Korean News Anchor Jang Mi-il

MBC news anchor and reporter Jang Mi-il has probably been the most searched-for and viewed TV news personality, over the past couple of years by Korean "netizens."

A graduate of the prestigious Ewha Womans University with a degree in English Literature, Mi-il joined MBC in 2003, where she has since made quite a name for herself and has earned recognition from fans and peers, alike ....and not just for her looks and wardrobe.

Dorothy Stratten on the Tonight Show

There have been several Playboy Playmates who've met with untimely deaths, but none such as Dorothy Stratten, who was the reigning Playmate of the Year when she was murdered by her estranged husband in August of 1980. Here she is on the Tonight Show in April of that year, just after being crowned the 1980 Playmate of the Year and her career showing signs of really taking off.

During her very brief acting career, after her whirlwind ride to fame as a Playmate, she appeared in several TV shows and movies. Her most notable film, Galaxina, in which she played the title character, has since become sort of a cult favorite, and Dorothy; sort of a cult figure, due to the timing and manner of her demise 29 years ago today. For those wanting to know the sordid (but interesting) details of her murder, the guys at FindaDeath.com, who do some great research on these matters, have this on it.
