“It’s unreal. Just unreal. I never expected this sort of thing to happen so I think the biggest emotion that I’m feeling is that I just can’t believe it. What I’m trying to do is I’m trying to see people that are very close to me so that I can stay [grounded] and I don’t get carried away because of this,” she said.
Alongside fronting Louis Vuitton, HoYeon is now signed to both Chanel and Calvin Klein. The South Korean is now a global brand ambassador for LV, with her IG regularly showing her rocking the Kardashian-adored monogram.
