  1. The Quiet American (The irony's not lost on me)

    Poor girl. RIP.

    Korean parents: Keep your daughters out of show biz!! Unless you want her forced to have sex with agents, business men, and do whatever else her bosses tell her to do.

    There is a pervasive sickness in the Korean Entertainment industry and an inherent defect, when dealing with women, in the minds of the men who run it.
    A titanic culture shift is needed in order to stop more of these poor women from dying far to early. Who will be the first woman to sacrifice, to step forward and tell all? Tell the people what they. You are not alone!
