    Steven Yeun chats with EW’s David Canfield chats about his role in ‘Minari.’

    A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, ‘Minari’ follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

    A few years ago, for what would become his movie breakout, Steven Yeun returned to his birth country — and unlocked something within himself. The actor had just come off his landmark six-season run on The Walking Dead the previous year, as well as a small but pivotal role (written just for him) in Bong Joon Ho’s cross-continental Okja. But for the beloved 2018 Korean drama Burning, in which Yeun played an enigmatic young man with a dangerous habit — and earned career-best reviews, winning a slew of top U.S. critics’ prizes — he found himself able to really let go. “I didn’t have to uphold this weird notion that I had to explain myself in every iteration of what I said or did,” Yeun, now 36, says. “It actually took a lot of weights off of me. I didn’t even know that I had all these weights on me when I went there.”
