“As an Asian Canadian woman, a Korean-Canadian woman w more experience and knowledge of the world of my characters,” wrote Yoon, while responding to an opinion piece about co-star Simu Liu’s recent comments regarding the show.

“The lack of Asian female, especially Korean writers in the writers room of Kims made my life VERY DIFFICULT & the experience of working on the show painful,” she continued.

Yoon also recalled how the cast “discovered storylines that were OVERTLY RACIST” after receiving advance drafts of the entire fifth season due to the pandemic.

One of the scenes involved Mrs. Kim wearing a pair of nude-coloured shorts, which made her appear “naked from the waist down”. 

Yoon claimed that the scene, which was ultimately cut at her request, “would have aired hours after 8 people, 6 Asian women, were shot in Atlanta, GA in a hate crime spree that shocked the nation. THIS IS WHY IT MATTERS.”
