In a world of manly muscle women, rarely can one find a nice girl. Who is also chiseled like a greek statue. From a land where even less women do bodybuilding, we find Yeon Woo Jhi.  The land of Asia, Jhi is the one who probably comes close to the perfect muscle woman.  She’s exotic, yet lean. She’s timid, but strong.  She’s shy, yet not afraid to show off her glorious muscles.  She is the type of girl who will read you bedtime story. While she’s cradling you in her arms as she rocks you to sleep. She is what it means to be strong and sexy. The kind of woman Fa Mulan couldn’t dream of being.

Jhi, 29, is somewhat of a mystery. Because of the lack of interest and participation in bodybuilding in her native South Korea, little is known of her competition history or when she started training. What is known is that she started training after meeting, her now husband, Jong Sup Won. Who is bodybuilder as well.

Jhi began competing as a Figure competitor. She participated in various amateur contests in Seoul, South Korea. Where she regularly placed high. Sometime later, Jhi began competing in Bodybuilding as well.

It wasn’t until she made a trip to the United States that Jhi started catching peoples’ eyes. Jhi went to California to support her husband and compete at the 2011 NPC California State Championships. Though, she did not place. She wanted the chance to compete on American soil again. So, she competed at the Memorial Day Muscle Beach International Classic. Not only did she won her class, she won the overall as well. The win gave Jhi more confindence and convinced her to continue moving forward with her training.

For the next several months, Jhi and her husband traveled back to South Korea and the United States to train for the 2011 NPC Excalibur. Now a bodybuilder, Jhi sported a more leaner and defined package. At the Excalibur, Jhi placed second. But, she became sought-after by photographers who wanted to capture her unique, exotic look. Despite keeping a low profile, photos and videos of her kept showing up on the web. As they quickly made her internet sensation. Which give her new fans from all over the world.

After finishing third at the 2012 Ms. Korea Bodybuilding. Jhi relocated from South Korea to Hong Kong. Where she began training to compete in the Women’s Physique Division. Jhi believed she would be perfect for Women’s Physique due to her body structure and shape. In 2013, Jhi participated in the Arnold Classic Europe Amateur Event. Where she competed in Women’s Physique against women from all over the world. Judges were impressed. Not only did she win the 163cm over Class, she won the overall too. The win made her already rising star rise even more and she was now a competitor to look for in the future. However, it’s not sure if she has applied for pro status.
