Super Model

Asia Model Festival Awards
January 15, 2009

There is an excellent article by Javabeans posted at Dramabeans regarding this event.

I have referred to Oh Ji Ho as Super Model here more as an honorary title than a reality.

Modeling has been a longstanding occupation for him, in fact however, he is a man for all seasons, which made itself more and more evident as he branched out into other areas (acting, singing, spokesperson, amusing TV guest, dedicated amateur baseball player, and so on).

At this point, his obvious love for baseball has been dominant in various commentaries, and at his own blog.

But aside from steady modeling work with Tremolo, he has been active in charity functions as a model also,

and on January 15, 2009, culled an award at the Asia Models Festival Awards as a Model Star. I’m not sure what makes Han Ji-hye and Oh Ji Ho Model Stars more than other actors getting awards but there you have it.

After reading the news articles (translated insanely by automated service) I was confused. After reading Javabeans’ easy to understand commentary, I am still confused. But that’s Korea for you. You gotta love it.

I grew up hearing a show business axiom: Any publicity is better than no publicity. Whatever gets your face in the news is getting your face in the news.
