Joz’s Picks for (Famous) Sexiest Asian Males

I was asked to give two picks at 8asians.com for the “Top 15 Sexiest Asian Males, As Rated By the Women of 8A” list. I assumed that I was supposed to choose famous people, as opposed to people I just knew in real life.

So here are my picks from the list:

Russell Wong

Russell Wong. He’s not full-Asian, but I’m going to go with old skool: Russell Wong in his heyday. Russell’s looking a little older and Clooney-esque lately, but I love Clooney too, so it’s no surprise he tops my list.

Takeshi Kaneshiro

Takeshi Kaneshiro. And for a nice Japanese-Taiwanese hybrid, I vote for Takeshi Kaneshiro. I especially liked him with long hair and shooting arrows in House of Flying Daggers… kind of an Asian Legolas, but hotter than Orlando Bloom…

Joz’s Honorable Mentions: I had a hard time narrowing down to two. Honorable mentions votes go to Daniel Henney, Yul Kwon, Rick Yune, Donnie Yen, Randall (Randy) Park, and Wong Lee Hom. Not in that order. Also, in the interest of full disclosure, Randy and I know each other from our UCLA days, so it’s kind of weird since I know him in real life. But I’ve always had a mini-crush on Randy, more so because he is so freakin’ talented and charismatic. Of course, he’s pretty easy on the eyes, too.

See the whole list here.

  • ok, joz, why did you choose the guys who’ve been rumored to be gay? are you trying to out them?!

    i remember meeting russell wong back in 96 at a GAPSN function and i kinda lost my crush on him after that–even back then you could start seeing the wrinkles…it wouldn’t be bad for me now, but when i was 21/22 and didn’t know any better…pass!

    and you DO remember my comment about takeshi earlier in your blog, right?


  • LoL. You *WERE* supposed to just pick famous celebrities for the list, but other writers decided to re-interpret between the lines. And you’re absolutely right– I never once mentioned specifically it had to be famous people. hehehe.

    Sigh. Yes, I should have been more specific.

    Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I really enjoyed the movie “House of Flying Daggers”. I was impressed by Takeshi Kaneshiro, he is a very talented and unique person and so are his co acters. I like the fact that these actors are so talented in so many ways, it takes alot of hard work and dedication to do what they do. They have the gift of being able to entertain all of their fans – to take us into the story along with them, to be come part of the scene – not just in their home land but through out the world. Their talents can enable all of us to see and feel what their characters are going thru and with the producers and directors visions we all can see the whole story unfold be fore our eyes. There are no words to describe the work that actors, directors, producers and all their staff do to bring out stories and visions of their hard work. And no words can ever be found to explain the history and culture past or present) they teach all of us through the movies and books we read. I would like to see how a picture comes to life, it would be like giving birth to a wonderful being that can be enjoyed forever, whereever, whenever and by whom ever at any time. All I can say for now is thank you, for giving us a view of your culture and of its wonderful people.
