A few weeks ago, we shared our ten favorite female hapa celebs with you. In the spirit of gender equity and equal objectification, we now present to you our ten favorite male hapa celebs!
Adrian is a three-time Olympic gold medalist who first debuted his banging body and 6’6’’ frame at the 2008 Summer Olympics. With abs like that and those beautiful Asian eyes... How can we resist? And who ever heard of an Asian taller than 5'7''? (jk jk jk jk..... not jk.)
Criss is one of our favorite Hollywood heartthrobs who first graced us with his presence to international acclaim starring as Harry Potter in A Very Potter Musical. But more likely, you know him from Glee.
Dale has worked steadily as an actor in film and tv over the years. We know him best for his slicked back hair and undeniable mafioso charm as Ken Jeong's notoriously good-looking sidekick in The Hangover, but you may recognize those Asian eyes and American smile from TV shows like Charmed, The Event, CSI and Hawaii Five-0.
Daniel Henney is an actor/model-- you may recognize him from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Last Stand, or your dreams.
We love Keanu! From Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures to The Matrix to his standout turn in Emma Thompson+Kenneth Branaugh’s Much Ado About Nothing, Keanu can do no wrong. And just look at that face.
What do we admire more in Mark Dacasacos: his martial arts film career (including a movie literally titled Dim Sum) or his stint as the Chairman on Iron Chef? Whatever, we’re not choosing.

Eight-time Olympic medalist Apollo Ohno is a national treasure, both in speed skating and in looks. And Kaela once saw a segment where he did yoga with Gracie Gold and he was good at that too. #Sochi2014
The director of HBO's True Detective, Carey Fukunaga has both brains and beauty.
We'll just leave this picture of Jamaican-Panamanian-Chinese model Tyson Beckford using chopsticks here. Don't bite your lip at us in that seductive way, Tyson! Ok. Do.
Nicole Gale Anderson
This breakout star started out with Disney but has since moved on to networks like the CW and ABC Family, starring as Kristin Kreuk's younger sister on Beauty and the Beast and as an orphan trying to find her family in a mysterious town on Ravenswood, respectively. She's adorbz and hard-working.
Gawd do we love her! This Hapa-Gal was on the CW before it was the CW (we called it the WB back in those days) starring as Lana Lang on Smallville and more recently as Detective Catherine Chandler on Beauty and the Beast. She's super pretty, seems super nice, dresses really well... I mean... We hate (slash LOVE) her to death.
Miss Q is what over here at 2G1A like to call a "bad ass b!tch." She moved to Tokyo and Hong Kong to pursue a modeling career, not knowing the language, and was picked up by Jackie Chan's management company to train as an action star. Since then, Magz has had starring roles in numerous films. You probably know her best from the hit television spy thriller, Nikita. Aside from being a BAAB (Bad Ass Asian Biotch), she is a fierce advocate for PETA and rescues dogs.
This Hapa was raised predominately in Tokyo but managed to finagle a Journalism major and minors in Japanese and dramatic arts from the University of Oklahoma before landing a gig with Fox Sports Network as a sideline reporter. Since then she has pursued acting in film and TV. We recently saw her as Nick's stripper girlfriend in New Girl and as Chess Roberts in Iron Man 2. She currently stars as Sloan Sibbith on HBO's The Newsroom. Oh, she also was a model for a hot second. Is there anything she can't do?
Lead Vocalist of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's and punk rock goddess Karen O is practically a household name, but if you don't know her from her general bad-assery, she was recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song for the movie Her, "The Moon Song".
Professional dancer and model Cheryl Burke's claim to celebrity fame began when she and partner Drew Lachey won the second season of Dancing with the Stars making her the first female professional to win. Since then, Burke has participated in seventeen seasons of DWTS, taking home the mirror ball trophy twice consecutively. In her autobiography, Dancing Lessons, Cheryl reveals her past as a victim of child abuse and abusive relationships and her desire to help others who are in similar situations. A beautiful do-gooder. We like her.
17-year old Kyla Ross was one of the "Fierce Five" at the London Olympics, the name dubbed to the American Gymnastics team. At just 15 years old, this little "Mighty Mouse" qualified as second reserve in her Uneven Bars routine eventually helping the Americans go gold FTW. She's fierce, she's mighty, she's seventeen. We hate her mostly because she's so awesome at a young age... which is exactly why we love her. Be our lil sis? PLZ.
Truly a triple (or maybe quintiple threat), Nicole Sherz started her career as a member of the early y2k girl band, Eden's Crush, before joining the Pussycat Dolls as their lead singer in 2003. Cultivating her skills as a musician and showbiz personality, our girl Scherz is still a singer and songwriter but donates much of her time and charity as an ambassador to the Special Olympics. Plus, have you seen her sing "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina?" Named as one of VH1's "100 Greatest Women in Music", we can't help but wonder if she might just be "Greatest Person of All Time"... Thoughts?
This singer/songwriter hails from Brooklyn where she grew up in a musically oriented family (her Dad is sitar legend Ravi Shankar and Mom is American concert producer Sue Jones). She rose to fame in the early 2000's with her country-folk-pop-haunting hit "Don't Know Why" and has continued to make music ever since. In addition to the band that backs her on tour, she is also part of a female country trio, Puss N' Boots and a country cover band, The Little Willies.
At 52, singer and actress Nia Peeples is proving daily that age ain't nothing but a number. In her younger years, she played Nicole Chapman in the original Fame, Karen Taylor Winters on The Young and the Restless, and Sydney Cooke on Walker, Texas Ranger. She currently stars on the hit ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars. In addition to being a wonderful actress and singer, she is also a health and fitness guru who runs an organization called Elements of Life, which promotes fitness, well being, and healthy lifestyle choices.
