High Yellow is dedicated to lofty talk about Asian popular culture, including K-pop, K-drama, Hong Kong film, and wuxia television series.
When I’m not at my day job, I wax poetic about my favorite Asian popular culture. My favorite K-pop groups are SS501, Shinhwa, SHINee and Super Junior. My favorite Kdramas include Boys Over Flowers, My Lovely Samsoon, The Great Queen Seondeok, and Tree with Deep Roots. Some of my favorite Asian films include the Young and Dangerous series, Infernal Affairs, Red Cliff, The Mission, Election, Densha Otoko, Nana, Fong Sai Yuk, and Once Upon A Time in China. My favorite wuxia television series include Return of the Condor Heroes (1983), Legend of the Condor Heroes (2008), The Young Warriors of the Yang Clan (2006) and The Handsome Siblings (2005).
I’m also the web architect for my pet project, Hallyu Harmony: A Cultural History of Kpop (http://kpop.omeka.net), which chronicles the development of Hallyu-era K-pop music and traces connections among artists and groups through the genre’s music, choreography, visual images as well as business and creative personnel.
My day job: Associate Professor in the English Department at Elon University, North Carolina (U.S.).
