About Jae juNG

The ever-evolving career of a dancer turned model turned art director.

It all started with the intricate wallpaper plastered above his crib. Those very patterns inspired a life of various creative pursuits. First dancing. Not amateur dancing, but professional dancing in some of South Korea’s most well-known theater companies. What followed was a career in commercial modeling. But after five years of appearing in ads, he decided it was time to start making them. So he flew to the US and studied art direction at the School of Visual Arts. There he won both hearts, minds and awards. Upon graduation, he took a job at KBS New York, working on everything from German sports cars to American sensors.
