Yeon Woo Jhi – Korean Muscle Barbie

Picture1Yeon-woo Jhi is a Pro female bodybuilder with multiple major titles under her belt. Contrast between her cute face and impressively muscular body have also made her somewhat of an internet celebrity and earned her nickname “Muscle Barbie”. Looking at 34-year old Yeon-woo Jhi, it’s hard to imagine that she was once a skinny, frail girl suffering from panic disorder and struggling to overcome social phobia. But everything changed 14 years ago when she started going to a gym near her house, hoping to get stronger. She just wanted to stop feeling weak and never imagined that she would one day compete in major bodybuilding competitions, but as her strength and stamina increased, she got more passionate about fitness and eventually decided to show off her toned up physique on stage. Jhi won the first bodybuilding competition she ever entered, and that only inspired her to work harder. (nDy) 

Barry Eugene Carter, tipikal seniman multi bakat, juga paham bisnis. Saat awal karirnya mentok di era 60an sbg penulis lagu, penyanyi dan produser, iapun jadi pemandu bakat. Lalu membentuk trio Love Unlimited yg menghasilkan beberapa hits singel awal 70an. Kesuksesan yg dimanfaatkan untuk merilis album solo dgn julukan baru, Barry White didukung Love Unlimited sbg vokalis latar. Ternyata Barry diam2 naksir Glodean James dari Love Unlimited, disembunyikan akibat status Barry belum duda meski telah lama berpisah dgn Mary, istri pertamanya. Rasa galau dituliskan lewat lirik saban menjelang tidur meski tak terucap nyaris setahun, jadilah lagu Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love yg direkam tahun 1974. Barulah Barry menceraikan Mary untuk menikahi Glodean, serta dirayakan dgn dibentuknya The Love Unlimited Orchestra berikut lagu Love’s Theme. Latar belakang yg menjadikan lagu Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love seolah sulit untuk dibawakan ulang oleh penyanyi lain. Termasuk oleh Taylor Dayne saat meniru intro percakapan yg khas. Maka itulah pada video versi Darryl Hall ini kutampilkan sosok perempuan Korea “Barbie Berotot” sbg interpretasi cinta secara berbeda (nDy)
