She was once considered “national younger sister” thanks to her pure and sweet look.
Before IU, there was another “national younger sister” who took over the entertainment industry. It was Jeon Hye-jin, who played Jang Eun-sil in the drama “Eunsil,” one of the “national younger sisters” in history who received so much love. She was a girl who was good at acting with her big eyes.
From 1998 to 1999, when the drama was aired, Korean society was in the worst economic situation due to the IMF crisis. The story of Eunsil, who did not lose hope against the backdrop of Korea, which faced even more difficulties around the 60s, drew sympathy from many viewers at the time.
Since then until 2010, she continuously appeared in dramas. However, since she married actor Lee Chun-hee (at the age of 22) in 2011, the public had not seen her on the small screen for a while.
After that, there were many fans who were happy to see her in the web drama “May 32nd (2018)” and tvN ‘Mother (2018)‘. Recently, she is sharing her beliefs about the environment with viewers in the eco-friendly entertainment show “No impact day”.
And recently, it’s reported that she will make a comeback in the JTBC drama ‘My Liberation Diary‘, which will air in 2022. Not many fans remember ‘Eunsil‘ now, but she is still a precious actress Jeon Hye-jin.
