• Have you seen the Korean movie "Shiri"?

    One of my friends is a Japanese actress, and her boyfriend owns a website about martial arts movies and techniques. They own many, many movies.

    One of my friends is a Japanese actress, and her boyfriend owns a website about martial arts movies and techniques. They own many, many movies. A couple of weeks ago, I went shopping with her, and she bought some DVDs. I was amused when she took one from the shelf. It had a photograph of an Asian lady in a gown with slits at both top and bottom and a city scene behind her. Near the center of the box was "SHIRI" in large white letters across the lady's body. In Japanese, "shiri" means "buttocks, bottom, butt", so I laughed and commented about that. She laughed too and said it is a Korean movie that sounded interesting from the brief review on the back of the box. We both speak Japanese and English, but neither of us speak Korean, so we did not know what "shiri" means in Korean. Her boyfriend speaks some Korean, so he might know. I may have a chance to see the movie eventually, but until I do, I want to ask if anyone can tell me something about this movie and what "shiri" means in Korean. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

  • Do you think Rina Akiyama is really the "Oishiri Queen" of Japan?

    Rina Akiyama was born September 26, 1985. Her height is 5'-4.6", she weighs about 103.4# and has 32.7" bust, 23.2" waist and 33.5" hips with exceptional development of her "shiri" ("buttocks, bottom" in Japanese). She is the subject of calendars for 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 with 14 large photos of her on... show more
    Rina Akiyama was born September 26, 1985. Her height is 5'-4.6", she weighs about 103.4# and has 32.7" bust, 23.2" waist and 33.5" hips with exceptional development of her "shiri" ("buttocks, bottom" in Japanese). She is the subject of calendars for 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 with 14 large photos of her on each of them. I think she has some rivals I shall now list for Best "Shiri" of Japan title. Miyuki Komatsu, born 6/5/71, 5'-0.6", 96.8#, 33.1"/22"/32.3"; Hitomi Yuki, born 8/31/73, 5'-3", 105.6#, 34"/22.8"/34.7"; Miyuki Kobayashi, born 10/10/91, 5'-0", 94.6#, 32.6"/22.4"/32.6"; Chiaki Kuriyama, 5'-4.2", 101.2#, 30.3"/22"/33.1"; Risa Koda, born 10/10/85, 5'-4.2", 103.4#, 32.3"/22.8"/33.1"; Natsuki Ozawa, born 4/19/72, 5'-2.2", 97.6#, 30.7"/22.8"/32.7"; Kumiko Takeda, born 8/12/68, 5'-2.2", 99#, 33.5"/22.8"/32.3"! Kumiko Takeda and Natsuki Ozawa starred in the "Zero Woman" 3 and 2 movies respectively in 1996 and 1995. Chiaki Kuriyama has been in the USA movies "Kill Bill, Volume 1" (as Go Go Yubari) and in "Into the Sun" with Steven Seagal. Miyuki Komatsu's best-known movies world-wide are "Death Note" 1 and 2 as policewoman Sanami-san. Do you agree with the publicity that says Rina Akiyama has the best "Shiri" in Japan, or do you think one of the girls I listed or others not listed can match Akiyama-san?
