Sam Hammington is a popular comedian, television and radio personality, and actor working in South Korea. Born on July 31, 1977, in New Zealand, Sam lived in Melbourne, Australia, when he decided to learn Korean in business school to beef up his resume. He did an exchange program at Korea University in 2001 and attended a live comedy show that changed his life forever. Sam was plucked out of the audience to take part in a skit, and his fluent Korean wowed everyone, including some scriptwriters and directors in the audience. He has since made many memorable cameo appearances on films and television dramas, including “Let’s Eat” (2014) and “Who Are You: School 2015” (2015). He also hosted the TV show “Witch Hunt” in 2013. But it’s Sam’s Korean reality show appearances that have made him a bona fide star. He was a popular cast member of “Real Men” (2013-2015) and guest on “Happy Together” (2014) and “2 Days & 1 Night” (2015). He also served as MC of “True Justice” (2014). Sam also appears in the Viki original series “Dramaworld” (2016), which was filmed in both Los Angeles and Seoul. Sam married longtime girlfriend Jung Yu Mi in 2013 in a wedding that was televised nationally in Korea.
