In his latest film, The One Thing: A Look Back at 2016, Billy Yang reflects on lessons learned from 2016, and looks forward to 2017. His mission: to keep living a “life that is true to me.” Against backdrops from Korea, Mont Blanc and the Gobi Desert, Yang tells us about his quest to live with authenticity, valuing experiences over material things, and encourages us to consider our own dreams for the coming  year.

“From being around this little sport of ours, I’ve witnessed time and time again what the human spirit can achieve.”
