Model Han Hyun-min to Appear on JTBC Reality Show "Stranger"

20180212001059_0.jpg

High school student model Han Hyun-min’s daily life will be revealed on JTBC show ‘Stranger’. He will appear on the show on Saturday, February 24th. Han, who was born between his Nigerian father and Korean mother, has been actively working as a model since at young age. Last year, he was also selected as one of the ‘30 Most Influential Teens of 2017‘ by TIME Magazine.

Although he is one of most-wanted models in Korea right now, Han Hyun-min will show his life as a typical high school kid on the show. After school, he would go out with friends and eat Korean street food, or he would use teenage slang words that are popular among teenagers.

He also revealed his apartment that he is currently sharing with new models. Han has been living in both the apartment and his real house that he lives with family.

The episode will air on the 24th at 4:40 P.M. (KST)


I think it just aired in Korea a few hours ago, the jtbc YT already has clips up. But none of them are subbed, so I can't post them here.

Do models have company housing like idols do?

I recently watched his radio star episode, he's a cute kid, I'm glad he's growing more successful in Korea.

Yeah it's like idol housing. Most are from the same agency and they share a small house or apartment.

Thanks for the info! Do you know if it's a similar system where the agency can withhold earnings from models and add it to a debt to pay for rent or can they live there for free as long as they work for the agency?

yep. usually that's how it works in most places. this doc is about the industry in china but it's similar across the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGK8I5m29tg

There are fees that the agency takes from the model for housing,styling and so on.

I love this kid. Not only is he breaking barriers but he also is showing something we don't get presented a lot. He is biracial but has dark skin. Many think that's not possible. They think biracial people all have light skin and that isn't always the case.

you raise a rly important point! a lot of my relatives on my dad's side are mixed (as am i) and we come in all different skintones. my dad's youngest brother and sister are half samoan (my dad is full black) but they both don't ~look mixed at all, but they totally are. family photos are always kinda funny because none of us look like we're all related to each other lmao.

This kid is adorable and I wish him all the best. Does anyone know if he's close to the Nigerian side of his family?
