Lee Hyori's "It's Hyorish"

One of the most popular posts on my blog is one about how I rant (real briefly) about Korean women being the sexiest dressers.  For a period of time, I noticed how every younger Korean woman I saw was able to make their outfit look much sexier than needed.  At work, the computer I was using at our previous offices defaulted to Daum.net as the home page & I couldn’t help notice on the site that they tried to ring in surfers with a random sexy Korean girl pic here or there.  Continue reading

Two sites that I check out regularly are http://news.google.com and http://news.yahoo.com to keep up with the news on top of my daily reading of my day old Int’l Herald Tribune and periodic checks of the New York Times Online.  While I detest the obviously overdone and extremely overweighted focus on the Entertainment industry, I just can’t help but look at and even read articles like this:

Britney Spears calls it “entertainment expenses”, but we all know it’s “time well spent with her buddies Paris Hilton, et. al.”

In her recent court case to get custody of her kids or rather to get time with them, she had to tell the court what her monthly expenses were. No wonder she was desperate to release another album…she needs to support her million dollar a year in expenses with something, right?! Come on people, but Britney’s got to live too, eh?

More on the story here.
