Harisu (and others)

My first year in Korea, Harisu was always on TV, hosting programs, or singing. Her first album, Temptation, was released in 2001.

a photo of Harisu from an article about...
Transgender Singer to Do Menstrual Pad Ads

Harisu was born male, but underwent sex change surgery at 23.
Harisu is officially female: she had her ID changed to indicate that she was female.

She's a Lady
You have to admit... she's gorgeous!!

I remember during my first year in Korea,
I was told "there are no homosexualists in Korea."
