Kevin Kreider was born in South Korea and adopted by an American family from Philadelphia. As a child, Kevin was bullied for his Asian heritage and never felt white enough, and never Asian enough for both worlds that means so much to him but never felt like he belonged.  He redefined himself from an awkward, bullied Asian kid to a successful international fitness model, first shirtless greeter at Abercrombie & Fitch on Fifth ave, to a reality TV star with his new Netflix show Bling Empire which premiered in Netflix’s top 10 most-watched shows of 2021.  Kevin’s personal quest to change America’s standard of male beauty is just the beginning.
