For her role on Kim’s Convenience, Yoon won an ACTRA Award and received a Canadian Screen Award nomination in 2017. Yoon reprised her role for a second season of the series, which premiered in September 26, 2017.

Yoon has one child; in a 2017 interview with NOW Magazine, she described herself as a “mom who acts.”


Since 2016, Yoon has portrayed Kim Yong-mi (“Umma”), the matriarch of the Kim family, in the CBC sitcom Kim’s Convenience. She also portrayed the same role in the 2011 play, which she originated and performed over 240 times in six cities. For her role in the television series, she has received considerable attention and has publicly discussed the importance of diversity in mainstream media, specifically for Asian Canadians and immigrants. In an interview with the CBC, Yoon said:


Throughout the 2010s, Yoon has played a wide array of characters in several television programs, most notably Imena Khumalo in the medical drama series Remedy (2014–2015), Connie in the animated series Peg+Cat (2013–2016), Captain Theresa Yao in the science fiction series The Expanse (2015), and Janis Beckwith in the hit BBC-Space series Orphan Black.


In 2007, Yoon received a Gemini Award nomination for her work in the CBC mini-series Dragon Boys. In 2009, she portrayed Dr. Montague in the hit romantic comedy film The Time Traveller’s Wife, based on the novel of the same name.


Yoon’s acting career began to flourish in the early 2000s, with small roles in several television series, including La Femme Nikita (1996–2001), Witchblade (TNT, 2000–2002) and Street Time (Showtime, 2001–2003). In 2006, Yoon achieved wider recognition after playing flight attendant Betty Ong in the controversial mini-series The Path to 9/11. Also in 2006, Yoon had a recurring role as June Kim in the legal drama series This Is Wonderland.


Yoon started her career in theatre as an actress in the early 1980s, but soon quit in frustration after she struggled to attract work and went on to complete her degree at the University of Toronto (BA Innis 1989). A decade later, in 1995, she returned to acting and started her own group called Loud Mouth Asian Babes, through which she has written and produced plays that focus on the Korean diaspora, mostly in Canada.
