It never mattered to me that people in school didn’t think that country music was cool, and they made fun of me for it – though it did matter to me that I was not wearing the clothes that everybody was wearing at that moment.

When I started acting, I hoped I could make some kind of positive contribution to this world. When I get a letter from some kid in Nebraska saying that, prior to Han, nobody wanted to be his friend because Asians weren’t cool if they weren’t into martial arts – Now he’s accepted and recognized as a human being. That’s pretty awesome, right?
– Sung Kang

– Will Self
