Joana Pak is the wife of the Korean-American actor and voice actor Steven Yeun. In her own right she is a photographer, with her own freelance photography company “Jo Pakka”. To expand her knowledge, she’s done a few internships in graphic design, mostly landscapes and prints.

Age, Childhood

Joana Pak was born on the 1st October 1986, which means she is 33 years old now. She was born in Arkansas, USA, but has an Asian-American background.


Her parents migrated to the US shortly after they were married; and she has a sister named Kayle. Joana attended Columbia College from which she got a degree in Arts – these years had a lot of influence on her becoming a photographer.

Career, Professional life

After she graduated, she started with graphic design classes and editorial internships, through which she gained significant experience.

When she specialized in prints, she moved to LA to pursue her true passion-photography. So, you can say she is one of the lucky few who are able to use what started as a hobby, and which became a career. She now has a freelance photography company called ‘Jo Pakka’ in California. Since she became a mom, she’s put her career on hold for a while, but she nevertheless continues to take captivating photos of her family. Her net worth is estimated at close to $1 million, which probably goes well with her husband’s success, particularly in “The Walking Dead” series.

Personal life, Relationship with Steven Yeun, Wedding

Joana and Steven Yeun began dating in 2009 when Joana was still in college. Soon afterwards, Steven moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career, so they continued to have a long-distance relationship, which worked very well. The proof is that they became engaged in 2015, and married in 2016 in Paramour Estate in California, in an apparently perfect mix of Korean and American tradition. It was planned by Nancy Park, who is an event planner for So Happi together, with more than 200 guests – the couple wore traditional Korean clothes for the ceremony.

The food and music were again a fusion of the best flavors from both American and Korean cuisine. During the wedding, they both presented their mothers with bouquets, which was supposed to represent a message of greater love. They had butterfly plates for their wedding, which was pretty symbolic since the first word she ever learned in English was “butterfly.” Their family has been increased by a son, named Jude Malcolm Yeun, on 17 March 2017.
