The actress who will fight against Song Hye Kyo in upcoming K-drama has an admirable career and visuals
Currently, Song Hye Kyo is filming for the upcoming K-drama “The Glory”, which is set to premiere during late 2022-early 2023. Starring alongside her is rising actor Lee Do Hyun, raising expectations about an epic collaboration.
However, the second female of the series, who will be going against Song Hye Kyo’s character, is drawing attention as well. And this role is assumed by none other than the 1990-born actress Lim Ji Yeon.
Lim Ji Yeon first rose to stardom via the movie “Obsessed”, where she worked alongside the 14-year-older actor Song Seung Hun. When it first aired, the movie stumbled into heavy controversies, as it was filled with R-rated scenes of the main couple.
Talking about “Obsessed”, Lim Ji Yeon expressed that she felt pressured when acting out these scenes, but the overall story kept her going. Meanwhile, Song Seung Hun also showered the actress with praise, and cited her immersive acting abilities.
After “Obsessed”, Lim Ji Yeon continued to star in the R-rate movie “The Treacherous”, which is also filled with love scenes. The actress shared that she was drawn to her alluring character and interesting script, and gained the title “the queen of adult scenes” starting from this project.
While Lim Ji Yeon gained popularity via seductive roles, the actress actually boasts an extensive versatility, proven via her appearances in works like “High Society”, “The Royal Gambler”, “Blow Breeze”, “Welcome 2 Life”, and most recently, “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area”. She has also won Best Actress at the MBC Drama Awards.
As “the queen of adult scenes”, Lim Ji Yeon’s visuals are quite formidable, and the actress also owns an enviable physique. Coupled with her acting ability, she will make for an interesting opponent of Song Hye Kyo in “The Glory”.
In “The Glory”, Lim Ji Yeon will transform into Park Yeon Jin, who used to bully Song Hye Kyo’s character in the past. With her powerful background, she grew to become a wealthy lady and wife to a CEO.
Lim Ji Yeon as a villain creates for an intense chemistry, and her battle against Song Hye Kyo will be a sight to see, both literally because of their visuals, and figuratively in the drama.
