Jang Nara: A brilliant career ruined by a statement and marriage at the age of 41

Once had an extremely monumental career, but Jang Nara fell seriously when caught in a scandal.  At 41, she is getting married.

More than 10 years ago, Jang Nara was a famous name in the Korean entertainment industry.  At that time, besides musical activities, Jang Nara also had an impressive career as an actress.

But because of a scandal, Jang Nara completely ruined her career.  Up to the present time, the actress, in her 40s, is no longer standing at the peak of her career.

After achieving success in Korea, Jang Nara entered the Chinese market and quickly became famous with Asian audiences through hit series including “My Bratty Princess”. 

Ruined her own career with a statement 

Jang Nara had a big career in China but of course nothing can go smoothly forever.  After a while, Jang Nara’s popularity in China also gradually decreased.

Along with that, while she was focusing on the Chinese market, Jang Nara’s name was gradually forgotten by the Korean public. Later, she returned to Korea to rebuild her name, but the appearance of numerous new actresses put Jang Nara behind.

In an interview with Korean media, Jang Nara caught attention when she said that she came to China to act because of “money”.  “Every time I lack money, I go to China to work,” said Jang Nara.

The actress’s statement at that time made the Chinese audience extremely angry.  After that, even though she apologized, Chinese TV stations, producers, and audiences turned their backs on her, which led to her career going downhill.

During Jang Nara’s career, the actress has also been entangled in many dating rumors.  At the time of filming “My Bratty Princess,” Jang Nara was caught up in dating rumors with Alec Su. Both sides have denied it, but many people still believe that this couple really “had something to do with each other”. There are even rumors that Alec Su is no longer dating anyone because of his love for the Korean actress.

Jang Nara was also involved in dating rumors with Park Bo Gum. There were also rumors that the actress would marry actor Kim Nam Gil.
