Adding, “That was always a fun thing for kids to do. There are so many traditions. I hope to continue the tradition to decorate the whole house with red lanterns and locks turned upside down for good luck.”

He joked that “When my mom makes dumplings, she is an expert — I’m just trying to keep food inside the dough. I’m hoping to pass it on so my wife and I can be expert-level dumpling makers and be able to pass that down to our kids.”

Harry Shum Jr. currently stars as Magnus Bane in the television series Shadowhunters on Netflix and will star in the sequel of Crazy Rich Asians.
