When she was asked, "Which commercial do you remember the most?" Im Soojung replied, "SKII. I have been the model for the brand for 7 years, so it's impossible for me to forget about it." She continued, "However, as I paid more attention to vegetarian lifestyle and animal, environmental protection issues, my life changed. I began using organic products that caused no harm to any animals during its manufacture. I couldn't continue being the model for the brand if I wanted to keep my morals."

Im Soojung is one of the most well-known vegan celebrities. After she was diagnosed that her body is allergic to animal proteins in food like cheese and milk, she became a vegetarian and constantly shared her animal-friendly routines. 

It's very honest and brave of her to make such a bold decision.
