What’s up, internet? Let’s get into it. It’s time, once again, to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I’ve been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week’s Angry Reader is Harry Shum Jr.
Who are you?
I am Harry Shum Jr.
What are you?
A being trying to be more human everyday.
Where are you?
Currently in my Toronto home burning in the scorching sun.
Where are you from?
I hail from the tropics of Límon, Costa Rica
What do you do?
I hold a food trial daily where I judge food by how it reacts to my taste buds and dabble in the arts and entertainment field.
What are you all about?
I’m all about finding balance in everything. Learning about both (or multiple) sides of the story. I gravitate to things that make me go “ooooooh” and still fascinated by things that make me go “hmmmm” while avoiding most things that make me go “grrrrrrr.”
What makes you angry?
Close-minded people and mosquitos.
kore.com- An age-old pact between young friends on the cusp of adulthood – of the “If we’re both single by the time we turn 30, let’s get married to each other” variety – turns all too real for two millennials in “Single By 30,” an eight-episode rom-com by Wong Fu Productions.
Harry Shum Jr. plays Peter, the leading man, as he navigates the Los Angeles dating scene and as he rekindles his friendship with Kina Grannis’ Joanna, who as the series begins is back in town and in the midst of her own quarter-life crisis. The pair lead a cast of YouTube stars that includes Eric Ochoa and Anna Akana, fitting choices given the show’s home on YouTube Red, and its status as one of the video giant’s first experiments in original content creation on par with Netflix, Amazon or Hulu.
“It’s been great to hear how people are really relating to this story, or even talking about how they’ve also made pacts themselves in high school and are reliving it through the series,” Shum, who is currently filming for another series, “Shadowhunters,” in Toronto, said. As it turns out, the actor sees a lot of himself in Peter, in both background and in life perspective.
“[Like Peter] I also had that idea of, you have to be married at a certain age and the pressures of finding a girlfriend and thinking about when you’re going to have babies for your parents,” Shum said. “What I really relate to Peter is, he has this idea that he needs to get over, of what his life should be as opposed to what his life could be. That was a revelation for me when I realized that I live for myself in my own life.”
It didn’t take much to sell Shum on the the series – he’s been a close collaborator of Wong Fu’s Phil Wang and Wesley Chan for years, having starred in a handful of the duo’s shorts. What he’s appreciated about them over the years, he said, is the role they play in giving a voice to Asians in the industry.
Some of that has to do with Asian talents taking it upon themselves to begin a dialogue with showrunners and writers about diversity, Shum said, while some has to do with Asians creating their own platforms instead of lamenting the lack of one, in particular with the availability and growing influence of online vehicles like YouTube.
Wong Fu Productions reunited ‘Single by 30‘ cast (including Harry Shum Jr, Kina Grannis and Eric Ochoa) and producers Wesley Chan and Philip Wang for a livestream on their Facebook page. They watched episode 4 live and answered a few questions right after. Watch the stream below:
