K-pop star Jessica Jung is quite the multi-hyphenate, so much so that you don’t even need to count the hyphen in “K-pop” for her number of hyphens to remain impressive. Today, Revlon announced the singer–former Girls’ Generation member–actress–model–YA author–reality TV star–designer–beauty brand founder is its newest global ambassador, tacking on yet another title.

In a statement, Revlon revealed that Jung will represent the brand in Asia and appear in 2020 global campaigns for the iconic Super Lustrous and ColorStay franchises. Congrats are also in order for Jung’s hair, which seems to have landed a gig as well. Jung will also be staring in campaigns for new launches including the brand’s new Total Color permanent hair color line.

“Revlon has always represented the epitome of glamour for me. As a young girl growing up in San Francisco, I couldn’t help but be dazzled by the bold imagery of iconic women wearing Revlon makeup!” she said in the statement. This dazzling probably took place around the time Jung was discovered in a South Korean mall while on vacation and subsequently catapulted to fame as a founding member of K-pop girl group Girls’ Generation. Now an international solo superstar, she’s known to millions of fans as simply “Jessica,” and even inspired a character’s name in Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, 2019’s biggest film.

“To now be part of these legendary Revlon ambassadors is a thrill and an honor,” she added. In her new role, Jung will be joining Revlon faces Gal Gadot, Sofia Carson, Ashley Graham, Adwoa Aboah, and Eniola Abioro.
