This week’s burning update question actually comes from a conversation from the podcast. Cherry and I were talking about adult dramas and one of our favorite actresses came up. And then she came up again. Then we wondered what ever happened to… Jung Ryeo Won?
Let’s take a peek at trusty Wikipedia to get a clue.
Hey! Did you know she grew up in Australia? No wonder she speaks English so well. It reminds me of the hilarious scene where you first see her in History of A Salaryman.
Aww…. she won a Top Excellence Award for History, totally deserved, I think. (If you haven’t watched it, do yourself a favor a and watch it today. Where else are you going to see a chicken in a hanbok??)
Turns out she actually hasn’t done a drama since 2015’s Bubblegum–which I totally meant to go watch and yet never actually did.
Fun side note, she’s been in a few music videos, a favorite Epik High video called One and one for one of my favorite bands, Nell.
As there hasn’t been any movies on her bill either, this means she hasn’t actually worked since 2015. Huh. This really is too bad. I know she’s not.your typical drama heroine, but you know what’s better than that? She’s a really good actress.
I hate to say it but this is the first time in the existence of this series where, when asked “what’s happening with…” The answer is nothing. (I even left trusty Wikipedia and nope, the only thing connected with her name was a possible relationship with Nam Tae Hyun from Winner–declared untrue.) It’s also a bummer since this is also the first time we’ve featured a lady in the series. It’s also a bummer x2 because I really do like her as an actress. I was hoping, like in the other posts, the answer to my question would be lots of stuff that I’d just missed so there would be things to look forward to.
