Sooo this is exciting for me because I actually know him! I watch him on Kim's Convenience where he plays the father of the family the story is about, aka appa which is father in Korean. It's a comedy so the episodes are both short and funny. I'd recommend it!

Him replying to fans with gifs of himself has to be the purest thing I've ever seen

Thanks for making this!

My mom's obsessed with Kim's Convenience! I've watched a few episodes with her and it's pretty funny and he's a good actor! Watching it all the way through is on my long to-watch list

Oh I didn't know that! That's cute


I love him replying with the gifs too! And he seems so excited! I'm happy about this casting!

Of course!

That's so cute that your mom likes the show I hope you can see a couple more episodes before ATLA premieres I already know he'll have Iroh's humorous side down pat.

Being a k-pop fan has taught me some Korean things

It's so wonderful! I also like that he gave a shoutout to Mako

I'll definitely try to watch! I like comedies since they're a little shorter and easier to watch. And I have time

That's very true about Iroh's humorous side! I feel like I always picture him as being serious and wise but he had some funny moments too!

This was super sweet too!

That is the plus of them! Also they can give a nice pick me up

He has a nice blend of humor and wisdom

All the actors seem so respectful to the source material

I like that he retweeted this

That's true! Some days you just need a pick me up like that.

Yeah I love how everyone seems really respectful of the animated show. It makes me more confident that they'll do it justice.

I love that he retweeted that Also I don't think that tweet is inaccurate. He kind of looks like Iroh already.

I love how much he hyped up the young cast! That's got to be so exciting for them since they're all a bit more inexperienced.

I also love him talking about representation in the show! Representation has come a really long way but having a cast like they do of all Asian or Native actors is still really big, especially since the show was inspired by anime and some aspects of those cultures. I know we've already talked about this a bit but I am so glad they casted properly (unlike the movie).

Such a major upgrade from the movie and it deserves the praise I'm so happy to see representation continue to grow It's so nice to hear him talk about it and have him share that with us.


This is cute

It's a very exciting time to be a fan. And a very exciting time for media in general I think

Aw that's so cute! We have another bromance Happy he has the stamp of approval.

He totally looks like Iroh there already even without the hair! Also aw he cried I love how much he seems to love the show.

I love that he used a Kim's Convenience gif again I'd totally do the same if I had gifs of me.

He really does! Also I feel like he doesn't need the pointy bits of Iroh's look That works better in a cartoon space.

I love it too It must be so fun to be able to search through gifs of yourself.

Yeah I think certain bits of the character design will really only work in cartoons! The pointy beard bits being one of them. I'm also curious how they'll do Zuko's ponytail but that's another post

It's got to be a lot of fun.
