Daul Kim in Nordstrom Catalog, February 2008

Daul Kim's look and personality (from what I read on her blog, i like to i fork myself) reminded me a lot of Yoko Ono in the early 70s -- a bit weird, a little anti-social and a whole lot rebellious. She is definitely NOT your typical Korean girl like Hye Park (who is Korean American) or Han Jin; nor can I imagine them socializing together outside of work. That makes Daul Kim an interesting girl.

Her personality comes through quite vividly in some of the editorials she's done. I bet a lot of photographers like that rebel chick in her. She would be great in an Anna Sui or Betsy Johnson ad campaign.

Here are some catalog photos from Nordstrom, February 2008. Photo #1 and #3 defines Daul Kim so perfectly. She's not the type of girl who would sits on a chair quietly.

um, how well do you think you know han jin and hye park to draw those conclusions?

Hye Park got married at a Marriot in Orange County. Draw your own conclusions.

I love your line "She's not the type of girl who would sit on a chair quietly.".

I like han jin but i feel like she's sort of nerdy type in modeling scene. she definitely goes to bed early for the shows next day rather than to socialize with people at the party every night during fashion week. actually i saw erin heatherton who is han jin's room mate saying han don't like partying. i appreciate han's hard working quality al lot though. :)

The comment above is so weird - if Han doesn't want to socialize, as in boozing and snorting coke all night with a bunch of dumb socialites, that makes her nerdy?
