I've never really been a fan of long hair on men but somehow Chen Kun manages to pull it off. Okay his handsome face and gorgeous mane of hair probably have everything to do with that. He's appeared in some creative editorials and I love the way he always commits to them. This one for Modern Weekly with the cool artistic touches and funky styling is no exception. My longstanding crush on Chen Kun was renewed after watching his commanding performance in the epic historical drama The Rise of Phoenixes (凰权·弈天下) last year.  After completing filming The Weary Poet and The Onmyoji, it looks like the actor who also runs his own artist management company and acting school has been taking a break and travelling. I'm just guessing this based on his Instagram which I follow.  It looks like he visited NYC last month. And when did he turn 43? He's another one who looks forever youthful. I hardly see a difference from his ultra suave Van Cleef & Arpels campaign in 2012.
So I've been asked why I primarily post editorials featuring Asian actors/actresses. The answer comes down to personal interest and I want to share editorials that are lesser seen. I also want to share a broader view of Asian entertainment and Asian beauty because it's not especially well represented by Asian Americans in Western entertainment.  In particular Asian men have been misrepresented and unfairly maligned through Western entertainment. They are often shown as weak, nerdy, awkward, the butt of jokes and considered generally unattractive. Well Asian men are not represented by Jackie Chan or Ken Jeong or Daniel Dae Kim. They can be classically handsome like Chen Kun or Won Bin or Daniel Henney and are a far cry from the stereotypes depicted.
