LANE: This is the most radical thing a Kim has done since my cousin Nam got caught reading Maxim at summer camp.
Maxim, a men’s magazine launched in the UK by Felix Dennis in 1995, but based in New York City since 1997. It’s known for its photographs of prominent singers, actors, and female models. It has been criticised for its sexual objectification of women, and publishes a Hot 100 List – in 2002, #1 was actress Jennifer Garner, the first time someone had debuted in the top spot.
Nam is a very popular Korean boy’s name, which means “south”.
