Niki Yang (Voice of Bmo) Interview: The Art of Storytelling

Published On January 9, 2013 | By Dave | features, interview, tv

Some random questions, but what is your favorite Korean food?

Kimbob (Editor’s note: Korean “sushi” rolls). One time, I seriously thought of starting a kimbob business in the streets of LA. Don’t you think it’s a good idea?

What kind of music do you like to listen to while you work?

My number one pandora channel is the Black keys station.

Were you a fan of “Gangnam Style” and do you think PSY would make a great guest on Adventure Time?

Ya, he is great. I am so impressed with how much impact he has made internationally as a pop star. He made Korea famous more than any politician could. And yes, I think he will be a great guest for the show. Actually, Pen was considering to have some korean pop stars to be a guest at one point. So I gave a whole list of people but it didn’t happen because of the production schedule. It may happen in the future! :)

Do you have any advice for aspiring voice actors or animators?

Try to be open minded, laugh, talk, experience and never stop believing in yourself. You are cool and your shit is hot.

What’s next for you?

I am developing shows with Disney and Nickelodeon now. I hope they do well, so one day I can hire Pen and Alex to do some voices for my show.:)
