The rise of Asian supermodels ranks among the most important things to happen within the modeling industry’s past decade. The girls may get the bulk of the attention, but the elite group of Asian male models is every bit as exciting. Boys like Sung Jin Park, Phillip Huang, JaeYoo and Daisuke Ueda are dynamic in campaigns and editorials alike – bringing elegance to every shot all while breaking boundaries. Photography duo Idris & Tony capture these superstars in an exclusive portfolio for Models.com. Check out our interview with Idris & Tony here!

    Where’s Hu Bing?

    Seriously?

    He’s the top model in China by a long shot. Dude is aesthetic beyond belief.

  8. Hapa guy says:

    Lots of these guys are either mixed or either “stereotypically” Asian with sharp features.

    Asia has a ton of guys with full faces, deep eyes, and symmetry. Tons of guys that are 6’0″ too. Lots of them are hiding behind glasses or working themselves to death just to make it to the next day, but I wish the stereotype of Asian males being ugly would just go away…. True that a lot of them just don’t take care of their appearance, but it’s just part of culture.

    Hope one day we can move away from the white standard of beauty. It took me a long time to stop comparing myself to whites and just comparing myself to… myself.

    Tae Hwan Kim and Daisuke Ueda rein supreme.

  10. Carrie says:

    I’ll take one of each, please–with a side of John Cho!
