Job: Sexy server of sushi and musical stylings at Miyagi's
Go-to Pickup Line: "How would your boyfriend react to me talking to you?"
One glance at Luke and you might think "bad boy," but the moment he opens his mouth, you'll see he's a little shy and entirely authentic. Born in South Korea and raised in the U.S., Luke is a tatted-up man of many talents. Although his day job is serving patrons at Miyagi's in NoDa, his passion is music. He's a drummer for the local electronic dance band Public Radio; plays guitar for a football/machismo parody band named Leatherheads; and works behind the scenes in tour management for other local artists. "I consider myself approachable — not sexy," he says. Although happily married now, Luke says his favorite place to pick up women in his single days was the bank. "I used to go to one branch in the University area all the time and ask the girls to coffee."
Truth or Dare?
What is the most shameful thing you have ever done on a date or in a relationship?
I once broke up with a girl over the phone after watching Serendipity, the movie, and realizing that I was still in love with my ex-girlfriend. We had been talking marriage, and I had a ring in hand, but I knew it wasn't right. I ended it and returned the ring.
