Judy Hu, Director of Community Relations
I remember this one time after I introduced myself, someone excitedly said “Oh my god, Sooyoung is the name of the girl who appears in Rush Hour!” I had to look her up, and we had the same name but her name was spelled differently and she was a Chinese character whereas I’m Korean.
