Hollywood is the land where dreams can become reality, and where fantasies come to life. Over the years, we have been captivated and wowed by countless blockbuster films, and most if not all of us, have been smitten by Hollywood’s gorgeous celebrities at one point. Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt and Chris Evans have had countless girls swooning over them, and more men than we can count have been enamoured by breath taking beauties such as Jessica Alba and Scarlett Johansson. While most of Hollywood’s biggest names are of Caucasian descent, there are several Asians who are doing really well for themselves in Hollywood, many of whom do have a substantial fan base of their own. Here are some of Asia’s heartthrobs and sweethearts in Hollywood that have won our hearts:
American born Jamie Chung is arguably one of the hottest Asian female actresses in Hollywood. With a largely successful media career under her belt, Jamie is more than just a pretty face. She initially catapulted to fame in the hit MTV reality series, The Real World: San Diego. Since then, Jamie has brought her charms to much larger productions such as Sucker Punch, The Grown Ups and Premium Rush.
South Korean actress Kim Soo-Hyun, or also more well-known as Claudia Kim, has slowly been making a name for herself in Hollywood. Undoubtedly a very attractive woman, Claudia made her entertainment debut by winning a modelling contest in 2005, and went on to appear in several Korean productions. She first gained international attention when she was given a role in the TV series Marco Polo. Recently taking up a major role as Dr.Helen Cho in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can surely expect more of Ms. Kim in the future.
Fan Bingbing is one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, renowned for both her films as well as her radiant beauty. Fan has topped the Forbes China Celebrity Top 100 Celebrity list for three consecutive years – 2013, 2014 and 2015, which is quite an impressive achievement. Having starred in countless Chinese as well as Hong Kong films, Fan seems to be bringing her talent and beauty to Hollywood, having participated in the mega blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past as the teleporting mutant, Blink.
Maggie Q is not an unfamiliar name in Hollywood, having appeared and starred in numerous major Hollywood productions such as Rush Hour 2, Mission Impossible 3 and more recently in the highly popular Divergent movies. Still a stunning woman at age 37, Maggie Q actually began her career in the modelling industry before venturing into acting.
Another notable mention is Priyanka Chopra, a gorgeous actress who has established herself as one of the biggest Bollywood stars today. While this Indian bombshell has yet to officially take part in any Hollywood productions, her beauty and talents have not gone unnoticed. Priyanka is set to appear in the major Baywatch remake alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
Ki Hong Lee is a Korean American actor, who shot to fame in his role of Minho in The Maze Runner.

The Maze Runner aside, Lee also plays Dong Nguyen in the popular Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Lee Byung Hun is a South Korean actor who has acted in several well-acclaimed Korean movies and TV series. Lee stunned the world with his chiselled physique in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and later reprised his role as Storm Shadow in the second instalment of the G.I. Joe series, providing female audiences with even more eye candy.

Like many other attractive celebrities, Asian-American actor Daniel Henney not only has a notable career in acting, but in modelling as well.

Most people who watch action or fighting movies would know Donnie Yen. The star of the critically acclaimed Ip Man movies, Donnie has wowed his audiences with unforgettable fighting scenes. However, his fighting scenes are not just for show as he is actually a full-fledged martial artist in real life as well, which probably explains why he is still able to keep such an incredible physique for a man his age. Just like Priyanka Chopra, he has yet to act in any Hollywood productions, but is set to appear in the highly anticipated Star Wars: Rogue One movie.
