Beautiful, that's what Florin Sopcu is! But is it what he’s all about? Let me tell you something about this Romanian piece of art, he’s the guy you wish he’ll mow your lawn, (ps. well he did it with only extra sweat for My.Kali, wink wink!), and there he is, the guy we day dream about in school, the guy to stalk between lectures and the guy you want to bump into accidentally (but sooooooo badly), were he’ll come down to pick you up, get closer, closer enough to smell his natural musk! While we’re sitting here, day dreaming, Florin is right out side in his neighborhood street, jogging like he always does and like he said “Sports is something that is pretty much projected in my life”. Romantic is another word to describe Florin, a place to notice only what a chameleon heart Florin have. He dedicates his life for fashion, a world where he can mix his two favorite colors green and white, making one hell of a combo to only project it on his toned healthy and defined body. If you ever got stuck with florin, he might take you dancing, where he’ll take all his energy out, “I love dancing,” he says, “I like energetic things, that gets me pumping…” says florin. So if you ever wonder what’s behind his beautiful colored eyes, know there’s a person who likes to help people succeed the things that he did.
When did you first know that you wanted to be a model?
I started modeling when I was 18. One day I was sporting like always; jogging, and somebody saw me in the street running, so he came up to me... and later on I discovered he was a designer. He opened my eyes on this business and welcomed me into the industry, by modeling for him.
What are the healthy habits you follow to look super?
Off this point, I don't do so much chaos with this, because if you eat like home cooked meals and not ordering fast foods all the time, where are a lot of fake ingredients and saturated fats are inside, is perfect for a healthy lifestyle, I order food sometimes but not after 9 pm! Oh I drink a lot of water too, but don’t over do it...
Ok, we all know that models have a very high confidence, but does it ever feel like you’re not? Why?
Yes, if you don't start modeling like an open minded person with a lot of interest to create your good contacts to work with you’ll be some how washed out, and without confidence you cannot succeed in this industry for sure. However, we also get those “everybody regular moments” that you feel a bit ugly, fading, your hair line is funny, or there’s something in your body you’re not proud of, so we do have such feelings and we tend to get over them, by working on the good sides to show and hide the bad. But I am sure if you ask one model on the street you’ll see how he is confident on himself!
Models are expected to be perfect. Do you believe that? Tell us about your imperfection?
No model is perfect, even the top models that I know and worked with....if you say you’re perfect, you're totally misleading your life, wrongly! Because in this business you cannot know what type of models they need, you need to wait until they need your type and get the job! About my imperfections, well that’s a long list you don’t want to know about!
The modeling industry can say short conclusions that cause imperfections. Sometimes they give you a good feeling in front of clients, making you look different so they’d pick you up and get the job! So this industry isn’t based on what we call “inner beauty”!
What do you know about the Middle East? What do you like about the Middle East? And have you ever been to any?
No, I haven’t been there yet. A big part of me wants to go there. I think it’s a very interesting part of the world, and I would love to take a trip and discover the beauty over there. One day hopefully.
Tell us about the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you at a fashion show?
Usually I don't make mistakes in fashion shows. I do all my work professionally, but there is this one thing that happened to me, which is dead on funny, not only that it was embarrassing as well. Once I had a big show for a big brand for under wears... where my penis was growing, and getting hard…right on stage. I was like a red little thing! But at the end everything turned good and clean!
The Future is something everybody works on. What do you see yourself doing? Do you see yourself pursuing modeling?
Yes, I try my best to grow in this business, hopefully long enough to make it big. However, some guys do grow quick, some guys less. You need to wait for your time, but after all, I hope I can work in this business, around it, or somewhere in between with the people in contact!
Tell us about your Country. What do people act like, do, rituals…anything you like?
In Romania, there are no rituals, and the country is superb and not because I was born there, but because it’s just a calm country, people are quiet and the structure of the country contains a lot of unique things, like CASTEL of DRACULA, or WHITE HOUSE. They say the first land from the Earth was in Romania in a part called BANAT! So there some sort of fascination about it, and I love my it.
what is it, that's so good about modeling?
It’s neither; good or bad. It depends on how you see this industry. It’s a very complicated zone, unstable, always changing, and on the clock, it’s just the way it is! It’s mathmatises on too many things, where 60% is your booker, 20% your looks, 20% how you deal with the clients; like eye contact! And 1 % more intuition!
