Interview with Jay Chung (@jayints)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always noticed how underrated Korean music has been. With the emergence of a few Korean artists who gained global popularity, it struck me that the world needs to know Korean music. This is where we set out on our journey to advocate and promote traditional Korean music to the world.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Burning out in this profession is really easy. Which is why I advise my fellows to always remember why you started. Remain grounded and you will find it easier to go through each phase of this career.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I have always been lucky in terms of familial support. I also had my friends and community supporting me, which meant a great deal to me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Promoting Korean music is itself a service to the world. But jokes aside, we spread goodness and beauty in the world through music and art. Providing people a chance to experience music they’ve never heard before.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
There’s this quote “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing”. I deeply resonate with this quote and think that every great thing in the world requires determination to start out.
