Fast and Furious 9, or F9 as it was marketed, has been released for a number of months now, grossing $716 million worldwide. It received mostly positive reviews for the incredible stunts, but fans were glad to see Sung Kang settle back into his role of Han after his apparent death in Fast and Furious 6.
In the recent Sung’s Garage podcast, I asked Sung how life had changed after Fast 9 was released:
“It’s the same, Alex, it’s just the job you, know I mean?
“I still have to go wake up and brush my teeth and do my laundry.
“I have to take out the garbage and stuff you know so I go to the grocery store…”
He continues to admit that maintaining a normal life “keeps him grounded”.
“I think the only thing that’s changed is that you know the movie’s finally out and all that wondering and all the questions have been answered.
“I think the the air’s been let out of the room if you will, right? So that’s kind of it.
“I think the whole release of Fast took such a long time it wasn’t just like you know quick, quick fast and furious, if you will, you know, press tour… it was so slow because it took forever for the movie to come out we didn’t even know if we were going to make it actually.
“And then right after we came out, things got shut down again and then it got open again so this delta variant is messing things up. But you know that’s I think, that’s the only thing that’s changed -that the movie’s over. that’s it. Other than that everything’s the same.”
