Yeun talked about the memories of his mother taking him to see "Terminator 2" in 1991 at a movie theater in Taylor.
He said it was an amazing experience, but joked that he wasn't sure if he was old enough to see a film with so much blood and explosions.
Yeun said his mom may not have realized just how violent the movie was, but she played it cool.
