left college to pursue acting. He literally ran away from home for five years to train and study before moving to Los Angeles. Once in Los Angeles, Choi hit the ground running. He was cast in an independent film during his first week and finished the year with appearances in six television series, including "The West Wing" and "Roswell."

Over the next few years, Choi quickly gained recognition with memorable guest turns on hit sitcoms "The King of Queens," "Reba" and "According to Jim" and recurring roles in critically successful dramas such as "House" and "24." Constant television work established Choi as a solid and dependable character actor. In 2008, Choi landed a lead role in the ABC Family series "Samurai Girl" opposite Jamie Chung, as well as recurring arcs in 2009 in Starz' "Crash" and FOX's "Glee," and in 2010 with TNT's "Hawthorne" and FX's "Sons of Anarchy."

In 2004, a childhood dream was fulfilled as Choi was cast in Steven Spielberg's "The Terminal," alongside Tom Hanks, Stanley Tucci and Zoe Saldana. This sparked a surge in Choi's career as he completed almost a dozen films through 2008—working with acclaimed writer/director David Ayer in "Street Kings" and "Harsh Times," and high-profile roles in Lionsgate's "War," opposite Jason Statham, and "The Heart Specialist," opposite Zoe Saldana and Wood Harris.
