Stellar Blade's protagonist Eve is based on real-life South Korean model Shin Jae-eun. We spent months searching for confirmation of the Instagram star’s inclusion after she was originally rumoured to be associated with the game, and so we went directly to the source, asking Game Director Hyung-Tae Kim if the rumours were true.

“Yes, we did base the character of Eve on the model Shin Jae-eun,” he confirmed. “We thought that her body shape would be a good reference for the character that we were pursuing. But the face was created originally in-house – it’s just the body of the model that we scanned for the game.”

Asked why the team settled on Jae-eun as the game’s model, Kim elaborated: “Of course it depends on how you define beautiful bodies, but for us we wanted to come up with the most attractive looking body for the user, so this is why we made the decision to work with her.”
