Actress Park Hee-bon met her husband – director Yoon Se-young in a drama project.
Park Hee-bon, an actress and former member of girl group M.I.L.K, is well-known for resembling Kim Tae-hee. She owns an outstanding beauty and was once rumored to be Kim Tae-hee’s biological sister. In 2016, she married director Yoon Se-young. It is said that their relationship didn’t proceed properly from the beginning, and Park Hee-bon was refused by Yoon Se-young 15 times.
Park Hee-bon debuted as a member of SM Entertainment’s girl group M.I.L.K in 2001 and became an actress in 2003 when M.I.L.K was disbanded due to Bae Yu-mi’s unexpected departure from the group. However, her acting career has not been easy ever since the beginning.
She appeared in “Rainbow Romance” and “Drama City” but didn’t receive much attention. After failing several auditions, she had to work part-time at a BBQ restaurant to earn her living. Thanks to the introduction of Taeyeon and Kim Hee-chul, who were Park Hee-bon’s close friends and juniors in SM, she was able to star in director Yoon Sung-ho’s web drama “Read My Lips” and started building up her filmography in earnest.
After that, she appeared in various popular dramas, such as “Master’s Sun”, “Doctor Stranger”, and “The Producers”, and impressed the viewers. While carrying out acting activities, she met the partner of her fate. In 2013, Park Hee-bon met director Yoon Se-young after getting cast in web drama “The Cravings”.
Having special feelings for Yoon Se-young, Park Hee-bon confessed, but Yoon Se-young refused her. It is said that the actress tried to confess about 15 times. Director Yoon Se-young shared that he didn’t like the confession to be made at a drinking party. Moreover, he refused her because he couldn’t understand how he could date an actress when it was her who asked him out.
The two then met again as director and lead actor for Season 2 of “The Cravings”. As a result, they became closer while working together and eventually got married. Revealing their wedding photos 10 months after their marriage, the two made headlines again. It was because Park Hee-bon in the wedding photos looked so similar to Kim Tae-hee.
Meanwhile, actress Park Hee-bon, who has steadily appeared in different works and built her filmography, performed enthusiastically in tvN’s drama “Happiness” last year. She also plans to greet the viewers through movie “Silence” this year.
