Forget about Hollywood. The best looking men in the celebrity world can be found in Asia. I know what I am talking about as I have watching Korean dramas, Japanese dramas, Chinese dramas, Taiwanese dramas, Filipino dramas, Thai dramas and other south Asian dramas non-stop from 8 am to sometimes until 2am almost everyday for the last seven months. Hehehe
I can’t believe how many gorgeous men from Asia who can easily eclipse any Hollywood hunks in appearance and aura.
To be honest, in watching dramas the first thing you thing about is who the male lead was. The actors can easily be prettier than the female lead. Probably that is the reason why they are paid more than the actresses. Don’t get me wrong, they all work hard for their money. Most of them are versatile; they can sing, they can dance and of course good actors.
The list of films and dramas I have attached is not the complete body of works by the respective actors below. The list only includes those I have personally watched!
Best Looking South East Asian Actors
Here are a few of my choices: (a work in progress)
Jo In Sung (aka Zo In Sung) is a Korean actor. He is so beautiful that even celebrities are blown away and left quivering in delight when he is around.
Apparently he is very choosy of projects. The dramas and film he made though are thoroughly enjoyable entertainment and he just so visually beautiful.
See for yourselves:
A Frozen Flower is a beautiful film. My first historical film that I saw, where the men are dressed in intricately embroidered long colourful hanboks and freshly shampooed long hair. 🙂 I did not really read much about the film before I watched it, I just wanted to see more of Jo In Sung film.
Films & Dramas starring Jo In Sung:

A Frozen Flower
Jang Hyuk is a Korean actor, who has the most captivating sexy laugh. His rather guttural throaty way of talking would send chills through your spine :). He looks wickedly handsome as well. A true romantic hero. He has the sexiest laugh that run through your spine. hahaha
Fated to Love (my favourite); I love this drama so much. His chemistry with Jang Na Ra is just amazing.
The Flu (http://dramacool.io/drama-detail/the-flu), I love this film.
Tomoya Nagase is a Japanese actor. He is adorable as a rather illiterate son of Yakuza boss in My Boss, My Hero.
Recently he made a Japanese tv drama called Fragile, as an irascible but brilliant pathologist. Every sneer, every frown and then every thoughtful look are just so sexy! He certainly made pathology alluring and exciting. WOW
Godfrey Gao is Taiwanese born but grew up in Canada. He was the first Asian male model to work for Louis Vuitton.
He has returned to Taiwan and has been active in showbiz.
Film & Drama: (I have seen)
The Queen of SOP, love him in this drama though he was only the second male lead.
So Ji Sub
So Ji Sub is a Korean actor and a singer as well. He made looking thoughtful so sexy. The last drama I saw him on was Oh My Venus. It was not a new one but I have been putting if off for sometime because I thought it was all about a fat girl. I finally watched the drama in its entirety this week and I thought I should have watched it sooner. It was so good and So Ji Sub and his abs are a feast to the eyes!
Another drama that he was so yummy is called Master’s Sun. I also adored him in a film called Rough Cut.

Jung Woo Sung is a South Korean actor who started as a model.
- Padam padam
- The King – Though the film was really a Jo In Sung film, Jung Woo Sung was really what got me excited. It actually pained me to say that as I am Jo In Sung no 1 fan ;), there is something magnetic about Jung Woo Sung.
- The Good, The Bad and The Weird, (I love this film so much; it is a South Korean western a la Sergio Leone. Jung Woo Sung was a stand out. Riding a horse in tight jeans was dreamy! 🙂
- Remember You, love this movie. He met an accident and he was in a coma for 10 months, when he came too, he can’t remember the last 10 years of his life.
Joo Jin Mo
Joo Jin Mo
Joo Jin Mo is a South Korean actor. In my opinion, he is one of the sexiest actor there is. There is something serious that way he look, something melancholic, which is sexy.
Films & Movies:
- A Frozen Flower (seriously sexy film) 🙂
- 200 Pounds Beauty, a seriously obese woman who had a crush on him, turned into a sexy woman overnight!
- Woman with a Suitcase – love this Kdrama, there were plenty of thrill. He had such lovely chemistry with the leading actress, Choi Ji-Woo
Huang Xiao Ming
Robin Padilla is a Filipino actor, who is known as the bad boy of Philippine movies, having played his fair share of gang theme films. He also served a couple of years in a Philippine prison for illegal possession of fire arms. Despite his jail term, he continued to be popular and iconic.
Robin has got that sex appeal in spades, which is probably due to the way he looked into the movie screen; the curling of his lips and the slight tightening of his eyebrows and those staring eyes as if he can see through you plus his slight guttural voice. Sexy! 🙂
Kang Ha Neul
Kang Ha Neul is a young Korean actor, who is one to watch. He was so good in all the role he has played so far. Though he played the young self of the main actor in Angel Eyes, he made the role so relevant that you remember him throughout the drama.
Aside from being good looking, good actor, he is also a good singer. Fall in love with him with his rendition of I Choose to Love You.
Joo Woo is a South Korean actor. He is very watchable not only for his good looks but for his acting as well.
