#1088 Felix Terpstra headed for... Korea?

I've just read on the blog of Dunedin-based agency Ali McD (mother agent to Stella Maxwell and Nicole Clulee) that Felix Terpstra is finally heading overseas. Felix was probably my favourite New Zealand-based new face of 2009, and I was very excited to see him get out into the world and try his luck on the international scene. Fast forward a few months and he's been living in Auckland a while, but besides a couple of tests and Remix editorials, his workload seems to have been pretty quiet of late. New Zealand is a hard market for male models full stop, but if you're an edgy boy, forget about it. But I must say I was surprised to discover that the country of choice for his first international foray was Korea. Tokyo or Sydney would have been far more traditional destinations - for a reason. When I was working as a booker a few years back, Korea was the one country whose clients we forced to pay upfront. Bouncing cheques and forgotten payments were commonplace in the Korean market - at least when I was at the agency. So it's with that in mind that I wish Felix the best of luck overseas, I hope he's got an airtight contract signed.

I LIKE YOU!
