Born thirty days apart in the early 90’s,
a musical fan and blue dragon holder,
you fought parental disapproval
to live your dreams on the big-screen.
South Korean acclaim to global fame,
Jessica’s Jingle infected Western culture.
And yet your name remains underground
in towns and cities throughout this land.
Park So-dam: I write as my ink dries up and
the world scratches my brain with a coin.
If I ever escape the fate of my own family,
I’ll start a fan club for you in Chicago, Illinois.
