Soojeong, the perfectionist clown tries really hard at everything she does. Then one day some sex stuff happens and life gets confusing. But have no fear! Soojeong’s joyful exploration asks the complex question: why is cum?

You can see her act naturally in A GOOD PERSON opposite Florence Pugh, Netflix’s KALEIDOSCOPE, Apple TV’s SERVANT, and HBO Max SEARCH PARTY.
