Doori is our first TARNATION! Sports tee shirts model to speak both French and Korean, so she can have native language conversations with both Tony Parker AND Ha Seung-Jin at the same time. Currently a Wolverine, she’s enrolled at the University of Michigan, gaining her first sports tee shirts modeling experience here at Tarnation. With varied interests, she hopes to turn modeling into a career. One of many. Heck, she’s even got an agent already!
What is your favorite sport?
I play soccer and volleyball, but my favorite sport is horseback riding.
Favorite sports team?
My favorite sports team is the NY Knicks. Its the players that the team is composed of that makes it so amazing.
Are you a city girl or a country girl?
I am most definitely a city girl, being born and bred in the big apple.
Can you tell us a bit about your background?
I am a second generation korean-american, born in NY and raised in the suburbs just outside the city itself with my parents and sister, who is 5 years older than myself. I was a child who wanted to and tried to do it all, so from the age of 5, I was juggling everything from piano, ballet and painting classes to joining soccer and volleyball teams!
How did you get started with modeling?
I have always had this absolute decisiveness about my personality that drives me to be not only aggressive but to really go for the things in life that interest me and that i begin to feel a passion for. Modeling just happened to be something that i have developed a love for and even though i found out that i have a passion for it a mere 4 months ago, I got up, found myself an agency and am doing everything possible to work harder and experience more of the modeling world.
Other than modeling, what 3 things do you like to do in your spare time?
Other than modeling, i enjoy reading, cooking and painting. There are so many amazing, potentially life changing books out there to read and even more deliciously creative foods to taste. Painting is simply the best way to make all the overwhelmingly great things we see and experience in life into something visible.
So you have other professional aspirations?
Yes, in addition to modeling, I have aspirations in both acting and fashion. In a way, modeling is like acting because a picture of a model captures a specific moment of emotion and feeling that actors portray. Fashion is the same way because it can alter the aura of a picture depending on what a model wears.

So, switching gears for a moment, what was your most embarrassing moment?
I have got to say my most embarrassing moment was on a plane flying to Paris. I was 18 and so tired that day. After the first 20 minutes in flight, I conked out and ended up sleeping on the shoulder of the person sitting next to me. I have to say, falling asleep on the persons shoulder was not half as awkward as waking up on it.
If you had a super power what would it be and why?
In terms of super powers, I would want to be able to control the weather. Being able to change the weather can really change your whole day! If a rainy day has got you down, you can make it sunny. On the other hand, if you need a nice, calm day to reflect things over in a cafe, just make it rain lightly and peacefully!
So what’s next for you?
Not knowing what is next is really what makes life an adventure. I hope to break into the television and film industry after I graduate at age 20 next year from the University of Michigan with a degree in communications and French. No matter what spontaneity my life brings, whether it be from modeling or acting, I’m going to work hard and try to live with no regrets! You only live once!
Well I might agree that you only live once, but if you believe in reincarnation, maybe you’ll come back as a horse and experience horseback riding from another angle, but that’s a horse of a different color. ANYWAY, thanks Doori for spending time with us and letting everyone get to know you. We’re happy to have you on the team!
