sex appeal?!?! Mr Man 2011?


The latest production in town is no other than Beauty Kings, a “scandalous dark comedy” by a probably the pioneer producer in Singapore entertainment scene, Dick Lee. Nope, we no nothing about the show but the advertisement seems to be extremely interesting! Sex appeal, current affairs joke, what else can we ask for?

The videos however caught our eyes as hey, what? selling bodies? When did “conservative” Singapore get succumbed into the beauty of the flesh? We just find it interesting that not only this production but many others, including Shokubutsu (yes! shower gel) has made use the image of bare bodies to attract consumers.

Doesn’t this kind of, uhmmm, contradicting of what Singapore stands to be “conservative”. Although the extent of using body image and flesh is considered extremely minor, doesn’t it lead to sex and a not-so-conservative perspective at the end of the day?

What do you say?
