So have you picked the hotter Yune brother? Not yet! Okay, we hope these info trivia for both of them (courtesy of imdb.com) will help you decide. We begin with Karl’s trivia info:

  • Named his puppy Kato (after Bruce Lee’s character in the television show The Green Hornet (1966)).
  • While in school, Karl made ends meet by modeling and picking up campaigns from L’Oreal to Phat Farm clothing.
  • Was offered a five-year contract role on the daytime Soap, All My Children (1970). He passed and shortly after, landed his lead film roles.
  • Attended Columbia University in New York City before pursuing theatre full time.
  • Karl has done two films for DreamWorks Studios. In both films his characters were native Japanese.

And here’s some trivia info for Rick Yune:

  • Graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, class of 1994. Graduated from Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia.
  • He is of Korean descent, and prior to acting, was a Hedgefund Trader on Wall Street. During college worked as a Model and was the first Asian Model for Versace and Polo Sport. His campaigns were photographed by Bruce Weber.
  • Qualified for the Olympic Trials in Tae Kwon Do when he was 19.
  • His favorite action film is Léon: The Professional (1994).
  • Voted sexiest villain by People magazine’s sexiest men issue.
  • A former Golden Gloves boxer.

Hah! We think we’re giving the “Hotter Brother” title to Rick. Why you ask? Because he used to be a boxer! As you very well know, we have a thing for boxers here at Famewatcher.

Question: Does either brother have a girlfriend at this time? Rick is reportedly dating a girl named Eryn Hiett. Before Rick and Eryn became an item, he reportedly dated Lisa Ling, Nastassja Kinski, and Dania Ramirez according to whosdatedwho.com.

We can’t find any info on whether Karl has (or had) a girlfriend. If you are in the know, do tell in the comments. Hehe.
