With its unrivaled catalog of films and TV series, popular streaming platform, Netflix constantly thrills fans with hours of unending entertainment. Additionally, the collection is regularly updated to provide viewers with more movies to chill with during their leisure time.
As Xmas fast approaches, the streaming network is steadily debuting new flicks in line with the holiday season. One such movie is the Netflix original film “Love Hard,” starring Asian-American actor and standup comedian Jimmy O. Yang.
In the film, Yang came along with his comical character making fans share a few laughs even though the film was romance-centered. Seeing him appear in the mushy flick piqued the curiosity of fans about his relationship status – whether he is single, dating, or married.
Here are more details to know about his love life.
Is Yang Involved With Anyone?
Given the fame Yang has garnered over the years, it might be a thing of a surprise if he had no romantic link to anyone. It is not unusual for stardom to come with loads of potential female relationships, and many stars are known to utilize the opportunity.
Yang recently disclosed to PopSugar that he had someone in his life. Although he did not give many details about his boo, he discussed how he enjoyed hanging with her, and they embarked on a trip to meet her parents.
“I’m not that much of a romantic, I guess. I just went to Cleveland with my girlfriend for her brother’s wedding. That was fun hanging out with her, spending time with her parents. I like to think I made a lot of sacrifices that weekend,” he shared.
“We had to fly Spirit Airlines because that was the only direct flight into Cleveland at the time. So that was a massive sacrifice, having to sit on Spirit Airlines seats you can’t recline to go hang out in my girlfriend’s hometown.”
Fans are curious to get more details about the lucky lady who won his heart. Hopefully, more tidbits might come up in the nearest future.
Yang’s Love Advice To Relationship Seekers
Still, on the interview, Yang dropped what seemed like love advice for would-be lovers. He stated that for a first date, it was best to avoid much razzmatazz. A better preference would be a warm and cozy dinner where the couple could discuss themselves.
He also encouraged singles to eschew lies and be honest in their interpersonal relationships. Additionally, he noted that having confidence in oneself was necessary, irrespective of any shortcomings.

For Yang, being insecure about one’s looks and personality does not decrease the chance of getting into a relationship. He fixated on honesty as the key factor to finding the right person to start a romantic affair.
The actor also confided that after “Love Hard,” he hopes to earn more mainstream success from his roles. He has done well in the comedy world and wishes to conquer Hollywood as well.
More From The Interview
Yang also answered questions about his favorite form of self-care, his preferred pet, and his biggest pet peeves and turn-on. For his self-care, the comedian loves meditating and doing massages with a Theragun or a Kraftgun. He also enjoys working out frequently with Oculus.
The actor also divulged that he favors having a big dog as a pet -particularly pugs. He describes them as cartoon characters with plenty of personalities. Although he does not hate cats, he is more excited about being around dogs.
He responded to the biggest turn-off question saying he disliked tardiness regardless of it being a date or a business thing. His biggest turn-on comes when he meets someone, who is well-traveled, loves food, and is cultured.
His reasoning stemmed from having an immigrant background, which inspired him to try out new things.
