Captivating cutie Kalina Ryu is regarded by many adult film fans and critics alike as the best Asian gonzo performer in the industry. Over the past few years Kalina has amassed a vast global fan base and numerous nominations at the AVN and XBIZ Awards due to her sizzling Naked.com live cam shows and her scene-stealing moments in countless Evil Angel/Jonni Darkko Productions DVDs. Watch this space!
So where did it all begin? Born in North Carolina, Kalina has mixed Korean and Welsh heritage. Kalina was an Air Force brat so her family moved around a lot when she was younger. As such, Kalina grew up mostly in Florida in Miami, Okinawa and Key West. Kalina had a strict Christian upbringing and she has conveyed in her Gamelink interview with Gram Ponante that;
“I had a strict Christian upbringing. My mom was very strict, but my dad kept Playboys in his car. I never thought there was anything wrong with it. In general I was very sheltered but when I was 16 and could drive — and think for myself — the pendulum just swung the other way… I love my parents, and my parents love me, and I am 29…some of my friends from school know, and some girls from home were mean. Then there’s church people trying to get me to come back…I’m red, white, and blue all day long, but I will let you know I’m Korean. It’s a very big part of me. I’ll tell you that if I weren’t Asian I wouldn’t get work in porn!”.
During her high school years Kalina played soccer, softball and was part of her school swimming team whilst studying for her International Baccalaureate (IB). After graduating from high school Kalina attended college where she majored in Advertising after having switched majors from Pre-Pharm. Kalina has mentioned in her Gamelink interview how;
“I was an Advertising major in the Mass Communications department at college (though I was previously Pre-Pharm, because my parents wanted it. Sorry/Not Sorry) and the plan is to be smart, save money, and invest, even though porn is a big party and I’m here for the experience. Afterward I want to paint my pornstar girlfriends”.
Kalina lost her virginity when she was 16 years old and revealed within her July 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“He didn’t know I was a virgin. I met him doing community service. I never told anyone this story before because I was embarrassed. I got a speeding ticket and I didn’t have a job so I had no way to pay for it. So I had to do community service and he was a cute boy and he was doing the same thing. And it just happened!…I would say that I was mostly promiscuous between the ages of 16 and 18. Then I had two serious relationships during college. I never told them how many people I was with. It was a lot! (laughs)”.
The question on everyone’s lips; how did Kalina first begin performing in porn? Well, Kalina started to consider pursuing a career in the adult industry in 2013 whilst she was working as a cocktail waitress in Florida. During this time Kalina had an opportunity to be an extra in a Bang Bros porn production which enabled her to become friends with female porn star Rachel Starr. As Kalina herself explained during her July 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I didn’t want to do the 9 to 5. I knew that I wanted to pursue art but I also wanted to make more money. (laughs) I wasn’t sure what I needed to do. I was thinking of going back to school and pursuing something else. I was cocktail waitressing and having a lot of fun making easy money. Then I fell into porn…I had an opportunity to be an extra at BangBros. I met Rachel Starr and we hit it off. She told me all about the industry because I didn’t know much about it. I thought it was for degenerates and all the typical stereotypes. I didn’t know. She told me how amazing it was and took me under her wing. She was my first scene and I was so happy”.
After all, Kalina has always had a creative streak. In fact, Kalina has revealed in previous interviews that her true passion in life is painting. Kalina continues to paint abstract reality portraits of naked women and divulged in her September 2014 AVN Fresh Face interview that;
“If I wasn’t doing porn I’d be working in advertising on the creative side. That’s what my major is in. After porn I’d like to paint. I like to paint women in abstract reality so hopefully I can have my porn star girlfriends sit for me. And hopefully with their celebrity status and their fan base, I’ll have someone to sell my work to. That’s what I’m hoping will happen. So I can make a little money, buy a house on the beach and paint my paintings. Live happily ever after like that”.
Kalina Ryu : Adult Film Career
Kalina filmed her first ever sex scenes in January 2013 with Mercedes Lynn and Rachell Starr, titled Fucking Chicks W/ Rachel Starr, that were distributed via the popular Bang Bros porn site PartyofThree.com. Kalina discussed shooting her first ever sex scenes in her July 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview, highlighting how;
“I was a little bit nervous but not star struck. I wasn’t camera shy. I think I was just excited to be in the presence of beautiful women. It was a three-way , Mercedes Lynn was the other girl, and I forgot about the camera. It was for BangBros. Party of 3. To be honest, I don’t remember being nervous about the camera or anything; I just remember beautiful women. That’s how my scenes go. I get nervous during the dialogue or during the pretty girls. I get better each time and hopefully I’ll grow. I don’t know, the animal just comes out”.
Some of Kalina’s earliest porn productions include the Cherry Pimps DVD compilation title Cherry Spot 3 (2014) also starring A.J. Applegate, Belle Knox, Aaliyah Love, Dakota Skye, Danica Dillan, Layla Rose and Jessa Rhodes that was nominated for “Best Solo Movie” at the 2016 AVN Awards, Hustler’s True Love Stories 2 (2014) which was nominated for “Best Romance Movie” at the 2015 AVN Awards, Throat Training (2014) for Evil Angel that was nominated for “Best Oral Movie” at the 2016 AVN Awards, Tug Jobs 34 (2014) for Bang Bros featuring Missy Martinez, Ariana Marie, Marina Angel and Whitney Westgate.
But wait, it gets even better! Kalina also filmed an amazing orgy with Adriana Chechik, Carmen Caliente, Mandy Muse, Sara Luvv and Manuel Ferrara for the Jules Jordan Video sequel release Manuel Ferrara’s Reverse Gangbang 2 (2014) which was nominated for “Best Orgy/Gangbang Release” at the 2015 AVN Awards. Kalina initially performed under the stage name ‘Lily Ocean’ but has since switched to ‘Kalina Ryu’ as her fans best know her. As Kalina herself explained in her July 2014 Fleshbot interview;
“Started off as Lily Ocean, but there are over 400 Lily’s when you search. I wanted a unique name that has meaning to me. I changed the first letter of my childhood best friend’s name Calina. Then Ryu is a Korean surname”.
Following her adult film industry debut Kalina was still living in Florida so she found it difficult to secure bookings for shoots. Even after moving to Los Angeles, California, Kalina initially struggled to establish herself within the adult film industry. Fortunately, Kalina was spotted by Evil Angel director Jonni Darkko who has continued to feature her within his critically acclaimed Evil Angel porn productions. Kalina remains incredibly grateful to Jonni for his ongoing support throughout her adult film career and she ardently expressed within her September 2014 AVN Fresh Face interview that;
“He said, ‘Listen, you’re amazing. People don’t know who you are. Wait until I show them who you are.’ He was the only one who believed in me. I am completely thankful to him just for being in my corner and giving me this opportunity. Now people are starting to notice me. I’m super excited and I feel very thankful to him…
I didn’t really have too many expectations. Things had been going slow for me, honestly. I’d been in L.A. for five months and the only person who had shot me really was Jonni Darkko. If it weren’t for him taking notice of me I don’t know if anybody else would. I’m really grateful to him. I’ve learned a lot from him. Not having any modelling or acting experience, each time I’m on set I learn something”.
Jonni has expressed similarly high praise for Kalina and he sincerely stated via a July 2014 AVN press release how;
“I knew Kalina was a special performer the first time I started rolling the camera on the very first scene…She was so hot and nasty. Tons of spit, amazing eye contact. I knew it was on. Kalina has a super fun sexuality. She giggles and is fun and I think it’s amazing. You don’t see it a lot in porn. I think fans will really get into it”.
In fact, it was Jonni who gave Kalina her big break when he featured her within her very own Evil Angel signature showcase Kalina Ryu: Asian Fuck Doll (2014). This sizzling signature showcase enabled Kalina to shoot her first ever boy/boy/girl three-way with Gavin Kane and Jessy Jones as well as her first ever blow-bang with Ike Diezel, Jessy Jones, John Strong, Marco Banderas, Michael Vegas, Romeo Mancini, Ryan McLane and Tony Martinez. Kalina Ryu: Asian Fuck Doll was a critical and commercial success; winning “Asian-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2015 XBIZ Awards and receiving a notable “Best Soundtrack” nomination at the 2015 AVN Awards. Kalina even received glowing endorsements from prominent porn critics such as XCritic column writer Don Houston who stated in his July 2014 film review that;
“Kalina Ryu: Asian Fuck Doll by director Jonni Darkko for Evil Angel was a special little spotlight feature on a newcomer talent, using both discs to provide extensive tease footage and show just what impressed the director to pick her out of scores of worthy candidates for such a production. The strokability, replay value, and sheer amount of fun factor she displayed made her a serious contender for a wide array of awards, my rating of this title coming in as Highly Recommended. Given that I’m not even known as a big Asian enthusiast you may even want to upgrade the rating a notch but in each scene, Kalina Ryu, formerly known as Lily Ocean, truly shined. In short then, Kalina Ryu: Asian Fuck Doll was one of the very best spotlight showcases I have seen in a long time, not relying on a host of circus act sex or a ton of “firsts” at all, her active riding skills and impressive oral abilities securing her future in the industry for a very long time indeed”.
Kalina has continued to collaborate with Jonni Darkko on a steady stream of Evil Angel DVD titles including Asian Fuck Nation 6 (2015) that was nominated for “Best Ethnic Movie” at the 2016 AVN Awards and “Asian-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards, Fitness Sluts (2016) featuring Abella Danger, Holly Hendrix, Alexa Tomas and London Keyes, Kalina Ryu Reamed ‘N’ Creamed (2017) and Facial Fantasy 2 (2017) also starring Anna Bell Peaks, Marica Hase, Gina Valentina, Nyomi Star, Penelope Reed and Zelda Morrison.
Kalina has since collaborated with Jonni Darkko on the sensational Evil Angel oral-themed DVDs Sperm Diet (2015) and Sloppy Head 7 (2016) that were both nominated for “Best Oral Movie” at the AVN Awards in 2016 and 2017 respectively, as well as Suck Balls 4 (2015) which earned Kalina a “Best Oral Sex Scene” nomination at the 2016 AVN Awards. Kalina has continued to receive a wealth of adult film award nominations over the past three years including;
- 2015 : AVN Awards nominee “Cutest Newcomer (Fan Award)”
- 2016 : AVN Awards nominee “Best Oral Sex Scene” Suck Balls 4
- 2016 : AVN Awards nominee “Favourite Female Porn Star (Fan Award)”

- 2017 : AVN Awards nominee “Best Group Sex Scene” Mick Blue’s Best Day Ever (with Anikka Albrite, Vicki Chase and Mick Blue)
One of Kalina’s most popular Jonni Darkko/Evil Angel DVD collaborations to date has been Slutty Angels (2017), starring Holly Hendrix, Vicki Chase and Megan Rain, within which Kalina filmed her first ever anal sex scenes. During this time Kalina was also ranked #34 in Complex magazine’s “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars (Right Now)” list in March 2017. Kalina enjoyed working with Jonni Darkko on her amazing anal sex debut and eagerly enthused within a February 2017 AVN press release that;
“This was such a fun scene. I’d even say my best to date. I loved my makeup, bright neon outfit, dildo, oil, speculum, some double-vag stretching my pussy out, sloppy deep throat for sure, some anal play and d.p. with a dildo…
I love shooting for Jonni…I always have so much fun, I forget he’s actually working. I watch the way he lights his set and notice his attention to detail taking stills. He’s creative and twisted and stylish with his photos and videos, and he creates an original soundtrack for all of his productions. I love his makeup artists, his fancy lingerie choices…
It’s so fun to get all dolled up, feeling glamorous, pretty, confident, sexy, and then to get completely destroyed. To stop caring about anything else in that time, other than being a submissive, dirty Slutty Angel, a deep throating, ball-sucking, ass-licking, makeup-smeared, cum-greedy, deliriously happy whore. No shame for how disgusting, because you’re floating from having your brains fucked out. When you feel cum-dumb from multiple orgasms, and exhausted, and hungry after, you know that was a good one…I was excited and surprised to find myself on the box cover. I’m flattered to be in a movie where I’m a fan of the other girls”.
Throughout her porn career Kalina has been showcased in numerous best-selling Asian themed DVD series such as Asian Stepdaughters (2016) for Diabolic Video that was nominated for “Best Ethnic Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards, Asian XPerts (2016) for Jay Rock Productions which was nominated for “Asian-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards and My Asian Hotwife 2 (2016) for New Sensations that was also nominated for “Asian-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards.
One of Kalina’s most popular Asian themed releases to date has been Jonni Darkko’s Jules Jordan Video/Jonni Darkko Productions DVD title Asian Fuck Machines (2016). Featuring Kalina in a terrific three-way with Jonni Darkko and Mick Blue, Asian Fuck Machines was a critical and commercial success that won “Best Ethnic Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards and “Asian-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards.
In addition to her hot hardcore shoots, Kalina is an exceptional girl/girl performer. Fans of Kalina’s lusty lesbian DVD titles will love viewing her steamy shoot with Kaylani Lei in the Wicked Pictures feature release Starmaker (2015) that was nominated for “Best Drama” at the 2016 AVN Awards, “Feature Movie of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards and “Best Epic” at the 2016 XRCO Awards, her epic all-group sex scene with Anikka Albrite, Carter Cruise and Sasha Heart in Anikka and Carter (2015) for Adam & Eve that was nominated for “All-Girl Release of the Year: Non-Feature” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards, and her raunchy femdom shoot with Kleio Valentien in She’s In Control (2015) for Addicted 2 Girls also starring seasoned dommes Aiden Starr, Daisy Ducati, Casey Calvert and Veruca James.
Kalina has since filmed some raunchy fetish scenes with Dana Vespoli in Lesbian Public Sex Fetish 2 (2015) for Evil Angel which was nominated for “Fetish Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards, she has shared a thrilling three-way with Alexis Texas and Dahlia Sky in AI: Artificial Intelligence (2016) for Girlsway which won “Best Special Effects” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards and she has filmed some sizzling scenes with Marie McCray for the Girlfriends Films/Girlsway DVD title A Girlsway Girl Story (2017) also featuring Janice Griffith, April O’Neil, Jenna Sativa and Kristina Rose. Kalina enjoys shooting these steamy girl/girl scenes and has mentioned during her July 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“I’ve always been bi-curious. Even as a child, I was always drawing girls. I would grab a fashion magazine and look at the lingerie section because the women were beautiful. I never had many opportunities because I was with friends and it would be awkward or they just weren’t my type. Porn is great because you can try anything”.
When she isn’t shooting these popular porn productions, Kalina has been hosting all manner of intimate live chat sessions via the XXX-rated webcam network Naked.com. Kalina enjoys webcamming with her international fan following and has stated during her July 2014 Fleshbot interview how much;
“I do love and appreciate my fans. Their affection is encouraging. On webcam too, these boys, they make me laugh… Thank you. Love you”.
