FULL NAMEmarion noelle jung
GRADE Freshman in college
BIRTHDAY November 17th
Marion is what many would call a very beautiful young woman, though she tries to think of herself in more humble terms. Of Korean decent, her almond shaped eyes are a warm, rich brown color and are framed by thick, dark lashes, a contrast to her creamy skin that always manages to be blemish free. She also has what many have described as her special ‘eye smile,’ which is used to describe the way her eyes shut when she has a big smile on her face. Her hair is naturally a deep brown, almost black, though you couldn’t really tell, she dyes it so often. It can often range from a rich burgundy to a coppery blonde to a more subdued flaxen, and it usually doesn’t stay any one color for very long. She also has a habit of dying chunks of her hair unnatural shades and can often be seen with pinks, blues, purples, or any assortment of colors streaked throughout her hair. She usually leaves it long, with loose curls that fall to the ends of her shoulder blades and soft side-swept bangs.
Standing at five feet, four inches, she is of average height by many standards and she has a thin, feminine figure that she attained through dancing. When it comes to hair and makeup, Marion likes to keep it simple enough so as to mostly blend in with the crowd while also playing around with her style enough to appear cute and unique. She is fond of sweaters, off-the-shoulder tops, jeans, skirts, pretty much anything that fits in to the current style. However, she uses brightly colored accessories to give herself a unique flair, just a little something to cause her to stand out ever so slightly but not appear obscene. As for her makeup, she has a tendency to lean towards eyeliner and mascara, both of which make her eyes appear to be larger and give her an innocent look, though she often ops toward a more natural palate of eyeshadow and lipstick. Lastly, she has a small water-color tattoo of a lily on her hip and the Korean character for the number 4 on her left wrist.

One of Marion’s most prominent personality traits is that she is very, very competitive. She hates losing and she doesn’t take it well, which is a trait that that pushes her to work hard and try her best at everything, something that helped her get to where she is today. Because of her persistence, she was able to become a part of a Korean pop group that is fairly well known throughout South Korea. The group has even branched out and gained a following in other countries as well, their catchy music and overall personality winning them fans all over the world. However, despite her extreme dislike for losing, she is a good sport and she always makes sure to congratulate the winners and be friendly with them, though this doesn’t stop her from complaining about it later on. She has a tendency to complain about anything and everything, as it is her way of dealing with any frustration or emotions that she may be feeling about any little thing. This habit usually shows itself once she’s had her feelings hurt, as she usually complains to a third-party member instead of confronting the person involved, as she is a pacifist and hates conflict. She would much rather just take all emotions in and complain to someone else later on then start a fight.
Marion is also a very honest and friendly individual and she loves talking to people. She is a terrible liar and she probably couldn’t even lie to save her life; the idea of telling someone something that isn’t true is almost physically painful for her, she absolutely hates lying. She feels like it’s an underhanded tactic, a cheap way of trying to get out of something and not work as hard, which she does not approve of. Marion is a very hard-worker and she doesn’t stop until something is finished, which is a very good quality when it comes to her university courses, as this plus her natural intelligence make her an ideal student. She always does her homework and is one of the first to participate in every class, and she always completes her assignments quickly, hardly ever leaving them for last minute or finishing them the night before. Procrastination is something that goes against her very nature and can never understand why it is such a common occurrence among fellow students.
However, she does have some interesting quirky habits as well, one being that she is an incredibly picky eater. While she has an impressive appetite and could probably eat her body weight in any one sitting, she can’t bring herself to eat just anything. She hates cauliflower and she absolutely detests zucchini, though zucchini bread is just fine, and she will go out of her way to avoid these items. Mayonnaise is also a no go and is at the top of her most hated list of foods, which is an unsurprisingly long list. Give her pretty much any fruit or almost any other vegetable and she can eat a shocking amount. Another odd quirk of hers is that she cannot leave a voicemail if nobody picks up, not even for her best friend. There is just something about it, about being on the phone in general, that fills her with such anxiety that she simply cannot bring herself to do it, no matter how weird it is. It is a big fear of hers and it is something that she has yet to get over.
Unlike most of the girls in her group, Marion was born and raised in the states, though both of her parents are Korean by birth. Born on November 17th, she was raised in the sleepless city of New York until she turned ten, which was when her life started to get a little more hectic than it once was. At the darling age of ten, Marion’s parents constant squabbling behind closed doors finally became too much for them and they decided that they wanted a divorce, which was something that caused Marion a lot of grief and heartbreak, and it was only made worse when her mother decided to move to Seoul, South Korea, taking her with her and leaving her father to live in New York. Though Marion liked her mother more and was happy to have the opportunity to see members of her family that still remained in Korea, she still didn’t like the idea of leaving her father and she still doesn’t get to see him that often, a fact that has affected her over the years.
Being an American, the transition to living in South Korea was a difficult one for Marion, though she realizes it could have been much worse. Her parents, having wanted their little girl to understand their home language just as much as she could understand English had made sure they had taught her to be bilingual, though Marion couldn’t say that she was fluent in the language; she would have considered herself to more proficient than anything, so being suddenly thrown into the new culture and immersed in her second language was overwhelming to her as a child. Her grades, usually impeccable and near the top of the class, started to drop. Her mother, noticing that something was bothering the young girl, took to helping her with her homework when she was struggling and enforcing that they speak only Korean around the home to help her build up her ability with the language. Slowly but surely, she began to improve and while she was not at the top of the class, Marion’s grades began to rise and settled down in a comfortable A-B range, which her mother was very proud of. Marion began to adjust to her new life and things were starting to become normal once more, which the girl was very thankful for.
By the time she was fifteen, Marion was completely settled in and enjoying her new life in Korea, though she still missed her father and wished she could visit him more often. It was around this time that she began to put some thought into what she would like to do with her future. She knew that she had always loved performing for her parents and they always seemed to enjoy her little concerts while she was growing up and her mother always encouraged her to sing around the house, so she gave some serious thought into the idea until she decided to try for it. With her mother supporting her along the way and years of dance classes and vocal lessons under her belt, Marion began the process of auditioning to become a star. She was accepted almost immediately, her talents catching the eyes of the board members and sending her straight her new position as a trainee. After two years as a trainee, her ambition to become a pop star pushing her through the years and causing her to switch from public education to home schooling, Marion finally managed to get the confirmation that she could finally join a group called ‘Silver Heart,’ which consisted of three other girls.
Their debut had a rocky start and Marion found herself wondering on more than one occasion why she decided on this career, why she decided to pursue this life choice and stick with it, but she held out through the rough times and slowly but surely, the girls started getting noticed. After two years of trying as hard as they could, working long nights and doing everything they could to get noticed, the girls finally built up a large fan base, selling out full arenas by the time she was twenty-two years old. However, there was discord was beginning to form between the group; several of the girls were getting tired of each other, each of them wanting to try a solo career, to see themselves shine. It was decided that a short hiatus was in order to allow the members time to cool, to do their own things. It was for the better of the group and to the disappointment of the fans that the four parted ways, three of them going on to try their luck at a solo career and Marion deciding to try her hand at a university.
Having gotten her GED during her time as a trainee, Marion was free to attend any school that she felt she could attend or even apply to, though she really only had one in mind. Her father was a professor of anatomy and biology at Wentworth University and she had decided that now would be the best time to try and get to know the father that she had been separated from for such a long time. Thanks to her requirement to keep her hair a silver color during her performances, whether she was required to dye it or wear a wig to go along with the theme of silver, Marion was able to safely navigate the streets of Korea without being noticed, so it was even easier in America and after talking to her father and applying, she was accepted into Wentworth. Now she currently resides on campus and sees her father on a regular basis, which is her attempt to make up for all the years of separation.
Do I have to? Do I really have to?
