If you live anywhere around Asia, it is impossible to not hear the name Jun Ji-hyun (Gianna Jun in English). Throughout her career, the actress displayed exemplary acting skills making her movies and series garner popularity and high ratings.
In 2021, two new shows are waiting for Ji-hyun's fans— the much anticipated special episode, Kingdom: Ashin of the North, and the action-packed Mount Jiri.
As we wait for Ji-hyun's return on TV screens, Tatler looks back and lists some of her most iconic roles.
1. My Sassy Girl
Who could ever forget Ji-hyun's 'tough on the outside, soft on the inside' character in My Sassy Girl? The film, which was directed by Kwak Jae-yong, is based on a true story told in a series of blog posts written by Kim Ho-sik.
It has amassed high viewership and was South Korea's highest-grossing comedy of all time. The movie's success across Asia even drew comparisons to James Cameron's Titanic.
