My self-summary
I’m a gay Korean boy from Connecticut, so much of my time is spent dancing to Gangnam Style while wearing as much L.L. Bean as possible. In the rare moments when this is not my life, I spend a lot of time with my friends over an assortment of New Yorky activities – waiting in line at Ippudo, running in Central Park, day drinking in Central Park, talking about visiting more museums, shopping sample sales, discussing apartment situations, blaming my tardiness on that damn [F/G/L/1/6] train.

I spent my post-college years living in Asia, first in Tokyo and then in Hong Kong. Tokyo is amazing because it is endless, weird, and packed with seriously fun stationery. Hong Kong is amazing because it is a genuinely global city (and hopefully will remain so) and you can buy beer at 7-11 for $3.

Eventually, I moved back to America to become more educated, spend more time with my family, and understand television humor. So I got my MBA three years ago, allowing me to take on the official role of check-splitter at group dinners.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a real estate development firm, where we buy, develop and redevelop buildings. I love the mix of finance, architecture and urban planning and would love to develop a major building in New York one day.

Outside of work, I like staying physically active. I go to the gym regularly, run along the East River, do those overpriced group classes every once in a while, and undertake larger athletic endeavors when there is an exciting trip attached (i.e. mountain climbing, scuba diving).

Otherwise, I watch a ton of movies, read a lot of news, read real books as part of my book club, trade stocks, and eat out.
I’m really good at
- Making friends. I'm an only child, so my friends have always played a very important role in my life and I love 'em for it.
- Obstacle courses
- Excel
- Picking restaurants
The first things people usually notice about me
My shoulders. All those years of competitive swimming were good for something!

Those rare friends who've known and seen me in different contexts

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next travel destination. Brazil, Mexico City, Xinjiang, Bombay and Alaska are on my list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gettin' down with models and bottles. Or actually just bottles. Like beer bottles.

In general, I like going out. Gay bars, dive bars, hotel bars, jazz bars, whatever. As long as it's not a sports bar, I'm down for it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been stood up on a date because the guy "didn't really know how to use the subway."
You should message me if
You are interested in meeting up in the near future. I think you learn more from 10 minutes of face-to-face interaction than five rounds of Internet messaging. I'm more relationship-oriented, but open to fun as well.
