Although the South Korea native has acted in many notable movies, including “The Man With the Golden Gun” and “Missing in Action 2: The Beginning”, his most beloved role is arguably Fa Zhou, Mulan’s father in the Disney animated classic “Mulan”.
“He awakened within me a life-changing cultural and community awareness; and while we continually performed and interacted with Korean American partner organizations over the next five years or so, Mr. Oh constantly coached and mentored me,”wrote Tim Lounibos in a tribute.
Netizens were devastated by the news.
I am saddened by the passing of Soon-Tek Oh, the voice of Fa Zhou. It was a privilege to work with him. “You bring honor to us all”. pic.twitter.com/zCkpylZQx8
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
