Daniel Dae Kim is emerging as a shirtless favorite on the final season of lost. We’re getting to see much more of the Asian male actor this year and we’re very happy about it!
South Korean-born James Kyson Lee hasn’t been in Hollywood long, but he’s making a name for himself in a hurry. He landed his first-ever TV audition and got a guest role on JAG. Later, he got a recurring role as Ando Masahashi on Heroes for the first season, and was made a regular by season two.
John Cho was named by People magazine as one of the sexiest men alive for 2009 in part for his role on FlashFloward as Demetri Noh. His claim to fame came from his role in American Pie where he popularized the term “MILF.” Cho also gained popularity for his role as Harold in the Harold and Kumar movies.
Daniel Dae Kim is arguably the most well-know Asian male celeb on TV today. In his role as Jin on ABC’s Lost, Kim has garnered tons of attention for his heritage (Korean), his acting, and his ripped body. People named him one of the sexiest men alive in 2005 and TV Guide followed up with a similar award in 2006. Daniel Dae Kim was born in South Korea but grew up on the East Coast of the US. Incidentally, I was watching an old rerun of Seinfeld the other day when up popped a young Daniel Dae Kim playing a med student with just a couple of lines.
