Around the same time I made the Smexiest Korean Actors video, I actually also wrote this one, or at least made the list of smexy gents I wanted to talk about. You see, for me it was actually a lot easier to make my smexy Japanese guys list because I’ve been watching Japanese Dramas longer than Korean dramas. And, while I had to make some cuts, I could handily make the list the guys that I watch for and follow when watching Japanese dramas.
I think it’s kind of funny actually though, that a lot of these guys 1) overlap, and 2) are getting older. Actually, scratch that funny bit. It’s not funny getting older!
A lot of these guys I watched in high school dramas back when I first got into the drama scene. Particularly Gokusen, because a lot of them were in that drama. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, Gokusen 1-3 was a drama with a whole bunch of smexy menz in it.
Going on seven or eight years now, these guys are no longer able to do high school dramas. Some of them are even getting married, starting families; in real life AND in dramaland. I’m still kind of in denial about it all. For realz I am. I don’t look forward to the day where my favorite Japanese actors are pushed aside by a whole new crop of youngins.
I’m starting to sound old. Forgive me.
If you’re one of those young peeps, and you haven’t seen some or all of these guys before, or if you’re new to the Jdrama world, these men are every bit as talented and as smexy as any actor that I’ve seen: American drama, Korean drama, Taiwanese drama – you name it! So for me, they come highly recommended.
In fact, I think I’m going to be starting to watch Oguri Shun in BORDER this weekend.
