American to Promote Franker Talk About Sex in KoreaAmerican to Promote Franker Talk About Sex in Korea - The Chosun Ilbo (English Edition): Daily News from Korea
"When I had my first period, my mother took me to a gynecologist. It's common thing in the States because menstrual cramps or irregular menstruation might have serious repercussions for your health," says Bianca Mobley, one of the panelists on KBS' "Global Talk Show: Talk with Beauties."
"I realized the cultural difference when I saw how many unmarried Korean women try to avoid going to the gynecologist."
The 20-year old from New York, a popular figure on the panel with her Gyeongsang Province accent and frankness, has been named goodwill ambassador for the Korean Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to promote a campaign teaching young Korean women about sex and reduce abortions.”
The KWB thinks this is great…Hmmm, Oh, wait Bianca is one of us, mixed-race types, a daughter of a Kyopo and an American. Is she accepted as a “true Korean”? How will that go over with the local, REAL Korean women?
“Born to a Korean-American mother and an American father, Mobley went to high school in New York and entered Yonsei University's Underwood International College in 2007 to study comparative literature and culture. As a single woman in her 20s, did she feel reluctant to take up the position? "I wouldn't have felt a bit of reluctance in the U.S., but I did feel some pressure because it was in Korea. But after some thought, I realized it was nothing bad or embarrassing," she says.”
She actually could have some impact but somebody please tell her to be careful and no criticizing, or she will wind up like her German beauty friend doing damage control. The KWB will ask his Korean ahjumas at Shinsegae for their opinions.
