During the January 27 episode of 'Knowing Brothers', comedian Kim Young Chul brought up how Han Hyun Min was recently selected on 'The 30 Most Influential Teens of 2017'. He replied, "To become a model in Korea with an appearance like mine is not easy. But despite that, I stood on about 50 fashion shows in a year and in combination with working overseas as well, I think TIME gave me the spot on the rankings as a way to tell me to continue working hard."
"I started modeling when I was in grade 8 (second year of middle school). I uploaded a photo on SNS and was cast through that. I met my company's CEO at Itaewon and he told me to walk down the street. As soon as I did that, he offered me a contract," Han Hyun Min explained.
