[HanCinema”s Idol Actors] Jeong Yong-hwa and Kim Hyun-joong

"Heartstrings" gave Jeong the leading role and reunited the popular coupling between him and Park Shin-hye. Again Jeong"s acting was rocky, but the experience he gained from "You"re Beautiful" definitely showed, especially in the line delivery and the more relaxed body language. Jeong is an actor who learns a lot from experience.

This was shown in "Marry Him If You Dare" where Jeong was once again a second lead. At times Jeong was very convincing as Park Se-joo. It helped that he worked beside immensely talented and experienced actors who he could learn from and emulate. But there were still moments where his acting was visible. He wasn"t Park Se-joo, but Jeong Yong-hwa acting like Park Se-joo.

In his upcoming drama "Three Musketeers", hopefully Jeong will show continued improvement on his acting so that his efforts remain hidden and the audience only sees the results

Jun Ji Hyun Is The Richest K-Drama Actress

By in News posted Oct August 7th, 2014 No comments

 

The beautiful apartment that Jun Ji Hyun lived in when she played the Hallyu star Chun Song Yi in "You Who Came From The Stars" was actually a set specially built for the drama. But in real life the actress owns an impressive amount of real estate.

Many Korean actors and entertainment executives choose to invest their earnings in real estate but Jun Ji Hyun tops the list of real estate holdings among k-drama and k-movie actresses.

A wealth-tracking website named appropriately Chaebul.com, says that the appraised value of buildings owned by Jun Ji Hyun in Seoul totals about $13 million.

The factors that the site uses to appraise real estate value may fall short of actual market value, meaning that if she sold her properties tomorrow, they would certainly earn her more
