There was no korean disney princess, so I decided to make my own 😊🇰🇷🇺🇸 It’s been half a year since my korean princess collaboration with LG came out! It was such a dream come true to see my song and character brought to life by the amazing student animators at Cobb TV!! 🇰🇷💕 The song, “Dive,” comes from my original musical (also called Dive!) — the story was inspired by a blending of my family history, my cultural journey as a Korean-American, and the Korean Folktale Shimcheongjeon. 💕✨💕
