Buzzing: Anger at South Korean star over woman's death

Anger at South Korean star over woman's death

Netizens are demanding that South Korean singer-actor Choi Si Won drop out of the drama Revolutionary Love, following the death of a businesswoman after she was attacked by his family's pet dog. On Sunday, tvN drama's online board was bombarded with comments claiming he should take responsibility for the incident by quitting the show.

Playboy's first transgender Playmate

French fashion model Ines Rau, 26, is Playboy's first transgender Playmate, appearing as the November centrefold in the first issue since the death of the magazine's founder, Hugh Hefner.

She first appeared in its May 2014 issue in a feature exploring gender identity. In an interview published by Playboy last week, she said participating in that spread changed her life.

"I took that chance, and then I signed with an agency."

Playboy's newest Playmate is not the first transgender woman to appear in the magazine. Model Caroline "Tula" Cossey was featured in the September 1991 issue.
