Kim Chi from "RuPaul's Drag Race," whose real name is Sang-Young Shin, is one of the drag queens competing in Season 8 of the Logo reality series. She is from Chicago, Illinois.

Korean drag queen Kim Chi is not only a cultural first for "RuPaul's Drag Race," she's also the first Korean drag queen ever to be on television. With her formidable makeup skills and over-the-top anime drag, it doesn't look like she will disappoint in her ambassadorial duties for Korea. Not bad for a queen named after pickled cabbage.
