We recently covered Korean guys and their beauty standards in one of our videos. But have you ever wondered what would be considered good-looking for a guy in China? We hit the streets of Shanghai to find out.
The opinions expressed in this video are those of individual interviewees alone and do not reflect the views of ASIAN BOSS or the general Chinese population.
Special thanks to our Asian Boss team in Shanghai.

#BeautyStandards #ChineseMen #AsianBoss
hmm to me it seems that Chinese beauty standard for men is varied. Some say makeup others say no, some say pale skin others say golden, some say skinny others say chubby and pretty much everyone said medium to tall height.
I think China has the healthiest perception of male beauty because it's varied.
My goodness me, so it's normal for guys to wear make-up now? But hey, most of the products they mentioned are more like skincare products, not so much make-up itself. If your skin is dry, you don't just put cream to look better, but to save the poor tissue from breaking apart or whatever. The better look is more of a side effect, at least in my books. Anyway, as always, interesting material. I wouldn't be able to answer most of the questions about my country, because I just don't follow the trends and I don't think hunting for an ideal is misleading. A good guy doesn't have to have the right type of a face, rather should have a personality matching yours and vice versa. But... I guess that's yet another type of idealism. Oh well.
And why are there no longhaired guys anywhere! See, I lied. Looks still matter :P
Caucasians these days wanted to be tanned while asians want to be translucent. I tried it and there's too much to worry so I came back being just tan, though its not really my natural skin. I'm just tired of worrying of things that isn't even a big deal. There's a lot of black and brown billionaires over the world. Only ignorant people would think white-skinned people are the richest.
Everyone has a different perspective on looks but I think Korea is generally more good looking then other countries , because media influenced many young generations into thinking this way. However, I say there are also a lot of good looking people in China, but not as much in Japan.
It's funny to see Chinese people think middle parted hair style as Korean
Koreans in their 40~50s would be remembered of Hongkong stars as Andy Lau or Leslie Cheung
And Korean men might use perfume, but plastic surgery is a rare thing for a man
Asian Boss mistranslated, once again. She actually said, "Han race-traitor" and not "Korean celebrity." "Han race-traitors" are those Chinese traitors who worked with the Japanese during wartime. Why are they associated with centre-parting hairstyle? I don't know.
7:40 shanghainese tones
Me: ni hao. I'm so smart.
Chinese tones: that's what you think.
My ear: no i heard' knee how'
all 5 Chinese tones: did you really though
My germanic, gaelic, tense-based language ears : Knea hoaw
All 8 Hmong tones: did you really though?
Me: oh ok. Nvr mind lol brb gunna go butcher my own mutha tongue.
Feminine men's aesthetic origin in East Asia, the earliest record is that some bisexual emperor servants in ancient China, serving aristocratic women - male prostitutes. History records that they look like women.
It's not the standard aesthetics of the masses. In ancient times, it was despised.
Feminization revived in Japan, USA ruled Japan after World War II, and Japanese companies owned by the United States conspired to promote the feminization of men, weakening Japan's masculinist revolution. Korea imitated Japanese idols in the 1990s. Now China has made more programs for feminized men. Now the market for feminized men is popular. The main consumption is women.
Feminization is not the aesthetic appreciation of Chinese people. Feminized men have been sprayed by Chinese netizens all the time.
For example, Cai Xukun, who imitated the kpop style, was criticized by the Chinese media and netizens for his deformed aesthetics.
Mainly a feminine man - running to the sports circle to endorse, Chinese men hate female artillery.
Now it's a feminist society. Women like this kind of feminine boy.
That's why feminized men are popular, because they are the favorite servants of ancient noble women.
The one guy was spot on, the dude looks feminine. Men should have broad, heavy and strong facial features. There are plenty of women who like feminine men, everyone has a different taste. Does not change the fact that he is feminine looking.
Can Asian boss do an interview with sumo wrestlers? Just to get a hint on how they live their lives, what they eat and how they train their bodies
Their lives seem so interesting to me
You would think of how big a sumo wrestler is warrior wise, then also have such a gentle nature about them
Plus how sumo wrestlers are like always appreciated in there culture
Cause here in America, big guys like that are so insulted for being just...big, which I'm trying to wrap my head around, like maybe help the big guys here in America to be sumo wrestlers or warriors like that to avoid being judged from their weight, its like help a guy out
in my neighborhood, there is hundreds of Chinese illegal immigrants residing in an apartment, some old men are sitting on the bench with being topless all days, they throw trash away anywhere without a proper recycling which is strictly regulated in the city. even at nighttime, they make a noise and smell something stinky
Hello Asian Boss !!!
Can you plz cover up the recent situation in India "the world's largest democracy" cause recently the result of people's choices during the election process has come out, so how do they feel about it. Are the citizens happy with their new prime minister ?
The stereotypes Chinese have about Korean guys just makes me laugh so hard. Gentleman-like quality? Seriously? That is the last thing you would find here in the whole peninsula. Do they really think all those dazzling Korean male celebs represent majority of Korean population? They are literally top 0.1% of all the Korean guys appearance-wise, which would be the same all around the globe I believe. And their behavioral pattern is just confined to TV shows or movies where the reality is not represented properly.
An analysis of representative literature concerning the widely recognized ineffective learning of "place-value" by American children arguably also demonstrates a widespread lack of understanding of the concept of place-value among elementary school arithmetic teachers and among researchers themselves. Just being able to use place-value to write numbers and perform calculations, and to describe the process is not sufficient understanding to be able to teach it to children in the most complete and efficient manner.
A conceptual analysis and explication of the concept of "place-value" points to a more effective method of teaching it. However, effectively teaching "place-value" (or any conceptual or logical subject) requires more than the mechanical application of a different method, different content, or the introduction of a different kind of "manipulative". First, it is necessary to distinguish among mathematical 1) conventions, 2) algorithmic manipulations, and 3) logical/conceptual relationships, and then it is necessary to understand each of these requires different methods for effective teaching. And it is necessary to understand those different methods. Place-value involves all three mathematical elements.
Practice versus Understanding.
Almost everyone who has had difficulty with introductory algebra has had an algebra teacher say to them "Just work more problems, and it will become clear to you. You are just not working enough problems." And, of course, when you cant work any problems, it is difficult to work many of them. Meeting the complaint "I cant do any of these" with the response "Then do them all" seems absurd, when it is a matter of conceptual understanding. It is not absurd when it is simply a matter of practicing something one can do correctly, but just not as adroitly, smoothly, quickly, or automatically as more practice would allow. Hence, athletes practice various skills to make them become more automatic and reflexive; students practice reciting a poem until they can do it smoothly; and musicians practice a piece until they can play it with little effort or error. And practicing something one cannot do very well is not absurd where practice will allow for self-correction. Hence, a tennis player may be able to work out a faulty stroke himself by analyzing his own form to find flawed technique or by trying different things until he arrives at something that seems right, which he then practices. But practicing something that one cannot even begin to do or understand, and that trial and error does not improve, is not going to lead to perfection or --as in the case of certain conceptual aspects of algebra-- any understanding at all.
