The “enemy” of Hyeri in “Reply 1988” after 7 years: an outstanding visual who never lived up to her potential 

Despite appearing in only one episode of “Reply 1988”, this actress became the talk of town.

Despite being a 7-year-old K-drama, “Reply 1988” is still an indisputable classic, and one of the must-list names when it comes to healing series. Alongside the major cast, which consists of Hyeri, Park Bo Gum, Ryu Jun Yeol, Go Kyung Pyo, Lee Dong Hwi, Ryu Hye Young, and more, actress Lee Soo Kyung, who only starred in one episode, also managed to attract attention. 

In “Reply 1988”, Lee Soo Kyung transformed into the rebellious high school student Soo Kyung, who stalked the female lead’s brother, No Eul, in hopes of becoming his girlfriend. After her encounter with his sister Duk Sun (played by Hyeri), however, Soo Kyung engaged in a serious fight and was taken to the police station, where her true identity was revealed. In particular, Soo Kyung used to be a good student who became rebellious after losing both of her parents. She dyed her hair using beer and started to stalk No Eul, as he was the only person who treated her normally without pity. With such a heartfelt yet gripping story, Soo Kyung and her character managed to become a hot topic despite their brief appearance.

Born in 1996, Lee Soo Kyung was a rookie actress while filming “Reply 1988”, and yet took up 4 projects in that same year. However, it was the 1-episode appearance in “Reply 1988” that was her most remarkable project in this year. Lee Soo Kyung also seemed to be more fond of the big screen, and over 7 years of her career, the actress only appeared on the small screen 5 times, while having starred in 12 movies. Unfortunately, despite playing major characters on various cinematic works, Lee Soo Kyung was not able to make a striking impression to the public, and it was only until the 2021 series “Law School”, which featured Kim Bum, Ryu Hye Young, and more, that Lee Soo Kyung managed to gain some relevance.
