#Quote
1Many people, not just Asians, are more concerned with hustling and getting to meetings with contacts to gain success.
2People think that Detroit is this barren wasteland. While there are parts that are not as nice as others, the misconception is not true. It is definitely not a thriving community in Detroit, but it is getting there. There is a lot of heart and love in this city.
3Whatever I lack in size and strength and speed, I kind of make up for in being grittier. When it comes to something like basketball I'm definitely not the best guy on the court, but I love elbowing and pushing people out or boxing them out.
4I believe that we are still hovering around the realm of Asians playing all types of Asians. I do not see that changing any time soon just because there is a limited pool of Asian actors.
5I felt like I've needed to ask my parents up until about four years ago about everything. They have helped me tremendously, I came out of college with no debt. Everything they made, they just poured into my education.
6I grew up in Michigan, so I played hockey, football and basketball. I played a little bit of lacrosse, too. My brother played more lacrosse and ran track.
7I was a psych major in college and I actually owned two white lab rats. I had to train them and I took them home so that's just kind of missing for me.
8Maybe it's a cultural thing, being Korean, but my first reflex has always been to exude humility - but it doesn't help you in acting. For acting, humility isn't the best thing. It'll weaken your work.
9Well, my parents originally wanted me to become a doctor - that's why I was in school; I was pre-med, and I graduated with a degree in psychology and a concentration in neuroscience. Really, the plan was for me to go to med school.
10What brought me to L.A. was work! I moved to Chicago after college - I went to Kalamazoo - did my nerd thing, graduated, and moved to Chicago to pursue improv.
11I like documentaries because there's nothing to nitpick or criticize about scenes if they aren't just right. It's about honesty and real-life circumstances coming out. Granted it can be swayed by how people tell that story, but overall, I like it because it is true.
12I'm Korean-American. Not Colombian. My parents are first-generation, and I'm like... in-between, because I moved over here when I was four or five.
13At the end of the day, if you can't say a line right, it does not matter who your contacts are.
14I am a huge Pistons fan. Those were some of my best times in college, watching the Detroit Pistons.
15I took up boxing to get in shape for filming because it's grueling - all the running, the heat, the yelling, the crying that we do.
16I was raised in a Christian household and heard a lot of praise music, so that's what helps me get to an emotional place.
17I'm good at keeping secrets, but if it's not something super serious I usually tell people not to tell me because I'll tell someone else.
18I'm not much of a horror fan. When it comes to ghost stuff and demon stuff, I can't watch that.
19I'm stupidly curious. I will go and touch anything until I find out that it's very harmful.
20If you work in Chicago in the improv scene, anyone is happy for you if you get a job.
#Fact
1He was born in Korea; but grew up in Troy, Michigan. Troy is a suburb of Detroit.
2Steven was born in Korea. He and his family moved to the United States, to the state of Michigan - just like his character Glenn in the AMC hit TV series The Walking Dead.
3He received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Kalamazoo College in 2005. His interest in acting and improv came during his freshman year at Kalamazoo, when he watched the college's improv group, Monkapult.
4He speaks a good amount of Korean.
