Hyeondo Park, at the age of 10, moved from Seoul, South Korea to Dallas, Texas with his mother and two brothers to reunite with his father. He had a special passion for comics growing up, and he sometimes waited until midnight at the local bookstore to get the latest issue. He loved the laughter, the excitement, the danger, and the suspense of comics, which he could read over and over again and could buy on his weekly allowance. It is one of many reasons why he attended and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2006 as a cartoonist. Now he hopes that his comics will provide the same excitement and entertainment value for others as they did for him when he was young.
