Meandering my way with champagne in one hand around Chanel’s Code Coco launch party in Cheongdam, Seoul, time stopped when I bumped into Krystal Jung, member of Korean girl group, f(x). In the spirit of the new timepiece launch, we caught up with the 23-year old with her concept of time.


If you have the ability to stop time, how would you use your power?  
When I am on a vacation so I can have more fun!

Where is your favourite vacation spot?
I was in Ibiza, Spain late last year. Earlier last year I was in Hawaii. Everywhere with beach, water sports… it is my heaven.

What do you like to do on the beach?
I like to swim, surfing and I’ve done skydiving too. I haven’t done scuba diving but I definitely want to try that.

What do you do in your free time?
Well, I spend time with my family and friends. I’ll go to watch the movies, shopping or awesome restaurant for good foods.

Would you buy time?
I don’t really want to buy time. I never thought about it because it is impossible, you know? And I like the way time just passes because, I think, time heals everything.


What do you use to tell time?
My watch! If I’m not wearing, I will look at my phone. I have my trusty Boyfriend watch from Chanel, it’s the large model in yellow gold.

Are you wearing one today?
Yeah, but I’m wearing the Code Coco today. It’s a bracelet that has a watch on it and it unbuckles like this (Jung rotates the metal clasp on the dial and unbuckle the watch-bracelet). I think it’s very cool and unique — it has three codes from Chanel: the quilting, princess-cut diamond (Gabrielle Chane’s favourite cut) and the Mademoiselle clasp. It goes with all styles. I can pair it with what I’m wearing today, but also a pantsuit.
