The actor who last broke hearts in Scarlet Heart made an appearance on Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo this week.
Ji Soo, who first turned heads in Angry Mom (which is one drama to watch, if ya haven’t) played a package delivery employee in a scene where Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is job hunting in Episode 11. His character later triggers the jealousy of one Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk)
Scene is even cuter knowing the real-life bromance between the two. Ah, adorbs.
It took me forever to figure out: who is this lady?
The lady in red in The Lonely Brilliant Goblin is Lee El (aka Kim Ji Hyun), often cast in supporting roles. What – thought we wouldn’t notice? Especially with all that color symbolism.
She looks so familiar, yet so hard to place, it probably drove you nuts.
She was in It’s Okay, That’s Love – but I have no recollection of her in it (and never finished watching it). She was in a bunch of dramas I never got into – Monster, Imaginary Cat (sadly I saw the first few eps), My Beautiful Bride, Divorce Lawyer In Love, Maids, Liar Game, Mother’s Garden. 7th Grade Civil Servant (saw most of it but still can’t recall her from it), The Princess’ Man.
Hmm. Maybe she just has that face.
She had a solid cameo in Entourage as Ho Jin’s (Park Jung Min) new client in Episodes 13 and 14.
And this guest star role was with none other than Park Hee Bon. Love her!
She played Ji Yeon Hee, Eun Tak’s mother, in the first episode of Goblin: The Lonely And Great God. The supersized episode (it’s 90 mins long) of Goblin is the most notable premiere this past week, and it is of the epic nature. It’s got the sweeping saga status of a feature film, replete with folklore and fantasy-based characters, decent CGI, visually stunning production design, and a haunting soundtrack (in a good way).
Park Hee Bon is known for playing many of the best friend or sidekick roles on kdramas (see The Master’s Sun), but she’s also had umbrella couple status of her own. Or check her out in indie gem Let Me Out with Kwon Hyun Sang.
As a crucial background character in Goblin, I was pleasantly surprised to see her.
