Agencies Fight Over S. Korea’s “Next Top Model”

in Entertainment

Sora Choi’s career is going on so well that agencies are engaging in a tug-of-war just to sign her up!

The famed Wilhelmina modeling agency stole the South Korean stunner from her Manhattan management company by promising to sponsor her work visa, according to a lawsuit, according to the New York Post.

Muse Management says it had a three-year deal with Choi, the willowy 2012 winner of “Next Top Model” in her homeland, and spent “countless hours developing Choi’s image to the point where she is today an internationally recognized model.”

Choi got work with Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang — but in May wrote a letter claiming she wanted to end her contract with Muse, the company claims in its Manhattan Supreme Court suit against the model and Wilhelmina Models.

The next month, Wilhelmina announced their association with Choi on social media.

“Wilhelmina knew that Choi had no right to ‘end’ her management agreement,” Muse charges, adding “Wilhelmina has wrongfully induced Choi to render services as a model to Wilhelmina by offering to sponsor her work visa.”

Muse is seeking unspecified damages. Wilhelmina did not return a call for comment.
