Two Malaysian siblings appeared on South Korean talk show Chit Chat of Beautiful Ladies. The Dec 30 episode was on handsome men and beautiful women.
Poh Jing Chieh and Poh Khay Inn, both of whom are studying in Korea University, drew much attention during the show. Jing Chieh, the elder brother, is a 4th year mechanical engineering student while Khay Inn is a 3rd year chemical and biological engineering student.
The episode focused on “hoonnam” or handsome men around the world. While the men on the show were beating their chests about how charming they were, one guy drew the ladies’ attention. He was Jing Chieh.
The host of the show asked Khay Inn, “Do people say Jing Chieh is handsome?”
She replied: “Yes, many people say so. Sometimes, I hear people go ‘Wow, that guy is cute!’ upon seeing him at campus and I would proudly say ‘He is my brother.’”
The host then asked Jing Chieh, “Do people also say that your sister is pretty?” He made everyone laugh by replying “No”.
Chit Chat of Beautiful Ladies is struggling with low ratings after a controversial episode on Dec 6. One of its Korean guests said that “guys under 180cm are losers”.
