J: Hi, HOKK fabrica! I’m a sixteen year-old lifestyle and fashion blogger currently residing in Seoul, South Korea. I am a full time student at an international school but during my time off from studying, I like to take photos, read, and eat chocolate éclairs!
J: Fashion to me is a way to express my personality in a fun and quirky way.
Hf: Three words to describe your work?
J: 01 Exciting! I love my work and I’m so grateful to be doing what I love at such a young age.
J: 02 Eye-opening. Despite being sixteen, I’ve already learned so much about the industry thanks to some amazing people I’ve met. Every opportunity is a great experience to learn new things and I’m so excited for the knowledge I’ll get to acquire as I get older!
J: 03 Stress-relieving. I’m very passionate about fashion and the arts so I really value the time I get to spend working on my blog. It’s a great getaway from the stresses that come with school!
中： 03 舒緩壓力：我對時尚和藝術十分有興趣，所以我很珍惜所有用在部落格的時間，其實這也是一個可以讓我逃脫那些來自學校的壓力的好方法！
Some of the hottest, most interesting trends have been coming from Seoul lately. It’s definitely a place that flourishes with fresh, game-changing ideas.
Hf: Three words to describe Seoul?
J: 01 Nocturnal. Seoul never sleeps! ! I don’t think I could survive without my midnight MacDonald’s runs.
J: 02 Modern. Some of the hottest, most interesting trends have been coming from Seoul lately. It’s definitely a place that flourishes with fresh, game-changing ideas. There is never a lack of inspiration!
J: 03 Colorful. I never get tired of walking around the streets because there’s always something to see. Each alleyway is a whole new adventure on its own.
Hf: Why did you first start a fashion blog?
J: I first started my blog in the 8th grade as a simple hobby but over the years, it has evolved into a full-on creative medium where I like to share my artistic projects! Jinaesthetics used to be a space for me to write about how my day went and place to share interesting experiences I had with my friends but now I take it a bit more seriously, putting in more time to create quality content.
Hf: How does a normal day as a fashion blogger go like?
J: For now, it’s pretty normal! I wake up at 6:30 am to go to school and I come home at around 4:00pm so school occupies most of my days. I usually have extra studies afterschool so I get home around 10:00pm! I spend my weekends planning shoots, taking photos, doing homework and I occasionally go to meetings or brand presentations!
Hf: Where do you get inspiration?
J: I get a lot of my inspiration from Alexa Chung. She’s my ultimate style crush and I have to admit, I’m pretty guilty of stealing her outfits a lot of the times. I love her effortlessly chill, laid-back look and I’m a huge fan of her sense of humor! I’m also head over heels for Aussie fashion blogger Margaret Zhang! I think I can really relate to her, being a student and all. I also admire her determination and talents in many different areas (photography, styling, modeling, etc.)! Not to mention, she’s also a total babe.
中：我很多的靈感都是來自Alexa Chung。很喜歡她隨性有型的造型和她的幽默感！我也很喜歡來自澳洲的時尚博客Margaret Zhang! 我覺得我和她挺像的，都是學生。她的決心和才華，像攝影，造型設計和模特，都十分值得欣賞和學習！
Hf：Coffee or beer？
J: Coffee! Iced Americano please!
Hf: One last thing you need to know about Jina…
J: I really love traveling. I would really love to visit Morocco and Greece some day!
