Where is Yoon Young Bae from?- Early Life and Nationality
Talking about her childhood, Yoon was born in Daegu, South Korea, famous for its strawberries. She has not mentioned much when it comes to her parents, so we cannot be sure about it.
Also, her life growing up is something people have been dying to know. This also includes the school she went to. But we do know that it was during her high school days that Yoon started modeling.
Likewise, she is South Korean by nationality, while her ethnicity is Korean.
Korean Model of the Moment- Yoon Young Bae
As mentioned above, Yoon Young Bae started modeling when she was in high school. But some may misunderstand, but it was not Bae’s dream or passion to star as a model. In fact, Yoon never even dreamt of being a model, let alone walk in a Paris Fashion Week.
To make it clear, Bae was discovered by a Korean Stylist who introduced her to the modeling agency YGKPLUS. Just like that, Bae signed as a model under modeling management in 2014.
However, it was not until 2016 that this young South Korean model made her international debut. As expected, her doll-like features were instantly able to attract the attention of many.
The young model, 19 at that time, walked for Prada’s Fall 2016 Show‘s in a tangerine silk dress dotted with purple elephants. Right as she walked, one editor made a premonition that Yoon was going to be big, and well, the person was not wrong.
Long story short, soon after her runway show for Prada, Bae boarded a 14-hour long flight to New York for the house’s Steven Meisel-shot campaign. Then for Natalie Westling and again returned to Milan for Prada’s second exclusive walk.
It would be fair to say that that was the best debut as her work in Paris following the names Chloe, Kenzo, Loewe, Christian Dior, etc.
Moreover, her career has only gone forward since then, raking big names and fashion brands under her name. Maybe this season was her best as she walked for Chanel, Celine, Valentino, Marini, Versace, Fenty x Puma, Moschino, Fendi, Burberry, Coach, Michael Kors, Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger, and many more.
According to The Fashion Spot, Bae tied with Dutch model Kiki Willems for most bookings this spring 2019 season. At this rate, Yoon will be South Korea’s Top model and the favorite of the fashion industry.
Likewise, her work is not limited to the runway only, as gorgeous Bae has graced the cover of magazines and appeared in campaigns. Yoon appeared in a Diane von Furstenberg campaign, followed by Zara, Prabal Gurung, Tory Burch, and Chanel.
Also, as of April 2020, then 23 years old model was ranked as a “Top 50″ model by models.com.
Net Worth and Income
Despite having A-list clients and deal with top fashion brands, the net worth of this fantastic model has not made it to the public yet. Furthermore, not even her salary or income is mentioned in general as we speak.
But we do believe that being a supermodel and working with various legendary designers and brands does not go empty-handed. Hence, even without the information, we can assume her income to be somewhere around six-figures as of now.
Yoon Young Bae: Personal Life and Dating
Talking about her personal life, Yoon is a young girl who is just enjoying her life to the fullest. Being a celebrity and South Korean, her own life is always a hot topic among the netizens.
However, it was the same reason that made her wrap her life under the media. Hence, we have no idea if the young model is dating anyone or not. And with a hectic schedule, we hardly doubt she even has time for herself.
Nonetheless, Yoon is someone who positively views life. During her free time, Bae enjoys the day as much as possible, either in shopping the streets of Seoul or strolling around with her dog.
