You might be familiar with afterschoolspecial‘s frontman DANakaDAN. He hasn’t really openly shared his background as a Korean American Adoptee. His last name is Matthew and his parents are of English and German descent. Recently, he opened up about his background at Korean Heritage Camp, a camp dedicated to bringing together families of adoptees to connect with one another. It was one of the most meaningful experiences he’s ever been involved in. He met families and community members from all around the country who convene in Colorado at Snow Mountain Ranch to learn more about the adoptee experience. Read more about Dan Matthews experience here. Props to DANakaDAN for sharing his experience and being a role model for other adoptees.
Also if you’re going to be in San Diego for Comic-con, afterschoolspecial will be celebrating their fourth year anniversary.
