AKIYAMA A/K/A CHOO SUNG-HOON + GLOCKS + LEATHER = KOREAN DRAMA GOLD.

Yoshihiro Akiyama (秋山 成勲) a/k/a Choo Sung-hoon (추성훈).  Yes, we question his excessive tanning and hair style choice.  But, that's OK,  because he's otherwise completely rad.  Although he's more or less a well-rounded fighter in MMA, his background is pure grappling.  The dude's an accomplished judo player with a number international and national titles to his name.  DSTRYR/sg approves.

What you might not know is that, Akiyama, while Japanese in nationality, is ethnically Korean (what's called zainichi in Japan).  And, that's a huge distinction, particularly when it comes his megastar status in South Korea (not in North though, because I don't think they get good cable TV there).  He's been an integral part of the UFC's plan for success in Korea.

My point?  Well, it's really simple.  Just watch the video below featuring Akiyama delivering many ass kickings and also shooting a bunch of villains in new Korean drama that aired a few nights ago.  My sources* tell me this got some very strong ratings.  But, that's no surprise to us. War 추성훈.


* thanks PYA.
