According to People Magazine, in their annual list of “Sexiest Men Alive” that always makes the news around this time of year, we learn that they named Daniel Dae Kim, star of ABC’s hit TV show Lost, as one of the sexiest men alive:
Because he plays such a serious character on ABC’s Lost, people are pleasantly surprised to see Kim, 37, grin offscreen. “I’ve actually gotten a lot of compliments on my smile,” says the married father of two. Even sweeter, the actor, who came to the U.S. from Korea when he was a toddler, is a romantic. “I’ve hung onto almost every love letter any girl has ever written me.”
I also heard that People Magazine named Ken Watanabe, the Japanese star of recent movies such as The Last Samurai and Batman Begins as one of the “Sexiest International Men Alive.” Not too bad, I guess. Nice job, Asian guys and keep up the good work of helping to slowly change the image of Asian men in the U.S. Every little bit helps.
