Shohei Ohtani only addresses Tyler Wade as 'Ikemen' because everyone in Japan hilariously thinks he's hot

Imagine waking up one day just doing your job. It’s a regular day for you. Until one of your co-workers tells you that, apparently, everyone from their home country thinks you’re pretty cute.

Actually, no. Pretty cute is an understatement here. Imagine finding out that everyone back home refers to you as “hot guy.”

That’s wild, right? But, apparently, it’s a reality for Angels’ second baseman Tyler Wade.

The Angels are famous over in Japan because of Shohei Ohtani. Sports Illustrated’s Stephanie Apstein wrote a brilliant profile on Ohtani and, in it, she reveals that Ohtani’s shine actually rubs off quite a bit on the rest of his Angels teammates, too.

For Wade, in particular, that seems like a pretty great thing. And maybe a bit of an ego trip.

Here’s why: He’s referred to as “Ikemen” over in Japan. What does that mean? Hot guy. Yes. Seriously. Apstein has more.

“Many Angels are famous in Japan because they keep showing up in photos of Ohtani; he recently informed Wade that the second baseman has many admirers abroad, and he now only addresses him as “ikemen,” which means ‘hot guy.’,”

That’s hilarious. I cannot imagine how that goes over in Wade’s head. A whole country thinking you’re cute? Nah. Don’t let that happen to me. Y’all couldn’t tell me nothing after I find that out.

The internet thought this was hilarious.

This is just the best. Being Shohei Ohtani’s teammate seems pretty awesome, man.
