Han Jin Editorial for China Vogue, January 2008

OMG, I am sooooo in love with this editorial. Han Jin really ROCKS in these photos, especially photos #1, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 10. Photo #5 was used in her Spring/Summer 2009 show cards.

Again, BRAVO to China Vogue for using a Korean model. Korean Vogue needs to step up to the plate and include other Asian models in their pages. If you want your magazine to have an international appeal, you need to be more inclusive. Yeah, I know...we don't read Korean but we still want to see the photos.

Model: Han Jin
Editorial: Memoirs of Tartan
Magazine: China Vogue, January 2008

it seems Korean magazines prefer actresses to models hailing from China. personally I love Tang Wei's cover of W Korea few months ago the most among Chinese faces covered Korean magazines. she's awesome.

Vogue Korea uses Korean models to represent in their terms of "east meets west. east is west" but i'm assuming its more for their korean agencies monopolising the market.

More and more korean readers are sick and tired of korean models, they want the vogue nippon counterparts.

Like the commenter said above it is true that most Korean magazines tend to use more Chinese and Japanses actors rather than other asian models on the cover and editorials. Its a different marketing strategy.
