There are some famous Asian stars from Canada who are not quite famous in Canada. For the fans in Canada, do you know them?

1. Wanting Qu

Wanting Qu is a Chinese-born Canadian transplant best-known to Vancouverites as the new squeeze of Mayor Gregor Robertson. In Asia, though, the singer-songwriter has topped charts in Malaysia and gone triple-platinum in China.

You probably recognize her voice from Divorce Lawyer's theme song. Here is the English verison:

Another beautiful song from her is "Drenched"

2. Henry Lau

Toronto’s Henry Lau was merely a promising Grade 12 violin player when a talent scout pegged him to become a member of Korean boy band Super Junior-M. He now boasts 2.4 million Twitter followers, chart-topping hits in both Mandarin and Korean, and a growing list of Asian TV credits.

3. Godfrey Gao

The 6’4” Mr. Gao had only picked up a few mediocre gigs in Canada, such as being a “living mannequin” at a Richmond shopping mall, but he had two secret weapons playing to his advantage: He already spoke the language, and he carried the noticeable exoticism of an overseas childhood. It was a good move. Louis Vuitton hired Mr. Gao as their first-ever Asian model in 2011, effectively making him the world’s first Asian supermodel.

The 30 year old is now ubiquitous across Asia: Billboards, bus ads, Chinese TV dramas such as The Queen of SOP,  and upcoming Chinese movie Wedding Bible, working with Ahn Jae-hyun and Yoo In-Na. He has had roles in Hollywood productions like the movie Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, but he is still more widely known abroad.

National Post comments, "“Being Canadian is much more of a subtle influence in the success of Canadian performers abroad, usually not something that is front and centre."
