There is an incorrect stereotype in American media that Asian men are not hot - that is false...
by David Davila (playwright / songwriter)
I have always appreciated the beauty of Asian men, however Western Media has never agreed with me. It's time for that to end!
HERE ARE 10 REASONS WHY:
Reason #1: STEVEN YUEN - The Walking Dead star is one of only a handful of famous Asian-American men... probably because he's so dreamy, but come on America there are thousands of famous American white guys we can do better for our Asian-American brothers!
Reason #2: HARRY SHUM JR - The Glee star is a hunk and a half... hubba hubba... can't wait to watch his new show on Netflix
Reason #3: CONRAD RICAMORA - Well I've had a secret crush on this guy for years but now that How to Get Away with Murder is a monster hit everyone is finding out about him. I guess the secret is out!
Reason #4: VINCENT RODRIGUEZ III - He plays the heart-throb Josh Chan on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the man of my dreams, in my dreams.
Reason #5: GODFREY GAO - This CITY OF BONES star is so man-crush worthy! I mean... right??????????
Reason #6: ETHAN LE PHONG and ELI LEWIS - Broadway star Ethan Le Phong wasn't afraid to shed his clothes on film and neither is dancer and web star Eli Lewis... for good reason. These boys are hot hot hot and fighting stereotypes one project at a time!!!
Reason #7: ARCHIE KAO - The CSI star is a hunk and a half!
Reason #8: BRIAN TEE - I mean... yowza... he's on a show called Chicago MD... never heard of it... but yowza... maybe I'll start watching :)
Reason #9: RENE GUBE - and also reason #2 to watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend... he plays a bro-tastic priest... Father I have sinned...
Okay... those are all just more pictures of Godfrey Gao but jeeeezzzzzzzzzzz....
Okay wow... I have to cool down a little bit... breath... okay well now okay.... here it is...
Reason #10: oh... ALL OF THESE HOTTIES I FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM...
Okay... I know what you're thinking... "David, you're marginalizing Asian men by turning them into sex objects," and to that I say... "yeah you're probably right." In my defense though... Asian men are really hot... and deserve to be seen as more than just nerds.
Ki Hong Lee... yeah... look at those puppy dog eyes and melt...
