He is known for his role as Kimball Cho in the TV series The Mentalist and Gordon Katsumoto in the reboot series Magnum P.I..

Early life and education

Kang was born in San Francisco, California, and is the eldest of three brothers. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master of Fine Arts from Harvard's Institute for Advanced Theater Training at the American Repertory Theater and the Moscow Art Theatre.

Kang began acting at age 26. He had been working in the finance industry at the Pacific Exchange when he passed by the American Conservatory Theater and signed up for night acting classes on a whim.

It premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in February 2016 before touring to various theatres.

In 2012, Kang launched a production company named One Shoot Films with its first film project focusing on child abduction and sexually abused children. Kang recurred as Ivan Hess on Marvel's Cloak & Dagger. He is a series regular as Detective Gordon Katsumoto on the 2018 reboot of Magnum P.I.. After four seasons led to cancellation on CBS, he is set to continue in the role following the series's pickup by NBC.
