Kevin Kreider

Star of Netflix's Bling Empire, Entrepreneur, and Sobriety & Recovery Leader


Kevin Kreider is an actor, speaker, the breakout star in Netflix's Bling Empire, and Founder/CEO of Sans by Taejin Beverage Inc. and Taejin Entertainment, LLC. Feeling he was not white enough, and yet, not Asian enough either, Kevin set out to carve his own unique path to redefine Asian masculinity and share his unique life journey as a Korean American adoptee.

Kreider left Philadelphia in 2008 to navigate his way in entertainment as a Korean American adoptee. In 2014, the stress and non-stop nature of the modeling industry took a toll on his body, and Kevin was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. He took a few years off, got sober in 2015, and took a leap of faith by moving to Los Angeles. There he was offered a role in Netflix’s international hit, Bling Empire, the first all Asian and Asian American reality show.

Netflix's Bling Empire, which premiered on Netflix's Top 10 Most-Watched Shows of 2021, has been officially renewed for season 2 and releases on May 13th, 2022.

Kreider also starred in a documentary, The Ugly Model, which tracks his life as a Korean American adoptee and model. Read Less ^
