Kim YooJung is famous as one of the iconic Hallyu actresses loved by K-Drama fans and Korean film enthusiasts all over the world. In fact, many are looking forward to her upcoming release of the Netflix film “20th Century Girl”.
She is known in Korea as ‘the nation’s little sister’ as many have watched her grow up onscreen over the years.
Take a look at this video highlighting her career from 6 years old to 22 years old.
Another one of her affectionately given nicknames is the ‘historical drama fairy’. She earned the nickname as a result of starring in some of the most popular historical K-Dramas including “Moon Embracing the Sun”, “Love in the Moonlight”, and more recently “Lovers of the Red Sky”.
Her fairy nickname is not only fitting in regards to her acting but also applies to her as a person. Not only is ‘fairy’ one of the Korean meanings of her name, but fairies are regarded as creatures with magical powers. Kim YooJung’s charm fits perfectly into that.
For one, her acting is chillingly brilliant. She has many iconic scenes in her filmography that will leave you with goosebumps at her acting prowess. Whether she is acting out a bright and lively role or cast in a production with darker/sadder subject matter, Kim YooJung pulls it all off exquisitely.
She has quite the acting range and duality.
However, Kim YooJung’s talent doesn’t stop at her acting. Many may not know this, but she is also an incredibly talented singer. She has sung a number of times on various programs and received praise for her sweet-sounding vocals.

Kim YooJung is also well-known for her refreshing beauty. She has natural glowing visuals that brighten up any space that she is in. This explains how she is one of the models for Korean cosmetics brand Laneige.
Her visuals paired with her lovable personality, mean that no one would be able to resist her fairy-like charm.
She is also well-known for her artistic talents. Her paintings are creative and aesthetic, despite the fact that she is completely self-taught. We love that she can express herself through art!
