They are two of the most eligible bachelors in South Korea. Both in their 30’s. Both handsome yet strikingly different. One is a hunk the other is a quintessential flower boy.
GONG YOO for Singles magazine December 2013
One of my favorite South Korean actor. He has that boyish charm when he smiles. A perfect specimen of man-boy. It’s probably one of the reasons why many are enamored with this sexy hunk. For this cover shoot he flew to Jeju island looking right at home with nature.
LEE JUN KI for STAR1 magazine December 2013
He floated on everyone’s radar as the mischievous second lead in 2005’s My Girl almost stealing Lee Dong Wook’s thunder. He was whisked off to the military for close to 2 years and has recently made a comeback starring in 2 dramas Arang and the Magistrate, Two Weeks. He still has that “flower boy” quality with a blend of maturity on full display as he covers for star1 magazine.
Both are products of a competition. Both are gorgeous sporting the pixie cut. Both are acclaimed actresses.
CHRIS LI for Femina magazine November 2013
She’s Super Girl! No really, she is. She was discovered and won the title in the nationwide singing competition “Super Girl” back in 2005. Now, she’s done numerous movies and graced countless magazine covers. She displays her distinct androgynous look for Femina magazine’s cover shoot this month. She has recently won her biggest award to date by bringing home the trophy for Best Worldwide Act at the 2013 MTV EMA.
SUN LI for SELF magazine November 2013
Betty Sun may not have won in 2001’s Star Search but look where she is now! Her most notable work is the highly popular Legend of Zhen Zhuan where she played the heroine. But I bet, her biggest achievement is marrying Chinese actor Deng Chao. In this cover shoot, she rocks the retro look to a T donning men’s fashion items yet still ultra feminine.
Both of them are singers. Although one is better known as a singer and the other as an actor. Obviously, both are hotties in their own right.Each with a different charm.
EDDIE PENG for L’Officiel Hommes November 2013
One of my Taiwanese biases and for good reasons. From a geeky, gangly kid, now he’s grown into this sophisticated, confident man gracing covers of magazines and landing several endorsement deals. He’s in the middle of filming his biggest film yet, Rise of the Legend, playing the iconinc kung fu legend Wong Fei Hong. In this cover shoot he shows both his playful nature and serious side.
HAN GENG for Men’s UNO for November 2013
Best known as a former member of boy group Super Junior. He left the group and established himself as a solo act with tremendous success even overshadowing his former band especially in the mainland where he reaped tons of recognition. Nowadays, he has ventured into acting and will be featured in the Hollywood film Transformers 4. In this cover shoot he transforms into pure enigmatic male elegance.
Both are adorable and pretty. But the comparison ends there. One is Queen. The other is tapped as the next big thing. Yet when it comes to fashion, these two are both chameleons.
RAINIE YANG for Vogue November 2013
She hasn’t done a drama in 2 years. Still, she reigns supreme as idol queen. She’s been in the industry for more than a decade. It’s hard to believe that this cutie is turning 30! She taps into her youthdal days, remembering her early Vogue covers for this Vogue cover shoot with no less than Mika Ninagawa with clothes and accessories by Michael kors, Loewe, Charlotte Olympia, Topshop, Moschino,Blumarine and Kenzo.
ANNIE CHEN for Bella儂儂 November 2013
This young lady is no stranger to fashion, having been discovered at a fashion competition in 2007. She never looked back since debuting in 2008. She’s a staple in local television starring in back to back dramas. This month she graces the cover of Bella magazine once again showing what she’s got as the next big thing.

It’s a three-way battle!
The look: Biker Chic
The Event: OK! Magazine Celebrity Street Beat Ceremony (Shanghai)
It might be cliche but this trend gives a tough yet ultra chic statement. But not everybody can pull it off. Even the most expensive Balmain jacket or a Burberry Prorsum cannot make the man (or woman). Character makes the difference whether you’re walking the street, the ramp or in this case, the red carpet.
Let’s take a look at what these stars have.
Motorcycle jacket, Check. Riding boots, check. Leather pants (or tight fitting black jeans), check. We all know the the jacket is the key element for motorcycle or biker fashion. It’s where you can make a statement.
All three men exude a different aura. Nicky Wu chose to prep it up with a striped tie. Daniel Wu glams it up with a black turtleneck and those boots! I would love to have them myself. He puts the “chic” in biker chic. But I think the gold chain is a tad much. I say lose it. But as far as overall appeal is concerned, I gotta hand it to my boy Bolin Chen. The zipped up leather jacket, black leather shoes, skinny jeans, facial hair and a devilish grin to top it off, make up for a complete cute-meets-rebel look.
Who do you think looks best?
Considered as two of Korea’s most handsome men. Both are amazing actors. One is off the market sadly but the other is still a bachelor. Hooray for the ladies!
JANG DONG GUN for The Celebrity November
Already in his 40’s, married and a father, this hunk ‘s still got what it takes to make ladies swoon and a celebrity status others envy. No wonder he was tapped to grace the cover of The Celebrity‘s maiden issue.
KANG DONG WON for High Cut Vol. 112
He’s been absent from the limelight for almost two years, thanks to the mandatory military service. Yet he’s star has never shined brighter. Channeling the “bad boy” type he graces High Cut‘s October-November issue.
Both are award winning actresses. Pretty and petite. One is my favorite, the other I respect.
IVY CHEN for W Queen October 2013
She’s got a best actress trophy for the movie Hear Me at the Taipei Film Festival. This pixie like goddess is actually turning 31! Would you believe it? She looks like a fair princess for W Queen magazine. On the cover Ivy wears the white macramé lace sleeves from Miu Miu. She showcases her angelic beauty in a white lace mini dress with white flower adornments from Jill Stuart and Red Valentino Faille Mini Tank Dress in Sand.
KWAI LUN MEI for ELLE October 2013

Always edgy, she rocks the vintage glam in a chiffon dress decorated with metal love from Burberry Prorsum; knot bracelet by Balenciaga; ring and diamond earrings both from Louis Vuitton; Heels by Dior and the hollow carved lace dress, decorated with feathers gradient sequined vest, gauze bow hair bands, thin belts, lace high heels all by Louis Vuitton and platinum diamond bracelet from Chanel.
