Hello! Marco Benjamin Lee

This fineness needs no introduction, but in case you want to know his name, it’s 34-year-old tv personality/hottie/half-Korean Marco Benjamin Lee. Not that he’s letting the half-Korean part stop him. I absolutely do not blame him for wanting Korean citizenship, as he is in the entertainment biz, South Korea is where it’s at! But of course, I do believe his reasons for wanting South Korean citizenship are likely more profound. Let’s keep a look out for him on Korean tv!

BWLB Loves All Asian Men — Really!

I have nothing against Asian men of other nationalities. I truly love and am open to all of them. As a matter of fact, color, nationality and ethnicity do not matter to me when it comes to finding true love. I am an equal opportunity woman that will give any genuine guy a chance that is truly interested in knowing and loving me. That said, and since this is an Asian men appreciation blog, Asian men are the focus of this post. You may be wondering why I’m defending myself as if I am up on the witness stand. 🙂

A few days ago, I came across this video on youtube, and was really moved by this young man’s concerns, as they are valid concerns. Kon, a young Thai man, finds annoyance in the fact that in the majority of the AM/BW online communities he frequents, black women seem to only mention Korean, Japanese and Chinese men as the Asian nationalities of their choice in men, omitting all Asian men of other nationalities.

I do believe that most black women in general do not have an abundance of Asian men in their everyday surroundings, and if they do, there is still an invisible divide, that is keeping them from connecting. This can be very frustrating for both black women and Asian men, who are interested in each other, and so the first thing each party may do is try to use the internet to find black women and Asian men that they can connect with. Let’s keep it real, and let’s take Korean men for example.

K-Pop alone is all over the internet…Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Its so easy to find pictures, bios, videos, etc. on the Jung Jihoons, G-Dragons, Kim Hyun Joongs and Super Juniors of the world that way. With the influx and ease of accessibility of Korean dramas, movies and music, is it no wonder that Korean men get most of our attention?

South Korea has really stepped up and decided that they want to show the world what they’re workin’ with, and boy they have! But should guys like Kon, or Asian guys of other nationalities feel annoyed or threatened with all the attention that K-Pop and Korean men have been getting from black women? I personally don’t think so. A man is a man, no matter what color or nationality he is. It’s not that we don’t love all of you Asian guys, it’s just that we’re giving attention to what’s smack-dab in front of us.

I will add that it isn’t just because K-pop is easily accessible that it has garnered our attention. K-pop is, as one of BWLB’s avid contributors has said before, “a well-oiled machine” and gives fans, no matter what their color, so much more than what they could possibly ask for. That said, I do believe that the blog should be more diverse in its coverage of Asian men of other nationalities. It is quite the challenge, but I will do my best to bring more diversity. I want to thank Kon for bringing up this subject and I look forward to what you all have to say in this regard.

Meet Ian Anthony Dale

Ian Anthony Dale is a handsome 32-year-old actor from Minnesota of Japanese, French and Engish descent. Ian is currently a regular in the NBC drama The Event and has been acting since the early 2000s. Check out the video clip below, where Ian discusses his upbringing and ethnic background. It seems I may have to complaining less that there are not enough Asian actors in American film and tv. There certainly seems to be some improvement. 🙂
Thanks BiAlamode for the tip!


Ananda Everingham Is Easy On the Eyes

29-year-old Ananda Everingham is a gorgeous Lao-Australian actor from Thailand. With an Australian father and Laotian mother, it is no wonder that his looks are so exotic and breathtaking. Check out his Garnier hair product commercial as well as some hot images I’m sure you will all enjoy!

More Black and Asian Lovin’!

More declarations of Asian men who love Black women! This is what I’m talking about! Yes, these guys REALLY DO EXIST!! Yes, there are Asian men out there who really do love and prefer Black women!! I received an email from a young Black woman who was curious to know if I was embarrassed that my whole blog was dedicated to men who don’t find Black women attractive. I hope she is still reading my blog, and I hope that she sees this post. It’s simple: the more and more we express our appreciation for Asian men, the more Asian men will reciprocate, because they do and have always felt the same way! Don’t believe the media and don’t believe the hype that Black women are destined to be alone and that everyone finds them ugly and unattractive. It’s just not true! Check out the video clip below. There’s your proof!

A Few Reasons Why An Asian Guy May Not Approach You

No doubt this isn’t the first time any of us have heard this, but this really helps to put it even more into perspective. In the attached video, the poster points out that the reasons can be different as to why an Asian guy won’t approach you. Of course, as black women, we may automatically think that its because they don’t find us attractive (and sometimes that could surely be the case). However, according to this gentleman’s insight, it is probably and most likely cultural.

Dennis OhMG

There really just isn’t much to say except “OMG”. This guy is drop-dead gorgeous. Would you agree? I always knew it, but I needed a reminder. 29-year-old Korean-American Dennis Joseph O’Neil is a model and actor born in Texas to a Korean mother and American G.I. father. He’s best known in South Korea and goes by the name Dennis Oh. You can read more about him here, but you’d probably just like to check out the hot images of him below instead. I’d love to see him in more American film and television.
