Asian Men Are Hot

Updated on March 1, 2012

Jeremy Lin Is Not The Only Good-Looking Guy of Asian Descent

I've been checking out cute Asian guys for quite some time now. Actually, my thing is checking out good-looking guys - period. The view is great and quite enjoyable.

Jeremy Lin's current popularity has raised some issues about stereotypes and Asian men - they're short, nerdy, unsexy, and unattractive. Where did these stereotypes come from? After all, considering the number of Asian peoples in the world, *somebody* must be finding Asian men attractive, 51% of over 6 billion people can't be wrong. For anyone who's been living under a rock for the past month, Jeremy Lin is the hot, new basketball player for the New York Knicks. He's tall, good-looking, articulate, funny, good-humored, and well-educated (Harvard). He's also a darn good basketball player. Unfortunately, Lin's current success has brought out the usual stupid remarks steeped in stereotypes about Asians and Asian men. I won't repeat any of them here because they're not worth repeating.

Recently, I've taken to drooling over actor Tim Kang on the television show, ey're"The Mentalist". Good-looking, employed, and a Harvard graduate. Who could pass that up? But why doesn't he ever smile?

Check out actor Russell Wong. This guy is 6'0" tall and good-looking as all get out. Check him out in the movie, "The Joy Luck Club". Yeah, he plays an SOB, but he plays a gorgeous SOB. He can come over to my place and mistreat me any time he wants. Uh, and ladies, watch what he does to a slice a watermelon. Oh boy!

Jackie Chan is as cute as a button and who can argue that he doesn't have the right moves?

Byung-hun Lee's (aka Brian) upcoming movie is "GI Joe: Retaliation". This 5' 10" handsome cutie also appeared in 2009's "GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra".

Donnie Yen plays tough guys in mostly Asian films. And he is a bad-___, having started learning martial arts at the tender age of four.

Ken Watabee is 6' 3/4" (okay Ken what's with the listing of an extra 3/4 inch on your IMDB page? Men. Always have to add that extra inch!) of hunka-hunka man.

I was introduced to the beautiful Bin Wong when he played the handsome but simple-minded son of one tough mother in the Korean Film, "Mother" (aka "Madeo"). Check it out. Besides the eye candy of Wong, it's a great film.

Rain (nee Jeong Ji-Hoon) is a dancer with the nickname "Puppy" and with those dreamy, innocent puppy eyes I can see why. Hey girls, he collects shoes for a hobby. A cute guy with a taste for shoes. What girl can resist a date where shoe shopping plays a part?

John Cho plays slacker, Harold, in the "Harold & Kumar" movies, but he's also played a sensitive guy in the sleeper hit "American Beauty. Beauty *and* a sense of humor.

Takeshi Kaneshiro is half Chinese, half Japanese. He has smoldering eyes and plays smoldering characters.

Hiroyuki Sanada does Shakespeare and movies. Dad died when he was eleven. I bet he needs some tender loving care.

These are just a few excellent example of good-looking accomplished Asian men. They are at least 49% of the six billion plus Asians around the world - you do the math.

      Hello, Paulie,

      This is a real cool and hip hub.

      One of the reasons why I find this article to be very interesting is I am a native of Southern California, which probably has the largest concentration of Americans of Asian descent in the U.S.

      And not only are Asian men hot, Asian women are hot.
