Daniel Dae Kim & Michelle Buteau on ‘Always Be My Maybe’ and How to Approach Your Crush

     June 8, 2019

With the new movie Always Be My Maybe now streaming on Netflix, I recently sat down with Daniel Dae Kim and Michelle Buteau to talk about their new rom-com. If you haven’t seen the trailer, the movie follows Sasha (Ali Wong) and Marcus (Randall Park), childhood friends who had a falling out and haven’t spoken to each other in 15 years. When Sasha returns to San Francisco to open a new restaurant, the two reconnect and realize there may be something more to their relationship. Daniel Dae Kim plays a rich entrepreneur who is one of Ali’s love interests and Michelle Buteau plays her best friend.

The two also talked about some of their favorite behind-the-scenes moments, and since drinking games are part of a pivotal scene in Always Be My Maybe, we also played a few rounds Would You Rather!

Here’s the official synopsis for Always Be My Maybe: 

Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal — a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.
