Often known as "gods of war," they are invincible on the battlefields and fight to the last breath for their nation and fellow soldiers. Nevertheless, these brave warriors only give their heart to their one-and-only true love. Where can you find these men? In these outstanding Asian historical romances.

1. Prince of Lan Ling - This drama fuses real history with fictional characters to give us a vibrant romantic adventure about a warrior prince and his one true love, a beautiful priestess, during a time of upheaval when their nation is ruled by a tyrant.

The Prince of Lan Ling is a real historical figure during China's Northern Qi dynasty. Documented as one of the three most handsome men in ancient China, he was considered so "beautiful" that he had to wear a gruesome mask during battles. Don't you think the leading star, Feng Shao Feng, perfectly captures the look?
