When asked whether he has gotten any offers to venture into Hollywood during his 20-year career, Jung Woo Sung replied, “Going abroad should not be an actor’s ultimate goal.”
He added, “Of course, filming foreign projects is up to the individual, and they will have a reason for doing so.” Then he frankly stated, “Hollywood is a white-dominated industry, so unfortunately the main character has to be white. But I want to be a main character.”
He further explained, “I’m not sure why Asian actors must make it their goal to enter Hollywood, if it means that they will end up playing villains and supporting characters.”

Holder now exits after a series of successes in the past year, having received accolades from community activists for his leadership in investigating and responding to the police shooting of an unarmed teenager in Ferguson. Holder has often spoken about race relations in blunter terms than the president, and to this day tells friends and colleagues that he stands by his “nation of cowards” remark and thinks it led to a vital national debate about racial justice.
At a speech this week at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice, Holder said the Ferguson shooting and subsequent protests have left the country at a “moment of decision” about how police interact with racial minorities.
The attorney general also proudly noted that the federal prison population has dropped by nearly 5,000 inmates this year, the first decline in decades.
While Holder has no immediate plans after he leaves office, a Justice Department official said, he has spoken with friends and colleagues about establishing a center to continue his work on restoring trust between law enforcement and minority communities.
