Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin on "Lost" (and who, for those who don't know, speaka-da-Engrish--that is, perfect American English like the perfect American that he is) is up for People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" this year. If you think he's hot--and why wouldn't you? Even LVHIFF's
Anderson Le thinks so, calling Kim's "Lost" role "a positive portrayal of Asian American masculinity in mainstream media"--please vote him "Sexiest Man Alive" in People's ONLINE POLL. Hey, Fu Manchu, Charlie Chan, Mr. Yunioshi, and Long Duk Dong: take that!
