by Ryu Jeong-hyun

"I believe I am better than her in all aspects. What part of her is better than me?" she said.

"The lady, who puts on garments worth 400 million won ($440,000) has made an appearance on the program," a staff member said.

"She does not work but collects highly expensive luxury products with money solely provided by her parents," he added.

According to, she lives in Nonhyun-dong, in the southeastern part of Seoul, and her room is fully packed with high-fashion brand products such as bags (perhaps Hermes) made of ostrich leather, jewelry, garments.
