maybe its not her? just how celebs here in the U.S dont really use facebook, myspace, twitter, etc., but have a secretary or w/e that does for them? cause really, im starting not to believe any of this anymore. it seems everyone in korea is playing video games 24/7, instead of going to work or school. i think it's just a publicity stunt to get attention and popularity. it wouldnt surprise me either. here in the U.S you already have celebs using video games to garner more attention, who dont know jack about them. you already got models/pornstars making money of videos games they have no clue about.

how comes you don't believe her? she won a competition didnt she? I guess the competition was live in asia with cameras showing her actually playing.

What is so surprising that a taiwanese model can be good at a game? Isn't it exactly the same as any other person with a different occupation?
Didn't some Doctor/Surgeon become the new world record holder for Donkey Kong? I mean surgeons have less free time then models right? So do you think that is fake as well?
