Harry Shum, Jr.: Glee is Bigger Than We Think!

Harry Shum, Jr.: Glee is Bigger Than We Think!

Harry Shum, Jr. shows off his toned body in this shirtless shot for Yellow magazine’s November 2010 issue!

The 28-year-old Glee actor also covers the magazine! Here’s what Harry had to share:

On his most memorable fan moment: “After a tour, a fan came up to us with her daughter and told us that the show meant so much to her and her daughter. She said, ‘We had a terrible relationship and never talked to each other. We started watching Glee together every Tuesday night and it brought us closer together. Now, we’re the best of friends.’ It made me realize that this show is bigger than we think.”

On the memorable iPod silhouette dancing ads: “I did about 10 or 12 iPod ads. The first ones were just silhouettes but later they showed my face and shadow dancing. It was so cool! When I tell people all the things I have done such as dancing for J. Lo and Beyonce, they just say, ‘Cool, cool.’ But when I tell them I did those iPod commercials, they’re like ‘What? Oh my god, that’s crazy!’”

On how his Asian heritage has influenced who he is today: “I’m still very involved with my cultural background in the sense that I speak Chinese and still learn from my mom about how to cook ethnic foods, my heritage and how things are done. Of course, I live in America; my main culture’s here, so I want to keep a balance. I don’t want to lose one or the other; I want them to merge. It’s very important to me that when I have kids, they learn about Chinese culture and speak Chinese. To pass this on to my kids and their kids’ kids as my parents did with me is really important to me.”
