The internet will no doubt be buzzing at the news today that Olympic
Diver and posterboy of British sport Tom Daley has revealed that he's
currently in a gay relationship.
And having recently told his family of the news his Mother fully supports
his decision to come out, although apparently some members of his family
were not so supportive and advised him to keep quiet about it.
It seems that our Tom met his new gay friend last Spring and is over the
moon about him and has said that he couldn't be happier.
Tom also revealed in an emotional video released today that having
been recently misquoted in the press was what sparked off his frustration
and anger which forced him to come out.
Tom also said, and some might find it odd, that he still fancies girls.
But some critics have said that he may have just said this for damage
limitation purposes. It does seem to be the British way.
Personally I dont believe it will hurt his career or lose him any sponsors.
He's got quite a bit of tv exposure coming up next year with a new series
of 'Splash' on ITV as well as a travel documentary that Tom filmed last Summer.
And if you've ever seen Tom in those candid family tv documentaries like
'Tom Daley... The Diver and His Dad' plus another one where we sadly
saw the passing of his Dad, a victim of cancer, then you'll know that Tom
is an extremely likeable guy, and there's not a nasty bone in his body.
Ben Summerskill from Stonewall said today that Tom's decision to come
out about his gay relationship was a transformation moment.
Im sure that Tom will become a good gay role model for other young
people. And one can only hope that some elements of the British media,
often referred to as the gutter press, dont hound Tom in the search for
images and details of Tom's mystery guy. We only know that who ever
he is then he's one lucky guy.
Below is the video of Tom revealing to us about his new relationship.

This coming weekend sees Japanese skater Yuzuru Hanyu from Sendai return to his home country to perform at the ISU Season Finals in Fukuoka.
The event is the culmination of several weeks of events around the world.
And the skaters that achieved the most points plus a top finish in those
competitions over the last few weeks automatically qualify for a place
in this weekends finals in Japan.
Interestingly of the six top skaters that qualified, five of them are Asian
which indicates how skaters from Asian countries are now dominating
the sport. And those 6 skaters going are....
PATRICK CHAN, YUZURU HANYU, HAN YAN, NOBUNARI ODA,
TATSUKI MACHIDA AND MAXIM KOVTUN.
It seems that popular Japanese skater Daisuki Takahashi has pulled out
at the last minute due to a knee injury. And so his replacement place will
be taken up by Nobunari Oda.
Sadly Javier Fernandez from the Brian Orser training camp where Yuzuru
also trains, will not be going to Japan as he didn't qualify for the event and
has generally been having a poor season even though he may have lit up a
few arenas with his Gala performances. So Coach Brian Orser is pinning his
hopes on our little Prince from Sendai, Yuzuru Hanyu.
Of course the outcome of the event is fairly predictable in that we expect
Patrick Chan to win outright as he does seem to be so far ahead of the rest
of the competition. So it'll be interesting to see the fight for second place.
Some skating sports writers are saying that Yuzuru is closing that gap with
Patrick Chan. Yet former skating champion Plushenko doesn't feel that it's
Yuzuru's time just yet.
Interestingly when I first started posting about Yuzuru a couple of years
ago there was only a handful of sites and tumblrs dedicated to him. Now
they're all over the place. And amazingly Japanese visitors to this blog
cant get enough of Yuzuru. I dont think they're so much interested in all
the other pretty pictures I post up. It seems they only have eyes for Yuzu.
Below are some interesting images from several sites and tumblrs including
some of these amazing top pictures by photographer Elina Paasonen.

At the bottom of this post is a truly gorgeous video of Yuzuru. And put
together really well by FUNIFUNI1. It's certainly one of the best put
together ones I've seen in a while and shows Yuzuru at his best. With
clips from some of his performances and a few moments with his coach
There's even a funny awkward bit where Yuzu is excercising his hips and
buttocks during some warm up floor excercises while Brian Orser tries hard
not to watch.
And I think the music goes well with the compilations. Well done the
Now you just know that this image above of Yuzuru's amazing rear is
going to create quite a bit of interest, It was captured once again by
photographer Elina Paasonen. And a beautiful image it is of Yuzu's
amazing body. Of course he's wearing that popular black skin tight
outfit that he always wears during his practice sessions.

Every K-pop outfit usually has one if not two members that really stand
out, the ones that get the most attention. And in the case of k-pop group
BEAST, then you would imagine that a lot of that attention would be
focused on 23 year old Lee Ki kwang. Not only is he facially spectacular
he's also quite spectacular physically and is prone to regularly showing
off those famous abs.
You do wonder if perhaps he played a part in starting the abs craze, which
in the last couple of years has really taken off with more and more K-pop
groups beefing up to gain more popularity and attention.
And looking over all the amazing images of Lee Ki kwang, it was this top
image above that I was drawn to. It's certainly one of his best. It also
featured on a blog that compiled a list of, wait for it, the top luscious lips
of k-pop boys. It seems that Lee Ki kwang came second, losing out to Niel
from TEENTOP, and probably quite desevedly so.
Even western women dont have lips as plump as Niel's, unless of course
they go and get them artificially enhanced. That list and page can be seen
in the link below. It comes from a blog called K-pop My Cherry!
Below is a video of Lee Ki kwang alongside Beast band member Doojoon
in a short video that accompanies a recent editorial for Nylon Korean
Magazine December issue.
It's that amazingly beautiful Norwegian beauty Niclas Nilsson from Request Models.
And looking very glamorous indeed. He was snapped backstage by photographer
Steven Pan during last Summer's launch of J W Anderson's Versus Versace Show
in New York.
This and other backstage images were used as part of an editorial for THE LAST MAGAZINE.

Below is a rather eye catching gif from the pages of Request Model's tumblr.
The original picture is from a series of images taken by photographer Ira Chernova
who seems to favour the monochrome look.

Here's a couple of stunning images of Niclas captured by photographer Larry Schwarz.
It seems that many a well known model has been lensed by this amazing photographer,
models like Ash Stymest, Cole Mohr and Nicola Wincenc, to name a few. And they plus
many others feature on his tumblr ZOOM SCHWARZ which is nothing short of being a
picture palace. More can be seen in the link below.

It's that amazing teen ballet sensation Francisco Serrano from The
Sarasota Cuban Ballet School. And looking rather spectacular in the
above image by dance and ballet photographer Richard Calmes.
Below is a video of Francisco alongside Gabrielle Stilo from earlier
on this year performing the Pas de Deux from 'Diana and Acteon' at The
International Ballet Festival in Miami. Although it does look like the
dance performance and it's story looks like a more genteel version
compared to the somewhat far fetched original myth and story.
Apparently Francisco has won a scholarship to The Royal Ballet School
London. And this Christmas he'll be performing in that seasonal favourite
The Nutcracker in Bradenton.
The up and coming performance of The Nutcracker by The Sarasota Cuban
Ballet School will also feature Gabrielle Stilo (above) and will be held at
The Neel Performing Arts Centre in Bradenton on Dec 21st.

I recently saw an image of these two Asian lovebirds on Milkboys and they
certainly seemed to spark up a bit of a debate. Some readers were
wondering exactly who they were and if their affection towards each other
was genuine or not.
So I looked them up believing that one of them was an actor I had seen in
a Korean film. But he wasn't. But it did somehow lead me to lots of images
as well as social network sites belonging to them. So their names are Kenny
and Quintus and they seem very much in love with each other. Quintus is
the taller of the two and they like nothing better than to share their love
around the world.
Below are some images of our two cute lovebirds plus some links to
their picture galleries.

I love this picture above. Doesn't it just say 'I'll always love you no
matter what happens.' But then love is unpredictable.
Korean beauty Janghyeon is a stand out model on the pages of online
Korean fashions Aboki. He seems to look good in practically all of the
modelled outfits. And not surprisingly this has made him into a very
popular ulzzang, a common term that Koreans like to use, meaning
Even wearing glasses and he still looks amazing, although I'm obviously
not so keen on his orangey brown died hair, something many Asians
seem keen to do.
If you click on Janghyeon's profile picture on the pages of Aboki then
that will take you to all the pages that he features on, although on those
first few more up to date pages he is sporting that lighter hair colour
look. This would indicate that he has currently abandoned his natural
dark hair look.
Are Asian guys trying to westernize themselves? I notice that frontman
and pin-up from K-Pop outfit Shinee, Kim Jonghyun is currently sporting
a truly horrendous bob of blond hair, yet his fans dont seem to mind. It
seems to be something all Korean pin-up boys go through. Even
G-Dragon tried it for a while until he got fed up of it.
I wonder if the equivalent for such a desired change would be if
Western boys decided to visit plastic surgeons and asked to have
oriental eyes. Perhaps not.
