Back in November Carlie and I took a mini roadtrip up to Seattle to see Alex on her last night hosting JK POP! before moving back to Seoul. I met Alex when we got together to shoot these photos, and after she returned home to Seattle we realized that we had a friend in common! Amongst other discoveries I learned that Alex was hosting monthly Japanese & Korean pop music nights at a club in Seattle, with lots of videos and dances and even crazy homemade costumes and stuff. We only had one chance to see her in awesome hosting action, so we made it happen! Carlie and I spent some time messing around in Seattle before the party (by messing around I mean trying to find a parking spot), getting photobooth pictures taken in the mall, buying lots of stuff from Daiso (Japanese dollar store), snacking & getting coffee at Odd Fellows Cafe and browsing the amazing Totokaelo next door. I also bought those sweet weed print socks by HUF at some skate store. JK POP was super fun, we drank tequila and danced around all night, watched crazy Korean music videos in awe, and were dazzled by all of Alex’s costume changes (Pikachu!!). We snoozed on her couch that night and went out for a tasty breakfast in the morning, props to that toppings bar for having the hugest bowl of butter I’ve ever seen. A GOOD TIME!
