Jun Kim off the court.
[From NYC commish...]
Dream League isn’t just about basketball. Sometimes we like to make mention of things going on outside of hoops. Not that often, but sometimes. There was the time we wrote about hockey teams. There was the occasion Mike Owh wrote about a camping trip gone awry. And there was yet another instance of when he (who goes off on the most tangents) shared his story of how he got up onstage and stripped down to his skivvies in order to win a toy car. Hilarious.
Well, today, we want to go outside the box once more and bring to your attention (if you don’t already know) something known as the Tribeca Film Festival that is going on right in our own backyard. Yes, things happen outside of our basketball games in this city –- weird, huh?
One film in particular you gotta try to check out is Mike Kang's West 32nd. The world premiere is Saturday night and there are four more screenings of it afterwards. It stars John Cho. It stars Grace Park. It also stars a man who played in the Dream League AAA in NYC last season named Jun Kim. Kim played in just two games while he was here for the summer on now defunct Run B&C. He averaged a modest 4.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and smokin’ 3.0 steals per game, but he’ll impress you far more with his turn as the cool, calm, cigarette sucking (don’t do that in real life folks) bad guy in this film. If you pay close enough attention, you might see a certain commissioner in the film during a sweet scene too.
Many of the screenings are already sold out online, but tickets are available for day-of folks who have the desire/patience to wait in line an hour or so beforehand. There are also parties parties parties with cast and crew both tonight (Gypsy Tea) and Saturday night (at Maru in K-town.) The DL's going Hollywood, baby!
