American Korean drama film Minari has been gaining a lot of recognition due to its touching story. One of its stars in particular has been receiving a lot of attention on his own. 8-year-old Alan Kim, who plays David in the movie, is the new breakout star who not only stole the show but is stealing all of our hearts right now. Here are 12 of his most adorable moments.

While also basically cosplaying as Woody from Toy Story.

5. When he interviewed his on-screen Grandma, Korean film icon Yuh-Jung Youn
He’s only 8 and is already interviewing legends for Harper’s BAZAAR. Also, the respect they show each other just makes my heart warm up!
6. When he sang “Dynamite”
He revealed that BTS are his favorite K-Pop singers and sang “Dynamite” in an interview with W Korea. Legends stan legends, what can I say?
Alan Kim, who stars in Minari, sang Dynamite (and Jjiniya)! So cute 🥰

11. When he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Everything about this interview was amazing, but the fact that he showed up in a suit with his new Taekwondo belt. That in itself will forever be iconic.
12. When he just wanted to be famous
Variety‘s interviewer was trying to ask thoughtful questions on what inspired Alan Kim’s career choice. Alan basically told the guy that it wasn’t that deep.
