At the shoot, Cho-won, So-ra, So-hyun, Na-hyun, Han-bit, Yeon-hee and Jin-kyung manage to impress. A handful of other semi finalists fall flat.

Host Yoon Ju rounds up the semi-finalists, and tells them that they will all have to pass through a metal detector. If the metal detector beeps, the model has not made it to the top 16. If the model is able to pass through the detector without having it beep, she is one of the final 16. The pool of girls is reduced to 16. Two contestants who were initially rejected (Da-min & Hae-rin) are added to the cast after a change of heart, bringing the final number to 18 contestants.

"High" Fashion Spy[edit]

Later, they were required to practise stunts in midair on a wall while secured on wires. So-ra knocked her leg and back on the wall while practising and complained of back pain constantly, which annoyed some of the girls. Then, all the girls were paired for the challenge, which was to perform the stunts taught in synchronization with their partners. Cho-won and Jin-kyung were declared the winners and won the right to assign house chores to the other contestants.

  • Reward Challenge Winner: Kang Cho-won & Kim Jin-kyung

The next morning, the girls were welcomed by their creative director and played a video message from Americas Next Top Model's creative director, Jay Manuel. Mr. Jay was then revealed to be right behind them and surprised the girls for the next photo shoot.

The photo shoot required the girls to pose on a high-rise building embodying a secret agent or spy. Because of So-hyun's first call-out in the previous episode, she got to decide the order of which the girls get their photos taken. So-ra was the first girl up. Within seconds from being dropped down from the roof of the building slowly, So-ra panicked and could not start her shoot. After a few other girls took their photos, she requested the props department to provide her the fake gun Han-bit used in her photo shoot to aid her posing, which rubbed some of the girls the wrong way. Most of the girls impressed Jay, especially So-hyun and Han-bit, who produced stellar photos in a variety of excellent poses. During panel, So-hyun was deemed to be the best and earned her second consecutive first call-out, followed by Yeon-hee and Han-bit. Cho-won's photo was deemed amazing by all the judges, with the exception of Jay, who said she looked as though she needed to go to the bathroom. This caused Cho-won to cry after her critique, and Jay saying that she needs to be more mature and tough in such a harsh industry like modelling. The other girls did not seemed to impress at all. So-ra was reprimanded for her terrible attitude on set, which reflected in her photo. During her critique, So-ra's bad habit of tearing the skin under her fingernails caused her hands to bleed in front of the judges. Ultimately, Kyung-hee and Min-jung landed bottom two. Kyung-hee for not taking the competition seriously and Min-jung for her cliche photos. Min-jung was given a chance and Kyung-hee was eliminated.

  • Bottom two: Lee Min-jung & Heo Kyung-hee
  • Eliminated: Heo Kyung-hee
  • Featured photographer: Oh Joong-seok
  • Special guests: Go Eun-kyeong & Jay Manuel

Vampire Brides[edit]

Original Airdate: August 25, 2012

After the elimination, the girls told So-ra about their issues with her, specifically that she was seemingly complaining too much about things that were affecting all the girls — for example, the pain and discomfort of the previous photoshoot — and the fact that she appeared to steal ideas from other girls (such as Na-hyun's cup-crushing idea during the commercial shoot, and Han-bit's gun prop during the spy photo shoot). So-ra was dejected after the conversation, which was noticed by the other girls.

The remaining 11 contestants were treated to a lunch with male guests. Unbeknownst to them, however, this was a challenge about being professional wherever the models are. The two models that impressed the modelling trainer were Cho-won and Ji-su, who were treated to jewelry. In addition, there was only one watch to be won; Ji-su allowed Cho-won to keep the watch.

  • Reward Challenge Winner: Kang Cho-won & Hong Ji-su

Soon after, they were individually interviewed by Christian Paris of Major Model Management, and the girls were warned beforehand that this would be an elimination challenge. Most girls impressed Christian, especially Ji-su's facial features, Se-hee's sense of style, and So-ra's look in general. So-hyun's height was deemed a little too short for modelling, but Christian stated to her that if she's able to outshine the other taller contestants, she can be booked. Cho-won's cute personality did not sit well with Christian. Christian pointed out to some models what they needed to work on in order to get booked. Ji-su was the first person called. Han-bit and Eun-hwa were in the bottom two. The casting director previously stated that Eun-hwa was gaining too much weight for modelling. The director also disapproved of Han-bit, as she unnecessarily danced during her audition. Ultimately, Han-bit was the last person called out, and Eun-hwa was eliminated.

  • Reward Challenge Winner: Hong Ji-su
  • Bottom two: Yoon Eun-hwa & Choi Han-bit
  • Eliminated outside of judging panel: Yoon Eun-hwa

The photoshoot required the girls to pose with male models for a "Vampire Bride" concept. As So-hyun was the winner of the previous shoot, she was able to again choose the order in which the girls go for their photoshoot; So-ra was surprisingly chosen to go second, after Min-jung. The girls complained that So-ra seemed to attract special attention from the photographer, as she was allowed to practice with the photographer prior to the actual shoot. Many of the girls had some difficulties, but So-hyun and Yeon-hee received strong praise from the creative director and the photographer.

Both the photographer and Christian Paris were part of the judging panel. Upon viewing So-ra's photo, Paris disagreed with the rest of the judges, as he felt that it was lacking in emotion and underwhelming; however, the rest of the panel expressed their contentment over her photo. So-hyun's picture left judge Lee Hye-ju "breathless" and stated that she did not seem to be an amateur model. She continued to say that she underestimated her (and the photographer admitted this as well), but that So-hyun's ability to understand and work with the concept was surprising. Yeon-hee's picture was also well received by the panel: the photographer stated that she totally let go of any inhibitions and surprised the entire crew with her modelling, and Lee Hye-ju stated that she would choose Yeon-hee as "Best Actress". Han Sang-hyeok confirmed that Yeon-hee was runner-up quite often, and that he hoped that she would not be runner-up this week.

Ultimately, So-hyun was the girl first called out, and Yeon-hee was second, each for the third week in a row. The bottom two were Han-bit and Se-hee. Jang Yoon-ju stated that for Se-hee, the issue was that even with her makeover, she was unable to showcase her modelling abilities in photoshoots and demonstrate to the judges that she had what it takes to become a top model. For Han-bit, the issue was that her acting ability was demonstrated in the picture, as expected, but the judges were getting tired of her overacting and unnatural poses, and that for her to become a high fashion, she must learn to exercise restraint. Se-hee was the last girl called out, and Han-bit was eliminated.

  • First call-out: Ko So-hyun
  • Bottom two: Choi Han-bit & Choi Se-hee
  • Eliminated: Choi Han-bit
  • Featured photographer: Kim Wook
  • Special guests: Christian Paris, Fabian & An Jae-hyeon

Overseas to Cambodia; Oriental High Fashion[edit]

Original Airdate: September 8, 2012

Immediately after the elimination, the girls were told by Jang Yoon-ju that they had to go pack their bags for their overseas destination, without telling the girls where they would be going. The next day, the girls landed in Cambodia. Although pleasantly surprised by the choice, the girls were unhappy with the high humidity and the relatively basic hotel they were staying at. Later on, the girls visited a village school where they interacted with the children and fed them lunch. This was a challenge, so the contestants were paired off in twos. At the end of the day, the models held a "runway" show with the children. The girls who "won" the challenge were Cho-won and So-ra, who had 300 sets of school supplies donated to the school in their name.

  • Reward Challenge Winner: Kang Cho-won & Choi So-ra

The photoshoot was at an old ruined temple, with an "Oriental High Fashion" concept set over a thousand years ago. The challenge winners were given the choice of "stealing" 10 frames from other contestants. Cho-won stole ten frames from Yeon-hee (with the reason that she saw her as a top competitor), while So-ra took them from Jin-kyung (stating that she believed her good shots were from genetics and luck). Min-jung and Jin-kyung pleasantly surprised the creative director, whereas Cho-won and Se-hee struggled to showcase the concept. Na-hyun was noted for complaining and not pushing herself to do her best.

Both the photographer and the creative director were guest judges on the panel. During judging, the girls were judged using both a body shot and a close-up. Min-jung and Jin-kyung were praised for their understanding of the concepts and their poses; Min-jung's photo was labelled as her best to date. On the other hand, Se-hee was considered extremely awkward in her photos; Jang Yoon-ju stated that her hands were odd in both shots, and that both shots were ultimately poor. Cho-won's photos were liked by the judges, but those on set during the shoot noted that it was due to luck, and that the model really needed to quickly learn how to pose for the camera. Na-hyun's photos were stated to be poor, and the judges stated that she showed her discomfort too obviously, although judge Lee Hye-ju stated that she at least emoted well with her face; So-ra, on the other hand, was criticized for not emoting enough. So-hyun was noted to have a poor wide shot (but praised for her close-up), and the creative director advised Yeon-hee to start changing up her poses in more subtle ways, and to make it more sophisticated. During judging, both So-ra and Na-hyun were noted to be losing their spark over the competition's duration.

To her own surprise, Min-jung was the first girl to be called out. The bottom two were Na-hyun and Se-hee. Na-hyun was disciplined for her inability to keep striving forward and mask any frustrations or difficulties. Se-hee was taken to task for being unable to live up to her potential and the fact that she had yet to surprise the judges with any of her photos. Ultimately, Se-hee was eliminated.
