“Asians narratively in shows are insignificant. They’re the cop, or the waitress, or whatever it is. You see them in the background. So to be in this position [of the romantic male lead]… is a bit of a landmark. I would call this revolutionary. It’s certainly a personal revolution for me.”

In a recent study conducted by the University of Southern California, out of the 3,932 speaking characters evaluated from 600 popular films made between 2007 and 2013, only 4.4% were Asian. The same study found that Asian men were least likely to be depicted as sexually attractive or having a romantic relationship on screen.
