Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg P.C. has secured an O-1 visa approval on behalf of Ms. Eunyoung Jung, a highly talented actress from South Korea, based on her extraordinary achievement in the performing arts industry.

Ms. Eunyoung Jung (p.k.a. Bona Jung) has performed in starring roles in South Korea and in the United States, which have received critical acclaim and media attention. Her recent performances include The Weird Tree (at the 2015 NYC International Fringe Festival), the award-winning production Lost in Place (2015 Planet Connections Festivity), and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Classic Stage Company/The Young Company).  Ms. Jung has also starred in the SAG film Viral. Due to her proven talent, Ms. Jung has been invited to share her creative expertise in teaching courses at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. We look forward to watching Ms. Jung’s career continue to flourish in the United States!

In order to qualify for an O-1 visa which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field.

In addition, the individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets 3 of the 6 evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).
