Song Joong Ki’s sister-in-law from “Reborn Rich” takes real-life inspiration?

The gorgeous visuals and charming aura of Song Joong Ki’s sister-in-law from “Reborn Rich” has become the talk of town. 

Within just 3 episodes, the new K-drama “Reborn Rich” has surpassed 10% in viewership ratings, setting a new record among JTBC series. With its outstanding popularity in Korean, cast members other than the main trio Song Joong Ki, Lee Sung Min, and Shin Hyun Been are also drawing attention – actress Park Ji Hyun being one of them.

In “Reborn Rich”, Park Ji Hyun assumes the role of Mo Hyun Min, the eldest daughter of Hansung Ilbo’s owner who married into the Sunyang Group. Compared to her cowardly husband, Mo Hyun Min is much stronger, more decisive, and has huge ambitions. In fact, right from her first appearance, she has exuded an untouchable aura, representative of a woman that has been standing on the top of the world.

In addition to her visuals and vibe, Park Ji Hyun also draws attention for resembling the “Samsung Princess” Lee Boo Jin, who is managing the Hotel Shilla franchise. As a successful businesswoman of the Samsung family, Lee Boo Jin is nicknamed “the most powerful woman in the world”, and exuded an unmistakable air of regality. Side by side, Park Ji Hyun’s character and Lee Boo Jin are so similar, many netizens raise the question if the screenwriter of “Reborn Rich” took inspiration from real life.

On the other hand, Park Ji Hyun, born in 1994, made her acting debut in 2017, and is currently an artist under Namoo Actors. Compared to her more mature and cold looks on the small screen, the actress is actually a youthful and refreshing beauty in real life. She also spends a lot of time on ballet dancing, and so moves with a grace and allure unique to this elegant craft.

5 years into her career, Park Ji Hyun has become known for her professionalism and natural acting in various projects, such as “The King in Love”, “Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung”, “Do You Like Brahms”, “Yumi’s Cells”, and most recently, “Love All Play”. Hopefully, she will earn even more well-deserved attention after “Reborn Rich”.
