I reveal many details already, and for privacy, I don't want to reveal any more like ages. My son currently attends university in USA.
Since Son was 14, he's had huge crush on Tiffany Young, a Korean American pop idol. This was reasonable to me at first. When ever we discuss her, he says they have much in common. I agree. Tiffany's mom died by suicide, when Tiffany was 12. My husband died by suicide, when Son was 13.
Like Tiffany, Son has scoliosis. Like Tiffany, Son grew up in Greater Los Angeles his whole life. Like Tiffany's parents, my husband was and I am first generation Korean immigrants. We are American citizens who live in Greater L.A.
Like Tiffany, Son's thinking of working in Seoul and learning more about his Korean roots. He's working on getting fluent in Korean. They both speak out on anti-Asian discrimination. They both have identity crisis. They don't perfectly fit in Seoul or California, because their identities split between Korea and U.S. Son likes the good parts of each country, and dislikes the bad.
I thought all this was a fad and phase.....his crush will go away when he meets new people at college. But it hasn't! He still hopes to befriend her. I want to be realistic. As matter of fact, there's always some chance - even if teeny - that he befriends her! Who knows? Some celebrities have married their fans! Perhaps Tiffany and my son will cross paths and meet in real life! It's unrealistic to tell Son that this will never happen.
I just feel he's spending too much time on her social media! Anyone got any advice please? Can it help Son to meet Tiffany at a fan event or fan sign? Perhaps he can write a letter to give her, to say she is such important role model and mental support to him?
