    South Korean netizens have been raving about her strikingly gorgeous features online.

    She is the second dark-skinned talent to ever walk the local catwalks in South Korea after male model Han Hyun Min, who made headlines after successfully breaking into the country’s fashion scene last year.

    While some have made reference to her being the female version of Han, Bae certainly has what it takes to carve her own successful path.

    Signed under SHSModel (Shinhwasa) Management, Bae has appeared in multiple local fashion shows. She is also prominently featured in the modeling agency’s website.
