Meet Jai Yunae: LA’s Own Actor by Day, Rapper by Night

Many of the talented that live in the Greater Los Angeles Area are likely not even from California. The melting pot in Southern California serves as a catalyst for young stars in the making with dreams of showcasing their skills in the entertainment industry. With that said, it’s no question why Jai Yunae – Korea-born rapper and actor who moved to and from Los Angeles to Arizona alongside her family – decided to return to the City of Angels.
