Jun Her (the korean barber): Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

The Korean Barber

Why do you do what you do?

Keeps me moving

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I don’t think there was any special event, but one day, I started carrying a point-and-shoot camera in the bag to work and it all started.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

As an extremely shy person, approaching strangers was definitely breaking out of my comfort zone and still is a challenge everyday.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Parents. Always taught me to be modest and hard-working

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Not seizing the moment. Still a learning curve for me, but getting better.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Currently working on Body Positive project: Project Real Beauty. Check out!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

If you want to do something, do it. Don’t over think it. Just put it into action.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Very excited about the new body positive project I’m working on. Check out
