When To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before dropped on Netflix back in 2018, it turned its lead actors into overnight stars, as well as the author who wrote the book the film is based on. Jenny Han had success in the YA space with her other series, but it was To All the Boys that truly elevated her career—not to mention discussion around inclusive storytelling, which for creators can sometimes be a double-edged sword. In this episode, Han explains the weight of representation, why having structure can kill her creative process, and the benefits of letting your mind wander (productively, of course).
