Steven Yeun Covers 'KoreAm' Magazine

Steven Yeun suits up for the cover of the October 2012 issue of KoreAm.

Here’s what the 28-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On Walking Dead fans: “They love our show and they spread it around, and whenever we meet anyone, they’re like, ‘Your show, I can’t wait for it to come back, like, it’s so amazing. Our whole family gets together and sits down and watches it.’ And then you question whether they should have kids or not because they’re probably showing it to small children. If that’s the case, if you’re getting everybody together to watch it, all we want to do is make this really good. And you know the third season is kind of [when] to fine-tune and make better what we’ve already established.”

On his fans in Korea: “I went to Korea last year after we wrapped and I came back with full-blown anxiety—I’m not even joking, my stomach shut down. … [The show’s] popular in Korea and I’m Korean, and so it just becomes this storm. It’s nuts, it’s really nuts, like fans waiting for you outside your hotel. For me it’s a constant battle of, like, I don’t know if I deserve all this. And I think that’s where I was finding a lot of anxiety because, you know, when someone treats you like you’re Brad Pitt, but you’re not even close to Brad Pitt, it’s weird, you know what I mean? You’re just like, ‘No, no, no, you don’t understand. Just a year ago, I was eating tuna out of a can.’”

On his co-star Lauren Cohan: “We’re really good friends,” he says, “[She] and I have a lot of fun on set, and she’s a brilliant actor, so it feels really good chemistry-wise to play that relationship.”
