Unfiltered Q&A: Do Jin Kim


This week’s model of the week goes to a model that is one of the hottest and freshest faces out there right now... I first saw Do Jin Kim back in January modelling in the Edward Crutchley show, and immediately then I knew he had something special. When the concept of the ‘Unfiltered Q&A’ began, Do Jin was one of the models I had in mind for the segment. Now, Do Jin is tearing up the modelling scene in New York and with him recently coming off a successful season at NYFW it was the perfect time to interview him. 

 

 

Here is what he had to tell us about himself when I interviewed him for a little ‘Unfiltered Q&A'...
