'Modeling in Korea is far from easy': Model Choi Jin-myeong [VIDEO]



Living as a model, let alone getting into the modeling industry in the first place, is not as glamorous as it seems, according to Choi, who has been doing modeling work for some three years by now here in Korea.


He does auditions every single day during the show season, sometimes even three a day, and when he has a show coming up, he refrains from eating anything, even water. He also works part-time at night to compensate for his erratic earnings each year.

But he aims high, picturing himself being in the Dior show one day, which he says its his end goal, and keeps on moving forward regardless of the hardships he faces along the way, to make a mark in the painfully competitive Korean modeling industry.

Check out his video interview!
