On Oct 28th at Jebon Sushi, Kollaboration NY and Apex for Youth hosted their first sold out speaker series together with MC Jin. It was an intimate setting with about 75 people and he was there talking about his musical career as well as his TV career in Hong Kong.
It was very fascinating to hear him speak about his ups and downs as a musical artist. His stories about how he had to break through was very inspiring to any creative who is trying to do the same as he has done. MC Jin also just released and album which is currently available so if you are a fan, go and pick up a copy! At the end of the speaker session, he had several copies to sell and he was signing it for everyone there, so of course I got myself one. =)
In the one hour of him speaking, I learned so much about him as an artist and a person. From his personal life and how much he loves his son to how he treats his fans, MC Jin is a person who is very easy to get along with. I have to be honest that when I first saw him, I was afraid to approach him for a photo but he made it very easy to get over it when he started to make fun of my name haha.
