    Who was that girl on But Can They Sing on VH1? Ling something? She would have made it pretty interesting. Someone please inform me, isn't being a Geisha not a good thing? Don't know much but what I hear men say about them. Sounds like they are just highclass hookers? Is this true? Enlighten me?

    But it wasn't supposed to be realistic. It's based off old Chinese myths/fairy tales. Much in the same way as movies about dragon-fighting knights are.

    One of a class of professional women in Japan trained from girlhood in conversation, dancing, and singing in order to entertain professional or social gatherings of men. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=geisha

    If you've read the novel Memoirs of a Geisha, it does expose the fact that sex was part of being a geisha; in fact, their virginities were sold to the highest bidder. Arthur Golden did extensive research for the novel and interviewed a former geisha for a good period of time so that his fictional novel would have some basis in reality. The geisha he interviewed received a lot of backlash for admitting that sex was secretly part of the job.

    She's looks pretty~ ButI still think they should of casted a JAPANESE actress to be a Geisha....not a chinese actress. That just defeats the who purpose of making this movie. Yea she's asian but NOT JAPANESE.
