    Where’s Hu Bing?


    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.

    As an Indian who lives in Singapore and then living in Canada. I have felt inferior in terms of looks due to me being a minority in both countries. In Singapore , I felt ugly because everyone was Chinese and I was the only tall, dark and Hairy guy. Coming to Canada I felt ugly because I did not have fair skin or blue eyes or blonde hair. Seeing this project gives me hope but I still feel like you are leaving out Indian men with dark skin. Light skinned Indian men are celebrated but I’m like the dirt of the earth

    I was wondering how I can become a model?
