Lim Eun Kyung, the U40 actress with an ageless beauty: a one-time advertising phenomenon with a lackluster acting career

This beauty is a Korean advertising phenomenon with a bright future. Unfortunately, Lim Eun Kyung’s acting career did not have a happy ending.

Lim Eun Kyung was born in 1984. In 1999, she appeared as an extremely popular phenomenon with the title “TTL Girl” through a series of advertisements by SK Telecom. At that time, the information related to Eun Kyung was extremely vague, making the audience curious about her identity. She did not receive any interviews or reveal any facts about herself. Many rumors revolved around Lim Eun Kyung like she was Japanese or she was actually a man, … making the name of the “TTL Girl” become even more viral. Her surreal beauty in combination with the mysterious strategy of the brand makes Lee Eun Kyung become a sensation in the late 90s and early 2000s advertising industry.

Thanks to her popularity, in 2002, Lim Eun Kyung was invited to participate in Jang Sun Woo’s big-budget sci-fi blockbuster “Resurrection of the Little Match Girl”. The film received many mixed reviews and became a flop work, causing the reputation of Lim Eun Kyung to suffer. Lim Eun Kyung was pointed out to have weak acting skills and that she was just trying to recreate her classic image in TTL’s commercials. Undeterred, Lee Eun Kyung persisted in pursuing acting. Later that year, she returned with her most commercially successful film, “Conduct Zero”. In this film, Lim Eun Kyung has changed the view of the audience on her acting skills by successfully transforming into a naughty, lovely high school girl. This performance earned her a Best New Actress nomination at the 2003 Korean Film Awards.

Eun Kyung then appeared in the popular TV comedy series “Bodyguard” in 2003 and returned to the big screen in 2004, with leading roles in the horror films “Doll Master”, “To Catch a Virgin Ghost” and the romantic comedy film “Romantic Marrying High School Girl”. Unfortunately, all three of these films did not achieve any impressive box-office achievements. After the short sitcom Rainbow Romance, 8 years from 2006 to 2014, the actress didn’t participate in any new projects. It was not until 2015 that she reappeared with a small role in the movie “Untouchable Lawmen”.

Currently, Lim Eun Kyung is 38 years old and no longer active in the entertainment industry. Looking at her daily photos, the audience could not help but be surprised by her beauty at the age of 38 with a gorgeous small face and big, round, doll-like eyes.
