My public name "Sooyong" comes from my Korean background, as I am half-Black and half-Korean. I have been working as an English teacher in Japan since 2010. Modeling is a hobby that I hope to keep up while I'm here.
I choose to be somewhat modest in my appearance--that means I do NOT do nudes, implied nudity, swimsuits (unless they're one-piece suits, haha), lingerie or other types of racy photos, so please do not ask me about it. I know that the modeling world is made up of such images, and I also know that's "where the money is," but I want to stay true to myself and show more fashion and style as opposed to skin. I work as an elementary school teacher so there are some things I cannot and WILL NOT do!
I am mainly free on weekends and holidays. I can travel to Kobe, Osaka or Kyoto on weekends but it takes 1-2 hours of travel time and at least 2000 yen round-trip, so if you'd like to schedule a shoot please let me know at least 2 weeks in advance.
COMPENSATION: Since I'm still not too experienced, I'll be glad to do TFs, especially if it is centered around fashion. Also, I live quite far from the city, so reimbursement for travel expenses is also acceptable. We can make arrangements on a case-by-case basis!
