If you want to kill your psyche and self-esteem-you here ACE MODELS in Seoul
About the agency:
Owner-boss James States that the Agency has been operating in the market since 1998 and is among the top 5 agencies in Seoul(read as the worst). The Agency of all(!) 2 employee: James Booker Kate, she's Irene, she's "a man without sentiment," she "hate all their models»
Model apartment is located in Gangnam( which is very, very convenient). The apartment has 3 rooms, living room, toilet with bath. As for living conditions:the Windows in the rooms overlook a dark corridor, as a result, daylight does not enter the room. Bed linen, or rather its complete lack, is compensated by blankets and a pillow with a pillowcase. The apartment has everything you need according to the Agency: refrigerator, gas stove and plastic utensils. That's all. There is no iron and it is not provided, the microwave we begged for more than a month.
In the end, we brought an old, dirty, dead microwave. I was in the cold season, the apartment was cold, but fortunately that had heated floors. BUT! Booker Kate regularly came to the apparts, checked the refrigerator, rooms and yelled(Yes, it was yelling) at us if the temperature of the floor heating was more than 20 degrees. She exhibited a temperature of 16 degrees, to which we told her that it's pretty cold and we freeze at such a temperature, to which she replied "you gays are from Ukraine, so it's not cold for you", opened the balcony(at a temperature of -5 outside) and warned that would not change the temperature. Perhaps the only advantage of the Agency is that they regularly bought water for us(cooler)
We were weighed and measured every Monday before the poker(100,000 won). If you, God forbid, more 200 grams or 1 cm ( typical of girls before/during PMS) began a true epic. After the measurements, we were asked to stand in front of the boss, almost under the lamp, and he began to talk about the fact that we do not grow eyebrows, our hair is not the color, not the shape of the lips, etc. Once, he chastised my neighbor for the fact that her hand has a birthmark with the size of a small pea(and it does not interfere with the work). Also, the Agency warned about casting in the morning, a maximum of an hour and a half before they start. Regularly called on the home phone, checking the house we or not.
The Director regularly gave me the offsets of the brain due to the fact that I go on walks(no clubs, no partying, just walking) in your free time. My answers that we have no auditions and simply boring to sit at home, he said "You have to sit at home." As for the castings, they are practically absent, there is work for only one client - home shopping. If you like this client-will work for them regularly, as it was in my history. For auditions we had to twist the curls, if no Agency of grandiose scandal. Booker Kate never said "Hello", "Bye", "How are you", and indeed his whole appearance showed that she hates us.( although first week on arrival she you hypocritical smiles). The first week we were regularly called in to the Agency with or without cause: as I wrote above, we regularly talked about the fact that we have some problems with their appearance, searched us some flaws, endlessly checked posture. There are no castings for magazines, as the Director said "they pay little".
Conclusion: if you want to work productively, make beech or gain experience-you just do not here. If you want just want to enjoy Seoul-you're not here, maybe walking is prohibited, communication with other models is not encouraged.
Pokety 100 000 won, accommodation in a good area: close to shops, metro, near a beautiful Park. There is a cleaning lady that comes once a week and amuses you with his nedobora( vacuums, and just sitting on the couch 1.5 hours playing phone)
