Jessica Jung is finally a butterfly.
These are the words on the phone, not mine. It's 9 a.m. for me in New York City, 10 p.m. for Jung in Seoul, South Korea — not that time matters these days as we're both navigating a COVID-19 world from our respective countries (more on that later).
"I was like a little caterpillar back then," Jung shares. "Now, I know who I am. I found my comfort zone, so I'm like a butterfly." Her reference to "back then" started around 2007, when she was known simply as Jessica. The California native debuted at 18 with the beloved Korean group Girls' Generation. Her presence in the K-pop world for the next seven years was so major that a character in the Oscar-winning movie Parasite was named after her. In 2014, Jung left the group to focus on solo ventures, namely her fashion and skin-care brand Blanc & Eclare.( Collapse )
