After bearing his abs in “Glee”, viewers have dubbed Harry Shum Jr. the Situ-Asian – a play on “Jersey Shore’s” infamous ab-man, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
Viewers haven’t stopped blogging about Shum’s abs since it debuted in the first episode of season two. In a recent interview with Give Me My Remote, an online destination for TV news, Shum said he was surprised at the focus on his physique.
“Even when I was shooting that I didn’t expect the response that I got. It comes all in little trends I guess. First it was the ‘Other Asian’ that came in and got forgotten and then ‘No Bones’ kind of came in and now I guess that. “There has to be a better nickname for him now besides “that.” “Yeah, someone — I guess the whole Internet is calling me ‘The Situ-Asian,'” admits Shum.
Many Gleeks have expressed their desire to see more of Mike Chang’s abs. We agree!
