From local celebs such as Andie Chen and Allan Wu to South Korean heartthrobs Lee Min-ho and Park Bo-gum, here are the yummy men to wish a happy birthday to.
1. Max Nattapol Diloknawarit (June 9, 1994)
With a mischievous grin, a chiselled face and a muscular body blessed with abs and strong arms, it’s hard to not be lured in by the boyish charms of Thai actor Nattapol Diloknawarit, who goes by the name Max. Since shooting to fame in a gay drama Together With Me (2017 and 2018) with fellow actor Tul Pakorn, Max, who turns 28 in June, has also starred in another drama Bangkok Love Stories 2: Innocence (2018). Besides acting, the fresh-faced youth has also modelled, graced magazine covers and hosted travel shows on Thai television.
2. Allan Wu (June 11, 1972)
Allan Wu turns 50 in June, but we think the boyish actor-host could probably beat us in the gym easy. With his rugged good looks and trim physique, Allan has become a poster boy for fitness since gracing the debut issue of Men’s Health Singapore in 2003. His secret? The father of two, who was married to former actress Wong Li Lin, revealed to Young Parents in 2018 that his favourite three exercises are push-ups, pull-ups and swimming. So if you ever need motivation to get back to your workout routine, head to his Instagram where he posts many photos of his own fitness journey, as well as glimpses into his family and personal life.
