Notes and Trivia[]

  • In 21 Jump Street (episode), Ioki introduces himself by his full name, Harry Truman Ioki. Penhall adds that it wouldn't be hard to guess which year Ioki's parents migrated to the United States, based on what they named him. Ioki furthers the conversation by stating his parents, upon migrating, named him after the person that bombed his people. In Christmas in Saigon, Ioki reveals he is actually Vietnamese, not Japanese, and his parents died before boarding the boat to the United States. He took the name and Social Security Number of a U.S. citizen that died in infancy both to hide his heritage (given the stigma against Vietnamese people coming out of the Vietnam War) and to become an immediate U.S. citizen.
