Actress Lim Jiyeon drew attention when she was selected as a model following Jeon Jihyun for a cosmetics brand.
At that time, when she was still a rookie, despite only wearing basic makeup in the commercial, Lim Jiyeon boasted flawless beauty, revealing her clean, moist skin without blemishes.
Through the movie “Obsessed”, Lim Jiyeon emerged as a rising actress with her sensual yet innocent appearance and uniquely mysterious aura. She was honored with the 2014 Grand Bell Awards Best New Actress Award for her acting.
After that, Lim Jiyeon tried to transform her acting by challenging various genres in order to escape the quiet and innocent image of her previous works.
In the drama “High Society”, she appeared as the bright and honest part-timer Lee Ji Yi, showing her fresh romance with a chaebol son. In “Blow Breeze”, she played a North Korean defector and showed her North Korean accent.
In addition, she has consistently proved her acting skills by appearing in movies “Lucky,” “Tazza: One-Eyed Jacks,” dramas “The Royal Gambler,” and “Welcome 2 Life,” and has continued her busy work in 2022.
In TVING’s original drama, “Rose Mansion”, she especially did a great job at the mystery thriller genre by playing Ji Na, who tracks down her suspicious neighbors to find her missing sister.
In “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area Part 2”, a remake of a Spanish drama aired on Netflix, Lim Jiyeon appeared as a mysterious character from North Korea, a new character named Seoul, changing the atmosphere of the series.
Challenging various characters, she chose “The Glory” as her last work in 2022. This drama, which will be released on December 30th, is one of the most anticipated dramas thanks to the writing of golden screenwriter Kim Eun Sook and the appearance of Song Hye Kyo. It is about a woman whose soul was shattered by violence in her childhood and risked her entire life to meticulously prepare for revenge.
In ”The Glory”, Lim Jiyeon plays Park Yeon Jin, the main antagonist. Park Yeon Jin is a perpetrator who was born with everything and causes school violence without guilt, and is the target of revenge of the female lead Moon Dong Eun.
Lim Jiyeon revealed that this was her first villain role. She said, “At first, I had a lot of worries. I thought I should refer to a famous villain or a charming villain, but eventually, I wanted to play Park Yeon Jin, someone only I can do.” Attention is focusing on whether Lim Jiyeon will be able to clearly show off her presence to the viewers.
