Tell us about a bit about yourself? Hi! I’m Hana, I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and I’m Korean nationality (people always ask lol). I moved to Florida as a kid and used to play golf professionally. As an adult, I juggle a few different careers. I currently own and operate a women’s residence/sober home, also a Realtor specializing in investments and of course, I’m an agency represented model.

Were you excited to shoot this feature for FHM? Absolutely! I’m so ecstatic and grateful!

How do you prepare for a shoot? I make sure I sleep as much as I can the night before!

If you weren’t a model, what would you be? A therapist.

Describe your perfect man… My boyfriend is pretty much the perfect man for me 🙂 He’s rough around the edges but super sweet with me! He’s creative, honest, open and confident.

Who is your celeb crush? Probably Tom Hardy.

What is your ideal date? Something fun and competitive like the arcade or any type of games or going to a museum, followed with amazing cuisine!

What do you do for fun? Send quality time with my family, friends and boyfriend, video chatting my nephew and niece, shooting billiards, guns, archery, mini golf!

Which three words best describe you? Determined, Reliable and Empathic.

What is the one thing about yourself that you wish more people knew? I think I’m pretty hilarious, but most people know me as serious a lot of the time. Also, I have a ridiculous appetite, I eat a lot… A LOT!!!!

Tell us a bit about your most embarrassing moment. I am super clumsy so I have a lot of bruises and scratches everywhere. I showed up to a shoot for a beauty product and was asked by the director if I moonlighted as a kickboxer lol.

Lastly, what is your life motto? Or a quote that means a lot to you? There is no path to success without failure! Accept that failure is always going to be a part of your journey.
