Born in Seoul, South Korea, Chris was adopted as an infant by a loving family in Omaha and has lived his entire life in the United States. He grew up on a small acreage in Missouri Valley, Iowa, and over time became passionate about acting. This led him to become heavily involved with theatre in high school. In 2011, he graduated from the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in theatre arts. He went on to do some local plays and TV shows in Omaha, shortly before moving to Los Angeles to further pursue his acting career. He recently returned to Omaha after living in L.A. for the past three years.
Omaha is a city that Chris holds very dear to his heart, and is an avid supporter (and sometimes employee) of local businesses throughout the area. He currently spends his Saturdays as a bar back at Beercade in Benson, one of his favorite venues. In high school, Chris was actually a PJ Morgan Real Estate employee, where he worked as an interior/exterior painter for properties within the firm. Now, he is back with the company working as sales support for the agent team and a liaison to the Trusted Vendor Program.
Aside from acting, Chris enjoys spending his time with more atypical activities such as comic book collecting, video games, cosplaying and model building. He also spends a lot of time with his family, whom he’s very close to. You can typically find Chris out with friends in the Benson neighborhood.
