Kevin Kwan published his comedic novel Crazy Rich Asians on June 11, 2013. One of the first producers to contact Kwan was Wendi Deng Murdoch, who had read an advance copy of the novel provided by Graydon Carter.[31][32] Another of the producers who was initially interested in the project proposed whitewashing the role of heroine Rachel Chu by casting a Caucasian actress,[33] prompting Kwan to option the rights to the film for just $1 in exchange for a continuing role for creative and development decisions.[31][34] In August 2013, producer Nina Jacobson acquired rights to adapt the novel into a film. Jacobson and her partner Brad Simpson intended to produce under their production banner Color Force, with Bryan Unkeless developing the project. Their initial plan was to produce the film adaptation outside the studio system and to structure financing for development and production from Asia and other territories outside the United States.[35][36] The freedom created by eschewing the typical funding structure would enable an all-Asian cast. Jacobson stated "Getting something in development and even getting some upfront money is an easy way to not ever see your movie get made."[31]

Dates are dates, and if those are immovable, I understand. But I would put all of my heart, hope, humor, and courage into the role. What this could do means so much to me. It's why I advocate so much for young Asian-American girls so they might not spend their life feeling small or being commanded to feel grateful to even be at the table.

In South Korea, the film failed at the box office, finishing sixth on its opening weekend and by its second week the film fell to fourteenth place.[118] In total, the film only made a little over $1.1 million there.[4]

Korean American actress Jamie Chung, who had auditioned for a role but was turned down allegedly for not being "ethnically Chinese", responded to Golding's casting with "That is some bullshit. Where do you draw the line to be ethnically conscious?"[149] Chung's remarks were met with both praise and criticism on social media, with some accusing her of being biased against Eurasians and noting that she had previously played ethnic Chinese characters in other works.[150][151] Chung clarified her comments on social media, denying that she was bigoted against multiracial Asians as she would "one day have [her] own hapa babies", prompting further backlash.[150] Chung subsequently apologized to Golding for her comments, which he accepted.[152] She later expressed her support for Crazy Rich Asians, Golding and his castmates, stating that because of them "there will be other projects [...] that will be full Asian casts."[153]

Photographer Eric Lee has long examined his own identity as an Asian American, especially one from a diverse city like New York. For him, the confusion began when he was a teenager (as if that time wasn't already complex). Reflecting on Lee's own experiences, he became curious of how teenagers today were navigating and comprehending a pandemic that has blamed, killed, and ridiculed their communities.

To gain an understanding, Lee spoke with and photographed 14 Asian American teenagers throughout New York City. For some, the pandemic prompted them to explore their identities in ways they hadn't before. For others, it caused them to examine issues and experiences that were resurfacing.

Vicki Z., 17, was walking home with her friends in the Lower East Side when a man came up to her and said, "Corona-free NYC!" She was shocked that someone would do something like that and worried the man would continue harassing. As a young, Asian American woman, Vicki now wears a cap and headphones as a protective disguise whenever she walks alone. The hat covers her face so she doesn't have to make eye contact with people on the street and the headphones block out the comments.

As a young woman, Naomi R., 16, was always afraid to walk home late at night or take the subway alone. But as hate crimes against Asians began to rise, her fears worsened. Then the shooting in Atlanta happened.

Reflecting on 2020, Zach Whitfield, 18, remembers the pain of the Black Lives Matter protests. As a mixed-race, half-African-American, and half Korean teenager, identity is a continued struggle for him. He is still recovering from the traumas and conversations of last year and again feels neglected by the world.

Alena P., 15, faces challenges most high school juniors encounter: the beginning of college applications. However, Alena is almost two years younger than most juniors, something she is struggling with as she strives to fit into her school community. She's struggled with opening up to her friends, especially about being biracial.

American Panda follows seventeen year old Taiwanese-American, Mei. Mei is a germaphobe, forced into a premed program by her very traditional parents. She is afraid to reveal that she instead would rather own a dance studio. Especially after her brother Xing is disowned for choosing a spouse his parents disapprove of.

Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soul mate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pandit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her eighteenth birthday, and Raj meets all the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked when she returns from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.

Sixteen-year-old Amal makes the decision to start wearing the hijab full-time and everyone has a reaction. Her parents, her teachers, her friends, people on the street. But she stands by her decision to embrace her faith and all that it is, even if it does make her a little different from everyone else.

Pinky Kumar wears the social justice warrior badge with pride. From raccoon hospitals to persecuted rock stars, no cause is too esoteric for her to champion. But a teeny tiny part of her also really enjoys making her conservative, buttoned-up corporate lawyer parents cringe.

The Leavers is a complex, original, and welcome addition to the body of literature about the immigrant experience. In her debut novel, Lisa Ko addresses undocumented immigration, single motherhood, transracial adoption, addiction, identity, and forgiveness through the lives of an estranged mother and son forced apart by circumstances beyond their control. Writing with clarity, precision, and elegance, Ko deftly captures the voices of an alienated young man who can see colors when he hears music, as well as that of a fiercely independent woman from China determined to be more than what both Chinese and American society prescribe for her. Narrated from dual points of view, Ko unsparingly portrays the difficult and sometimes unflattering decisions her characters make.

Picture Bride: Stories is an eloquent testament to the courage of issei women of Hawaii. With extraordinary interviewing skills, Barbara Kawakami chronicles the reminiscences of sixteen picture brides, giving voice to their personal tragedies, individual triumphs and resilient collective spirits.

Dev Patel has come a long way since his acting debut as the awkward burnout on Skins. His breakout role was playing Jamal Malik in Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire at just 19 years old, becoming one of the youngest Best Actor nominees at the BAFTAs. Patel has gone on to carve out an ever-more impressive career, playing lead roles and winning awards in hits like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011), Hotel Mumbai (2018), and The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019).

Daniel Dae Kim is an OG Asian American in Hollywood, and the gorgeous actor has starred in long-running TV roles on Lost and Hawaii Five-O. Born in Busan, South Korea, and raised on the East Coast, Kim (and his razor-sharp cheekbones) helped set the groundwork for younger Asian American actors in Hollywood by showing audiences the sexy side of Asian masculinity. His film credits include voicing Benja in Raya and the Last Dragon and Hellboy. What a zaddy.

Born in Chicago to physician parents and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Ramamurthy has the square jaw, brilliant smile, and calm demeanor of a man born for the stage. Ramamurthy is best known for his roles as Mohinder Suresh in NBC's cult sci-fi drama Heroes, and Jai Wilcox in the spy series Covert Affairs. More recently, Ramamurthy (mostly his very reassuring voice) pops up as Devi's deceased father in Mindy Kaling's Netflix teen dramedy Never Have I Ever.

Japanese American actor and dreamy hunk Darren Barnet became every teen girl's dream as the unattainably cool, quietly sweet, and objectifiably (yes, he's objectified AF in the show...remember the gratuitous fixing-table scene??) beautiful Paxton Hall-Yoshida in Mindy Kaling's Never Have I Ever. Who hasn't crushed on a jock from afar, especially when they look like this? 041b061a72
