This recent Target commercial for Nature Made prenatal vitamins is entitled “Ravenous” and features actress, model and world class table tennis player, Soo Yeon Lee, who’s been featured here before. However, what hasn’t been featured here before, is a portrayal of a pregnant girl. I say “portrayal” because Soo Yeon is just playing a pregnant girl, who’s in a frenzy to satisfy her hunger cravings …. or just to make a mess in her kitchen. Said Soo Yeon of this role: “It was good practice to be a pregnant woman.” See more of her at her official website.

I don’t know why the ad department at Motorola cast an Asian girl as Little Red Riding Hood for their new Droid RAZR M commercial, but Erin Tjoe makes a great one as she shows how she uses hers to avoid the Big Bad Wolf. See more of Erin (who posted this video at her Youtube channel) at her Facebook and on Twitter.
As sort of a long-belated follow-up to my piece on Korean female celeb suicides, I wrote an interestingly morbid piece earlier this year on some of those ladies’ “lasts.” Included in that one is the above two-part scene the late Jang Ja-yeon did for the 2009 movie Searching for the Elephant (aka Penthouse Elephant). It was her last (and actually only) movie sex scene. Jang never got to see the film’s release or the the release of the only other film she appeared in, They Are Coming, as they both came out after her March 2009 suicide.
EDIT: The above video has been removed by the host. You can still view it, along with more “lasts” of Miss Jang and a few other lovely and late Korean female celebs, here.
This 30-second spot featuring actress Emily Chang (not to be confused with the journalist or web designer of the same name) as a quick-to-catch-on poker player, has been running on network TV in the US for the last several months. Emily is no newcomer to acting, with many credits and a New York regional Emmy Award under her belt, but this commercial seems to be on its way to achieving a sort of cult status and becoming what she’s best-known for. So far, anyway. Oh, for the US readers who are no doubt familiar with this ad; Happy Thanksgiving!
Michelle Ang is a Malaysian actress from New Zealand that is about to play a character in an MTV show known as “Underemployed.” Luckily for us, she also posed nude in some photoshoot when she was younger, so you can watch the new show and drool at your leisure.Stats:
This scene from end of the 1998 Japanese horror film Ring (aka Ringu, which is just the Japanese romanization of “Ring”), has been edited to show only Sadako Yamamura emerging from the well and right through the television screen. The odd shots of the male viewer watching it and dying of cardiac arrest have been cut out. If you want to see the face that he saw hidden behind that long, black hair, and feel you can handle it, see it after the jump ….but brace yourself.
Probably not what you were expecting, but this is sort of the “treat;” then 31-year-old actress Rie Inô, who played Sadako. (Sadako’s unobstructed face was never shown in the movie.) Miss Inô has seemingly disappeared from the public eye since her appearance in this film, and she now resides in the “Whatever Happened to..?” file.
I suppose the “trick” is on those who didn’t click on the “more” link, concerned that they would see something like this if they did.
