How does it feel to personally carry the high expectations of the entire Korean-American community?
"My back hurts!" says John Cho, laughing.
"On a serious note, it can get paralyzing," adds the actor. "But now, there are so many Korean actors out there doing their thing, it's great to see."
It wasn't always that way.
"When I was starting out, it was really hard," says Cho, 41. "I tried to do things like turn down auditions I thought were stereotypical. That sort of thing, small as it was, was difficult. Now it seems like I don't even have to make those decisions anymore. People understand what I do and I'm not faced with that on a day-to-day basis like I used to be."
