Korean Baseball Cheerleaders

Unlike professional baseball teams in the United States, all of the teams in the KBO (Korea Baseball Organization) have their own professional cheerleaders, stirring up the fans on both sides of the park during games. At right is the captain of the LG Twins squad, Kang Ye-jin, who's currently the best-known pro baseball cheerleader in Korea and is expected to branch out to other avenues of show biz in the near future. Oh, and despite what Ye-jin's banner reads, her team didn't even make the playoffs last year and are currently in 6th place out of only 8 teams in the KBO, which means at every Twins game, she has her work cut out for her.

What follows is just a sample of the girls from each team in the KBO and the outfits they wear. (They usually change at least once during games.) The whole squad doesn't cheer at every game. There are usually four girls cheering at an average game but I've seen at little as two at some games and as many as six at others. Also, Korea isn't unique by having pro baseball cheerleaders. Japan does as well and There will be a follow-up here on their Japanese counterparts in the near future.

Asian Cheerleaders of the NFL

The National Football League Kickoff game next month will mark the beginning of the 2010 NFL season, so after checking some of the teams' player rosters for this upcoming season, I decided to check all of the the teams' cheerleader rosters.

Of the 25 NFL teams that have official cheerleading squads (7 teams don't), I did find several Asian ladies among the members, one being Duyen (above), who proudly high kicks and shakes her pom poms for the Houston Texans.

Friday the 13th Victim, Mrs. Voorhees

Going back to the original, here we have the climatic scene in 1980's Friday the 13th which the original killer, Mrs. Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer), attacks camp counselor Alice (Adrienne King) in a fit of psychotic rage to avenge her son Jason's death, some 23 years prior. However, Mrs. Voorhees ends up on the losing end of the machete, a tool that plays a key role in subsequent entries in the Friday the 13th franchise ....as does Mrs. Voorhees' head.

Na Ha-na

Unlike most of the top models in Korea these days, 26 year-old Na Ha-na did not gain her popularity from appearing at racing events and car shows. She made her debut three years ago when her mobile photo sets were downloaded to thousands of cell phones and computers across Korea.

A Google search will yield countless photos of Ha-na but (to fulfill some readers' requests at another site I contribute to) the shots that follow are the most risqué ones of her that are currently available online.

As of this writing, Ha-na has yet to make any big or small screen appearances, but if her popularity continues to grow, it should just be a matter of time before she does.
