Model of the Week: Stunning Yujin Seo

Yujin Seo. Heard of her? No? Well, if you’ve been following Seoul Fashion Week this past week, you’d know that a new crew of Korean models dominated. According to Vogue, This particular 17-year-old model has taken the local fashion industry by storm with her one-of-a-kind face.

Seo claims she fell in love with the modeling industry after watching Korea’s Next Top Model Season Five. It was after that, that she enrolled in modeling classes and was selected by Esteem’s management team just a year later. Today, she has a full-time modeling career and is even able to keep up with her schoolwork. Before touching down on the runway, she was already working with top photographers of Korea, doing photo-shoots for  editorials in Korean Vogue and Elle. 

Even though Korea has been on a high for models with a “V-line” shaped face, Seo’s unconventional and natural jawline has won fans. In her mind, it is the strength and changeable nature of her features that sets her apart from the other models: “I think my face fits a lot of different visual concepts,” she goes on. “I can convey a lot of different things; when I look at pictures, I can see a lot of different sides of me.”

So young and already so successful! We loved seeing Yujin on the runway and hope to see more of her in the coming years!
