At just 27 years of age, the multifaceted South Korean performer known simply as Suzy has not only conquered the realms of acting and musical artistry but has also amassed a collection of accolades since her debut in 2010, cementing her status as a global icon.
In addition to her creative pursuits, Suzy’s humanitarian endeavours have garnered her recognition as a philanthropic force. Demonstrating a consistent dedication to noble causes, she extends substantial contributions to support those affected by floods, underprivileged families, individuals battling incurable illnesses, and the ongoing fight against the global pandemic, COVID-19.
As the first South Korean female artist to be appointed an Ambassador of Elegance for Swiss luxury watchmaker Longines, Suzy serves as an embodiment of the values the brand holds dear.
At Royal Randwick’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day, T Australia sat down Suzy to answer some rapid fire questions about her relationship with Longines, her race day wardrobe and maintaining balance alongside her busy lifestyle.
Is your first event for Longines?
Yes … Overall, I am very excited to have this event, because this is my first time getting to see the actual event. When I arrived here I really felt the vibes, so I was very excited to see the actual event in the afternoon
Tell us about your watch…
My favourite collection of the Longines is also Dolce Vita. I only wear the one with the gold case, along with the black letters. I thinks that’s a classic.
Who are you wearing today?
It’s Gabriella Hurst dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoe and this is Dolce Vita [watch by Longines].
When did you know music was your life?
I liked music when I was very young … I started music almost eight years ago. At the time I did not think of this – to become a singer – I just wanted to enjoy the music.
What drew you to Longines?
I believed in this brand… it aligns with my interests and the branding.
What do you do to maintain a healthy balance in life?
I just accept the pressure and stress. I paint – some of my hobbies, drawing and painting, or driving – help to relieve my stress.
