Name: Karen Han

Occupation: Erhu (Chinese two-stringed violin) Virtuoso

Hails from: Los Angeles

Why She’s A Babe: Flawless Skin. Elegant Lines. A killer musical talent. And then some.

It was hard to take our eyes off of Han during the broadcast of the Oscars, in which her husband Paul N.J. Ottosson won two consecutive awards for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing on The Hurt Locker. Now, winning is damn near everything to Asians, but when someone other than ourselves does the winning, it can be another story. In fact, one of the most of telling moments in any of our lives is watching someone else–particularly our partners–win.

See video of the acceptance speech:

BABEWATCH: Dichen Lachman

Dollhouse's Dichen Lachman

Dichen Lachman of 'Dollhouse'

Dollhouse is Joss Whedon’s not-very-good show about a service that applies neural wipes to people’s minds in order to implant them with made-to-order personalities. It’s currently (quietly) entering into a second season on Fox, and the production is pretty rough–it’s no Buffy–but it’s worth tuning in to for a couple of reasons: the most important being the beautiful Dichen Lachman.

Lachman plays Sierra, a tough and fiery free spirit who actually manages to evoke a character complexity in the show, despite the overall cardboard construction. She’s also all kinds of wonderful to look at, with her sunny hair and high cheekbones and latte skin and searching eyes. Add an Aussie accent and she’s so freakin’ fantastic, we can see why she so naturally strolls through this dark world of sci-fi fantasy, as if somehow she belongs there.

10 Things You Need To Know About Ming-Na

October 6th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

1) Ming-Na stars in the Syfy network’s new show Stargate Universe, the third TV series in the Stargate franchise.

2) According to our pal Joz at 8 Asians, Ming-Na will play the first lesbian Asian American TV series regular EVAR on the show.

3) Her character is Camille Wray, a “strategically savy (sic) member of the International Oversight Committee (IOA) and the highest ranking one stranded aboard the Destiny.” This is code for “hot lesbian not to be fucked with.”

4) Ming-Na will be engaging in some serious girl-on-girl action with 24‘s Reiko Aylesworth, who plays Wray’s Earthbound life-partner.

5) IRL, Ming-Na is a Steelers fan. Which means Diana would like to make out with her, too.

6) She has been professionally credited as “Ming-Na Wen,” “Ming Wen” and “Ming-Na.”

7) Ming-Na is 45 years old.

8) She has the skin of cherubs after a diamond facial.

9) She may have been the real-life inspiration for Benjamin Button.

10) We would hate on her for looking so damn good, but we’d really like to get the name of her derm.

Lucy, Lius the Opera Gloves

January 9th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Dearest Lucy Liu,

I’m pretty sure that Patricia Field is just fucking with you. I know you are the focal point of the new, very fash-ant-garde TV show Cashmere Mafia now, which means that you have to assume fashism icon status and gallivant around town wearing wild (ugly) shit and telling reporters in knowledgeable tones: “Oh god, I love young and independent designers. Zac Poseur really just knows a woman’s body.”

But here’s the lowdown, and this is hard for me because I truly think you’re lovely and talented (you are so pretty, so pretty. My dog and her dad rode in an elevator with you two months ago and raved about your skin. This is true!): I really, truly-ooly don’t believe Mafia is going to take off. This show will be a bigger bomb than your lesbian vampire movie. I do think Field has lost her touch–and if she does in fact still have a touch, she’s fingering New Line’s Sex and the City movie, not your little “tv show.”

I’m sorry. Saying such things is hard for me. But to be frank, I really just don’t want you toting ugly gold bags while wearing black opera gloves anymore. You don’t deserve it and we will both regret it. I already do.

hugs and kisses,
