You might, but probably don't, remember Uhm Jung-hwa for being in the news a few times a couple of years ago. Here's an excerpt of a 2006 Chosun Ilbo article called "Singer's Hotpants Inflame Cyberspace":
Attempting a comeback as a singer after two years and eight months of concentrating on other projects, Uhm Jung-hwa is at the center of online controversy surrounding what some call “sex marketing.” On Monday, Uhm appeared at the gymnastics arena in Seoul Olympic Park in fishnet stockings and hotpants that were indistinguishable from a pair of knickers. The occasion was the launch of the tvN channel, where Uhm debuted a song that will be included in her ninth album. Her sensual dancing with half-naked backup dancers inflamed spectators all the more, and the song’s salacious title “Cum2me” also failed to cool tempers.
LOL, what an awkward article. I think this is the video of that performance.
“Some may say that ‘cum’ is just short for ‘come’, but the word ‘cum’ has long been slang for ‘ejaculate’ or ‘to have an orgasm,’” one earnest Netizen explained.
Thanks dad. From an article a month later:
Fresh from controversy over her appearance on stage for a cable channel in a revealing outfit, the singer Uhm Jung-hwa has now caused a stir on a public broadcasting channel.
She was dressed in underwear and fishnet stockings when she sang her song “Come2me” and Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” on stage at the fifth MBC Film Awards at the Universal Arts Center on Sunday. After the performance, Ahn Sung-ki, who MC’d the event said, “I thought she might had forgotten to put her clothes on. The actors in the audience looked like they weren’t sure where they should be looking.”
Another Netizen admitted to feeling “very embarrassed” watching the display with his parents. “This is Korea. Why doesn’t she go and live in America?” he added.
Fuck you. How about you and your faux sexual conservatism go ogle some soju ads or hook up with a high school student or something.
