Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



Entertainment is big business. Nowadays some Asian countries have the time and the wherewithal to showcase their talents. You think Hollywood is taking notice? You can bet they are.

Pusan, sometimes, Busan, Korea is hosting the Pusan International Film Festival. Pusan is on the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula. There is a naval port there and I was once chased by a Korean prostitute.

Why did she didn’t catch me? I wonder that now….anyway.

Andy Lau is the toast of the town and the festival. He received the filmmaker of the year award and was given honored guest status for his efforts in promoting new Asian film talent.

Lau, 45, is an actor and now a producer. His most recent film, a 2002 Hong Kong crime thriller “Internal Affairs” was the inspiration for “The Departed,” a good flick, in my judgment.

Not only does Asia inspire good stories/movies, it also is producing its own good actors/actresses and movies.

Now Asia has Lau to teach Hollywood stars how to give back to so there can future stars.

What do you think?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
