About Kim Chi
Kim Chi is a 7′ tall, live-action anime character and high-fashion model. Born in the U.S., raised in South Korea, and currently based in Chicago, Kim is a cultural hybrid with a preternatural understanding of style and conceptual fashion. One cannot bound Kim Chi with any stylistic stereotypes. She deftly absorbs and interprets our contemporary cultural milieu with unflinching focus. An ever-evolving chameleon, Kim never fails to surprise and delight with her larger than life looks and her high standard of work.
Kim’s drag career started in November 2012. Joined by a team of creative visionaries, she quickly blossomed into a fixture of the Chicago drag scene. Kim started working with party-production company Neverland in 2012, becoming the Chicago-based party’s main host. Kim has been invited to perform in numerous locations across the U.S., including NYC, Boston, Providence, Texas, Iowa, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Madison, and Hawaii.
Kim’s work encapsulates the transcendental nature of drag, as the seemingly simple act of a man putting on a dress is transformed into fine art. Follow her career to experience the possibilities of her otherworldly creative vision.
Anime Expo 2018 will run from July 5 through July 8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with Pre-Show Night on July 4, 2018.
