The Exclusive Interview
What the viewers want to know...

Interviewer: Why did you choose to start modeling in the first place?

Lorabel: I chose modeling because I wanted to be able to express all the emotions I had inside of me.  Modeling was my form of expression.

Interviewer:  I read in a recent article in KoreAm Journal, that you are sterotyped in certain categories because of posing nude in Playboy.  Can you eleborate more on this?

Lorabel: Well, it's true.  Once you do "Playboy", there's never going back.

Interviewer: So, what is the confusion between the name "Lorabel Rey" and "Lorabel Han"?

Lorabel: Tough questions!  Well, "Han" is my legal name.  When I started modeling, I had no intentions of hiding that I was modeling from my parents, so I used my legal name for all of my assignments.  But, when it came time for Playboy, I had to tweek it a bit so that my parents wouldn't find out.  It didn't help though, they found out anyway.  

Interviewer:  Are you 100% Korean?

Lorabel:  Yes, 100%.  

Interviewer:  So, do other fellow Koreans give you a hard time about what you do?

Lorabel: It depends on which type of Koreans you are refering to.  The old' school folks do but the younger generational ones are much more supportive.   Thanks guys!!!

Interviewer: How was it like growing up for you?

Lorabel:  Hum...another tough one.  Well, I'd have to say that growing up for me was one of the toughest times of my life.  But, I had a special friend who experienced the same, and we went through it together.  I guess that's what makes us who we are today though.  Those rough times made me a stronger person.  For that, I am grateful.  

Interviewer:  What are your next plans?

Lorabel: I just graduated from college.  Go Trojans!!!  ...and I moved to NYC.  I needed a change in pace.  And quite a pace it is here.  

Interviewer:  Were you there during the chaos of 9-11???

Lorabel:  Luckily, no.  I came right after.  But the weird thing is that being in New York, you feel more apart of the tragic event.  

Interviewer:  Are you still pursuing modeling?

Lorabel: Most def!  I just signed with Giovanna and so I will be touring 2002 with them across the nation.  I'm very excited about that.  

Interviewer:  Well, thank you for your time and we wish you all the best.  Is there anything you'd like to say to our viewers?

Lorabel:  Only that I hope to meet you all one day.  XOXO
