The Girl Friday makes a return this week, now that I'm able to stay at the computer and away from the heating pad long enough :)
Since Korea has been in the news as of late, I decided that the Girl Friday post should take the opportunity to reflect current affairs. At least that's the excuse that I'm using for the sudden turn from beauties of the past to a more contemporary treasure... this time, from the exotic land of Korea.
This Week's Girl Friday is Im Ji Hye:
Im Ji Hye first captured the attention of photographers at a Motor Show in Seoul, Korea in 2007. There's an odd phenomenon in Asian countries - and to some extent Western countries - where cult followings will develop around auto show models.
You know,... the girls that stand by the cars at the auto show and basically look pretty?
For a few years, individual girls will gain huge followings of fans who buy magazines featuring their photos.
It's pretty funny to look at video from an Asian Car Show, Electronic Show, or Technology show. The models are uniformly pretty cute. They have certain facial expressions and mannerisms, though, that seem almost required as a part of the culture. You see the same somewhat intricate movements and poses over and over. It's almost a pantomime or a routine.
At any rate, they are an appealing group of gals - and Im Ji Hye is certainly no exception.
If for no other reason than what you've seen here today - we have to stand firm against the tyranny of Kim Jong Il.
We CAN NOT let this fall into his little, creepy, midget hands:
