Alliteration isn't the only thing going for 5 Fast 5 Furious—
apparently the Asian guy in it is called Han Seoul Oh
, says FilmDrunk
. It seems like it's not a joke
: Bravo, Fast and the Furious for being really
subtle and naming a Korean race car driver Han in earlier movies, and then changing it to an oh-so-clever Star Wars
reference much, much later!
Actor Sung Kang is officially credited as “Han” in Fast Five and “Han Lue” in Fast and Furious (4 Fast 4 Furious), but from what I hear, his name shows up on a screen as “Han Seoul-Oh” multiple times during Fast Five, though it's never spoken, referenced, or explained.
So are Princess Ria and Ruke Skywalker in the movie too?
