I first saw this Conan O’Brien video posted by a friend on Facebook and immediately re-shared it, and saw a few other friends quickly re-share it. Conan and actor Steve Yeun for some reason decide to go to a Korean Spa in Koreantown in LA. I’ve personally never been to Korea or to a Korean Spa, so I was curious about the video. The video is hilarious.
No doubt, Yeun is making the media rounds lately, since I had already started to blog about the premiere of the 2nd half of the 5th season of The Walking Dead NPR has a great interview with Yuen (download MP3 here):
“Glenn’s the Korean pizza delivery guy turned zombie-killing ladies’ man. … Yeun loves that Glenn is able to own his heritage without it defining him as a character. Besides couple of references to his Koreanness, he’s just like everybody else on the show, doing his best not to get devoured by the undead. And his Asian-American fans are eating it up. … Steven Yeun is now something of a sex symbol, with teenagers to grown women of every race and ethnicity swooning on social media.”
I’m glad that Yeun and The Walking Dead is getting all this media exposure!
