Choi Si Won - Jaeson Ma are Soldier of Light

written by Jaeson Ma in his page


There’s an article I just got word of on a popular Korean Pop Culture site about me and my fellow soldier of light… Siwon Choi (Super Junior) read here. Just fyi I have been mentoring and ministering to Korean pop artists & media executives in that industry for the last past year. I can’t necessarily get into details, but I realized that God had called me into this movement about a year ago ever since there was a rise of celebrity suicides in 2008.

I will share the entire encounter some other time of how God sent me into Korea pop culture to spread His love and light to those in this influential industry. For those of you who do not follow KPOP culture… it is quite an amazing phenomenon. I call Seoul, Korea the new Hollywood of Asia in this decade… in the 80’s you had Hong Kong canto pop culture, in the 90’s you had JPOP or Japanese Pop culture arise, but in the millennium… most definitely Korean Pop Culture has taken center stage in influencing popular youth culture across Asia. From Korean Dramas (those ones that your mom and sisters are addicted to and cry daily from watching) to KPOP music which in my opinion is the most progressive and of excellence in production. But what is most fascinating is the die hard fan following phenomenon of Koreans that I have witnessed. The FANS ARE CRAZY… I mean they really worship and idolize celebrities and artists to a whole new level… they follow on twitter, they buy tickets months in advance, they vote, follow, emulate and support their every move, action and lifestyle…

What does this equate to me? Well, these pop artists are all in a major position to influence others for either the better or worst. My heart is to help each of these pop artists realize they are not just celebrities, but they are social role models. That each of them have been given a platform for a greater purpose. That the lives they live will influence the next generation and that they play a crucial role in shaping their values, beliefs and behavior. That it’s not about us, but it’s about God… its about being a light, being everything God created us to be to inspire others to live for something greater than themselves…

Many kpop artists like Siwon, my friends Tiffany and Sooyoung from SNSD, MC Mong, Brian Joo, Jinu Sean (Sean), Tim, and many others I won’t name that I pray for and support realize they are not just artists, but they are inspirations… they are servants of Christ first, Entertainers Second. And as they follow Christ and imitate His likeness, others will do the same and make this world a happier and brighter place :) Hence, SOLDIERS OF LIGHT who fight for God’s kingdom on earth, not mans. Also remember no one is perfect, so please give grace when everyone of us do make mistakes… especially artists who face so many human pressures and expectations. We need to realize Christianity is not so much a religion as it is a relationship with a loving God who loves us as we are, not how perfect we are. This is why we need grace…^^ Pray for the artists and entertainers in kpop culture to know God, to make Him known and to be protected from the love of this world as they do God’s will…

ps. I never listened to kpop music before till I started ministering there…and I must say, it’s pretty dang addicting :) my current track I can’t stop listening too… 2NE1 “I Don’t Care” haha… super dope!

Servants of God First, Entertainers Second

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
