There are many south Korean fashion model working international area. Among them, My best pick is only one so far. I have been always thinking she looks cool and her iconic blonde hair made her truly special for her careers. And she already agreed with that through many interviews.
Let me introduce to you, THE She is Soo Joo Park.
Soo Joo Park, is a Korean-American fashion model and DJ. She is the first Asian-American woman to be a L’Oréal spokemodel. She is perhaps best known for her Chanel campaigns.
- Born: March 26, 1986, Seoul, South Korea
- Height: 1.78 m
- Education: University of California, Berkeley
- Hair color: Platinum blonde (dyed)
- Eye color: Brown
She said She got asked by casting director at vintage shop to think about being a model. She was then like, ‘Okay, Why not?’.
Park’s first fashion credit was appearing in a BCBG Max Azria advertisement in 2010. In her debut fashion week seasons she walked for Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Emporio Armani, Fendi, Rick Owens, Lanvin, and LOEWE among others. She appeared in Vogue Italia, Glamour, and Dazed editorials in 2012. She has also appeared in W, i-D, CR Fashion Book, Vogue, Paper, and Teen Vogue among others.
In advertisements, Park has been the face of campaigns for Michael Kors, MAC Cosmetics, Tom Ford, Redken, Gap Inc., DKNY, and Bvlgari.
She is ranked as a “Money” girl on models.com.
She played Sutra on the Netflix drama series Sense8.

About personal news, She and her photographer boyfriend Jack Waterlot have split. On January 9 2019, Esteem Models, her main korean agency, confirmed to Newsen, “It’s true Soo Joo and Jack Waterlot have broken up.”The agency stated the exact time and reason for their separation cannot be confirmed as it is their private matters.
Soo Joo and Jack Waterlot have dated for 2 years. In January 2017, Soo Joo accepted Jack’s proposal. However, in November, the model hinted at their breakup with an Instagram story post, stating, “2 years I gave you and I still couldn’t trust you, F*ck you Boy bye.”
I am still looking forward to her next career. As she challenged herself for acting with Netflix drama series Sense8, there will be definitely more filmography of her in the near future. Of course, I do expect to see her in fashion shows and campaigns as usual. It seems like She has got to be busy for her fans!
