Korean-American actor Joe Seo is best known for winning the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for his breakthrough performance in acting. Joe, just at the age of 19, has earned a considerable reputation from audiences. He appears in the recently aired American web series Cobra Kai which stars Xolo Marideuna and Mary Mouser in a pivotal role. It is a series based on The Karate Kid. In the series, he is portraying the recurring character of Kyler.

How Much Is Joe's Net Worth?

Joe Seo summoned his net worth from his professional acting career. Since starting a career in the entertainment file, he has starred in more than a two dozen movies and earned magnum fortunes. Among his films, he also has won an award for the movie Spa Night. He grabbed the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award For Breakthrough Performance at the Sundance Closing Award Ceremony, which was accepted by Ahm on his behalf.

During that time, Joe had gone to Los Angeles to meet a casting director. For his acceptance speech, he (Ahm) said that Joe gave so much of himself. It was always going to be hard portraying the duality of being gay Korean-American, but Joe gave his whole being to it. Moreover, the presenter Lena Dunham and Avy Kaufman described Joe as an actor whose intimate and quiet performance is profoundly moving. 

The most important question asked during the interview was:

The movie shows that the Korean community in LA can be pretty conservative, particularly when it comes to gay rights. The film does something I think is so important, which is to show a character that is both gay and Korean-American and struggles because of it. Did you have any reservations about taking on this role?

Answering the question, he said that it is a little more conservative in LA than in Korea. The Korean diaspora came in the 70s or the 80s, so they maintain a conventional idea about the gay community. And it is hard for them to accept change and to accept a different view. 

Talking about his role in the movie, he felt that the film brought more light to the gay community. Whether you are straight, gay, or whatever, we are all just people at the end of the day, said Joe. 

His movie received an average rating of 6.9/10, with a gross earning of $38,578. Analyzing his performance in this movie, he made the revenue higher than the rest crew members.

He has his acting credits on movies like Freedom Writers with a box office collection of $43 million worldwide, and Gridiron Gang with a box office collection of $41 million. These movies also helped him to raise his earnings substantially. Further, Joe appeared in the film The Bird Who Could Fly, released in 2017, portraying the character of Arthur Lee. 

As of now, he is portraying the character of Kyler on the newly aired series Cobra Kai. Xolo Maridueña and Mary Mouser performed the role of Miguel and Samantha LaRusso, respectively.
