Actress who was once accused of assaulting her co-star: Runner-up in a beauty contest, still very attractive in her 60s

Kim Cheong was a well-known beauty in the 80-90s. 

Once accused of physically abusing a co-star

Kim Cheong, born in 1962, once came under fire when a junior actress, Heo Yi Jae, accused her of taking advantage of a drama scene to physically assault her co-star.

Specifically, in the drama “You are a gift”, Heo Yi Jae had to film many scenes of her character being beaten by Kim Cheong’s character. In a scene where Kim Cheong hit Heo Yi Jae, Heo Yi Jae suffered a drop in blood pressure. She was shocked because she was constantly grabbed by her senior by the hair. 

Heo Yi Jae asked to take a break but Kim Cheong refused, saying that if she let go of her hair now, her emotions in the scene would be interrupted. Heo Yi Jae also said that Kim Cheong intentionally wore a very large ring on the day of filming to slap her.

The director even asked Kim Cheong to remove the ring because it might hurt Heo Yi Jae, but Kim Cheong didn’t agree. As a result, Kim Cheong put on that ring and slapped Heo Yi Jae very hard.

After this incident, Heo Yi Jae even quit acting for many years. She only had the courage to speak up later to call out Kim Cheong. In response to such allegations, Kim Cheong stayed silent.
