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!

Apparently he is very choosy of projects. The dramas and film he made though are thoroughly enjoyable entertainment and he just so visually beautiful.

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.

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.

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! 🙂
