Park Sae-eun, a member of the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet, was promoted to the rank of "premier danseur" on Saturday.
She is the first Korean and second Asian to reach the second-highest of the troupe's five ranks for dancers: étoile, premier danseur, sujet, coryphée, and quadrille, in descending order.
Park joined the world's oldest ballet company in 2012 and attained the ranks of coryphée and sujet just the following year.
