  • I was very quiet boy. My mom could just give me a pencil and papper and do house cleaning or cooking and I didn’t disturb her for whole day because I loved drawing and still. In the middle school I studied a lot, I tried do everything that I can. And of course my parents deserve a lot of credit. They did everything to make me better and to make me the best. And I’m very grateful to them. I studied musical instruments: saxophone, drums, guitar and I played in a cool jazz band that I really miss.

  • It’s definitely SooJoo. Park Soo Joo is my favorite model. I mean she is the highest level! I was very impressed when I saw her first time in 2014 when I visited Korea. It was a cover of Vogue.

  • As I said before the idea of working in the fashion industry came with SooJoo’s cover. I started studying photography after that but I always wanted to be on the other side of the camera. Sometimes I took like a selfies using the timer or asked my friends to shoot me. So I made a book and visited ESteem for audition.  / 말한것 처럼, 패션으로 들어갈 생각은 수주의 커버를 보고들은 생각이다. 그리고 사진술을 배웠는데 꼭 카메라 뒤에보다 앞에서 있고싶었다. 어떨때는 타이머를 써서 셀카를 찍고, 다른때는 친구들보고 나를 찍어달라고 했다. 그래서 책을 만들고 에스팀에가서 오디션을 했다.
