Following “Burning”, Jeon Jong-seo selected “The Call” as her next film. Thanks to her excellent performance in this movie, she won Best Actress at the 2021 Baeksang Arts Awards. Later, Jeon Jong-seo and “The Call” director Lee Chung-hyun developed into lovers. In the end, she succeeded in both work and love through “The Call”.
Less than a week after finishing the filming for her second work – TVing’s web series “Ransom” with director Lee Chung-hyun on April 17th, Jeon Jong-seo confirmed her appearance in the third work, which is Netflix’s film “Ballerina”.
Conflicts often occur between the director and actors on the filming set, but since Jeon Jong-seo and Lee Chung-hyun met each other for the first time through work, they seem to have better synergy as colleagues and as lovers.
In addition, it is known that Jeon Jong-seo will appear in Netflix’s “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area”, which is scheduled to air on June 24th, as Tokyo. Fans are raising high expectations and showing support for the actress.
Jeon Jong-seo recently moved to Hollywood to collaborate with famous actors, such as Kate Hudson and Zac Efron, in “Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon”. This movie was premiered at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, which was held last year. With her back-to-back successful roles, movie fans have been calling her “monster actress”.
