Photos of a Burmese Chinese actor who dressed up as a monk have gone viral on Asian social media.
Paing Takhon, 24, who stands at about 5 feet 10 inches, has acted for various movies and a documentary drama series in Myanmar.
He was listed as one of the Top 10 Actors of 2019 by the Myanmar Times.
Earlier this week, Takhon, who started his career as a runway model, shared photos of himself dressed as a monk on Instagram.
It did not take long before the photos spread like wildfire, with many users expressing awe at the sight of a “hot” monk.
In addition to dressing like a monk, Takhon actually lived like a monk for 10 days.
“Spent my New Year 2021 by being a monk for 10 days and I felt so peaceful and knew myself more,” the 24-year-old captioned his post.

Needless to say, fans have been swooning over his appearance.
“I can’t even take you seriously. If the monks at my temple were that handsome, I’m afraid I would never go to the temple again in fear that I would sin,” one wrote.
Another commented, “Divine handsomeness.”
Aside from acting and modeling, Paing also happens to be a singer.
In 2017, he released a full solo album called “Chit Thu” (Lover) and donated all of his earnings to children from Ananda Metta orphan school.
