  1. Vikas “Vicky” Uppal (one of India’s tallest men) is also cool, sexy-faced, and quite handsome though dark-skinned. I wish he, Chad Allen (just when he was still a teenager actor in the ’80’s: from USA), Jerry Yan (Remember F4 and Meteor Garden?), and Bae Yong Joon (Korea) were in this list too. 🙁
