Hayden Kho, Jr. (born May 20, 1980, in Manila, Philippines), is a Chinese-Filipino celebrity cosmetic doctor, businessman, actor and model based in Manila, Philippines.

Personal life and career[edit]

At the age of 16, Kho started his career in ramp modelling while pursuing a degree in medical technology. This stint brought him to countries like New York, Singapore, Japan, and Korea. Following the footsteps of his father, Hayden Kho, Sr, he earned his degree in medicine and surgery from the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas (Manila). He completed his internship at the Makati Medical Center where he held the position of President of the Medical Interns. Kho also completed his training in anti-aging medicine through the European Anti-Aging Medicine Society (Paris). In Manila, Kho practiced specific cosmetic dermatology and surgery procedures under the organisation of the Belo Medical Group.

In 2007, Kho started appearing on Philippine National Television as an actor. His career in show business went to a complete halt when it was reported that Kho had tried to commit suicide in December 2008. In 2009, sex videos of himself with other local and foreign celebrities were distributed over the internet without his knowledge and consent. Because of this Kho was brought to a senate hearing and was tried publicly on national television.[1] This saga lasted for years and resulted to criminal and civil cases filed against Kho by one of the involved parties, Katrina Halili.[2] CNN tagged this controversy the No.1 most controversial sex scandal in Asia.[3] The Philippine Board of Medicine revoked Kho's license to practice medicine and cited unethical behaviour as the basis for his expulsion from the medical society.[4] In December of the same year, Kho tried to commit suicide for the second time.

In 2011, Kho launched his own eponymous brand of fragrances called, "HAYDEN".[5] He was tapped as the endorser of the Filipino fashion brand MALDITA MAN [6] and also by the cosmetic giant Ever Bilena, Inc. He also hosted the TV talk show "Paparazzi",[7] which was aired on TV5. Kho was also director of the skin care distribution brand ZO Skin Health in the Philippines.[8]

In 2013, Kho met the famed Christian philosopher and apologist Ravi Zacharias in a serendipitous event hosted by some leaders of the Christ Commission Fellowship (CCF) in Manila. Kho became a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and his teachings.[9] He is being mentored by Zacharias and by the CCF movement founder, Pastor Peter Tan-Chi.[10]

In 2014, Kho went to the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics at the Oxford University to study Christian apologetics, where he met and was tutored by Christian sociologist and author Os Guinness; scientist, mathematician, and philosopher John Lennox; theologian and author Alister McGrath; and anti-Islam polemicist Jay Smith, among others.[11]

While Kho was studying in Oxford, the Professional Regulation Commission reinstated his medical license.[12] The same year, all cases against Kho were dismissed.[13] Kho and Halili reconciled thereafter. Kho attributes all these reconciliations and restorations to his faith in Jesus Christ.

Kho has resumed his medical practice at the Sexy Solutions clinics. He owns and runs a real estate website called ZoneListing, Inc.[14] He is also invested in various software companies that create apps such as Pocket Market and Paylance.[15]
