Known for their top visuals, but these Korean actresses still had times when they looked like “a mess” on the screen to perfect their roles.
Although the following Korean actresses are always associated with gorgeous, stunning and delicate images that capture the audience’s hearts, there were actually times when they appeared on the screen with unbelievably messy and out-fashioned looks. These Korean beauties were not hesitant to let go of their flawless images for the roles to deliver the most realistic experience to the viewers.
1. Son Ye Jin
Son Ye Jin is one of the most famous Korean actresses with a timeless beauty because it seems like she has not aged a day. Although she has reached her 40s, Son Ye Jin still looks young and gorgeous as ever. However, few people know that even the goddess Son Ye Jin once looked like a total slob in “Personal Taste”. Her character Park Kae In in the drama is described as a successful woman who does not know how to dress and put on makeup.
2. Hwang Jung Eum
When it comes to the most impressive makeovers of K-drama female leads, it is impossible not to mention Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) of “She Was Pretty”. Before becoming a pretty “swan” in later episodes of the drama, Hwang Jung Eum was willing to turn herself into an ugly and unattractive “duckling”.
3. Yoon Eun Hye
In the case of Yoon Eun Hye, many people regretted her beauty since she didn’t keep her natural charm but did plastic surgeries too many times. Most specifically, in “Love Alert”, the viewers couldn’t recognize the natural facial features she used to have. Some even pointed out signs of her aging in several close shots.
4. Kim Min Jung
It is said that Cha Do Ha (Kim Min Jung) in “Man To Man” was the character who received the most criticisms in K-drama history. Appearing in an old-fashioned hairstyle, Kim Min Jung made the audience even more frustrated because of her excessive acting of always opening her eyes widely in front of the camera.
5. Jun Ji Hyun
Jun Ji Hyun has always been mentioned as a sexy and elegant goddess. However, she once surprised everyone with her unexpected image in “Legend of the Blue Sea”. In this drama, she plays Shim Chung, a mermaid who comes to the human world. She always acts strangely because she doesn’t know anything about life on the ground. Therefore, it is said that many viewers were annoyed when they saw the scene in which she even picks thrown-away clothes to wear.
