Phenomenal Woman...Jung So Min

Whenever I see pictures of So Min, watch videos of her projects or read her interviews, it never fails to amaze me how well rounded So Min is. I think I've said to many words to describe her but sometimes I feel it wasn't enough. 

Then, I stumbled upon a poem written by one of my favorite woman of today, Maya Angelou. While reading her poem, Phenomenal Woman I suddenly remember Jung So Min. I know she's still young and have way to go in terms of her life and career but as I read the lines in of this poem I can picture out few of So Min's characteristics and her possibilities in the future. 

The Jung So Min today is already fantastic as it is but I'm positively sure that in due time with armed with experience in life I'm sure that Jung So Min can be a phenomenal woman in the future!

And below is the poem by the Maya Angelou.

Phenomenal Woman

by Maya Angelou

>Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,   
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

>Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
