We might be right in the midst of a Mercury retrograde but fret not, celebrating these hot male celebs birthdays in November might (no guarantees here) give us the necessary boost in luck and fortune. Here are the male celebrities celebrating their birthdays this month, including Kris Wu and Park Chanyeol.
With nicknames such as “King of Bollywood” and “King Khan”, the 55-year-old dashing actor has stolen our hearts since his Bollywood debut in 1992 with Deewana and has since had a successful career spanning over 80 films. Khan is also a philanthropist and co-owns two sports league team, with one in India and the other in the Caribbean.
Off-screen, Khan is happily married producer-interior designer Gauri Chibber. The two have been married since 1991 and had co-founded the film production and distribution company Red Chillies Entertainment in 2002. The couple has two sons and one daughter.
Kris Wu has been going places. Apart from a successful solo career and multiple box office movie hits under his belt, he has also made his Hollywood debut, attended the Grammys, walked the runway for London Fashion Week… the list goes on. And Wu’s rise doesn’t seem to be waning anytime soon. Next year, you can catch Wu in period drama The Golden Hairpin, starring alongside Yang Zi.
Lee Dong-wook’s entry into showbiz began after he had won the top prize for a modelling contest back in 1999. However, it wasn’t until 2005 with My Girl that Lee became a household name. The success of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016-17), where he had acted alongside Gong Yoo, Kim Go-eun and Yoo In-na, further cemented his superstardom.
He later reunited with co-star Yoo in Touch Your Heart (2019), pleasing fans who loved their chemistry. And for those who are missing his statuesque features, you can catch him as a male gumiho (a mythical nine-tailed fox) in Tale of the Nine Tailed opposite Jo Bo Ah now.
Romantically, Lee was previously linked with Bae Suzy, but the two broke up after four months of dating.
It goes without saying that many us grew up watching shows starring Li Nanxing, ranging from classics such The Unbeatables trilogy, On The Fringe (2011) to most recently, My Teacher Is A Thug (2017). Turning 56, Li’s illustrious career isn’t the only reason why we love him so much. Li isn’t afraid to share about personal failures in his own life and how he had overcome them, which included drinking and gambling addictions and a business venture failure that left him debt-ridden.
Off-screen, Li was married to former actress Yang Libing for over a decade and later divorced in 2004. The King of Caldecott Hill also founded his own artist management company, LNX Global, with names like Julie Tan and Constance Song under its portfolio.

A name that needs no introduction, Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most prolific and respected actors of our generation. He first stole our hearts with his cheeky good looks and blue eyes in Titanic (1997) alongside Kate Winslet (there was space on the floating door!) while his extensive body of work range from Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) to The Revenant (2015), the last of which finally earned him the coveted Oscars award. Beyond acting, DiCaprio is also known for his extensive work in environmental activism with an eponymous non-profit foundation under his belt.
In his love life, DiCaprio has a penchant for models, having dated notable figures such as Gisele Bundchen and Bar Rafaeli. He is currently dating 23-year-old Argentine-American model Camila Morrone.
Most of us would probably be familiar with Ryan Gosling’s roles in acclaimed movies such as The Notebook (2004), Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011) and La La Land (2016), but did you know his acting career started with Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club? In fact, his castmates on the children’s show were Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Turning 40 this year, Gosling is slated to return to our screens with multiple movies with Netflix’s The Gray Man opposite Chris Evans and as Wolfman in a remake of the 1941 horror film The Wolf Man.
Outside of acting, Gosling with his dreamy eyes has his own indie rock band Dead Man’s Bones since 2007 and is happily married to Eva Mendes when they met on the set of The Place Beyond The Pines (2012). They have two daughters together.
Avid fans of Chinese television and movies will definitely have caught a production with Huang Xiaoming starring in it. Since shooting to fame in TV series The Prince of Han Dynasty (2001/3/5), the suave actor has also acted in The Return of the Condor Heroes (2006), Shanghai Bund (2007) and films such as American Dreams in China (2013) and Forever Young (2018). This year, you can catch him on Winter Begonia and Game Changer on the small screen.
Huang is married to Chinese star Angelababy and had their headlining wedding in 2015 at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre that saw over 600 guests including A-list celebs.
Beyond his role as rapper and singer in K-pop group EXO, Park Chanyeol has also acted in various movies and dramas, including So I Married an Anti-fan (2016), Secret Queen Makers (2018) and Memories of the Alhambra (2018) alongside Hyun Bin and Park Shin-hye.
