Inside the life of a Korean student and fashionista.
Korea doesn’t allow too much room for creative thinkers, but Jina Kim, born and raised in South Korea, found her own creative methods. You’ll find this Korean fashion blogger super cool and on-trend! District Gal met this fashionista on WhatIWear, a Fashion Bloggers Network. She has managed to make her own fashion blog on Naver (Korea’s Google) and YouTube in English.

Tell us about yourself.
“I’m Jina Kim, a Korean fashion blogger. At day, I’m just a normal student who is interested in fashion. Currently, I’m studying Communication and English literature at Sogang university. However, I do so many other things at night. I’m working as a fashion journalist at CJ E&M and Naver, which are big companies in Korea.
Also, I had chances to spoke in both Sook-myeong and Taegu University about fashion, and it was a great experience. I have many jobs, but my main title is always ‘a fashion blogger’. It’s been about 3 years since I started my blog, and I mainly post my personal style photos. My fashion style changes everyday by what I see and listen. I get inspirations mostly from movies and dramas. When I was 20, I was so obsessed with the character ‘Effy’ from English drama ‘Skins’, so I used to wear a thick chain necklace with mesh stockings. Since then, I have always tried new styles. Although I try new things everyday, I have my own rule for fashion. I wear clothes with interesting details like fur, studs, or prints.”
