Haejun, born and raised in South Korea, knew he was different from a very young age. He loved dolls, wearing women’s clothing and putting on makeup. He remembers with a melancholy look his years in high school and the painful hardships he endured for being “different” to the strictly homogeneous Korean society. His love and passion for dance helped him in his moments of despair, and he uses his profound talent for teaching and performing regularly in Seoul. In Jorge Gonzalez's editorial photoshoot with Haejun, he strived to capture the nostalgia that comes from visiting one's hometown after many years away.
