Underappreciated Actor of Another Color #23: Rick Yune
~ Special Edition Post ~
Whooooooo...it has been a while (six months, to be exact). But that's not what makes this Korean American actor special. See...I'm dedicating this one to my man gyal Amaya because this is her man.
It's perfectly understandable, of course. Touted as one of 2002's Sexiest Men by People magazine, Rick Yune is over six feet of honed, chiseled, lethal gorgeousness.
Born in 1971, this screenwriter, producer and martial artist first caught my eye during The Fast and the Furious, (which I only admit to seeing because he happened to be in it). God...he was fine in the movie.
I recognized him in Snow Falling on Cedars, and during Ninja Assassin, my eyes swiveled back and forth between him and Rain, unsure of where to settle.
It's strange, though; not until I found this picture did I know he had such a brilliant and beautiful smile. Talk about a panty-dropper....
