Not one but two aunties told me they would watch my Hawaii 5-O cameo on Monday night, if if didn't conflict with their K-drama. "When in the show are you? Beginning, middle, or end?" they asked. I had no idea. I only got the pages of script relevant to my lines, so I had no clue. As it turns out, my scene airs about 15 minutes into the show, and darn it, I'll have you know I save a man's life.
A friend called from Connecticut. "You were good. I was surprised," Jon admitted, and then went on to say repeatedly how phony he thought my amateur turn at acting would be. Thanks?
"It really seemed like you were a reporter!" he marveled. I wonder why that could be?
I can't believe I now have a profile on IMDB. It's been fun, because I've had friends call, e mail, and Facebook out of the blue. A number of them didn't know I was going to be on and were surprised to see me.
Except, of course, the aunties loyal to My Lovely Sam Soon or Dae Jang Geum. Should I make it on KBFD, now that would really rate in their book.
