angry reader of the week: eddie kim

Let's do this. It's time again to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is Eddie Kim.

Who are you?
Hi. My name is Eddie Kim, and I'm one of the Creators of the K-TOWN reality show.
Find me on Twitter: @iAmEddieKim
Find me on Facebook: facebook.com/iameddiekim
You can find out all about my quirks on my Twitter and Facebook. I try to make you laugh there... or hopefully at least amused.

Also, watch my show: K-TOWN Season 2 on YouTube. And find us on Facebook.

What are you?
I'm Korean American. There are some people where it's questionable what ethnicity they are just from looking at them... like you can't tell if the dude is Singaporean or Chinese. But for whatever reason, I apparently have the map of Korea on my face so when people look at me they say that I'm unmistakably Korean. Like, this mofugga is straight up Korean. Except when I try to grow a goatee, then I look Japanese.

Where are you?
Right now, I live in Armenian City... Glendale, California. According to Armeniapedia.org, Glendale is the 3rd largest Armenian community outside of Armenia, after Moscow and LA County. And true story, it was stated that Kim Kardashian wanted to run for the Mayor of Glendale. I would support that campaign.

Where are you from?
I was born in Philly, Pennsylvania. But I moved to LA when I was 1. I might as well have been born here. I grew up in K-Town, right on Hobart and Olympic. That spot apparently is the place that every Korean growing up in K-Town once lived. For high school, I lived in Torrance. I've also lived in Pasadena, Korea, the Bay Area, Vegas, Detroit, and Germany. I visited New York, DC, and Seattle so much that I might as well have lived there also.

What do you do?
Somehow I ended up writing, directing, and producing shows. Currently, I'm one of the Creators and Executive Producers of the K-TOWN reality show. It's been quite an amazing experience thus far, and Season 2 is coming out on Wednesday, November 28th. Check it out: www.youtube.com/loud.

I'm also the Founder of Projekt NewSpeak. I wasn't always like this going full force into entertainment before. I originally thought I was going to end up being a lawyer and in politics. And I was for a while... just the politics part. I've worked for Members of Congress, Senators, and political campaigns for people running for high office including the President of the United States.

What are you all about?
Right now, the only things that give me joy and escape from the rigors of life are: sports (all LA teams), food, movies, and TV shows. I love watching movies and tv shows. I'll watch them again and again. Favorite shows right now: The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Homeland. One other thing... when this life is over, I hope I made an impact on the image of Asian Americans around the world.

What are you angry about?
Girls that stick their tongue out the side of their mouths in every single picture they take. And if they add a wink, oh my god.... game over! The only thing that tops that... is if guys do that! OH HAILZ NO!!!
