    • “I am thinking about John Cho’s head of hair for the rest of the day so I trust you’ll respect my privacy in this very emotional time,” one user wrote
    • One person commented that she was originally against a live-action remake but “John Cho’s new hair has won me and makes it all worth it.” Another wrote that “John Cho as Spike Spiegel might make me flatline.”
