While Netflix’s “The Glory” is receiving explosive responses, information about the leading actors is also drawing netizens’ attention.
On January 16th, TMI (hobby, educational background, second job, etc.) of actresses Lim Ji Yeon, Kim Hieora, and Cha Joo Young, who play three villains in Netflix’s original series “The Glory”, was posted on online communities.
First of all, Lim Ji Yeon, who portrays Park Yeon Jin, revealed her hobby in a Q&A video uploaded on the Youtube channel of ESQUIRE on December 31st last year. The actress said, “It’s definitely working out. I’m doing deadlifts and recently lifted 80kg. But no one believes that. People who really love sports don’t like listening to music. They only focus on the number of times and the weight”, revealing herself as a fitness enthusiast.
In addition to working out, Lim Ji Yeon also enjoys Pilates, rock climbing, and boxing.
Kim Hieora, who appears in “The Glory” as Lee Sa Ra, made her debut in the musical “Jack the Ripper” in 2009. The actress plays a painter who takes illegal drugs in “The Glory”, but she is in fact a true painter who is recognized for her talent.
Thanks to her excellent painting skills, Kim Hieora even held an individual exhibition of her own paintings. She also ran a cafe in Daehak-ro and released a single album containing her story in 2021.
Lastly, Cha Joo Young, who plays Choi Hye Jung, appeared in an interview video uploaded on Allure Korea’s Youtube channel on January 19th and corrected the information about her academic background. The actress said, “I entered Utah State University and transferred to Utah University and my dad persuaded me to go back to Utah State University and graduate there. I attended both universities and graduated from Utah State University, but it comes out like this on the portal site. I’m telling you this just in case you get mistaken”.
In addition, Cha Joo Young once said she wanted to work as a drummer in an indie band someday because her hobby is playing drums, kendo, and doing modern dances.
Meanwhile, Lim Ji Yeon, Kim Hieora, and Cha Joo Young are receiving favorable reviews for their acting performances as Park Yeon Jin, Lee Sa Ra, and Choi Hye Jung, the school bullies targeting Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo) in “The Glory”.
