“Yeah, I rode a Ferris wheel with him once,” you can now say after attending this swoon-worthy event.
If this is what Japanese farmers look like, you can stick me on a train to the nearest country town.
People may think that being beautiful has no downsides; you’re popular, you get drinks for free, you look good in all your clothes.
But believe it or not, being beautiful isn’t always easy! Just ask Kuwaiti actor Abdul Aziz Al Kassar, who was recently arrested in Saudi Arabia for upsetting public order by being “too handsome”.
A few weeks ago, in an attempt to add a little more beef to our site – which until recently had been dominated by beautiful ladies and Mr Sato – we introduced you guys to a gorgeous Filipino KFC manager.

Want to know more about him and see some more pics? Of course you do!
Last year, eight-year-old Russian model Kristina Pimenova was hailed by some netizens as the “most beautiful girl in the world”. We have yet to hear of any crowning of the “most handsome boy in the world”, but one particular preteen male model has been getting increasingly popular among netizens in Asia as of late.

Posed portraits in history textbooks can all look the same after a while. Formal clothes, dark to create enough contrast for a black-and-white photo; stiff posture because old cameras required the sitter to be still for at least a few minutes; no smiling, in case the photo blurred.

Fetch me my smelling salts, Watson, this woman has fainted!
They say that love knows no bounds, and that regardless of the languages two people speak, kindred spirits will always find a way. That’s mostly nonsense, especially when you’re eyes-deep in legal documents or trying to explain tax returns to someone who can barely comment on the weather let alone discuss their hopes and dreams, but when it comes to spotting a hottie, trivial things such as national borders and words do not even factor into it. Case in point: women in Thailand are currently going nuts about one particular Japanese journalist who visited their country earlier this month, resulting in a flood of photos and comments about him being uploaded to Facebook and Twitter, to the degree that national newspapers and TV stations began reporting it as news.
