A young up-and-coming Korean-Nigerian model is making headlines in South Korea after breaking into the country’s fashion scene.
Han Hyun Min is a 16-year-old male Korean-African model who is defying the norms of the Korean fashion scene by being the first black-skinned talent to ever walk the local catwalks.
To break into the scene in Korea - That’s quite the accomplishment.
I always find conversations about racism, specifically anti-blackness in largely mono-racial countries a bit tricky. I think sometimes there’s a tendency to try to force it through an American lens, or even try to pretend it’s “worse” than it is in America. Like I know it exists, but as an American I can’t quite quantify it.
He’s a handsome young man. I wish him well and hope he has a successful career.
