Taiwan's Defence Minister Feng Shih-kuan in a photo taken when he was an air force pilot in his 30s. Mr Feng, 72, has made headlines in Taiwan this week for his tongue-in-cheek claim that he was more good-looking than movie stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Song Joong Ki in his younger days. The minister was speaking at a parliamentary session on Monday regarding the defence ministry's plans to produce a military-themed idol drama in the vein of South Korean hit Descendants Of The Sun, in which Song starred. Asked by a legislator whether he was more handsome than Takeshi Kaneshiro - the Japanese-Taiwanese actor who starred in a Taiwanese military movie in the 1990s - in his youth, Mr Feng answered without skipping a beat: "He wasn't as good-looking as me, of course." What about Song, asked a legislator. Mr Feng's reply? "Still not as handsome."
