In celebration of Jun Ji-Hyun's birthday, let's take a look back at some of the Korean star's best fashion moments

Jun Ji-hyun or as she’s internationally known, Gianna Jun is one of the most recognisable faces not only in South Korea but all throughout Asia. With 24 years in the business, Jun has established herself as a top Hallyu star and helped spread the Korean wave across Asia.

The actress rose to popularity following her breakout role in the iconic romantic comedy, My Sassy Girl which remains as one of South Korea’s highest-grossing Korean comedies in the South Korea. The movie quickly launched Jun to pan-Asia stardom. Following her continuous popularity, Jun eventually made her Hollywood debut in Blood: The Last Vampire and went on to work in other movies such as A Man Who Was Superman, The Thieves and The Berlin Wars. After 14 years away from the small screen, she made a comeback in 2003 with My Love from the Stars and further solidified her superstar status.

With multiple acting awards under her belt including two Grand Bell Awards and a Daesang (grand prize), Jun is no doubt, one of the biggest stars of her generation. Loved for her elegance and beauty, Jun also made a reputation as a fashion icon—after all, she’s the highest-paid Korean celebrity despite only returning to acting this year in Jirisan. In celebration of Jun's birthday, let’s break down how her fashion style has changed over the years.
