ah yes typical Western media, an actor who is well known and respected in their country isn't worth anything unless the Western media says so once they're popular in America.

"Breakout" internationally, but he's already a seasoned actor in his home country 😂 If Ben Kingsley was in a hit Korean show, would he be classified as a "breakout" actor within Korea, despite being a seasoned English actor? LOL
