Jo first appeared on the October 30 episode titled “Kamsahamnida” where he confronted Randall (Sterling K. Brown) for using the Korean community in his neighborhood as a political scheme to get votes for his campaign. After hashing it out, the two ended up developing a rapport and at the end of the episode, Jae-Won became his campaign manager. No further details were given about the future of his character, but he will appear in future episodes during the third season of the Emmy-winning NBC drama.
The Korean term “kamsahamnida” translates to “thank you” and is the only Korean word Randall knows. The episode ended up being a turning point for Brown’s character and incorporated the Asian American actor into the diverse narrative of This Is Us.
