General Manager & Couple Manager
In 1999, DUO USA opened in Los Angeles and was seeking a couple manager. When I first saw the job advertisement, I was reminded of my participation in a program called ‘The Studio of Love’ when I was in college in Korea.
I confidently submitted my resume and was hired as a couple manager at DUO USA. While I was happy to be employed, I was somehow hesitant at first due to a sense of profound responsibility; could I really help people find an ideal person to spend the rest of their lives with?
However, my husband assured me that it would be a perfect job for me and was confident that I could make a positive difference. I have now been working happily at DUO USA for over 25 years.
Nowadays, 2nd generation Korean-American’s have been joining DUO USA in large numbers and more people get counseling for themselves than their parents did. Although almost 60% of the children of Korean-Americans are married to non-Koreans, many Korean parents would like to have a Korean son or daughter in law. Also, there are many people who are looking for Korean spouses, but they are sometimes hard to find as many are so busy with their careers and businesses. I think that this job fits me well and it is a privilege to help introduce quality people in the hopes that they are truly compatible and will marry. It is not always an easy job and it is always hard work. I think I found my calling and I am so fortunate to be a matchmaker and to see so many couples getting married. I LOVE marathons and I run competitions in New York, Chicago, Boston, LA, San Francisco, Canada and more! I wake up at 4:30 am every morning, do an hour of yoga, commute to work, read books, and write a column of marriage stories that result from DUO USA. I am very grateful to work for DUO USA and as long as I’m healthy, I will put all my effort into DUO USA and promise that I will try as hard as I can to find the best partner for all DUO USA members in the future. Thank you, DUO USA and thank you to all of our members!
