Did you know Im Soo Jung has only been in 2 dramas throughout her career? She starred in the fourth installment of KBS’s hit high school series “School 4″ (2000-2001), which had a knack for casting (then) unknowns such as Jang Hyuk, Lee Dong Wook, and Bae Doo Na.

It’s been a little over 10 years sing Im Soo Jung’s last drama, so who wouldn’t want to see her grace our small screens again? We can dream, huh?
