“Glass Slippers” actress boasted youthful beauty at 39, a rising career ruined by her celebrity husband

This Korean actress, who starred in “Glass Slippers”, “Mine”, and “Hot Stove League”, almost got canceled due to her husband. 

It has been 20 years since the release of classic K-drama “Glass Slippers”, which brought many cast members to stardom, including actress Kim Jung Hwa, who played So Ji Sub’s sister in the series. While this was only a minor role, the influence of “Glass Slippers” was enough to draw Kim Jung Hwa a lot of attention, and altered her life. As a result, the actress later appeared in various other big projects, including “Snow White”, “War of Money”, “Life Is Beautiful”, and many more.

However, despite her talent and striking beauty, Kim Jung Hwa wasn’t able to maintain her popularity. Eventually, the only reason that kept her in the limelight was her marriage with famous singer Yoo Eun Sung.

In 2021, the actress finally managed to reclaim some of her previous fame after starring in “Mine”.  As the mysterious lesbain ex-lover of the female lead, Kim Jung Hwa managed to make headlines despite her lack of screentime. 

Things seemed to be finally looking up for the actress, only for her husband to single-handedly destroy it all with his controversial words. In particular, when asked about his wife playing a lesbian character, Yoo Eun Sung immediately replied: “As a couple, we are against homosexuality”. 

The response drew immediate attention, with netizens criticizing Kim Jung Hwa and Yoo Eun Sung’s perspective, and questioning why the actress decided to play a character she herself disagreed with. Accordingly, the positive reactions towards the actress were also gone.

After this controversy, Kim Jung Hwa is still taking on new roles with little success. The actress often updates photos of her daily life, where she boasts outstanding visuals and physique despite being in her late 30s. Unfortunately, such an appearance doesn’t have much chance to appear on the screen.
