"From the beginning when I started to even today I’ve felt that the opportunities for Asian-American actors, especially males, are so few and far between. And, the opportunities that do arise are usually the stereotypical ones: techie-geek, kung-fu kid or Asian gangster. These are not characters, but are caricatures of what the industry and mainstream generally view us and I think it is up to us and that talent to break that mold in becoming who we truly are which is an aspect and part of America as a whole." - from halfkorean.com, Sept. 29, 2009
