Song Kyunga Facts

  1. She grew tall in middle school. She would walk around hunched over because she hated hearing the phrase “you’re so tall!” from people.
  2. Song was discovered on the street by a South Korean fashion designer named Il.
  3. To correct her hunched posture, her mom sent her to a modeling academy.
  4. At the age of 20, she used an old Louis Vuitton bag to add characters from the Snoopy comics and experiment with bag design.
  5. Song made her modeling debut in 1997, while still in high school. Her sister did her eyebrows for the ID picture.
  6. Because modeling was a short-term career in South Korea at the time of her debut, she started learning English as a fail-safe.

  8. In her 1st year as a model in New York, she appeared in 36 fashion shows.
  9. Song kept a diary about her day-to-day activities, which she later published to inspire up-and-coming Korean models.
  10. She always had a penchant for drawing and painting, and later earned ceramic making. This led to several exhibitions of her work.
  11. She stated there is a slight discrepancy between her real and officially listed height of 5 ft 10.5 in or 179 cm, but not what it was.
  12. One of her long-time friends is a fellow model Han Hye-jin.
  13. Song received the “Best Model Award” from the Fashion Photographers Association in 2001, Model Center in 2002, and The 2nd Korean Models Association in 2006.

  15. She launched a collection of bags and scarves named 1st Rumor in 2014. At a later date, she launched a 2nd collection simply titled 2nd Rumor.
  16. During an episode of the TV series Running Man in January 2014, she stated that in her opinion, singer Kim Jong-kook talks too much and is timid.
  17. She was the 1st model of Korean descent to appear in photoshoots published in Vogue Italia, London Times, Numero, Flaunt, and Cosmopolitan USA.
