Sung Kang (Korean: Kang Sung-Ho; Korean: 강성호; born April 8, 1972) is an American actor, known for his role as Han Seoul-Oh in the film Better Luck Tomorrow (2002) and The Fast and the Furious franchise.
Life and career
His first major role was in Better Luck Tomorrow (2002), in which he played Han, an aloof gang member. He was one of the stars in The Motel, in which he played Sam Kim. He played the recurring character Han in The Fast and the Furious film series, appearing in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6. He also had a role in Jet Li's film War (2007), playing an FBI agent, and was featured in the movie Forbidden Warrior as Doran, a son of Genghis Khan.
On MADtv, Sung has played the recurring role of the narcissistic President Gin Kew Yun Chun Yew Nee in the Korean drama parody, "Tae Do (Attitudes and Feelings, Both Desirable and Sometimes Secretive)." Kang also had a small role in the action movie Live Free or Die Hard, and he appeared in Walter Hill's movie Bullet to the Head (2013) as Detective Taylor Kwon, opposite Sylvester Stallone.
Kang is featured in the music video "Lie" for the South Korean band g.o.d.
Kang has said that before he was cast as Han in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift he was unaware of the drifting culture that existed in Japan. It was not until he began researching the part that he perfected his skills in this popular sport, which is a global craze.
In september 2016, Sweden's largest magazines and media sites covered the story about the Swedish Top Model Ellinor Bjurström who politely rejected Kang's flirt at Eclipse, W Hotel, a Barcelona night club using the words "Okey, fun, but I’m not falling for you just because you’re in a movie, and I don’t like having your hand there”. Kang was apparently not happy about this, and told the night club's guards to escort her out and Kang also smiled and showed her the finger. After much discussion with the management the Swedish model was allowed to stay and was offered free drinks the whole evening
