I’m a Korean-British writer and actor from Seoul and Birmingham. I’ve worked as a freelance interpreter, and studied chemistry at university – which taught me to look for the spark in everything, including myself…And many more puns later…I found acting and writing.
I started developing my solo show at Camden People’s Theatre as a Starting Blocks 2022 artist, after taking part in New Earth Theatre Performers Academy and the Solo Show Creation Lab by Haley McGee. Sabrina Mahfouz, my mentor, has inspired me to write and perform political feminist work.
I’d like my work to be fun and approachable to regular and non-theatregoers alike, has representation at its heart, and tackles challenging themes in a playful way that connects people across generations and communities.
My first solo show, I’m Sorry I’m Not Lucy Liu (supported by Arts Council England) is a playful and political choose-your-own-adventure time-travel show about a young woman’s quest to live up to her lookalike idol’s life and career.
I’d love to see you at the show, if you can make it!

** As a performer, you have to be curious about ideas AND people.
