Everyone's favorite bronzed judoka turns 34 years sexy today.
Leave your birthday wishes for Akiyama in the comments.
(The two episodes of Korean variety show Family Outing on which Akiyama guested are really entertaining and definitely recommended if you're in search of some goofy, wholesome, mindless viewing. The first part of the first ep is above - with great fan-made English subtitles - and you can find the rest by following the link to YouTube. Basically, each week a new guest goes off with the "family" - actually an ensemble of Korean celebrities - and is made to compete, play games and share in chores with the other family members. Among other things, Akiyama takes on all eight family members in a handicap match, inflicts severe pain on several of the guys with brutal single-finger forehead flicks, and is afraid of worms.)
