The Kpop sensation and former f(x) member is embarking on a new path in her show “I’ll Ask The Stupid Questions.” On October 27th, it was announced that the program would premiere on October 29th. The series will tackle important issues such as homelessness in LA, mental health, and politics.
The first episode explores why people, young and old, do not vote and why they should. Throughout this episode, Amber will interview congressman “Jimmy Gomez,” asking him the questions some may be afraid to ask.
In her own words, Amber talks more about the new series.
“Growing up, I always felt like Curious George. I had so many questions about every little thing. As I’ve grown older, I realized that I’ve become afraid of looking clueless and dumb. I feel like that fear has stunted my personal growth, and I’ve had many conversations with people who’ve felt the same way. “I’ll Ask The Stupid Questions” is me trying to learn how to be curious again. I want to normalize learning and that it’s okay to ask stupid questions because you can get some really smart answers.” said Amber Liu.
The new program will air on the streaming platform Ficto. A hybrid service that first made headlines for its interactive content allowing the viewer to participate in the show “through submissions, choices, social-based polling, and location-based activations.”
CEO Mike Esola talked a bit about working with Amber.
“We couldn’t be happier to work with Amber— she is one of the most talented artists out there today and someone who cares deeply about real issues. We have been following her career closely and are really impressed with how she engages in the communities that surround her. Having her tackle these topics with vulnerability and grace is a great way to kick off our slate of Ficto’s Original Fall programming,” said Mike Esola, Founder and CEO of Ficto.
