In fact, Jang Yoon Joo is a model-turned-actress and she made her spectacular acting debut in 2015 through director Ryu Seung Wan’s film “Veteran”. Later, she appeared in the movie “Three Sisters” and the Netflix series “Money Heist”.
Jang Yoon Joo debuted as a model through SFAA Collection at a Fashion Show in 1997. Considered a legend in the Korean fashion industry, she shot lots of CFs and made her name known to the public while carrying out model activities. Jang Yoon Joo then expanded her spectrum by appearing in the 2010 “Infinite Challenge – Challenge Calendar Model” as a mentor and MC.
At that time, Jang Yoon Joo gained huge popularity for her easy-going and reckless image. Among all the famous stories about her good personality, the fact that she broke the bad practices in the model industry impressed many people.
When asked about the disciplines in the model world, model Han Hye Jin once shared, “There are no disciplines now. Ever since Song Kyung Ah and Jang Yoon Joo appeared, such a culture has never existed”.
Model Song Kyung Ah appeared on KBS Cool FM’s “Kim Sung Woo, Jang Hang Joon’s Mr. Radio” and explained what happened in person.
On the broadcast, DJ Kim Sung Woo asked, “I heard you and fellow model Jang Yoon Joo broke the bad habits of strict disciplines in the model world. Is that true?”. Song Kyung Ah explained, “Seniors used to scold juniors who work hard a lot. Jang Yoon Joo and I were also scolded a lot when we were carrying out activities as models. Yoon Joo and I found that not cool, so we decided that we would not do that in the future”.
When asked, “How harsh were the disciplines?”, Song Kyung Ah revealed, “There was a legendary scary senior. No one could sit down until that senior did. A new model didn’t know that fact so she sat down before that senior and caused a stir. That friend eventually quit modeling.”
