Korean Actor Lee Byung-hun Stars as T-1000 in “Terminator Genisys”

The Terminator is back, and this time around, the villainous T-1000 cyborg will be portrayed by Hallyu actor Lee Byung-hun.

Terminator Genisys is the latest installment of the sci-fi action franchise and brings a new twist to the doomsday timeline. Both a sequel and reboot to the original 1984 Terminator film,Genisys recasts all of the main characters except for Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s titular killer robot. In the freshly released trailer, Lee is briefly featured as a deadly, shapeshifting liquid metal T-1000.

Watch the clip below:

Set in the year 2029, Genisys follows John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the resistance, as he continues to wage war against the killing machines created by Skynet, an artificial intelligence system. Mirroring the first movie, Connor sends his loyal soldier, Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), back in time to save his mother, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), from assassination and to ensure his own existence as the resistance draws closer to victory. However, Reese ends up landing in an alternate timeline, in which Sarah becomes orphaned at 9-years old and is raised by an older T-800 robot (Schwarzenegger), programmed to protect her.

Terminator Genisys is slated to release on July 1, 2015.

Top 5 SHAGs (Smoking Hot Asian Guys) of 2013

Now some of you may be wondering why we have the SHAG (Smoking Hot Asian Guys) series to begin with. Before you incorrectly judge, let us clarify a few things. This series was not created simply because we want to oggle at attractive men and base their worth on their looks. That would be far from our purpose.

This series was created because over the years we’ve recognized something very unfortunate. As Asians, we’ve been plagued by a number of negative and incorrect stereotypes. Sure, we’ve been able to fight off some of these myths, but many of these stereotypes still continue strongly today. One of the most widely known? A stereotype against Asian men.

Asian men, for some unknown reason, have been labeled as unattractive here in America. 

Of course, mainstream media is largely responsible for this. Too many times have we seen Asian males stereotyped as short, skinny, nerdy, awkward and unappealing in the public eye. Too many times have we heard that Asian girls can “date any race they want” while poor Asian men are left empty-handed.

Just look at the social media shots fired at New Zealand singer/songwriter Lorde concerning her “scrawny Asian boyfriend.” With such a high number of racist stereotypes thrown at him, we really begin to see just how mainstream media has depicted Asian men.

Of course, we know better. Asian men can be just as attractive, sexy and appealing as any other. This series was created to counter the very incorrect stereotype Asian men have been facing for years. Whether its their looks, talent, sense of fashion or even intelligence, these men have proven themselves as desirable.

In honor of the new year, we look back on the most popular SHAGs thus far. We present to you the Top 5 SHAGs (Smoking Hot Asian Guys) of 2013.

4) DANIEL HENNEY
“It’s rare to feel the need to swoon, sigh, giggle (yes, the term “giggle” is actually appropriate here) and blush all at the same time. If you thought this overwhelm of emotions was impossible, then you clearly haven’t seen the latest photoshoot from today’s Daily SHAG (Smoking Hot Asian Guy), Daniel Henney.”

The Daily SHAG | Lee Byung-hun’s Workout Video for G.I. Joe: Retaliation (aka The Best Four Minutes You’ll Spend Today)

It’s no secret that I love Lee Byung-hun. And it’s also no secret that I want you to love him too. I came across this workout/training video of the South Korean actor recently – and heavens, it was just too special to not devote a entire post of screen caps to share with our S.H.A.G. fans (Audrey readers). While the video caught moments of him talking (about what, I’m not sure), there was plenty of SHAG-worthy moments to go around.
