Harold Lee (portrayed by John Cho) is a Korean-American who lives in New Jersey with his best friend Kumar Patel.
Harold, when he was a kid, was emo. Now, he is an uptight, hard-working stoner who is the yin to Kumar's yang. Harold might be soft at times, but he has a dark side, that Kumar has to bring out of him during situations. Harold had a crush on a Mexican girl, Maria, whom he later married.
