Steven Yeun Covers 'KoreAm' Magazine

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.”

@AMY: Amy, considering the fact that you can barely spell (“asain”?), let alone think, I’d say you don’t even deserve to be called a troll.

Sorry Rick Yune you’ve been replace in my fantasy league of hot Asian actors. Steven Yuen I welcome you to my all male harem hopefully we’ll be together for a long time. A long sexy time that is until you age out. As yet only Alec Baldwin has aged out of my male harem.

Hes very goodlooking

I love The Walking Dead! Glad Steven is famous in his home country! I cannot wait when TWD does flashback on these characters’s previous lives before the zombie apocalypse. I love Glenn’s character as well. I still can’t believe he was just a pizza delivery guy. hahaha

@AMY: I love you and your comments

@AMY: and you suck your own ass so deal with it.

@ccc: Screw you, you wish you were my hot ass. You want to dig your touch inside my wet flesh! You Pig.@ccc: Of course you do, I’m amazing! Duh!

@AMY you are probably a male with nothing going for you what’s your claim to fame, what have you done lately? People that can do losers like you bash..

I’m one of those fans that its waiting for a new episode of this nice tv show even if the season 2 argument was a bit boring and slower than the zombies itself. I hope we see more zombie hunting in the following episodes of the 3rd season.

Great guy! Funny too :)

@AMY: You’re not worthy of breathing the same air as the rest of us.

seems to be a decent fellow.
