“I’m extremely passionate about putting more Asian faces on screen in North America.”

Dina’s Thoughts

Passionate, relentless and focused- these are the three words that first come to mind when thinking of Andrew Chung, creator, writer and producer of a breakout series on Youtube called “Millions The Series.” He’s overcome nearly insurmountable obstacles and weathered through 9 long years to bring his first major series to fruition, despite financial setbacks, production setbacks and despite being based in a region where homegrown entertainment is at a virtual standstill.

Of Chinese descent, Chung’s family moved from China to India, and finally to Canada in search of a better life. As a teenager, Chung battled with self-proclaimed “extremely low self-esteem” in large part due to a severe lack of Asian male role models in the public eye. Fast forward to over 15 years later, he’s now got major commercials under his belt, several short films and of course, Millions The Series, the latter which is gaining popularity with Asian Americans for its anti-clichéd characters and unique storyline. Chung is quickly becoming the role model for younger generations of Asian Americans, the likes of which he missed in his own childhood.
