We had the good fortune of connecting with Michael Sun Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michael Sun, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
It satisfies my soul, its fun, and the experiences are amazing.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As an actor, many times you are not even given the chance to fail but you gotta keep going. Perseverance and failure have been of upmost importance to my professional endeavors.
It is never easy in the entertainment field so every win is s step up.
The decision to keep going allows you find the exciting experiences. Deciding, doing, taking physical action, and simply showing up have been key.
Discomfort, sacrifice, and the unknown are all a part of the life game so you might as well have fun playing it. And not caring what people think about you is freedom.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to the beach and mountains and everything in between. Los Angeles has access to Snow, Sea, Desert, and City. In the city we will go to a few open markets and then eat at one of the many ethnic restaurants and then hit a rooftop bar or speakeasy.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Organizations like East West Players (EWP), The Coaltition for Asian Pacifics in Entertainment (CAPE), The Kumu Kahua Theater in Hawaii, and The University of Hawaii at Manoa have all been an influence and vital to my experience.
