This actress could have missed her chance playing in one of the most popular K-dramas.
“Descendants of the Sun”, led by Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki, penned by screenwriter Kim Eun Sook, released in 2016, was a K-drama sensation. In addition to the four leading cast, the drama also successfully boosted the popularity of the supporting actors, helping them gain more love from the audience. One of them is Park Hwan Hee, who played the passionate and devoted nurse Choi Min Ji. Thanks to this role, Park Hwan Hee received more attention when she was only a rookie who had just started her career for a year.
Receiving the huge opportunity to act alongside A-list actors, but an interesting fact is that Park Hwan Hee once turned down the role of Choi Min Ji, and the reason can’t get any cuter. Specifically, Park Hwan Hee is a huge fan of Song Hye Kyo, so she was worried that her lacking performance would affect her senior’s drama. That’s why she didn’t accept the part at first.
After “Descendants of the Sun”, Park Hwan Hee conveniently received many offers to star in famous dramas such as “Uncontrollably Fond”, “The King In Love”, “Jealousy Incarnate”, … Despite having both the acting skills and visuals, Park Hwan Hee was stuck with supporting roles for years. Until now, most viewers still only remember Park Hwan Hee through her role in “Descendants of the Sun” and the time she accused her ex-husband of abuse.
Currently, Park Hwan Hee is 32 years old and has recently landed her first lead role in the movie “Boogie Nights”. Unfortunately, the film did not resonate so Park Hwan Hee has yet to find a breakout role. Having entered her 30s, Park Hwan Hee stuns fans with her youthful beauty.
