China loves young, pretty-faced guys, and also Olympic medals. Enter Shaolin Sándor Liu.

The Hungarian-but-half-Chinese speed skater is a top-ranked athlete — his impressive resume boasts multiple Olympic golds. And yet all of this is brushed aside to make room for the real show — that is, the overwhelming beauty of his face.

We’ll give you a quick rundown of the reasons why Liu’s fandom is approaching near-Kris Wu mass.

1. The overwhelming beauty of his face

We might have mentioned this already. An unnamed female friend confirms: “His face is too distracting — we almost forgot he’s a professional athlete.”

2. His dreamy signature gesture

As if we didn’t already have a situation on our hands, Liu smoothes his tousled eyebrows and winks at the camera before every run. Here he is being hilariously parodied by the guy in the background, but still, can’t stop the sizzle.

3. He’s got a brother

And he’s almost as good-looking, and almost as good at short track speed skating.

4. He speaks Chinese with a Dongbei accent

The brothers’ Tianjin-born father moved the pair to Changchun for a year to train, in the northeastern quadrant of the Mainland. As a result, they still speak Chinese with distinct Dongbei accents, adding to their mysterious multicultural charm.

5. He’s good at skating

Also he’s good at skating. Liu, congratulations on your gold in the 5000 meter. May your beauty continue to crack the ice in our hearts.
