Kristina Korban is a lovely, musically-inclined Eastern European who now resides in Los Angeles! Read on to learn about her affinity for pretty boys, Marilyn Monroe, and Olympic swimmer, Nathan Adrian!
What is your hometown and where do you live now? I am originally from Kiev Ukraine, but now live in LA
Measurements/Vitals: 34C-25-37, 5’10″, honey eyes, Eastern European.
Where have we seen your modeling? I have been in Maxim Espanol, actually have a cover coming up with them! I have billboard hanging in Kiev, I’ve been in music videos and I have don’t a lot of features for my music — which is my main career direction.
Thrill seek much? I am a fearless cliff jumper! Always the first one diving in. I’ve realized it’s better not to give yourself time to think about it and weigh the pros and cons… But career-wise I’m very proud of my music charting in DJ Times, and Music Week!
Congrats working with Maxim en Espanol, anything you want to share with us about the shoot or how people reacted to the layout? The shoot was completely spontaneous! Martin Alonso approached me on the beach in Miami and asked if I would shoot with him. I initially was turning him away, assuming he was a creeper — but then it turned out my manager knew him, and we have been great friends since and shot many more times!
Who is your favorite Playmate or Playboy model of all time? Definitely Marilyn Monroe! She is just an amazing entertainer, and it’s unfortunate her life ended so soon — she still had so much to offer the world. Oh, and she’s a Gemini like me!
On a first date, what things can win a guy major points with you? What things will make you never see him again? Major points if he can make me laugh, doesn’t get too pushy, and if he is well dressed. I love metrosexuals! I will kick them to the curb if they are rude, lack common sense, or smell bad.
What do you perceive as the sexier things about yourself? Well word on the street is that my large bum is quite the attraction. I’m actually nicknames”Bunz” by most of my close friends. But also I think what makes me sexy is my confidence and no mercy type attitude.
What were you like in school? I was a straight-A student, and learning always came very easy to me. I never spent too much time on homework and always was very active with sports, dance and nightlife. I guess you can say I balanced everything perfectly!
What is your sex and relationship advice for guys? Never push a girl past her limits. If you want to try something new, find a way to hint it in a polite manner. Girls are all different. I like straightforward guys — because that is the way I am, but some girls may be frightened by directness. Try and scope out her type before you say anything bananas! Put the girl first, she will expect you to! At least find a way to make her think you are! In general just be considerate, loving, faithful, honest, and spontaneous.
What brought you to the US? Well the reason I left Ukraine was because of Chernobyl (the nuclear reactor that blew) I was always very sick and started developing thyroid issues. My parents wanted me to get quality treatment and to live in a clean environment. It definitely influenced my life and made certain things difficult, but life is grand and nothing should stop us from enjoying it!
We are glad you are here, safe and well! What would your ultimate modeling assignment be? I would LOVE to be in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Damn those girls are sexy!
Lets say you were planning a celebrity threesome… who are you inviting? Nathan Adrian the swimmer: He’s tall, fit, and has brains! Also Chris Hemsworth: He’s so sexy, he has an amazing accent, and is devoted to his family!
What is the most ridiculous thing a photographer has asked you to do for a shoot? I think I am the one always suggesting something bizarre and wild. I get bored easily and always suggest taking the shoot to the extreme which whatever we have available.
The sexiest sports icon is: See above! Haha! Mr. Adrian has it going on!
