I remember that I met a girl in a club and she was more beautiful than any of the girls that I've ever met. And her name is Jina.

Here, any of the girls that I've ever met can refer to both the girls that I'd met before I met Jina in the club and the girls that I met after I'd met Jina in the club, because present perfect refer to a unspecific time, which could be before or after an specific event. Am I right ?

It is true that "present perfect refers to a unspecific time". But what you say is not enough to explain the use of present perfect in your sentence.

Your example fits into this one:

We use present perfect when we are talking about our experience up to the present:

Note: We often use the adverb ever to talk about experience up to the present:

My last birthday was the worst day I have ever had.

Note: and we use never for the negative form:

Have you ever met George? Yes, but I’ve never met his wife. -

To be more clear about your sentence, "any of the girls that I've ever met" refers to the girls that I'd met before I met Jina in the club.
