Takeshi someone, not the old guy Kitano, the other guy, Kaneshiro or something

He is an actor/singer/model. He's part Taiwanese part Japanese. One of the better looking Asian males IMO

(he's been around for a decade or so now so if you google his name you might come up with some pretty outdated images )

isnt Tyson Beckford part asian?
Takashi Mania ? [/b][/quote]
yeah Takashi Mania is so cute
he's probably the only asian model I like
he's been around for a while
just that he doesn't have many news recently
my friend and I bumped into him in taipei once

I know who you're talking about. Takeshi Kaneshiro was in Chungking Express and Hero. He's eye candy.

I agree, he has a very dramatic face and stunning cheekbones. Once again, I'll reiterate that I would so love to see more Asian models on the major runways.

I just looked him up and he's really beautiful! Is he actually a model or just another model/actor/singer...? Nevermind, I'll look it up for myself. Here's a picture of him, by the way.

It seems that he's basically only an actor, although I did find this... "Kaneshiro has also found success as an international print model for the designer label Prada, and appears extensively in advertisements all over Asia." So yes, he is in a way.
Has anyone seen any of them? I haven't really had any luck so far.

^^ "dome" looks scary and doesn't look fully asian.. but i don't know how thai ppl really look like. i don't like the food though but that's irrelevant

and i don't like won bin.. hes short
I believe Dome is part German...

And isn't Won Bin 5'11"? By what standards is that short?

I must be a midget then, or a hobbit.... [/b][/quote]
5'11"? he doesn't look it. i saw him on tv.. maybe the girl standing next to him was tall so he looked short.

This is a touch off-topic, but Takeshi Kaneshiro is apparently also 5'11". Clearly, that old excuse of there being few Asian models because of height doesn't hold any water.

like rayncloudx said they're actors. in Korea actors are more popular than the models. they take shoots of magazine covers and ads or sometimes they do catwalk on the fashionshow.
anyway Won Bin is defenately a hotty one. he's so sexy
yeah ,i like WB

Actually, you may argue one's nationality to be Taiwanese (though that's only a futile silly insistence on behalf of the Taiwanese people), but there's no such thing as one's ethnicity being Taiwanese. Ethnicity-wise, both Taiwanese and the people in Mainland China are considered Chinese.

That's the most anal, technically correct way to look at it.
