2016 year in review: Photo of Changi Airport officer goes viral

From Pakistan to Korea and Singapore, the Internet aided the discovery of serveral showstoppers this year.

If you still recall, the 'yan dao' cop, whose real name is Ryan Koh, featured on anti-theft standees outside retail malls in Singapore took himself off the market by getting married in April. But not to worry, ooglers have now shifted their focus to a young auxiliary police officer at Changi Airport. Our pick for eye candy of the year, Lee Minwei, stunned local netizens when a photo of him was posted on social media.

But these were not the only good-lookers who took the Internet by storm in 2016. An 18-year-old Pakistani tea seller is now a model after his blue eyes, dark hair and defined jaw caught the attention of a photographer who then uploaded his picture online. And while you might like to forget the Descendants of the Sun craze which swept across Asia earlier this year, you can't deny the charm of its star Song Joong-ki. The heart-throb not only melted hearts with his portrayal of a suave captain in South Korea's elite special forces, he also won hearts when he donated 20 million won (S$24,600) to a group dedicated to helping World War II sex slave victims in October.
