Singer's Sexy Getup Shocks Again

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".

Last time Uhm caused a stir by appearing dressed in underwear and little more, she was marking the launch of the channel tvN channel Oct. 9. The title of the song, "Cum2me", was the target of criticism for being "sex marketing" because the word "cum" is slang for "ejaculate". She obliged by changing the spelling to "Come2me". But it was publicity money can't buy. "I was actually glad my clothes became the topic of controversy", Uhm said. "I'm sick of not being able to do certain things because of my age. Even though there were disparaging comments and negative opinions, I was happy that people showed an interest".

The second performance is fueling criticism. One irate Internet user posted opinion on the MBC's audience notice board saying, "How can she come out on stage with those embarrassing, indecent clothes. Did she really have to come dressed in clothes that women might have worn in the 70s or 80s in cheap bars, and on a public channel, when families were watching?" 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. Related articles on major portal sites like Naver were flooded with replies condemning her getup.
