Yeo Min-jeong (여민정) explained the circumstances leading to the accident breasts exposure on the red carpet, during the media interview.

I caught the line but it became more loose and I was exposed."

Although her shock and embarrassment were genuine, she did wave to the audience because she did not realised the accident initially. The audience mistaken that the breasts exposure was planned and were suspicions of her. After being surprised by the exposure incidents she decided to be more careful in the future when she wanted to do a daring pose. She did not want to get poor publicity due to such incident again.

TOKYO
HELLO Kitty is not a cat, the company behind Japan's global icon of cute insisted yesterday, despite an uproar from Internet users who spluttered: "But she's got whiskers!"

The moon-faced creation which adorns everything from pencil cases to pyjamas the world over is, in fact, human.

"Hello Kitty is a cheerful and happy little girl with a heart of gold," brand owner Sanrio said on its website.

The shocking revelation came to light when a Hawaii-based academic specialising in the epitome of "kawaii" ("cute" in Japanese) asked Sanrio to fact-check captions for an exhibition she was curating to mark the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty.

Christine Yano, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii, told the Los Angeles Times that she "was corrected - very firmly" by Sanrio that Kitty was not a cat.

"That's one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show," the paper quoted her as saying.

"Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. 
 
She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature."

And indeed, an AFP inquiry as to the status - feline or otherwise - of one of Japan's most famous exports confirmed her non-cat identity.

"It is a 100 per cent personified character," a Sanrio spokesman told AFP in Tokyo. "The design takes the motif of a cat, but there is no element of a cat in Hello Kitty's setting."

Her real name is Kitty White, he explained, and she was born in southern England on Nov 1, 1974. She is a Scorpio with blood type A.

She has a twin sister, Minny White, and lives in an unnamed suburb of London with father George and mother Mary, according to her profile on the Web.

Despite her whiskers and pointy ears, just like the rest of her family, Kitty has her own pet - a "real" cat named Charmmy Kitty.

Her life story has always been there, the spokesman said, adding the personification is meant to make her fans feel closer to the character "as a friend".

Asked about the worldwide reaction to the revelation that Hello Kitty is not a cat, the spokesman said: "I don't think anyone in Japan found it surprising."

A poll of Japanese people within the AFP Tokyo bureau found that not to be the case.

The spokesman explained that Kitty and her family were given no specific nationality but were designed to be living in Britain, because many girls in Japan had strong admiration for the Western lifestyle in the 1970s.
