ABOUT THAT GUY


KOREAN - AMERIKAN


D.S. Chun aspires to write this biography very very very soon for you. Until then, please enjoy these tiddly bits:

My brother can’t really say where he works, but he studies masses of verticals.

Our second family dog was a russel terrier that we named Eddie after the dog on Frasier.

Frasier was really confusing for our entire household.
Both of my parents were pastors and believed I could heal by touch.

I have read a lot of books.

I have taught Film, Literature and Critical Theory in three countries.

I watch two to 3 films a day.

My sister’s three kids are kind of amazing.

I believe empirical review of our social history through the framework of cybernetics is the right approach to building a better society, but who read this far?
