Clara Lee’s First Pitch
On May 3rd, 2013, Clara Lee did the first pitch at the baseball game that made her become an overnight star, literally over a single night.
Clara caused quite a stir when she did the ceremonial first pitch for the baseball game between the Doosan Bears and the LG Twins. She wore a short Bears uniform that revealed her abs and tight striped pants. She revealed her beautiful and sexy body in that uniform that brought the nickname “Sexy Pitch.”
Clara Lee explained how she became a famous actress, “After I pitched, my name popped up all over the real-time search engines. Being recognized at last, I felt my sorrows being washed away. I posed for CFs and earned 3x more in my earnings. I was so busy that I didn’t even notice time was passing by.”
Clara Being the Sexy Icon
Known well due to her many scandals, still, Clara Lee is also famous for being a sexy icon in Korea. She has a beautiful face like a goddess with an attractive body that automatically makes her part of the generation of Hyori. Contrary to the beautiful face, Clara possesses the body of fiery, glamor that the Korean media consider her as one of the sexiest faces in the kimchi country. Not stopping there, the beautiful Lee is called the “sex bomb” of the Korean movies.
Clara Lee stood in rank two on the poll of the most beautiful woman in Lifestyle magazine in 2014, beating Angelina Jolie. After her first pitch on the baseball game between the Doosan Bears and the LG Twins in 2013, suddenly Clara became the new sex symbol of South Korea.
Clara Lee’s Scandal
Clara is known in South Korea not only as a “Sexy Icon” but also as a very scandalous celebrity. One time she offered a public apology admitting having lied several times in an attempt to cover up past mistakes. Her appearance on the show came after a self-imposed exile from the TV screens and social networking websites for days in an apologetic move. Yet it seems that there are still many disappointed and even angry fans.
“She made an apology on a comedy show with no feeling of remorse showing on her face. Are you kidding me?” an SNL Korea viewer wrote on the program’s online bulletin board. Another viewer echoed the same sentiments, saying, “I felt no sincerity from her. This is another smokescreen.”
Clara responded to her lying controversy and answered the netizens’ comments. She wrote, “I understand if you say you were not entertained, but if you say I was not being truthful it is a lie to say I like chicken and beer because I’m with good friends in a nice atmosphere, even though I actually don’t like chicken and beer? Is it a lie to be good at yoga when I was never taught it? Is it a lie to say I never dated another celebrity because I didn’t want to mention my past celebrity boyfriend?” She also pointed out that she was not used to the South Korean environment, but she will try harder to learn the culture and correct her behavior.
