Seung Hoon Cho (Mr. Cho) and Young Hie Cho (Mrs. Cho) emigrated to the United States from Seoul, Korea in 1964 to start a family. They had a daughter, Margaret, in 1968 and then a son, Hahn Earl, in 1975. They didn't plan on getting into show business. Before becoming television stars, they ran a snack bar in a bowling alley, then owned a bookstore in a very gay neighborhood. They don't like tattoos but they really love Margaret and are planning to adopt Selene Luna very soon.
Selene Luna is a one-of-a-kind entertainer with a look and style all her own. At 3'10", Luna is a small package with a very big presence. She is a talented performer with timeless sex appeal that makes her equally viable as a vintage Hollywood glamour girl or a modern music video vixen. She is part burlesque star and part rock and roll queen. Luna is a performer who embodies the eccentricities of 1930's screwball comedies, combining a keen sense of comedic timing with smoldering sensuality. She is a larger than life personality, with a body of work, which is as impressive as it is eclectic.
Luna began her career performing among Hollywood's eccentric artist community. She cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues, doing stand up comedy and acting in independent films. She quickly became a darling of Hollywood's underground scene.
True to her roots, Luna has built a career performing in cabarets and burlesque, and is a well known performer in this scene. Miss Luna was a featured performer in the Velvet Hammer Burlesque, the internationally renowned troupe, which is the originator of the current burlesque revival. As the world's only little person burlesque dancer, Luna has performed internationally, has been the subject of numerous news features and documentaries, and has shared the stage with legends of burlesque such as Tempest Storm and Tura Satana. Luna's burlesque background has infused her performing style with a strong sense of theatricality, improvisation and comedy.
Luna has crossed over to mainstream film, television and print work. She has worked with respected directors including Stephen Sommers, Dean Karr and Peter Berg. Her television work includes national Snapple and Cingular Wireless commercials, and music videos for some of music's biggest acts, including Madonna, Marilyn Manson, Crystal Method and Billy Talent.
Miss Luna's striking look has taken her to the world of high fashion as well. She has been featured in numerous international fashion editorials. Luna has modeled the fashions of designers such as Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, and has posed for photographers as David La Chappelle, Matthew Ralston and Austin Young, in addition to working on stage under the direction of legendary couture designer Thierry Mugler. Luna has carved a niche for herself and continues to break the stereotypes of little people in entertainment. She is a comedic actress with sex appeal and leading lady flair. Selene Luna is an up and coming presence in Hollywood, who continues to bring her magnetic appeal to broader audiences. She plans to shake things up in a big way in Hollywood.
Most recently, Luna successfully performed two sold-out solo shows in Los Angeles, Pocket Venus and Say It to My Face! Miss Luna won critical notice for her featured performance in prolific comedian Margaret Cho's Off-Broadway variety show, The Sensuous Woman.
This year, Luna can seen co-starring alongside Margaret Cho in Cho's new VH1 comedy series, The Cho Show. Luna can also be seen in a supporting character role in Lionsgate's 2009 release of My Bloody Valentine 3D feature.

Fashion stylist to the stars, Charlie Altuna, has been creating the looks for top celebrity and music stars since the early 90's. Mr. Altuna has worked for editorial magazines such as Allure, Interview, Esquire, Marie Claire, Elle Magazine and many more. His celebrity and musical clientele list reads as a who's who of the industry including Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliot, Kylie Minogue and Sean 'Diddy' Combs. Charlie has also been the host stylist for "America's Next Top Model", E Network's "Style Me Famous" and E's "Joan River's Red Carpet" for the Oscars.
John's strength and expertise comes from total dedication to his craft, which can be pinpointed from his start in the business at the tender age of 18, when he was a fashion obsessed high school trendsetter. All the years of being a "night clubbing trendsetter" progressed into wanting to find a larger outlet for his creative talents, beyond just the looks he had created for himself. So he enrolled in beauty school where his natural talents earned him notice from his teachers, earning him "star" pupil status. His fascination with the "Old Hollywood Glamour" styles was keen and would be the basis of his overall vision. While in school John started to apprentice under hair artist David Cordova, who taught John over the next few years how to cut and color in the "Vidal Sassoon" style. After several years of apprenticing under David Cordova, John struck out on his own at another high-end salon named Yutaka. As he started to build up his clientele base he decided to look for an agent to take his career to the next level. He met with an agent named Charmaine who at the time was the head of "The Oribe Agency". Even though John had a limited portfolio with only a few pictures, Charmaine signed him on right away based on his passion and promise in the industry. He started taking big jobs one after another, often on just word of mouth.
His main focus during these early years was to build up a strong creative editorial portfolio, working with the top photographers, such as David La Chappelle, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Ellen Von Unwerth and models (the Girls - Christy, Claudia, Cindy). His work has been published in all the major fashion magazines, including the national and international editions of Vogue, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Elle and Cosmpolitan. Some of the advertising clients he has worked with are Tommy Hilfiger, Candies, Coca Cola, Helene Curtis, Martini & Rossi, Skyy Vodka, PETA, Salon Selectives and Physician's Formula. After he was established editorially, John started building up his celebrity clientele. He has strong personal relationships with major celebrities such as Dita Von Teese, Margaret Cho, Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton who are collectively know as "his girls". His forays into Film, TV and Music Videos have included working with directors such as David La Chappelle, David Fincher, TV Shows as Oprah Winfrey, Jimmy Kimmel and a long list of music videos for major artists such as Janet Jackson, Jay-Z, Marilyn Manson, and Mariah Carey. He has also worked on the looks for the "Eyes on Me" Celine Dion tour and the upcoming "Sticky & Sweet" Madonna tour.
John Blaine is set on taking his career to the next step, which is to step out from behind the scenes to in front of the camera, establishing himself as a personality hair artist. He is also currently working on a product line and exploring opening a salon, set to open within the next couple of years.
On his personal time (rare as he is always working) he enjoys spending time with his friends, family and his dogs, a.k.a. his "kids".
