Get to Know Victoria Park from Wong Fu’s ‘Everything Before Us’


KoreAm and Audrey Magazine teamed up to get acquainted with the cast of Wong Fu Productions’ first feature film, Everything Before Us, a sci-fi romantic drama that follows two couples in a world where the Department of Emotional Integrity (DEI) scores all romantic relationships.

Victoria Park first worked with Wong Fu in their 2012 short film Take It Slow, co-starring with Ki Hong Lee. In Everything Before Us, Park plays Haley, a high school senior who registers in an official DEI relationship with her boyfriend Seth before the two of them head to different colleges. As the long-distance relationship begins to strain, Haley struggles to balance her exciting college life and spending time with her boyfriend.

About the Film


1. Describe your character in three words.
Smart. Driven. Dreamer.

2. What is the most crucial part of being in a romantic relationship?
Loyalty. And a shared sense of humor. (I cheated and picked two, sorry!)

3. What would your real-life relationship score be, and why?
Probably pretty high. Because I’m obnoxiously an high-achiever. It would also probably be a number ending in 0 or 5 because I’m obnoxiously OCD.

4. Any bloopers or memorable episodes on set?
The day Ki Hong came in with an enormous pimple on his face (ironically, on the day we had our most intimate scene). Was my rejection of him acting or reacting to the pimple? I’ll never tell.

5. What is your opinion of Wong Fu as film directors?
No exaggeration, these guys are great. As directors, as filmmakers, as people. Can’t say enough good things about them.

About Victoria


1. What always makes you laugh?
A good pun.

2. Your go-to comfort food?
Macaroni and cheese.

3. Currently on “repeat” on your ipod?
“Bright” by Echosmith

4. A guilty pleasure you don’t feel guilty about?
Taylor Swift. I have every single one of her albums, and I am not ashamed to admit it. (I love you Taylor!)

5. Current favorite place?
The top of Griffith Park, looking down over L.A. at night. It’s so peaceful up there.

6. Favorite drink, alcoholic or otherwise?
312 (a beer from Chicago) is my absolute favorite. The rare times I find it, I always have to buy a whole case.

7. Current obsessions?
French bulldogs.

8. Pet peeve?
Excuses (my own or others’)

9. Habit you need to break?
My addiction to the snooze button.

10. Hidden talent?
I can pick things up with my toes. Sexy, I know.

11. Talent you’d like to have?
I’d like to be able to pick things up with my ears too. JK, I can do that.

12. Word or phrase you most overuse?
I’m trying to cut “um” from my vocabulary. Umm… It’s not going well.

13. Favorite hashtag?
Anything ironic or obnoxiously long. Katie Savoy is the queen of hashtags.

14. Greatest fear?
I don’t know about greatest, but my most irrational fear is ants. *shudder*

15. If you weren’t doing what you are doing now, what occupation would you be doing?
I’ve actually always wanted to start my own clothing line. Mostly because I hate shopping, and would love to just be able to make whatever it is that I’m picturing in my head.
