Take me to Seoul please.

Korean girls are hot! Sounds weird doesn’t it? I feel the same way. I recall growing up in Korea and thinking, “damn this country smells, and the girls stink.” I dated one Korean girl once, that ended with an awkward kiss and a vow that I wouldn’t touch anything Korean that wasn’t barbecued and garnished with kimchi.

That has all changed with my rather late discovery of the 9 member South Korean girl group Girl’s Generation or in Korean, So Nyeo Shi Dae or SNSD. This group is worth a look, and if you’re into K-Pop, possibly worth a listen. Rather than pretend the readers of this post are even vaguely interested in their biographies, I’ve added these pictures from an exclusive photo shoot, though the details of where and when they were taken are foggy at best. I harvested these photos from 4chan.org, an Asian dominated file sharing site. If you’re able to deal with a bombardment of porn to get your of file of choice, I call it” harvesting”, then it’s a site worth dedicated time.

In the meantime, enjoy the pics, and if you are so inclined on knowing more about these ladies, hover your mouse over their picture for a biography memo. Enjoy!
