Andrew Phung is known for his role as the hilarious, likeable, and loyal Kimchee on the show, Kim’s Convenience. We bond over wrestling and food.  We explore the therapeutic value of improv, which led him to the Loose Moose Theatre Company to share his stories and voice, ultimately leading to a change in his career path (from Law to Acting).  Andrew emphasizes boundaries, positivity, family, and story-telling through self expression as keys to mental health. We end with a game of word association with him answering as Andrew and then as his character, Kimchee!
