Stars Flashy Flashy at 2007 Golden Disk Awards


With each awards show, the length of the skirts seems to be getting shorter and shorter. And this time, 2007 Best Dresser award winner Han Hyo-ju gives us a glimpse of what’s underneath all that glam.

While flimsy micro minis were worn by some, other female stars stuck it out with longer lengths. Overall, showing off skin was de rigeur despite the freezing temperatures. It’s at times like this, it’s good to be a guy and fully clothed.

Winner of the Grand Prix for the 2007 Golden Disk Awards went to SG Wannabe. Two-timer Ivy also picked up an award for the Best Digital Sound.

When’s the best time to go under the knife?


For regular folks, the perfect time to get your double eye-lid or higher nose or sharper chin is in between high school graduation and college orientation. But for celebs, the optimal time to go under the knife is before one’s debut. Although netizens dig up baby photos, graduation photos, etc to prove that they went under the knife, most people eventually move on, associating the name to the new and improved face. read more

What line are you?

Koreans, especially young netizens love to create new words to describe the latest trend. There are new word or catch phrase created every other week that I don’t even try to keep up, but observing the creation of new words used to describe beautiful bodies over couple of months has been somewhat entertaining, hence this post.

It started out with Korea’s obsession of S-Line or women’s curvy figure. Chopstick figured body was out and glamour was in. Every female celeb on TV tried to show off their S-Line and if they didn’t have it, they would even pose a certain way to look like they had it. Then, male celebs got on the “let’s show off our beautiful bodies” bandwagon and started to flash us with their perfect abs and the word M-Line was formed to describe their fine abs.




One line word per gender, not bad. But it started to get out of hand when BoA‘s face was referred as the V-Line and singer Byul’s lower back as the U-Line.



What’s next? The I-line for your legs and E-line for your fingers? Seriously, somebody needs to put a break into this silly word formations. It’s not creative nor catchy. What’s worse is that nobody’s going to understand what the heck you are talking about when you say, “I love your V-line, can I have your number?” outside Korea.

Oh, I wish I was at the MAC Viva Glam VI Party


MAC’s Viva Glam VI Party showcased Marilyn Manson’s ex, Dita Von Teese, on Friday night. I had planned to go to the party but missed it because I was on the flight back to Seoul. Like Ms Teese who is flanked by 2 deliciously half-naked male models, I had the pleasure of being on a full plane in a middle seat also flanked by men, but that’s where the commonality ends. From the beginning of the flight, the aisle guy kept letting out concentrated toxic fumes every time he shifted in his seat and then, when he fell asleep, he completely let loose. I was not shy about covering my nose. However, what was even worse was when the lights went down, the window guy began to stare at me to see if I was aware of the frenzied activity that was going on under his blanket! Ugh. Yuck. Ew.  In my relatively short life, that was THE worst plane ride ever. Phew, ok, I had to let that out.

However, I digress. It’s too bad that I missed out on seeing Hyori and Bada in a sexy black outfits, international model Song, Park Shinhye of GoongS, Park Ji-yong and Jun Hye-bin. It would have been infinitely more interesting (and pleasant smelling) than being stuck in a middle seat sandwiched by 2 noxious men on a long 12 hour flight.*


This witch is not amusing: How not to pose


Obviously, Jun Hae Bin (Bin) doesn’t know how to pose. Who leans backward to make your S-line more visible? Girl, if you don’t have one, work on it instead of posing like an idiot in front of hundreds of cameras! Her outfit also won her the “fashion terrorist” of the week award. Not the best way to start her role in Witch Amusement. Don’t ya think? continue reading
