Stellar Blade’s protagonist, Eve, was based on the South Korean model Shin Jae-eun. When Game Director Hyung-Tae Kim officially confirmed fan suspicions in an interview with Push Square, where the developer explained the reasoning behind the move. 

“We thought that [Shin Jae-eun’s] body shape would be a good reference for the character that we were pursuing. But the face was created originally in-house – it’s just the body of the model that we scanned for the game.”
