The story of hairy knees began when I was in high school. A friend of mine made fun of me for having hairy knees, which I didn’t notice I had. Since then, people called me hairy knees more often than my real name. I guess you need a moniker when you share your last name with 20 million Kims around the world.

My real name is Ji Kim – I’m an Art Director based in New York, currently working at NEXT. Feel free to email or stalk me on InstagramLinkedin.
