Korea’s Next Top Model Winner Hyun Ji Shin Strikes a Pose


After winning Korea’s Next Top Model Season 4 in 2013, Hyun Ji Shin’s career took off. She was signed by IMG and has since appeared on the pages of magazines like W Korea and most recently walked in shows for designers like Chanel, Jacquemus, Isabel Marant, and Public School. It’s rare to see reality show talent go so far so fast, but Shin has proved her seriousness to the global fashion market. Here, photographer Bryan Huynh shows the many sides of South Korea’s favorite face.
