South Korean hotties...er...men

OK. Sometimes I feel weird doing this. But I'm fessing up to it anyway.

Chances are that we are going to be paired with a little boy from South Korea. I've only ever seen myself with a girl, so I'm working on changing my mental picture.

But the thing is, in my head there aren't a lot of  pictures of what Asian boys or men look like. So I've been trying to pay more attention to Asian boys and men so I can picture our family. (This is the curse of being a visual person--you are always trying to pre-visualize what things will look like.)

One goes about this process very carefully. For example, you don't want to Google "pictures of Asian boys" or you are likely to wind up at some freaky disturbing sites.

This is where CNN has stepped in to help a girl out. I'm sure they didn't do it just for me, but I appreciate their timing nevertheless. They just announced the 20 hottest male celebrities from South Korea. Plenty of boys/men to look at and my mental photo album is growing by leaps and bounds.

The only glitch--the men on the list were chosen "purely on the basis of how much drool they elicited from the female members of the staff." Other factors to making the list were "their chocolate abs, sublime faces and lean, mean, sex-machine bodies."

This is a little disturbing since I'm trying to be all motherly and thinking that my future son might look like one of these guys. Yikes!

Go here to see videos of all these musicians, actors and celebs.

Mothers be warned.

  1. This post just made my day!! Thank you.

    Also, if you want to see any of these hotties/men in action, I'd like to suggest mysoju.com which is a great resource for watching Korean dramas and movies.

  2. My wife and I adopted a baby boy last year from SK. I'd suggest looking for images of Korean toddlers if that helps rather than "20 hottest men" (was your husband looking at "20 hottest female Koreans" before you realized it'd likely be a boy? My bet is "no").

    Another idea would be to visit Korea (not sure if you've been but it's a great/ easy/ safe trip).

    PS - while we all like to think our children are beautiful, odds are that they won't be. Just look around you on the street - what's the % of good-lookin' folk? Definately <50% Still, they're beautiful to us.

  3. Hu Gadarn--thanks for stopping by. I see that we have very different senses of humor! I am writing facetiously of course. And like you, I know our children will be beautiful to us because we find beauty based on so much more than physical characteristics. All the best!
