Jake Choi Shirtless and Underwear Photos. Famewatchers, we’d like to introduce to you our new imaginary boyfriend. He is young. He is hawt. He’s got some nice washboard abs. He likes Calvin Klein underwear and he looks good wearing them. He is an up-and-coming Hollywood star. He kinda looks like The Hottest Asian Youtube Star aka Ryan Higa. He looks gorgeous shirtless or otherwise. But enough with the long introduction, Famewatchers, meet our imaginary future husband — the gorgeous Jake Choi.
Jake is Straight Outa Elmhurst in Queens, New York. But he his foray to the world of show business began in South Korea while studying at the Yonsei University on a basketball scholarship (he’s six feet tall, for those of you wondering).
Here are some things we learned about Jake from his A-List Magazine profile:
Tupac is his idol: “He was my first role model. He had a very strong personality. He respected women and made a song for his mom; on the flip side, he was very gangster, so that whole image was very appealing, especially when you’re a young Asian American kid growing up in Queens.”
On his tattoos: “The first one I got was my grandmother’s name, date of death, and date of birth. I told myself it’s very addicting to get ink, so I’ll stick to one a year. I have a whole bunch, but they mean a lot to me.”
On his first acting gig in Korea and choosing between basketball and acting: “It was difficult. I was just being myself, and people found me amusing, so I was very grateful. I learned the technicalities of being on camera and playing to an audience.
“There was some acting involved; it gave me a taste, and first I went back to basketball, but I kind of lost the passion. I was like, you know what, I like being on camera. I don’t have a backup plan. Acting is my plan A and my plan B and C, and I am running with my plan A until the wheels fall off.”
On the rewards of acting: “You get a chance to tell a story in your own way and you can give inspiration to aspiring actors and actresses; if you’re doing good, it can really inspire them to work harder. Even for yourself, it’s rewarding because you can express yourself in a way you probably can’t when you’re out in the real world.”
On being an Asian-American actor: “It’s easy to say, because I’m Asian American, it’s going to be close to impossible to book any big leading roles, but at the same time, you have less competition because you have less people pursuing the same career. I think when an Asian American actor does something big, it’s blown up to a higher scale, and that could be good.”
Jake has 25 acting credits to his name according to his IMDB profile. His most high profile acting gig, to date, is as a recurring character in the TVLand hit series, Younger. Here’s hoping that we’ll see more of him in the second season of the show which will air this coming January.
Jake Choi Underwear. Didn’t we tell you that he looks great in his Calvin Klein underwear? Check him out, ladies! Here’s more Jake Choi shirtless in his underwear photos. He sure likes them both CK briefs and boxer briefs. Looking hot selfie-ing in his underwear. [Sorry, we had to delete some of the pics.]
Please tell us we are not the only ones who think he looks like Ryan Higa. A Jake Choi wearing tank top shirt is just as hawt as a Jake Choi shirtless, no? Want more hot Asian Men?
Jake Choi Gay or Straight? He is straight (we think) but he does not mind playing a gay character. In fact, he stars as a gay fashion stylist in the indie movie, Front Cover. Here’s Jake with co-star James Chen.
Jake Choi Girlfriend? Is he dating anyone at the moment? Does he have a girlfriend? Or is he too busy with his singleness to look for a girl? At this point, we don’t have the info to answer said questions. But we told you he is our imaginary boyfriend so, in our mind, he is very much taken. Hands off our man!
2020 Update. We are updating this post to note that Jake’s got a gig on one of the big four TV networks in the US. Yay! He is a regular on the sitcom, Single Parents, where he plays the role of single dad Miggy Park. The show just finished its second season on ABC and keep your fingers crossed that it will be renewed for a third season. Here’s Miggy and his kid:
The second thing we’d like to note is that, in an interview with verygoodlight.com, Jake reveals that he now identifies as s*xually fluid and this is thanks to his experience shooting the indie LGBT movie we mentioned above, Front Cover, which allowed him to reflect on his own s*xuality.
Quote: “When I shot the movie I identified as straight – that’s how I was conditioned. Now, I identify as fluid. Back when people questioned if I was gay after the move, I was like, ‘no, no.’ But after I did ‘Front Cover,’ it made me think. A lot. Am I really living my truth? Am I really free? Am I still kinda, swimming upstream? Every day I would think. What does it mean when I’m talking to a guy and connect with him emotionally with intimate energy? Maybe it’s not just sexual but it could be. Maybe, shit, I’m attracted to everything. Maybe it’s more feminine or more androgynous. I realized yeah, I’m fluid. It’s not black or white. It’s grey.”
Well, props to you Jake for, to quote Oprah, living your truth!
