In 2008, Kang Seung-Hyun (Hyoni, 강승현) became the first Asian model to win the Ford ‘Supermodel of the world’ award, walking away with US$250,000 in prize money and a 3-year modeling contract with Ford Models. The 21-year-old, who stands at 178cm tall and weighs 51kg, was a freshman at the modelling department of Dongduk Women’s University. She has since moved to New York into an apartment provided by Ford and will be participating in shows in New York, Paris and Milan.
