Used to run into Jon on the streets of Seoul, SK and chat before he became famous. Nice guy. Wish him the best with his young family.

He’s a doll…

Absolutely loved him in “Flash Forward”…

Too bad the networks canned it after one season…

A truly original and unique show.

Zoey on

I agree DaisyMoon. He’s adorable and I was just starting to like Flash-Forward when they canceled it.

As an Asian myself, he is by far THE HOTTEST Asian actor out there!!!

Congrats to him and his family.

Congratulations! I would like to know his secret for looking so young at the age of 40.

Congrats to them! But here’s something I never understand. If celebrities want to keep their children private (which John and his wife obviously want to do, as they haven’t released the names or birthdates of either their children, nor have we, at least to my knowledge, ever seen their son), then why do they bother to announce their births at all?!

I completely understand not wanting to share your child with the world, but then why even share that you’ve had one (or more)?

I’m confused. I watched his video about his encounter with Morrissey and I was certain he was saying that he’s gay. Google it and watch it and you’ll see what I mean.

I liked him in Star Trek, btw.

Congrats John Cho. Love him in all of the Harold and Kumar movies.

Jennifer. Disagree! It’s still Chow Yun Fat!

Susan on

Congrats to him. I love him in Harold and Kumar…omg, one of the funnest movies ever! He’s older than I thought. I had no idea he was over 40. I would have thought 32ish.

congratulations to the happy family!

It’s the Asian curse.

Being Asian myself, I’m in my late 30’s and when I tell people this they are usually shocked and they tell me that I look at least in my mid 20’s and that my mother can pass as my older sister.

Which is probably one of the reasons why I think John is HOT!!! BEST OF LUCK TO HIM AND HIS FAMILY!!! By the way, John has posted pictures of his son. His son’s name is Kage.

Love John in Star Trek. Congratulations!

^Sure you did, seeing as how John emigrated to the States as a young child.
