Hi, I’m Seayoung (pronounced SHEE young). I’m a playwright who often writes about gross obsessions, strangeness, and Asian America. My play Jar of Fat, a darkly comedic Korean American fairy tale about the allure and dangers enmeshed within the quest for beauty and thinness, is the winner of the 2022 Yale Drama Series Prize.
