Second Round of Lee Sa-bi Nude Pics to Go Public

Playboy model Lee Sa-bi's second series of nude photographs will make its debut on Friday through mobile phones.

The first series of nude images, themed the "four colored nudes," was released through the "Big Three" Korean telecommunication carriers on Feb. 19. This time, a new series of photos taken at New Port Beach in Los Angeles and Hollywood mansions, themed "Freedom," will be presented.

Although Lee Sa-bi's nudes were thrown to the public in the midst of the Lee Seung-yeon "comfort women nudes" controversy, about 300 thousand people logged on to see Sa-bi's nude pictures. This is contradictory to the current situation where Korean celebrities are postponing or even canceling the release of their own nude projects.

Because of this unexpected public reaction, Lee Sa-bi's people have produced in Korea an hour long special called "Lee Sa-bi's self-camera" to be released in early March together with photos taken in the United States.
