From my limited TV-viewing experience this might be one of the few times we've seen an attractive Korean woman with an attractive white guy on TV. He certainly comes off a lot better here than those assholes on "Sexy Mong" who portrayed drunks and date rapists. She's a nude model, though, and it was hard to find a picture of her remotely work safe, so that might account for why it's acceptable for her to be with a white guy, even for just one episode, considering the sexist depictions of Korean women who sully themselves with foreign men.
The Chosun Ilbo has a little bit about her appeal, from a 2006 article:
With fantastic curves -- 174 cm tall and weighing 49 kg with measurements of 34-23-36 -- she was clearly top among the 17 women who made it to the final. Her hottest asset is a waistline that would make even Lee Hyo-lee jealous. Personally Lee is proud of her formidable chest and hips, which make her quite literally stand out from the crowd. But she also won the singing competition with her rendition of the Whitney Houston classic “I Will Always Love You.”
Oddly enough, she was married in 2006, but I'm gonna guess that didn't last. Off topic, but whenever I hear "Korean Playboy" I always think back to this article from a few years ago:
A Playboy model search for pretty boys? No, but even so, five men applied for the "Playboy 2006 Korea Model Contest" sponsored by the Cable channel, Spice TV, the local network of Playmodel Media Group. These male applicants, 6 feet (180cm) or taller with movie star-good looks, are in their early 20s and judging by their attempts to apply for the contest, courageous too.
The reason behind their endeavor to enter a women-only model search event? Reportedly they had never heard of the world-famous nude magazine, Playboy. While pretty much any male who grew up in the 70's or 80's had seen the magazine at least once, the younger generation is, in reality, not familiar with the publication as they have little interest in sex-related magazines due in no small part to more easily accessible internet sites of that nature.
The sponsor said that they have returned the applications of the five men, speculating that they may have interpreted the word "playboy" literally and thought it would be a contest for "playful men."
LOL, just another case of English miseducation ruining lives.
