"These were a string of thoughts that came from a deep and personal perspective that is incredibly nuanced," Liu said in a statement to Vanity Fair, clarifying his Facebook statement last week slamming the behind-the-scenes situation of the show and the direction of his character. Liu credited Kim's Convenience for being "integral in allowing me to find my voice and shape the perspective and platform that I now have," adding: "I am incredibly appreciative of the work that the team put out for the past five seasons. It’s a period of my life that helped shape me in many ways. The entirety of the experience helped me express the passion that I, prior to this project, could not properly articulate: pride. Pride in the individual, pride in one’s culture and heritage, and pride in one’s community. I am proud of everything accomplished during our run and cannot wait to see how the legacy of the show and others like it impact future generations in finding their voice and telling their own stories."
