I usually wake up around 10 every morning.


11:00 AM

After washing up and getting ready to go out, I edit my work from the day before.
I post the photos once I finish editing, and/or send them to my clients.

I eat lunch at home at noon. I usually eat soup or jjigae. I like to listen to music while I cook.
My current favorite song is Zico’s I am you, you are me.

I leave the house at 1 to go take photos. On days when I have regular street style work, I head to Sinsa or Hongdae.
When I have personal work or brand work, the location depends.

When I take a break in the middle, I like to go to a cafe to drink coffee. My favorite drink at a coffee shop is Americano.
Oh, and this is my trusty Nikon D750 that I use for shoots.

After work, I either eat dinner with whoever I worked with that day (who could be a model) or eat dinner at home.

After dinner, I wash up and like to take a break. I like to watch movies, dramas, or variety shows on my phone.
Right now, I recommend you to watch A Violent Prosecutor. So good. And, shameless plug: find me on Instagram! @AJU_YS
