Because we like our memes slutty

I haven’t had the time to keep my Korean up for the last way-too-long, but since Kangaji is soon to be within daily nagging distance, I will try to post something racy on a weekly basis.

As usual, the sports daily fills up space with a survey of Youtube comments about women.

18+ “Kuiyo Misong” release controversy . . . Netizens reproach “national shame”

Criticism is arising for the release of a 19+ version of “Kuiyo Misong” [“Cute smile”].

Recently the online video site Youtube carried a video of three women following along with “Kuiyo Misong” and sexily dancing in place, drawing a lot of interest. In the video, the women sit side by side on a bed and make sexy gestures. They give a dizzying performance, pulling down their sleeves and wiggling their butts.

But some netizens are raising their voices in reproach for the women in the video and commenters. It is not only that the behavior in the video is vulgar, but ecause they worry that since they put the word “Korean” [in English] in the title they will spread a negative impression of Korea and Korean women.

Netizens who saw the video responded, “While Kuiyo Misong parodies are trendy this isn’t like that.” “It brings shame to the whole country.” “In the second part they took off all of their clothes so it is good that they were stopped.” “I don’t understand why they would make something like this.”

Some netizens drew attention with the claim that the women featured in the video were transsexuals from another country.

The video in question.

And I just lost my weekend clicking through “Kwiyo Misong” videos.

The underside of plastic surgery in K pop

Found this story in a gossip column.

Original on In’gan Sports.

A pitiful event occurred when Miss B of girl group A cried at a broadcasting station and had to leave because the swelling hadn’t gone down from her “Pinnochio nose”. Group A just published a new album is in the middle of[promotional] activities. That day, the same as other days, they were waiting to perform on a broadcast television music program. But a supervising PD came and blocked Team A’s performance. The reason really took my breath away. The swelling in the nose of Miss B, who had cosmetic surgery, hadn’t diminished and had swollen larger. Her face had “transformed” to the extent that she couldn’t go out on the broadcast. In the end the PD stood and cancelled the performance and A group cried as they left the station. Miss B, take care. How much has her nose changed . . .

Wow, am out of practice. Quick and dirty and barely legible translation.

Hyona "Ice Cream"

Hyona, stronger than the bubble bath? Rated 19 video notice.

The judgment for what audience age rating the music video for Hyona’s new song “Ice Cream” will receive, giving notice to the appropriate level, is drawing attention.

Hyona is scheduled to release the feature music video for “Ice Cream” on the 22nd. Even though the “Ice Cream” teaser released on the 19th was rated for audiences age 15 and up, it is drawing attention for its unprecedented bubble bath scene, and level of the music video is expected to be much higher. A representative of the agency Cube Entertainment hinted, “It will feel a little stronger overall.”

In the past they [music producers] have intended to avoid the “age 19” rating, but recently, while there is a policy that teens can’t view, a higher level of expression has been allowed. Accordingly, it is likely that Hyona, who has preferred unconventional performances near the limits, will choose to take an “age 19” rating this time.

Recently there is the example where Ka-in put the music video for “P’iona [Bloom]”, which receive an age 19 rating, online, where it received a warm response.

Hyona’s EP Melting has been leaked out overseas and was urgently released at 2 PM on the 22nd. Notwithstanding the album’s unexpected release, as of this afternoon the album has leapt to number five on the charts of music sites such as Melon and has received a warm response.

Since the “Ice Cream” teaser video was released two days ago it has been ranked the most searched for video this week with more than 2.4 million hits.

As I’m sure I mentioned before, ‘bagel-girl’ is a Korean portmanteau of ‘baby-face’ and ‘glamour’ (borrowed word used to mean a voluptuous figure).

Profit from le petit objet (I don’t speak French)

Fetishes. So much to be said, so little time.

Stewardess bar employees

Yes, airline stewardesses are working people who deserve to do their jobs without being sexually harassed.

It needs to be pointed out that it is the airlines who, from the beginning and through the present, presented and rareified the stewardess as a sexual object. While US airlines have largely reformed their policies and treat attendants more like typical service sector employees (admittedly, particularly skilled ones), Asian airlines are notorious for going the opposite way. Wasn’t there a reality show about hiring women as flight attendants for China Air a few years back? I know Sheridan Prasso has written on it.

And Korean flight attendants make more money because they are held to beauty standards as well as professionalism. I don’t know much about the industry, inside, but it seems that Korean flight attendants are at least a little complicit in their objectification, and they profit from it.

What may be more interesting is the development of branding and marketing in adult entertainment industry in Korea. The industry manages to be simultaneously in-your-face and underground. How is that changing? Well, this makes an interesting data point. Notice that they did not publish the name of the establishment.

Attentive readers of the original Korean will notice the different synonyms for “bar” used.

Also, the word of the day is ‘sikkop-hada’ (‘식겁하다’). The only translation I found on Naver was ‘freakify‘, whatever that means.

Seriously, though? I never understood the stewardess fetish. For one thing, I think the scarves look ridiculous. Also, airplane cabins? Not sexy.

Somehow I doubt that, to really recreate the experience, they jam your seats together and make you climb over each other every time you need to go to the bathroom. I wonder if the food is also horrible? At least the prices look realistic.

[Exclusive] Stewardesses serving in room salons? Concept bar criticism

“We offer the highest service of beautiful stewardesses.”

Lately, around lunch hour in the street in front of Exit Seoul’s Kangnam Station, you can see slender women in stewardess uniforms passing out flyers the size of business cards for an adult entertainment club. At first glance, they look just like Korean Air stewardess, with even the scarfs tied at their necks, but their skirts seem to be more than 20 cm shorter than Korean Air official uniforms.

The shop they are promoting is a type of “concept bar” that presents women in stewardess uniforms. Bars called ‘stewardess bars’ are doing great business in areas like Kangnam, Youido, and Mugyodong. Employees are going out to the street and enticing customers, saying, “Stewardesses pour your drinks.”

Stewardess bar employees, lined up.

Hong Chi-in (23), a stewardess applicant attending a nearby stewardess academy, said, “Those clothes are the envy of stewardess applicants, it’s unpleasant to seem them wearing them as a ‘company outfit’.”

The Korean Air uniforms drawing this criticism became famous when they were personally designed by the global fashion designer Gian Franco Ferre in 2005. It’s unique characteristics are the sky-blue silk blouse, the hairpin that draws association with the Korean traditional pinyo, and the scarf. ‘Stewardess bar’ employees serve customers wearing clothes identical to the uniform of Korean Air employees. Also characteristic is a menu and interior referencing cabin service.

The menu follows the names of airplane passenger levels. The economy course (149,000 won) is the most inexpensive and there is also business class (210,000 won) and first class (269,000). It is written down on the menu that these courses, “provide whiskey, food, and a stewardess.”

Mr. Kim (33), a manager operating this establishment, hinted, “If a stewardess you desire is there, they can be seated [with you] for 100,000 won per person.” It is intended to be a business transaction similar to adult entertainment clubs where they receive tips.

Currently working stewardesses and stewardess applicants have stood in opposition to stewardess bars. Ms. Kim (29), in her seventh year as a Korean Air stewardess, said, “I had heard that it was popular to wear uniforms similar to ours in clinics like dermatologists or cosmetic surgery, but I can’t stand that they are wearing them in bars.” Another stewardess, Miss Choi (25), flew into a rage, saying, “I freaked when I saw them wearing our uniforms to hand out flyers and knew what the company’s intentions were.” “Doesn’t the company have to steps so it can’t be worn in other places?”

Actually, the uniform is sold for 45,000 won in internet shopping malls. As well as these ‘stewardess bars’ that are drawing criticism, a ‘concept bar’ in Youido that presents female employees wearing women’s military uniforms is also popular.

Ivy goes shopping, BREAKING NEWS!

I never figure out what they really mean in the netizen comments. I need to get better with colloquial expressions.

I get that there is a sense of false modesty required from celebrities, especially women celebrities, but I think that when Korean media figures talk about getting fat or ugly, well, I think it really exacerbates the problem of the media promoting unrealistic standards of beauty. Can’t it be possible to show modesty without trying to raise the bar?

I mean, I get that its a joke, but, really, can’t public figures like her try to encourage wider standards of beauty?

Jamilla agreed to this, “That’s right.” But about cosmetic surgery, she shared her positive opinion that, “I think it is better to have cosmetic surgery rather than go on living with a complex.”

Jamilla added, “I also want to get cosmetic surgery. My nose is flat so I want to have my nose done.”

Jamilla, who revealed herself on the screen for the first time in two years, gave a shock with her rapidly aged appearance. Netizens responded, “She seems much older than before.” “She is pretty now, but where is her appearance from two years ago?”
