Transgender star returns to the air


Ha Ri-su

Ha Ri-su, a Korean transgender entertainer, will return to local television as a host for the first time in seven years.

The show, tentatively named “Ha Ri-su’s Sexual Night,” will be aired on adult cable channel Spice TV starting in July.

She will invite guests who are questioning their sexuality and also accept expert commentary from medical professionals.

Ha has already taped four pilot episodes, and Spice TV will decide whether to produce more episodes depending on viewership.

The star’s last show was “Introducing Ha-Ri-su’s Boyfriend,” which aired on KM in 2006.

Meanwhile, Ha finished performing in a musical named “Drag Queen” early this month.

The show featured men dressed up as women in heavy makeup.

Ha, who debuted in the local entertainment industry in 2001, was the first person to change her gender on her resident registration documents. She said she took a break from local TV to start other businesses in Korea and overseas.
