Sexy Oppa: Cha Seung Won

Okay, I think it’s time for me to move to Korea and start drinking their water. Why? Because everyone there must be drinking from the fountain of youth, including this man.  Cha Seung Won is one of the few Korean men that have facial hair, and I actually like it.  The first time I saw him was in the kdrama City Hall.  The show was meh, but I absolutely loved him in it.  Apparently he’s had a lot of comedic rolls (like in the Greatest Love) but I can only see him action/angsty rolls like “Athena” or “Eye for an Eye”. Also can I mention that he stars in “71: Into the Fire” with TOP? Always a plus. Besides dramas and movies, he’s been in a few music videos. Most recently he was the brooding ajussi/bounty hunter in T-ara’s  music video for “Cry, Cry”. Very sexy but very long since the video was 15 minutes.

Cha Seung Won is also a family man. He married his wife when he was 18 and they are still happily together. They have a son who is 23 and a daughter who’s 8.  I know I’d be one smiling lady, if I were his wife. His son is handsome as well and his daughter is too cute! Here is a list of some of his movies and dramas if you are interested in watching.

Secret

Murder, Take One

Athena: Goddess of War

Sexy Oppa: Lee Byung Hun

I love all my kpop idols, believe me I do. There are times, however, where I feel like a pedo nuna because most of them are at least four years younger than me. I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks this way so I thought I’d show off some of our oppas. The first person I thought of was Lee Byung Hun. This man is perfection personified and I’m not just being a fan girl when I say that. I first saw him in my favorite drama, IRIS, and I remember sitting up thinking, “Damn, who is that?!?” I cannot believe he is 41 and looks like this.

If Korean dramas aren’t your thing, he also played Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe and will be resurrecting the role in G.I. Joe 2, coming out this summer.  He’s done a ton of CFs and even released an album. As far as I could find he’s never been married and he doesn’t have any children but I’m sure he won’t be single for long unless he wants to be because damn, lol.

Here is a list of movies/tv shows he’s been in, if you’re interested in seeing more of him.

IRIS

I Saw The Devil

The Good, The Bad, and The Weird

Three Extremes

All In

GI Joe

Meet Johnny Tri Nguyen

Johnny Tri Nguyen (pronounced “nwen”) is a 37-year-old actor, stunt double and martial artist from Vietnam. Johnny comes from a entertainment industry family, and has been around the performing arts his whole life. Among the martial arts he practices is lien feng kwon (which was founded by his grandfather), wushu, tae kwon do, tai chi, aikido, and vovinam. One of his most notable movies is “The Rebel”, a 2007 period film set in 1920s Vietnam, in which he starred, co-wrote and co-directed.

Sweet! “The Rebel”‘s on Netflix, and I just put it to the top of my queue! Will report my findings after watching it! But in the meantime, some photos of the handsome Mr. Nguyen below.

Meet Kazuki Kitamura

It is regrettable that I was not able to find as much information on this actor, as, say, a Korean actor. I couldn’t even locate a good high resolution photo of him on the internet! At this time, Korea is the Asian entertainment hegemonic power, and as result, it is much easier to find information and images/videos on the actors and entertainers of that country. *Sigh* Anyway…

I have reverted to watching Japanese dramas as of late, as I have saturated myself with all things Korean. No insult to the Koreans. I just have to get back to my Japanese roots, which is what introduced me to interest in Asian men and culture in the first place!

I began with watching “14際の母 (14-year-old Mother)”. The title to this series is a pretty good indication of what the storyline is about. Kazuki san plays an editor-in-chief at a 3rd-rate tabloid firm, sort of equivalent to the U.S.’s “Enquirer”. With rugged goodlooks, 42-year-old Kazuki san has been acting in Japanese dramas, movies and shows since the mid-90s. I can’t believe this guy is 42. He ages well! I found a few videos featuring him on youtube that I will be posting later. In the meantime, I wanted to introduce the faces of more Japanese actors/entertainers. I hope you all can look forward to this!
