I'm interested in Korean pop culture: K-pop, K-drama, K-film. I've seen previous questions about specific recommendations if music and movies. I am checking those out. There is so much material, I'm trying to get a broader perspective. [more inside]

I'm trying to remember a web-video series that was mentioned on the blue a couple of times in the last year or two. All I can remember is that they were hosted by a woman (maybe light brown/blond hair...?) who was giving a funny/feminist take on various things in pop culture. Does that ring a bell with anyone? I think maybe one of the topics she talked about was yogurt commercials aimed at women. I know, not much to go on!

I'm looking to generate a cross-cultural
list of famous young talents (singers, actors, dancers younger than ~20, from any time in history) that are/were widely considered to be precociously charming. Idols and starlets, if you will. Is/was there a Russian Donny Osmond? An Indian Justin Timberlake? Who's the quintessential Morning Musume girl?

At 2:15 of this brief clip
, the interviewer asks Elvis Costello if he wants to defend what he'd said in Newsweek about Boston (the band, I'm pretty sure, given her exchange with Nick Lowe starting at 1:58). I've been unable to figure out on the Google just what was said about Boston; can you tell me?
