Jung So Min, born Kim Yoon Ji, is a South Korean actress who debuted in 2010 with the role of Hong Mo Ne
in the SBS drama Bad Guy led by Kim Nam Gil. She is best known for her portrayal of Oh Ha Ni, the leading
lady in the 2010 MBC drama Playful Kiss (Korean adaptation of the Japanese manga series Itazura na Kiss)
alongside Kim Hyun Joong (SS501). Before her acting debut, she has been featured in a number of music
videos and commercial films and played small parts in several films.

She studied ballet in elementary and middle school. In high school she studied Korean traditional dance
and has won many awards. She says that if she had continued to dance, she would like to have traveled to
other countries to spread Korean traditional dance. Aside from dancing, she also likes to take part in
sports like soccer and baseball and is good at physical fighting.

She took up acting classes to receive help for the emotional expressions for her dancing, but felt
that she'll have more fun acting than dancing during the first day of class. Rather than pursuing a
dancing major as originally planned, she took the exam to enter the acting major of the Korea National
University of Arts (K-Arts) and was accepted as a top student.
“Although Oh Hani hasn’t received assurance of love from the man she has kept in her heart, she is a girl that is always smiling and happy. Therefore, her smiling face is very important. When I saw Jung So Min’s big smile, I was certain that she was the one.”
- PD Hwang In Roe, Playful Kiss

“She (Jung So Min) is an actress who is making her debut through our drama. She is a junior at Korea National University of Arts, a great dancer and has a little experience in movies. I thought the part of Mone should be played by someone who has a clean, innocent feeling and energy, and I like Jung So Min's pure face. There are many actors who undergo plastic surgery these days but I like her face, which doesn't look like it had surgery and has a certain young vibe”PD Lee Hyung Min, Bad Guy

“I’d like to be the kind of actor who is remembered for my character. You know how there are cases where even when you watch all the way through the end of a drama, you remember the actor’s name, not the character’s. I want my character’s name to be more remembered than mine.” - Jung So Min

Regarding her natural acting, the viewers commented, “Is she really a new actress?”, “She doesn’t seem like she’s had any plastic surgery done.”, “Perhaps it’s because she is from the Korea School of Arts. but her vocalization and face expression acting skills are superb.” and etc.

The viewers continued that Jung So Min’s natural, non plastic surgery face reminded them of Yoon Eun Hye and showed their interest in her by calling her the “2nd Coming of Yoon Eun Hye.”

Bad Guy's Jung So Min apologizes to Yoon Eun Hye


According to the Sports Seoul article released on 6/15, Jung So Min stated, "I'm happy with the nickname of the 2nd coming of Yoon Eun Hye." She further stated, "Before my debut, I had heard that my mouth area was similar to Ms. Yoon Eun Hye, but now people are saying that my entire aura is similar to her. I'm grateful to be compared to such a good actress."

Actress Jung So Min apologized for the words that she is similar to Yoon Eun Hye Sunbae.

Jung So Min first appeared in the SBS Wednesday & Thursday drama, 'Bad Guy' as the youngest daughter of the Hae Shin Group’s Mo Ne. When the first episode aired, the viewers stated that the new actress, Jung So Min’s facial features and voice was similar to Yoon Eun Hye.

On the 14th, 'Bad Guy' opened it's shooting location to the public at a house in Kyung Gi Do. At this location, Jung So Min stated, ”I feel that I need to apologize to Yoon Eun Hye SunBaeNym.”

In regards to the surprising reactions of the viewers, Jung So Min said ”Im sorry because SunBaeNym (YEH)’s name has been talked about (in this manner) against my intentions. ”Before the debut, I had been told a few times that I looked similar to her around the mouth area, but this is the first time that people have told me that I was completely similar to her.”

Jung So Min then apologized to Yoon Eun Hye by stating ”I feel grateful and sorry to Yoon Eun Hye SunBaeNym.”

[iNTERVIEW] Actress Jung So-min

Reporter : Choi Ji-Eun Photographer : Chae ki-won Editor : Jang Kyung-Jin Editor : Lucia Hong


Korean actress Jung So-min [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]

My name is Jung So-min. My friends and I had a contest to pick out my stage name but I myself chose the name. I was born on March 16, 1989. I am a junior at the Korea National University of Arts majoring in acting but I'm currently taking a semester off.

My family consists of my mom, dad and my little brother who is a senior in high school. I get into fights with my brother but they don't last for more than five minutes. We hang out a lot because I really like him and I'm glad he doesn't think I'm annoying. (laugh)

I learned ballet from elementary school until middle school. I had to quit because my parents were against it and I started to learn Korean traditional dance when I was in high school. If I continued to dance I probably would have done work relating to visiting other countries to spread the Korean traditional dance.

When I was a senior in high school, my dad didn't know that when I took my college entrance exam I changed my major to acting. I told him after I was accepted and he was furious. I think my dad began to change his mind when he received the tuition bill for my college and saw that it was zero won because of my scholarship. (laugh) I think that was when he began to trust me.

However, my grades after entering school were...We have a saying in our school 'Don't think about graduating if you haven't been on academic probation at least twice.' It's because we are assigned a lot of work and the schedule is tight. It was hard to maintain my grades while working really hard and sleeping only three or four hours a day.

This year for the school play, I was cast to play the role of Hermia for Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and it was quite sad because I had to take a semester off to shoot "Bad Boy." There aren't that many opportunities to be in a traditional play.

When I was still in school I really liked physical education. I remember that I won an award in the long run against other students at school and I'm also good at physical fighting.

I actually like to take part in sports rather than watch them. I was the only girl who took part in the soccer match during the "Bad Boy" rally. I'm better in baseball than other girls and actor Kim Jae-wook told that my pose is similar to that of a major league baseball player. (laugh)

I've only seen actor Kim Nam-gil on television and it was hard to approach him at first because he seemed so serious but after getting to know him, we joked around a lot. The yacht scene during the first half of "Bad Boy" was shot during March. So it was really cold and after the cameras went off I was shaking because I was wearing just a dress.

There are people who say I look younger than my age and others say that I'm very grown-up like. Veteran actress Kim Hae-ok, who plays my mom in "Bad Boy," said I'm like a high school student wearing regular clothes and kept saying "You're like a 15-year-old!" (laugh)

My first paid gig was a commercial for SK Telecom (a telecommunication company in Korea). I gave the entire paycheck to my mom but she accepted it without even blinking an eye. She said "Don't think that you can make things up to me with this. You don't know how much money I spent on you!" (laugh) Of course I still get an allowance.

When I get my allowance all I do is eat. (laugh) I also like to buy things for others. When I have the money I spend it and buy things thinking "So and so will like this!"

I try to watch a play at least once a week or every other week. My managers and I bawled after we watched the play "The Most Beautiful Goodbye" which was originally written by writer Noh Hee-kyung. Afterwards when I went home, I told my mom that I would do my best. (laugh)

I am also interested in musicals. I began to learn to sing after my college entrance exam but unfortunately I'm not gifted in it. I thought if I practiced I would get better but if I had to evaluate myself objectively? I don't see it happening. (laugh)

My favorite movie genre is thrillers and reasoning movies where you have to use your brain. I became interested in thrillers because of the movie "Identity." I also enjoyed watching "Our Town." I don't really like action movies but I like films that have action and create tension like "Taken."

The thing that I want to do the most is to get a florist license. I don't have any skills in art but I like flowers and matching them with different colors. When I act or dance my actions are shown directly but I really want to learn how to create a different feeling with these pieces. However, the tuition fee is a bit too expensive...

Jung So-mins marine girl shoot for In Style


I like this marine-themed shoot of Jung So-min in In Style, because not only is it pretty to look at, it could pretty much be taken from the set of her current drama Bad Guy. (If Bad Guy were a happy drama, that is, rather than a mystery thriller.) The first time we meet her character Mo-nae, in fact, is on a yacht that her rich character has been given as a birthday present.

Through the drama, Jung So-min has essentially become famous overnight; its her first drama role. She says that her role was the one that PD Lee Hyung-min took the longest time to deliberate over. He told her, Mo-nae does everything she wants and doesnt stay discouraged, so when youre acting dont lose any of your confidence.

This spread and accompanying interview will be in Julyls issue of In Style Korea. Bad Guy resumes airing this week after a two-week hiatus due to World Cup coverage.

Jung So Min to romance Kim Hyun Joong in Playful Kiss


Days earlier, we revealed that Park Eun Bin and Jung So Min had emerged as the final candidates for the opportunity to be cast in the upcoming drama, Playful Kiss.

Well, the result has finally been revealed by Group Eight on July 16th who have decided to cast Jung So Min, who will now move on from Bad Guy and romance Kim Hyun Joong in Playful Kiss.

PD Hwang In Roe who had personally chosen her, expressed,

“Although Oh Hani (female character name) hasn’t received assurance of love from the man she has kept in her heart, she is a girl that is always smiling and happy. Therefore, her smiling face is very important. When I saw Jung So Min’s big smile, I was certain that she was the one.”

This will also be Jung So Min’s second drama after debuting in Bad Guy. She had edged out 100 others who had auditioned which included Park Bo Young, Park Shin Hye, f(x)’s Sulli, KARA’s Seungyeon, Park Eun Bin, etc.

Filming will begin soon and it will air from September 1st through MBC.
