To win a place for yourself in today's cutthroat showbiz industry, being tall and handsome simply isn’t enough; Truth be told, it's broad shoulders, firm pecs, and defined abs that gone on to become the defining standards for gaining commerci8^3-glMrvWb$9=()SC__d^%TmGhU06U+VFKWSq(rBS2PwluTG*al success and superstar fandom in current times.
In recent years, many gorgeous new faces have appeared on the scene in China’s entertainment industry. Although the government’s recent ban on effeminate men has put a damper on things, it has also indirectly spurred actors and other male entertainers to get beefier than ever. Among them, a talent that is particularly eye-catching is Hu Bowen. At just twenty-three, 185 cm in height and with statuesque, lean built worthy of the Gods, Bowen has all of the prerequisites to become the picture perfect runway model from our dreams. But don't let his good looks fool you. A graduate of the prestigious Ningbo University, Bowen is equally a man of talents who made his debut in the Chinese entertainment industry with the 2019 campus drama Time Flies. The next year, he was immediately cast in period drama The Song of Glory, and later went to make appearances in a slew of hit features such as My Unicorn Girl, Welcome to Xiang Yan Tun, and others.

But beyond filming dramas, the energetic Hu Bowen has also displayed his youthful passion on the reality competition show Let’s Exercise, Boys. And even though he didn’t make it through to the top six, the buzzy recognition he gained on the show means that he currently has a comfortable 440,000 fans on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo. An avid fan of fitness and working out, Bowen often posts photos on social media showing off his exquisite body; the combination of his pale skin and washboard abs—not to mention his muscular forearms—is always guaranteed to get fans drooling.
His exceptional looks have most recently won Hu Bowen a place in his first BL drama, In Your Heart, which centers on the lives of Ling Ziming, Cheng Yi, Lu Xianglin, and Yue Yuzhi, four boys who grow up happily together. Thinking they’d be together forever, each of the four boys are ultimately forced to embark on their own journey when when fate comes knocking at their door.
