More than just the familiar face from Netflix's international hit Bling, Empire and now the #1 streamed show, The Traitors on Peacock, Kevin Kreider has a remarkable story to share. Born in Seoul, South Korea and adopted at the age of three to a German/Irish family in Philadelphia, he grew up with a loving family. But he soon found out that the outside world was not as caring. By the time he was in kindergarten, Kevin was bullied, beaten up and made fun of for being Asian. That continued through the years and he began to believe the hateful things others were telling him: Asian men were not as attractive. They were effeminate, skinny and weak.
