Seoul, Korea - (Naked Ass Mess): As a punishment for baring her lissom naked body in the October edition of Vague Career magazine, Korea National Ballet's prima ballerina Kim Ju-won has been ordered to stand starkers in wooden stocks in Seoul's Gangnam-gu Square while residents pelt her with rotten fruit, bad eggs and used condoms.
Kim appeared topless in the magazine with her boyfriend Lee Jeong-yun, also a top dancer in the KNB, who wore only a pair or strategically-ripped flesh-tone tights.
His punishment has yet to be announced but is likely to be a public naked dunking into Han River before being tarred, feathered and eventually exfoliated using industrial-strength paint stripper.
The pair are appealing the punishment which was decided by the ballet company's disciplinary committee at a meeting on Thursday morning.
"As our Prima Ballerina Kim is obliged to get prior approval for any nude shots.
"That means performing several acts of artistic intimacy on the licensing committee and signing over any copyright issues for the accompanying video footage.
"Kim has flaunted this requirement and must now pay the price - or find herself another job."
The dancer, who recently received the prestigious Benois de la Danse international award last year, said today:
"Stuff them. It's my body."
