Some news from South Korea. May I suggest Ms. Kim try using a digital camera in the future?
Hat tip- Marmot's Hole who said 'Don’t ask for a link to pics — I can’t find ‘em, and God knows I tried. Not that I’m expecting much — she’s a ballerina, after all.' Besides all Kimchi recipes look alike after a while.

The Korea National Ballet's prima ballerina Kim Ju-won will have her salary docked for one month as punishment for appearing nude in a fashion magazine.
The company's disciplinary committee decided on the measure at a meeting on Thursday morning with Kim present.
"As a member of the Korea National Ballet, Kim is obligated to get prior approval for any actions she may take outside, and thus her independent act deserves disciplinary action," the ballet company said.
"However, we have decided on just a one month salary reduction since this was the first time she has caused any kind of controversy. She had been a model member of the company until now, making great contributions to the company and to the development of Korea's ballet, even receiving the prestigious Benois de la Danse award last year," the KNB added.
Kim appeared topless in the October issue of Vogue Korea magazine with her boyfriend Lee Jeong-yun, who is also a top dancer in the KNB.
"A dancer conveys beauty through her body, but it's not always easy to know exactly how one's body looks. That's why I decided to do a nude shoot," Kim said in an interview with Vogue. "I wanted to leave a record and be able to remember how my body looks."
The magazine said Kim's nude photos were the most popular item in the October issue. "It is hard to understand why people make an issue out of an expression that has become common in modern art," the magazine said.
