The Lewinsky Effect

NORTH KOREA SPY WON JEONG-HWA, who exchanged sexual favors for information from South Korean officers and who plotted to assasinate South Korean officials with poisoned needles, is awaiting sentencing.  The L.A. Times covers the story in considerable detail and publishes photographs of Won and her passport. 

On a personal note, I realize that standards of beauty are subjective in any culture, but if there’s apparently not much to be said for Ms. Won’s personality, I remain unable to explain her hypnotic effect on physically fit, gainfully employed, uniformed men.  Let us call it “the Lewinsky Effect.”  To make matters even more curious, one South Korean source says this is only “the tip of the iceberg.”

  1. She’s not exactly a hottie, but the men she slept with were probably homely and clumsy with women, easy prey for a honey trap. Not all military men are buffed or ripped. I’ve seen overweight US service members and conversely, some scrawny Koreans in uniform.

  2. Allow me to lower the level of this conversation another step by mentioning the widespread commercial availability of drop-dead gorgeous women in Korea. Still wondering about Park’s competitive advantage, unless these guys were just hungry for attention.

    Or, too many of us just think with our dicks.
