Markki said to SNN last night that he's a bit ashamed of his underwear pictures because he's proving himself as a musician and not supposed to come out sexy in an underwear.
Markki's sexy pics actually were first posted here on Mykiru ( http://mykiru.blogspot.com/2010/03/markki-stroem-on-pilipinas-got-talent.html ).
Markki's audition was shown on PGT Feb. 28 episode and when I learned that he modeled at the Bench event in the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday '09, I eagerly looked for it at the Flickr page of photographers Bruce Casanova and Jory Rivera even if it would cost me to look for it one by one out of a hundred pictures of male underwear models.
Now, the picture has been picked up and edited in other blog sites, scrapping off the other models in the background, to make it appear Markki posed for a private pictorial which was obviously not.
Markki also told SNN that as a musician, he'd be extra careful and conservative the next time.
Oh that's sad! Don't be ashamed Markki! You have something to be proud of!
Even SNN host Kris Aquino, who admires Markki a lot, encouraged him to flaunt what he has, citing Asian Pop Idol Christian Bautista, who posed sexy for Bench recently, as an example.
Markki was just among the unidentified models in the said fashion show and maybe in the next Bench fashion show, he'll be walking the runway already as one of its top celebrity endorsers.
