Steven Yeun on Beef

Steven Yeun’s upcoming Netflix series, Beef, is a comedy that explores the darkest impulses of two strangers who are brought together by a road rage incident. Starring alongside Ali Wong, Yeun discusses the show’s humor, revealing that it took him a second to appreciate the duality of its profoundly moving scenes.

“It’s inherently funny to watch someone try not to cry, then give into it,” he explains. The humor in Beef lies in its ability to juxtapose darkness and humor, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre. The series is set to be released on April 6, 2023, and promises to be a gripping and hilarious ride.

Steven Yeun on Culture

Connecting with WSJ. Magazine, Steven Yeun, reflects on his cultural background, sharing that growing up, he was often preoccupied with the thoughts of others. “What does that person think I am?” he remembers asking himself. However, he notes that he always had a clear sense of self, saying, “I was pretty clear about who I was, to myself, from a really early age, and so life had been me mostly trying to explain myself.”

Yeun believes that culture is beautiful but not the entirety of who we are. He hopes that through his work, people from all backgrounds can relate to the characters he portrays. “Isn’t that the ultimate goal for any outsider group? To say, ‘Oh, you relate to me; we’re the same,'” he asks.
