Top model Han Hye Jin opened up about her looks that seem to oppose Korea's "ideal beauty"


On the July 18 airing of 'Abnormal Summit', Han Hye Jin brought up the issue regarding her looks to discussion, asking, "I am only called pretty in other countries. Am I abnormal?" The panelists responded with, "People in Korea don't call you pretty? You are very charming." She explained, "The word pretty and charming are very different. I usually prefer pretty over charming."

MC Jeon Hyun Moo then asked, "When was the first time that you were called pretty?" Han Hye Jin answered, "It was after 8 years of modeling when I was in New York." She also revealed she has been called pretty by her past boyfriends. 


It is true that Han Hye Jin's beauty is not defined by big eyes, double eyelids, and a high nose. What are your thoughts on Han Hye Jin's issue?

    As far as standards of beauty go, I know different people have different tastes. But to say this woman is not attractive and sexy is stupidity. She wouldn't be a model if she was ugly. Now, what do I consider beautiful? I thought I'd already made that clear. Her.

    model is usually not public pretty because model is more to exotic face...like her... and tbh, if she is not a model, she is just like a normal of a lot of korean face before plastic surgery... charming in her own way :)

    Honestly, even if she isn't your beauty standard it's ridiculous to call her ugly. She isn't ugly.

    I've noticed that faces Koreans consider pretty aren't considered pretty by Americans. Americans usually don't get why Koreans go crazy over Kim Tae Hee or Han Ga In or Suzy ㅋ on the contrary, they go for looks like Honey Lee or Han Ye Seul who have flashy features. Standards are different everywhere.

    People have crazy high standards these days. If you don't look perfect, you look like S H I T.
