It is said that people become brutally honest during times of intoxication. We allow ourselves to feel heartbreak that we try to hold back, we tell people the things we are most afraid to admit, we even make mistakes- lots of them.
Watch Wong Fru’s most recent short “To Those Nights” as a reminder that the heart and mind wander to interesting places when under the influence of alcohol.
Whats one of the more scarier parts of starting up a new relationship? Meeting the parents. There’s even a belief that Asian parents are a bit more scary because of such high expectations. While this may or may not be the case, meeting the parents tends to be a scary event for Asians and non-Asians alike. While you may have a tale or two to tell about your own experience, you probably never expected this to happen.
Watch the Wong Fu version of meeting the parents and comment below to tell us some of your own stories!
The stories that hit too close to home. The romance that leaves us sighing. The heartbreak that brings us back to years before. We should be used to it by now, but it looks like Wong Fu has done it again. If you have ten minutes to spare, let this new short Somewhere Like This pull at your heartstrings.
It’s one thing to be born into an interracial family, but it’s another thing to come home after being away for 2 years and unexpectedly find yourself suddenly part of one. Wong Fu Production’s new mini-series, in association with a FremantleMedia Company – “Home is Where the Hans Are” – shows how this unanticipated surprise might just be what Derek needs most as he returns home after realizing his dreams are getting him nowhere.

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:

ISA‘s first concert in Seattle was a smash hit as backstage passes alone sold out within the first fifteen minutes of release, it quickly became apparent that the International Secret Agents (ISA) Seattle Concert would have no shortage of hype and demand in its 2011 return to the stage.
Throughout the years, Asian Americans have yearned to see faces like theirs on the small screen. With Nickelodeon’s new show Supah Ninjas, the Asian American family is returning for the first time in 16 years as the star of a mainstream television series. While teen-oriented shows are saying they’re committed to diversity, do AA teens today really feel well-represented?
ISSUE: Spring 2011
STORY: Janice Jann
There’s a new family moving into TV-land this spring. The dad, a bumbling cop. The grandfather, a wise old man. And the son, a doe-eyed high-schooler named Mike who just wants to win over the girl of his dreams.
This year’s Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival was bigger and better than ever before.
I know people use that phrase to advertise things all the time but in this circumstance, it was actually true!
I’ve attended this film fest for a couple of years in a row. Supporting my fellow Asian American artists and filmmakers, some whom I have the honor of calling friends now.
This year, I’m able to truly reflect how far we’ve come as Asian Americans working in the film and entertainment industry. And we’ve come far. Just take a look at these two AA institutions: Wong Fu Productions and Angry Asian Man.
Ok, not really.
But we know someone who is!
As I’ve mentioned before, Wong Fu’s impromptu short at the ISA concert last weekend had me in pieces. And judging from the nonstop laughter in the house from the beginning of the short to the very end, it was obvious the video was a grand favorite of the evening. Well, today, the video is finally unleashed on Youtube!
After watching it for two four more times, we noticed a guest appearance by a very special friend of ours… KoreAm Journal!
We won’t spoil the clip for you by telling you where it is but can you spot KoreAm‘s guest spot?
Ted’s Best (Man) Friend just shows that Wong Fu Productions is getting better and better with age. Sharp, witty dialogue, a spot-on Office-mockumentary style, and chemistry so good, they can give the Friends cast a run for their money, it’s no wonder they draw fans of all ages (as this writer has learned first-hand).
Wong Fu also happens to be on the cover and inside the pages of KoreAm Journal this month! You can purchase your own copy here:
