Best Films and TV Shows starring Steven Yeun

1. The Walking Dead:

The Walking Dead is a show that needs no introduction. It has been one of the most popular shows of all time, as well as a very well-acclaimed one in its initial seasons. One of the best characters that the show ever had was none other than Steven Yeun’s Glenn. The actor was so good in that role that his unfortunate exit from the show led to the quality of the whole show deteriorating as well.

2. Okja:

Bong Joon Ho is a name every film lover knows. The Oscar-winning director of Parasite had previously made a film about the environmental dangers in the form of Okja. Steven Yeun was part of an ensemble cast that included Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano as well.

 In this film by acclaimed Korean director Lee Chang-dong, Yeun gives one of the best performances of his career that ultimately elevates the film and leaves a lingering yet disturbing impression. It’s a film that grows on you and makes you think about many things in your life—a complete and utterly hypnotic odyssey into three characters' lives.

5. Minari:

Minari is not just a film; it’s a representation of the migrant experience told through very engaging and subtle filmmaking.

Without a doubt, the crowning jewel of Steven Yeun’s career so far, as well as the project that landed him his first Golden Globe award.
