South Korea Has A New President, But His Hot Bodyguard Is Stealing The Show

After a year-long scandal surrounding South Korea’s former president, the country finally swore in their new leader, Moon Jae-in, this week. Moon represents a turning point for the country whose government was embroiled in a high-profile corruption scandal.

And that’s all well and good, but there’s someone in the new president’s camp who is causing a different type of scandal.

His name is Choi Young-jae, according to the Korea Times, but you may know him on Twitter as the new South Korean president’s hot bodyguard.

Choi is said to be a part of President Moon’s “handsome brigade,” a term coined by Korean media and given to the group of apparently good-looking individuals who have been selected to be the “attractive public face of the new administration,” according to the Korea Times.

Even in the attractive presidential bunch, Choi’s smoldering good looks have captured the internet’s heart. 

Twitter user Elena Yip, who was one of the first people to publicly praise the distractingly handsome bodyguard, even imagined a romantic storyline for Choi that would fit right into passionate Korean drama TV.

The way he’s always photographed staring sternly into the crowd makes for the perfect inspiration for fan fiction.

After pictures of Choi went viral this week, South Korean blog AllKpop.com did the internet a favor and unleashed even more photos of the now-famous bodyguard.

No one seemed to mind the additional eye-candy, but, sadly, that’s all that Choi can ever be for most people. Korea’s Special Warfare Command told the Korea Times that Choi is “‘unfortunately’ married and has two daughters.”

Fans of Moon’s bodyguard will just have to find other ways to get the man’s attention.

In addition to protecting one of South Korea’s most prized assets, Choi is also doing the world another favor: He’s obliterating the stereotype that Asian men are weak and unattractive. 

Thank you, President Moon, for introducing one of your finest protectors to the internet. Our collective thirst thanks you.

Casey Anthony’s Former Bodyguard Says He Thinks She Is Guilty ‘Without a Doubt’

When Casey Anthony was initially bonded out of jail in 2008, she returned to her suburban Orlando home. The case was at its dramatic high point: protestors and media camped outside the house. Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was still missing. Thousands of people were combing the area, looking for any sign of the girl.

But, according to a bodyguard who stayed in the home, Anthony was uninterested in the search.

Bodyguard Rob Dick spoke out for the first time on the podcast Allegedlyrecalling the “surreal” time when he was living inside the home with the Anthony family.

Almost immediately, Dick says he questioned Anthony’s behavior. “Here’s a mom in jail for the last 30 days, supposedly not knowing where her child is for 60 days now,” Dick recalled. “First question, what do you think it would be? ‘Have you heard anything?’ ”

Dick says that Anthony seemed uninterested in her daughter’s whereabouts. “She was just completely happy, excited to see her parents,” he said. “She asked, ‘What’s for dinner? Jail food sucks.’ ”

Eight years later, Dick says that he remains baffled at the attention given to the case. “There are lots of women out there that killed their kid. And I do say killed their kid,” Dick said. When one of the hosts asked Dick if he thought Anthony was guilty, he responded quickly: “Yes. Without a doubt. I think everybody knew she did it.”

But despite Dick’s belief in her guilt, a jury acquitted Anthony, who remains in seclusion in Florida. She is still described as one of the most hated women in America. Her attorney, Cheney Mason, said in September that his client had “gotten away with justice.”

The Backlash Continues

More than five years after Anthony walked out of jail, the public is still enraged at her acquittal — and at the fact that no one has been convicted of murdering Caylee. Dozens of Facebook groups still exist, dedicated to one goal: making sure that the woman who Nancy Grace once dubbed as “tot mom” doesn’t ever earn a penny off her crime by selling photos or interviews.

Anthony, now 30, is the subject of Scandal Made Me Famous, a show on the Reelz Channel that combines reenactments and exclusive interviews to tell the story of infamous crimes. An exclusive clip of the show is below.

In the show, insiders talk about Anthony’s bizarre behavior after her daughter vanished, including getting a tattoo and dancing on tables at nightclubs. The show explores possible scenarios of what may have happened to Caylee.

The Casey Anthony episode premieres on Saturday (9 p.m. ET) on the Reelz Channel.
