Steven Yeun Biography

Steven Yeun (Korean: "??"?, born December 21, 1983) is a Korean-born American actor. Yeun is best known for his role of Glenn Rhee in the AMC television series The Walking Dead as part of the main cast. Prior to his international success in The Walking Dead, Yeun had guest-starred in The Big Bang Theory, did an independent film, and a couple of shorts. He has also completed voice work for the Crysis video game series.


The son of Je and June Yeun, Yeun was born in South Korea and raised in Troy, Michigan. His parents owned two beauty supply stores in Detroit.

Yeun received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Kalamazoo College in 2005. His interest in acting and improv came during his freshman year at Kalamazoo, when he watched the college's improv group, Monkapult. He auditioned for Monkapult, but was initially rejected before successfully joining the group during his sophomore year.

Yeun revealed to his parents that he planned to pursue an improv career in Chicago, instead of enrolling in law school or medical school. His parents, while unhappy with the decision, were supportive, according to Yeun, and gave him two years to pursue acting. He moved to Chicago in 2005, living in the city's Lincoln Square with his brother. Shortly after graduation, he joined Stir Friday Night, a sketch comedy group composed of Asian-American members.

Yeun joined The Second City in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in October 2009.
