Yes, that’s Shinozaki Ai in the lead picture as a gravure model, and yes she’s the one in the recent relationship rumor with Lee Hongki.
Thing is, she can actually sing a bit too … and in Korean.
For example, here’s her covering SNSD:
I believe she’s also currently pursuing a singing career, but no matter what she does, it’s the boobs that will draw the attention. Then again, that’s why she has all this attention to begin with, so the gift and the curse, I guess.
On a related note, the reaction to the aforementioned dating rumor from Korean (male) netizens was actually pretty predictable.
1. [+6,890, -369] More jealous of him than Lee Min Ho ㅋㅋ
2. [+4,120, 461] Please… please… leak us some material… Hongki-ya, I promise to be your fan so please..
3. [+3,541, -289] Never thought I’d want the Japanese side to do better in a Korean-Japanese relationship ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+980, -76] He just blows Lee Min Ho into the water with this… so jealous of Lee Hongki..
5. [+875, -45] Shinozaki Ai is… a G cup… a G cup, I tell you!
6. [+784, -50] Leave her alone… she needs to make her AV debut soon……
7. [+758, -44] GD-ya, if you’re going to date a Japanese, be like Lee Hongki and date one who loves Korea..
8. [+752, -50] Hongki, can you accidentally drop your cellphone in a taxi somewhere
The thirst, tho.
