The Walking Dead just had its season three finale and as expected, the fans are already restless to begin the next season. While there is a divide between fans who liked and disliked the final episode, there is one thing we all can agree on – we want more. To say that the show is doing well would be an understatement. After all, it is named the most-watched drama series in basic cable history. A scroll through my facebook newsfeed on a Sunday night is enough for me to know how popular the show is. So if you (like countless others) are worried about withdrawals until the next season comes out, we’re here to help.
Here’s Steven Yeun’s recent appearance on Conan. He talks facial hair, strip clubs, and sports. We’ll let you see for yourself!
Haven’t had enough Steven Yeun in your life? We haven’t either. Lucky for all us, the Korean-American actor was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night! They discussed everything from his choice of wearing no socks to his father’s disapproval of acting (thank goodness Yeun didn’t listen!) We’ll let you see for yourself.

Korean American actor Steven Yeun is no stranger to us here at Audrey. We’ve featured him in our magazine, in a number of our online posts, and he was the Cover Boy to KoreAm’s October 2012 Issue. He’s become a favorite face of Asian-Americans in the media with his role as Glenn on AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead. On the most recent episode, we were pleasantly surprised to see a character aside from Glenn stand up for the Asian-American community:
In the first season of The Walking Dead, Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) points out an Asian stereotype that many of us are familiar with- All Asians are the same/Chinese.
Daryl: You got some balls for a Chinaman.
Glenn: I’m Korean.
Now in it’s third season, The Walking Dead shows Daryl in the middle of a heated argument with his older brother Merle (Michael Rooker).
Merle: Damn near killed the Chinese kid.
Daryl: He’s Korean!
Character development? Yup. Dropping some knowledge on his brother about the Asian Community? You bet. Good job Daryl!

Audrey Magazine came out to support our sister publication, KoreAm Journal, for their annual event, Unforgettable at the Park Plaza Hotel on . The affair was bigger than ever, selling out prior to the event, and boasted a roster of big names within the Korean American community. Contributing Editor Ada Tseng and I took on the big task (read: fun task) of interviewing some of the red carpet arrivals, which included The Walking Dead‘s Steve Yeun, singer Clara C, R&B artist Amerie, and the recent winners of the Great Food Truck Race – the boys of Seoul Sausage Company.

Are You There, Chelsea?
Inspired by Chelsea Handler’s 2008 best-selling book, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, the show stars Laura Prepon as Chelsea Newman and stand-up comedian Ali Wong as Olivia, Chelsea’s best friend since childhood, who has a healthy love life and dreams beyond a New Jersey sports bar. The series follows Chelsea’s narration and observations of her circle of working-class twenty-something friends.
Returning for its second season, the hit TV drama The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic book series, is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies. A small group of survivors, including Glenn, played by Korean American actor Steven Yeun (The Big Bang Theory), must fight for survival. Here, we pick Yeun’s brain.
If I were a zombie: I’d go to the nearest steakhouse and pick out a person who had just eaten a nice filet or T-bone. That’d be like eating a steak wrapped in bacon, but human-sized.
In Glenn’s zombie survival pack: Spam, candy and a bunch of hats.
Monster I want to be: I’d love to turn into a Gila monster. All they do is eat, sleep and sunbathe. Sign me up.

AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead may have dropped its old writers and picked up a new season, but until filming starts, Korea-born, Detroit native Steven Yeun fills us in on his college days, typical ways, and inspirations as well as fears. Oh, and he also discusses his character Glenn’s unknown fate in the upcoming 13 episodes. Who knows if the original series will follow suit with the original comic book series that it’s based on, but one thing we do know — you can get a copy of The Walking Dead Season 1 DVD, out today.
