Controversy over Lim Ji Yeon’s acting skills and adult scenes has been washed away thanks to Netflix’s “The Glory.”
Lim Ji Yeon completely erased the controversy over her acting skills, which has been following her like a shadow. This is the story of Lim Ji Yeon as she challenged her 1st villain role with Netflix’s “The Glory.” She was once only remembered for her “nude acting” after her unconventional bed scene during her rookie days, but now she has proved her acting skills through “The Glory.”
Following the success of “The Glory”, its cast is currently the hottest topic online. In particular, Lim Ji Yeon is said to have portrayed her first villain role creepily well. In “The Glory,” Park Yeon Jin, played by Lim Ji Yeon, is the main culprit of the school violence that has plagued Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) life. Born into a wealthy family, Park Yeon Jin just enjoys the evil act itself for no reason and does not feel any guilt. Lim Ji Yeon’s convincing performance as an extreme villain makes viewers angry.
At the beginning of her debut, Lim Ji Yeon mostly showed shocking revealing scenes in 19+ films such as “Obsessed” and “The Treacherous.” After that, Lim was stuck with the word “bed scene” rather than “acting.” Her acting was also evaluated as lacking delicate emotions. Lim then attempted to transform into a bright and confident character with “High Society.” She was evaluated as having improved her acting, but it was still not enough.
Lim Ji Yeon finally cleared up the controversy over her acting skills with “The Glory.” Let’s take a look through the works that make Lim Ji Yeon the actress she is today.
