John Cho was born in Seoul but lives in L.A. now; you probably know him best as the taller half of hazy-eyed buddy comedy duo Harold and Kumar. But he’s also a talented musician, the frontman of L.A. garage rock outfit Viva La Union.
He says it’s this latter discipline — something he controls, a muse to turn to whenever and wherever he needs it — is what keeps him sane. “You owe it to yourself to evaluate whether whatever you’re doing is bringing you closer to happiness or not,” Cho says.
And if it’s not?
“Do something about it.”
