JTBC’s Fri-Sat-Sun drama “Reborn Rich”, which aired on Dec 4th, drew the beginning of a fiercer succession war as the succession principle of the Sunyang family was withdrawn.
Jin Yang Chul’s three siblings, who noticed that Jin Do Joon (Song Joong Ki) was behind the withdrawal of the succession principle, were wary of Jin Do Joon in their own ways. In particular, Jin Hwa Young (Kim Shin Rok) insulted Jin Do Joon’s mother Lee Hae In (Jung Hye Young) and tried to break Jin Do Joon’s spirits.
Actress Kim Shin Rok (as Jin Hwa Young) is captivating viewers regardless of gender with her sharp presence, saying, “Don’t be presumptuous.”
On top of that, many of the couple scenes with her husband Choi Chang Je (Kim Do Hyun) in the drama are said to be ad-libs made by the two together, drawing attention.
Kim Shin Rok’s passionate performance is considered one of the factors for the popularity of “Reborn Rich”. As she is receiving great love from viewers, attention is focused on the activities she will show in the future.
Recently, Kim Shin Rok’s tremendous level of education was revealed, drawing netizens’ admiration.
After graduating from the Department of Geography at Seoul National University, Kim Shin Rok obtained a Master of Arts in Theater and Film at the Graduate School of Hanyang University. She later earned a Bachelor of Arts in acting from the Korean Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Kim Shin Rok, who had been exposed to theater since childhood by following her father (a theater actor), said that her father advised her to “learn life by watching plays”.
She was active in the on-campus theater club while attending Seoul National University. She began studying theater in earnest to “learn life” and has the current academic background.
Kim Shin Rok, who worked as a university lecturer even after debuting through the 2004 play “Survival Calendar”, said, “I promised to become a full-time actress after completing 10 years.” After 10 years as a university lecturer, she quit this job and ended up appearing in the movie “Burning”.
Afterwards, she appeared in a series of dramas such as tvN’s “The Cursed” (2020) and “Beyond Evil”. Kim Shin Rok played the role of Park Jeong Ja, a single mother subject to the first public demonstration, in Netflix’s series “Hellbound” (2021). Her public recognition increased along with the success of the drama.
Kim Shin Rok, who has been busy since “Hellbound” by participating in Coupang Play’s “One Ordinary Day”, Netflix’s “A Model Family” and KBS 2TV’s “If You Wish Upon Me”, is expected to have many upcoming works next year, including Disney+’s “Moving” and Netflix’s “Sweet Home Season 2”. Although platforms and works are sending love calls, Kim Shin Rok is still insisting on the theater stage. This year, she also acted in the play “Heal the Living”.
