Eye Candy : Joseph Cheng for MRRM


Joseph (Joe) Cheng is quite stylish and urbane in Lanvin in this pictorial for Hong Kong's MRRM magazine. It's been awhile since I've seen a men's fashion editorial so on point with it's styling as every outfit he has on actually looks wearable and the whole communications theme is well executed too. The attractive Taiwanese actor who started out as model recently appeared in the drama Singles Villa and the film The Beloved alongside Wang Likun and Korean actor Kim Bum. I used to watch Taiwanese dramas and It Started With A Kiss which starred Joe and Ariel Lin was one I enjoyed back in the day. It was based on the Japanese manga Mischievous Kiss (Itazura na Kiss) which had a a pretty typical storyline of the naive but optimistic girl who crushes on a cold moody guy and they slowly fall in love when they're forced to live under the same roof. I think this scenario has been used in countless Asian dramas and back then it did feel kind of fresh. Joe had the most awful permed mullet hairdo but somehow he still managed to look cute. His haircut is much better these days and the rest of him looks pretty good as well.

The winner of the Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit is Gabrielle of A Glass of Ice. Congratulations Gabrielle!

Very handsome indeed. I used to watch a lot of Taiwanese dramas too. So true about the storyline, I enjoyed it though, especially when they have eye candy like him :)

Vanessa N said...

....HOLY SHIT I DIDN'T EVEN RECOGNIZE HIM. (NGL, I clicked this post just for the eye candy before you mentioned he was in ISWAK and I was like, "Oh, he was? Which character did he play?")
Damn *-*

ISWAK was one of the few Taiwanese dramas I watched back in the day and really enjoyed. I thought they were so cute together that I even watched...Love or Bread??? (But LOB was terribad...to 17 year old Vanessa anyways) I even watched bits of the Korean adaption a few days ago because it was on Netflix, but I didn't care for it since the female lead was kinda annoying in an over-dramatic way.
