Korean Ero Icons

Of all the ladies who've set foot in the Korean soft core porn or "ero" (short for "erotic") video industry over the past 20 years, whether as a stepping (or stumbling) stone to other avenues of show biz or just to carve a niche for themselves as an ero actress before fading into obscurity, there are only a handful who have arguably earned icon status in the field.

One who can certainly be considered an ero icon is Jin Do-hee, who made her mark in the classic Milk Cow Lady's Love Affairs series. Pictured above is Do-hee adorning the video box cover for the 1995 original.

Han Ga-eun

Apparently, there weren't any Minas or Elf Girls that popped up in Korea during this year's World Cup as there were in 2002 and 2006, respectively. However, here's a nice photo of model Han Ga-eun (not to be confused with actresses Han go-eun or Han Ga-in) sporting World Cup cheer gear featuring the official t-shirt of the Korean national team's fans.

The shirt amusingly reads "Korea Legend - Begin to 2010" (sic), but even though the message on the shirt isn't quite clear, Ga-eun (23) compliments it more than well enough for me to forgive the questionable grammar.

Funny thing is, it wasn't my intention to do a solo feature on Ga-eun. Although she's very popular, she's just one of many popular Korean models adorning cars at motor shows these days. A friend sent me an e-mail about the Korean fan t-shirts with the "Konglish" wording and I got the idea to do a compilation post of Korean hotties wearing them, but Ga-eun was just one of too few to be found wearing one. However, rather than trash the entry, here's it is and what follows are a few more photos of Ga-in at some of the many events she's appeared at.

Subway Pole Dancer, Feifei

21 year-old pole dance instructor Feifei recently gained some notoriety in the Mainland Chinese city of Nanjing, for practicing her art aboard the local subway trains. Thanks to her skills on the pole and a some passengers uploading videos of one her performances to the Internet last month, Feifei, has now become a local celebrity in the Nanjing 1912 district, where she teaches and performs. Dubbed by Chinese netizens as "Steel Pole Sister," Feifei has been reported as saying she just wants to make pole dancing more popular .... and I'd say she's the perfect poster girl to accomplish that mission.

Danielle Fornarelli Shows Her World Cup Spirit

In the above video from her April photo shoot, Playboy model Danielle Fornarelli gave soccer fans an early look at the official US Mens National Team jerseys for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The US made it as far as the Round of 16 at this year's stage in South Africa. The 24 year-old, Chicago-based model is a 32DD and this photo shoot will probably prove to be a springboard to a pretty prominent modeling career. See more of Miss Fornarelli at her official website.

Nikkatsu Queens

"Pink films" ("pinku eiga" in Japanese), were certain types of Japanese softcore porn movies that were produced from the mid-1960s to the late-1980s. The ones made by Nikkatsu studios from 1971-1988 were known as the second wave of the pink film era. Also dubbed "roman porn," (which is short for "romantic pornography" and has absolutely nothing to do with anything coming from Italy's capital city) a couple of of the more notable early Nikkatsu productions were Apartment Wife: Afternoon Affair, which starred Kazuko Shirakawa and Secret Chronicle: She Beast Market, with Junko Miyashita.

In 1974, Nikkatsu movies such as Flower and Snake (poster above), began centering on bondage and S&M themes and often starred Noami Tani, a young actresses who savored her roles and looked great in rope. Naomi, together with Kazuko and Junko, became known as the first three "Nikkatsu Queens," who made their marks during the heyday of the Nikkatsu roman porn era.
