The reason why the viewers got emotional was that Jung Eun-hye is actually a person who has Down Syndrome. Jung Eun-hye, who plays the role of Young-hee, who dreams of becoming an artist, in the drama, is a caricature artist who draws people’s faces in real life. In addition, she starred in the 2005 movie “Seaside Flower” and the 2006 movie “If You Were Me 2” as the main character.

The behind cuts of episode 14 released by the production team of “Our Blues” also included friendly moments of Han Ji-min and Jung Eun-hye. The two showed off their close friendship by sticking to each other all the time during the filming break. 

Han Ji-min can also be seen on the Facebook account of Jung Eun-hye. Among the photos she posted, the one in which she was holding Kim Woo-bin’s hand affectionately caught the eyes of netizens. The viewers showed enthusiastic reactions to Jung Eun-hye’s happy moments with Han Ji-min and other actors.
