang-Jing” Fashion Show in the Golden Hall of Beijing Hotel.
There was a lot of spraying going on backstage, from hair to perfume, but there was one spray that was not allowed. On the backstage curtain read a sign in both English and Chinese, “Models must eat before going on runway. Spraying your hunger away is not enough!”
The spray they are referring to is SENSASLIM, which is being described as a dieter’s dream, and an easy way to lose weight without ever feeling hungry. With its slogan, “nothing tastes as good as slim feels”, it is no surprise that the sign was posted this year by organizers concerned about the spray. Their concerns stem from a repeat incident last year where a model collapsed on the catwalk from lack of energy brought about by food deprivation.
Norwegian model, Erjana Ala, discovered the Sensaslim spray in her native Norway where it has recently been released.
“The other girls saw me spray it, and now everyone is wanting it,” Ala said. “It isn’t in China yet, so the girls are buying it on the internet and getting it sent by courier. It’s crazy how everyone is asking me where they can get it.”
Sensaslim Research Director Dr. Sommerville said Sensaslim is administered three times a day, by two sprays onto the tongue, ten minutes before meals, and should not be used instead of food entirely.
“Sensaslim was not designed for the underweight or normal weighted people but for those who are overweight or obese and need to lose large amount of weight,” he said. “We would not encourage models to use it more than once a day as it is may work too well.”
Celebs came out to celebrate Audrey’s Fashion Night Out this year and we made sure to ask them the tough questions.
Thinkers like “would you rather be good looking or a good dresser” and “what’s your biggest vice?”
Some gave heartwarming answers (PK Kim said, “a good personality” Aww…) and others were random fun (Jack Yang wants to go naked!)
Find out the rest below.
Audrey Asks: Would you rather be good looking or a good dresser?
My girlfriend Carolyn and I got invited to a media dinner at Osaka, a sleek new Peruvian Asian fusion restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard. It’s a wonderfully classic and elegant place to go to for an extravagant girls night out or a quiet evening with your family. You can sit at the bar, the main room, or the garden terrace, depending on the kind of ambiance you’re looking for.
The menu focuses on traditional Peruvian ingredients blended with Asian flavors from Japan, Thailand, and China. The resulting dishes are an array of innovative ceviches, tiraditos, robata, and signature entrées. The thing about menus at places like this is most of the time A. I don’t know what half the food really is (and I can only guess at what it will taste like) and B. I want to eat everything. What the heck is a tiradito? Is nikkei a kind of fish? And can I try everything on your menu?
For those of you out there who are as indecisive and hungry as I am, I’ve put together this mini guidebook of sorts for you to refer to if you ever stop by this savvy new joint.
This Week’s Happenings 11.5-11.13
Seriously Mr. Calendar, how is it already November? You’re forgiven; though I may be a bit biased over November, because it is: my birthday month, the start of cozy holidays, and the beginning of Holiday Happenings.
