Hails from: South Korea (via North Korea)
Occupation: Professional Boxer
Known for: Being South Korea’s “Million Dollar Baby.” At the age of seventeen, she’s already the victor of five amateur national championship titles. But she turned pro last September, and on October 11, won the World Boxing Association women’s featherweight championship, ultimately duking it out with China’s top contender for the big prize.
She fights “for her parents,” supporting them after they made the risky move from North to South Korea so she could train and fight–and of course they’re proud. But we like her because she’s got a crazy cute baby face (she looks exactly like Diana’s sister, Anh, circa 1979), but a fierce and fiery punch. That’s our kinda combo. Punch it out, lady!
