According to a Korean netizen’s compilation, more than 50 female stars have mentioned Son Ye Jin‘s name with admiration, which really shows the influence of the “nation’s first love” within the industry. Here are some of the most popular names.
Starting from Son Ye Jin’s latest female co-stars, Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun. The trio worked together in the recent drama Thirty Nine, where they played three best friends.
