Born in Seoul, Jung began her photography and printing studies at age 14. She attended Parsons School of Design in New York City where she began photographing her musician and artist friends, and the local music venues on the Lower East Side became her second home.
She continues to work with creatives, and true to her passion, often photographs and collaborates with musicians on the road. She has also spent over a decade working in photo editorial for TEEN VOGUE, American VOGUE and ELLE.
She lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
