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.

Korean media on Russian women

The Korean male perspective upon Russian women has, well, certain subtexts. Slavic women are exoticized and viewed as sexually available. So, this article caught my attention.

A socialist country has a feeling of dreary standardization. But even inside there people’s every actions accomplish something. [?] The praise of women’s beauty is the same.

Recently photos of beautiful women released from Russia are drawing attention among netizens. These are the photos of the first Miss Soviet pageant held in the Soviet Union in 1988.

In this pageant held by the Soviet generation, that erected the world’s first socialist nation in 1922 and dissolved/collapsed in 1991, the photos are not very different from today, if you overlook that they are only in black and white. Of course there are dresses with plunging necklines and they held a swimsuit judging that seems appropriate.

The various responses of every country’s netizens are, “The times have changed but there are certainly beautiful women in Russia.” “In any generation, the beauty of Russian women is guaranteed.” “They are more beautiful than the artificial people of silicone and plastic nowadays, it is so cool.”

China’s hottest lesbian

I first heard about Lan Yen when she was in the news for disappearing suddenly, shortly before the release of the 3D porn movie. At the time she was known to have had a long struggle with depression and many people were afraid she was suicidal. I translated the article on my other, defunct blog.

I hope she finds things easier coming out of the closet.

As a note, “Okpodan 3D” is a romanization of the Korean pronunciation of the original Chinese title. It is marketed in the West as “Sex and Zen 3D: Extreme Ecstasy” and is loosely based on the 90’s “Sex and Zen” franchise, starring the legendary Amy Yip.

Female announcer, murdered after rejecting male admirer

An intern woman announcer who had just graduated from a Taiwan university was murdered by a male student from the same university a day before her first broadcast.

Eastern Television News reported on the 1st that Ms. Lin, a graduate of the National United University in Miaoli County in northwestern Taiwan, was discovered murdered in her off-campus apartment on the 29th. Police mobilized a force of over 200 police and police dogs and after a day had arrested suspect Lin Kun-han.

According to reports, intern announcer Ms. Lin, who while distinguishing herself by entering a broadcast bureau after graduation and was just about to have her first broadcast on the 30th, began as a campus queen who assumed a role of PR model at her university, and it became clear that suspect Lin Kun-han had unrequited love for her.

The issue was that Ms. Lin refused Lin Kun-han’s, who adored her, demands for her phone number. Lin Kun-han, who helped Ms. Lin pack boxes to move, used this as a pretext to demand her phone number but Ms. Lin refused him. The two began to argue and the angry Lin Kun-han pulled out a fruit knife and stabbed Ms. Lin more than ten times, killing her.

Lin Kun-han, who was caught by police the following day of the 30th while hiding on the tenth floor of a building at his school, even wrote down a scenario in his notebook and intended to escape the police dragnet. Lin Kun-han acknowledged the entire truth of the crime.

I think it is pretty interesting to see a frank admission of unrealistic standards of beauty. Could this be the beginning of concepts of human beauty in a post-Photoshop world?

‘Chiljomnyo’, angel of Chinese reality, ‘Can you go above seven on a ten point scale?’

[Photo caption: Typical beauty who is the center of attention on the Chinese internet, “Ch’iljomnyo”.]

[Sports Seoul dot com | Pak Sol-i reporter]

“Ch’iljomnyo” is heating up the Chinese internet.

“Ch’iljomnyo” is an innocent teenage girl with long straight hair and white skin who appeared in an appearance ranking game that began on a popular Chinese online community. Aside from being a student currently attending high school, her confirmed name and age have not been revealed.

As she is holding a can of milk tea, Ch’iljomnyo has been compared to the original milk tea girl Zhang Ze Tian. But the nickname “Ch’iljomnyo”, contrary to expectations, means that her appearance is graded a 7 on a 10 point scale. Given that seven points is outstanding, she has become the focus of netizen attention. [‘Ch’il’ = seven, ‘jom’ = point, ‘nyo’ = woman]

Ch’iljomnyo, meaning appearance rating of 7 points, originated from a game giving numerical grades to appearance that began on a famous online community. Among Chinese netizens it is used as a neologism to refer to a typical beautiful woman. It means a woman of the highest level of beauty that you can meet in everyday life.

Accordingly, they are divided with 1-4 points are third level, 5-7 points are second level, and 8-10 points are the first level, with second level and above being classifed as beautiful people. 7 points is the highest score a normal person can receive.

The first level is applied to an angelic degree of beauty that you cannot meat in reality, a grading for the women who exist in men’s fantasies, celebrities, first loves, sexy models, and so on.

This is old news from a year ago, but since Will was encouraging me to post more translations on haute culture, I dug it up.

Unidentified Hallyu celebrity ‘Kim Anna’ Japanese pornography performance scandal

[SportsSeoul.com] News that an unidentified Korean woman referred to as a Hallyu celebrity performed in Japanese pornography is at the center of a furor on the internet. It has become clear that the DVD in question, released with the title “Documentary in Seoul: Hallyu talent Kim Anna”, is a typical Japanese AV, i.e. porn.

The most serious part is that well-known domestic broadcast programs are listed in Kim Anna’s profile. Of course, among the titles parts have been deleted, guessing the names of the broadcast programs is really no trouble.

There are two programs that the production company claims Kim Anna performed in on the DVD jacket. One is the SBS drama “Love and Ambition” and the other is the MBC sitcom “Unstoppable High Kick”.

The problem is that it is difficult to judge who Kim Anna really is just looking at the jacket photo. At a glance, the very good looking woman, when you see her appearance at first, seems that she is probably a Korean woman.

But her face is hidden by large sunglasses so it is difficult to know who she is with certainty. On the back side of the DVD jacket they present the style photos of Kim Anna, who accepts every kind of perverted sexual act, but she is wearing sunglasses at the time.

Jazz dance instructor, 2nd place in dance tournament . . . performed in “Love and Ambition” and “Unstoppable High Kick”?

In particular, on the jacket it emphasizes that Kim Anna is a jazz dance instructor and received second place in a competitive dance tournament. And the indication that it is a first installment suggests that other pornography will probably be released.

One broadcast expert cautiously predicted, “The broadcasts that the person in question is said to have performed in are works from the period between 2006 and 2007,” and, “I can’t know whether she performed or not but even if she says she performed, wasn’t it a minor part as an extra?”

In the analysis of the broadcast expert, “The Hanbok porn received a lot of criticism now, but this pornography clearly intends to disparage Hallyu.” The issue is that the pornography brand packages “Korean women” and unidentifiable women as Hallyu celebrities.

Regarding this matter, in the opinion of adult culture expert Kim Ch’ang-hwan, “The video is not yet in circulation so it is hard to judge. But if I try to guess from the information apparent on the DVD jacket it was likely produced in Korea.”

This is not the first time that a social uproar arose over a Korean celebrity performing in Japanese AV. 10 years ago there was controversy at the news that Ms. J, who became famous in “Madame Emma 9”, performed in pornography that was released in Japan. In addition, sometimes erotic actresses wear hanbok and perform in Japanese pornography, and so create a scandal.
