Various origins of female stars… 'Miss Korea' group falters

2008/03/13 | Permalink | Source

On a breezy spring day in March 2008, the entertainment investigation team of Sports Khan sensed an emergency. The argument between female stars about their influence has become fierce, almost to the point of battle. Accordingly, under the supervision of Detective Choi, the entertainment investigation team had a briefing on the 'Map of Various Powerful Female Stars'. A record of the questions and answers from the briefing are provided.

Detective Choi: As you all know, we've gathered here to discuss the toppling balance of the influence of top female celebrities. Firstly, the 'super model' group has almost taken over the 'Miss Korea' group and has become the 'big sister' of the entertainment industry. Also, the new 'internet beauty' group is extended its boundaries. Contrary to these changes, the 'horror story' group is still steadily on the top.

Chairman Oh: Surprising. 'Super models' are not only tall but are growing in power? What is their weapon? Sushi knives? Wooden sticks?

Detective Choi: No. Something stronger. It's their S-line bodies and sexiness that hold men spellbound. These days, they also have great acting skills and talent, and are nullifying other influences.

Leader Kang: Even acting skills? The sun must be rising in the west. Who are the main representatives of the 'super model' group?

Detective Choi: Han Ji-hye, Han Ye-seul, and Han Go-eun, who are known as the "Han sisters". Through the drama "Hateful and Lovely", which has reached 40% viewing rates, Han Ji-hye has gathered all of Korea's women under her. Han Ye-seul captured male fans with her catchphrase in "Fantastic Couple". Han Go-eun, who is in "Park Jung Geum", has the weapon of sexiness. And Choi Yeo-jin is pounding the entertainment industry with her perfect body. So Yi-hyun, Yoon Ji-min, Kong Hyun-joo, and Kim Bin-woo are also following.

Leader Kang: The 'Miss Korea' team has a longer history. It doesn't seem they'll be pushed easily…

Detective Choi: The 'Miss Korea' group, consisting of Go Hyun-jung, Oh Hyun-kyung, Yum Jung-ah, Sung Hyun-ah, Kim Hye-ri, and Kim Sung-ryung, still participate but their power has decreased due to marriage and childbirth. Kim Sa-rang, Lee Bo-young, Park Si-yeon, and Honey Lee are trying to continue their legacy but they aren't able to uphold to their big sister's famous names. This might be because the focus goes more to intellect than talent after the accusation that Miss Korea markets the female gender.

Detective Park Jeong-Geum: Sir! I have some secret information. There is word that 'super model' member Han Go-eun is acting under the alias of Sa Gong Yoo Ra. She is winning Lawyer Kim Kyeong-soo with that alias. But it seems the 'internet beauty' team is also quietly spreading their influences. How is it?

Detective Choi: There aren't many female internet beauties, since it is a term usually used for males. However, their power is no joke. Ku Hye-sun, Nam Sang-mi, Kim Ok-vin, Park Han-byul are among them, and although there are few, their power is amazing. They don't have S-line bodies like the super models but they receive the spotlight more due to their cute faces and average height that fit on the TV screen so well. Maybe it's because the 'internet beauty' group seems royal, but they are joining with the 'horror story' group to spread their influence. Park Han-byul and Kim Ok-vin are going back and forth from the two teams.

Chairman Oh: What! The quiet, but powerful, 'horror story' group? Then you're saying their influence is amazing too!

Detective Choi: Of course. The 'horror story' group started in the office of Cine2000. Park Jin-hee is the leader, who has spread her power through last year's "War of Money", that outlined the underground loan business. In addition, Gong Hyo-jin, Kim Gyu-ri, Song Ji-hyo, Jo An, Cha Ye-ryun, and Seo Ji-hye are also active participators.

Officer Ha: I'm not sure… but are there other groups?

Detective Choi: Listen well. There is the 'magazine model' group with Lee Yo-won, Kim Min-hee, and Jang Hee-jin, and the 'commercial model' group with Jun Ji-hyun, Kim Tae-hee, and Lee Na-young. But it is hard to see them in one group since they have various styles.

Chairman Oh: I see. It was a good briefing. So what kind of measures would you suggest against this fight for power?

Detective Choi: I'm not sure... I haven't thought that far yet. I'm just saying we should avidly watch the dramas and movies that they star in.

All: (speechless expressions) I knew it, Detective Choi!
