I found a site linking to a pic in our gallery and commenting on it....
Lol, what is it about these women that is so interesting to men?! Itís just a girl directing traffic wearing in a rather non-descript uniformÖ (although the hat is quite cool!) I am guessing itís sexy somehow, but as a woman I really donít see why. Yet, as far as Western tourists (male) are concerned, these girls seem to be the number one most photographed ďattractionĒ in Pyongyang..! Theyíre all over Flickr for one!
That disciplined look? Alot of guys like a girl who takes charge.
I like the uniform and the fact sheís asian.
People have various tastes and the women from asia do have that quality of mystery that western men have been taught.
What a job, out there directing non-existing traffic, just for the hell of it. Itís quite appearent that at least she is eating well.
Cordelia, ďAlot of guys like a girl who takes charge.Ē
Other guys like a girl who is educated, trained, productive, motivated and well-disciplined. Thatís another interpretation of the attractiveness of a uniform-fantasy.
I think we need to know more about this girl. Where is her apartment? Is she married? How would she like to come to Jeju and ride horses? Sheís cool and sheís got a job!
This picture tells so much more to me than almost any other picture of North Korea. Hereís a striking young woman duty her daily duty with a cute hat and a white gloves gripping a bright yellow Whistle. More telling are her black patent shoes with a little bow on them to the perfectly aligned white socks over her undetectable nylons that make it seem like sheís from America in the 1950ís. Her perfectly ironed blue uniform and her high spit polish black belt across her waist shows how serious she takes her job. Add her authoritative arm band and her energetic raise of the traffic baton and we see something like from another planet, not just a northeastern asian country blocked out from the rest of the world.
Itís something otherworldly alright. North Korea is viewed so badly from the vast majority of the rest of the world. And rightly so with itís authoritative regime and atrocious human rights violations. North Korea is protected from so much wrong in the rest of the world; Serial killers, drug gangs, racial killings, wall street magnates, American Idol, and countless other abhorrent human behaviors.
Itís another world that would be so perfect if it just wasnít so wrong. http://rokdrop.com/2009/03/31/picture-of-the-day-pyongyang-traffic-girl-directs-no-traffic/
