About a year ago I had the opportunity to sit with Sunisa and chat a little bit about nothing. It was just a little coffee shop visit before she went to her little birthday bash. We chatted about her being on the cover and seeing if it could happen. A year later, here she is. I caught up with her again to do a quick follow-up. She's definitely got a busy schedule, and any time she gave me was precious. She has to be somewhere at 10 and I will milk it as long as I can.

Sunisa was hard to get a hold of then and it seems things didn't change too much between us. I mean, if you exclude my extra 20 pounds and her increasing beauty. She's still got her quick wit and a spicy attitude that she backs up with her little hobby called Jiu Jitsu-you know, that grappling and submission martial art you see in those Ultimate Fighter blood matches. In fact, I'd venture to guess that her combination of exotic beauty, quick-witted attitude and skilled pain inducement techniques would be the ultimate bad evening for an obnoxious dude on a bad clubbing night.

Sunisa is only in her third year of import modeling and rsum-worthy backers like Yokohama and G4 television only helped her quick rise. This month we introduce a beautiful model that is sure to make you park your ride, sit back in your Sparcos and send you to an erotic dream world.

2NR: You are a Virgo. Do you know some of the traits of a Virgo?

Sunisa Kim: Yes, we Virgos are known to be very creative, loyal and helpful. Personality wise, were very intelligent and analytical, meticulous and reliable, modest and shy, just to name a few traits.

2NR: Since we've been going back and forth missing each other and trading voicemails-if you have plans with one, you better be flexible.

SK: I'm sorry!

2NR: I'll be bitter all evening.

2NR: So what is different with the girl I met a year ago? Still have the shoe thing going on?

SK: I'm more into my career, more business-minded and driven-not that I wasn't driven before, but now that I know what I want, I'm found more focus. The shoe thing was my philosophy on guys but the shoe thing for me, has cost me a lot of money and closet space

2NR: Does the man you're with gonna have some clean shoes?

SK: Of course! He's gonna be sporting Bathing Ape!

2NR: Wow. A "Bape" referance. Impressive.

2NR: So what's new with the 2006 Sunisa Kim.

SK: Well everything is new but don't you want to know what happened since the last time we talked? Like "What was big in '05"?

2NR: You are really controlling. That would be fun in some situations...like the bedroom...and during long driving trips but right now?

SK:

2NR: So... "What's happened since the last time we talked?" How's that?

SK: Good! I'm not working with kids anymore, I decided to go full time with my modeling. During my spare time I'm working for a creative design firm as their marketing/public relations representative-I mean "creative marketing design firm". I do public relations and help with marketing strategies and ideas

2NR: I'm guessing long days?

SK: No. I'm there whenever I don't have a modeling gig or auditions to go to and when I dedicate my weekends. But if you remember, I worked for a non-profit agency. We provided mental health and social services-mostly to the Asian community.

2NR: What about those poor lil kids that you left at the center? Don't you care about them no mo?

SK: I liked working with the kids but I decided to leave because I wanted to use my skills and abilities in business marketing-it's what I went to school for. PR was from modeling-I learned a lot from modeling. You see for me modeling isn't just the act of being a model-it's about learning from it and enhancing it to its fullest potential to help figure out later on what career I want to peruse. I've learned how to network, market myself, and learn aspects of business relationships.

2NR: How's Yokohama?

SK: I'm still working on another year with them. I wont know yet until the beginning of '06. Well as you know, I was their official campaign model-two years running now. Basically my duty is to meet and greet people during the Drift scene I make my appearance with all the Yokohama sponsored drift drivers, representing the company. When consumers or fans ask me about the tire product I answer the questions. I don't have too, but I choose too. I don't want to just stand there and smile. I like to interact with people and when I do I like to know what I'm talking about.

2NR: So what type of Yokohama tread pattern would be sexy for my 1992 accord? I want to attract as many chicks as possible.

SK: Yokohama tread pattern? It depends on what features you are looking for in a high performance

2NR: good.

2NR: Still have the same 5-year plan?

SK: What was my five-year again? What did I tell you before?

2NR: I think it was play around for a bit before you end up hooking up with Joel.

SK: No! My five-year plan is still the same, I'm overcoming obstacles right now but I feel like I'm on the right track.

2NR: What's the biggest obstacle you've had to overcome?

SK: Last year's obstacle was deciding on my career, my transition into full time modeling has given me more challenges to take on.

2NR: Why do you have a big ass bruise on your leg in the picture?

SK: You don't want to know. I bruise easily.

2NR: I assume it's from Jiu Jitsu?

SK: Okay Sherlock Holmes!

2NR: Better than Sherlock Homo.

SK: Yea it is...I've been practicing in bed. Just kidding!

2NR: I doubt that you can get a pillow in a serious arm bar. Is there a "sexy" Jiu Jitsu hold you can do on me?

SK: I don't know about "sexy" but with you it's going to be more about using the self defense techniques.

2NR: Damn. You are good. You used verbal Jiu Jitsu to put a stop to my advances.

SK: Well to conclude the Jiu Jitsu question, I'll probably apply an arm bar. I'll lock you in a very vulnerable position and make you scream for mercy...

2NR: Well... at least it involves close body contact.

SK:

2NR: measurements the same?

SK: Yup. 36 "D" right?

2NR: RIIiiiiight

2NR: Double-D-because of the double water bra thing you got going in the photos.

SK: Anything else? I'm hungry, Joel.

2NR: Me too-what are you buying me for lunch?

SK: Thanks again, Joel. You're a lifesaver we should do lunch sometimes-just call me up when you can.

2NR: Ha! I WILL call you but will you answer?

SK: I will!

2NR: It's weird. With all the argumentativeness... I feel like I'm slowly falling in love with you.

SK: Yea right.

2NR: I said "SLOWLY"

SK: At least you are falling.
