There isn't much info about this K-Drama Idol which I'm going to feature this week. But I decided to feature her anyway since I truly enjoyed the character she played on her current drama airing in my country right now. She plays the wicked best friend to the lead actress. The drama I'm rambling about here, is 49 days. And the K-Drama actress in this week's featurette is... Seo Ji Hye.
Name: Seo Ji Hye
Age: 27 years old
Birthday: August 24, 1984
Hobbies: Games, Reading
Debut in Movies: Voice Letter (2005)
Most Recent Drama: 49 Days (2011)
Seo Ji-hye started her career in the drama world in 2003 with a minor role in the drama, All In. She starred in several dramas after that until her break in the movie scene finally came her way.

She was cast as a lead role in the movie, Voice Letter in 2005 as Seon Min, the best friend of the top singer at an all girls school, who is brutally murdered by a music sheet cutting her throat. Like most Korean horror movies, Voice Letter's plot is filled with a lot of twists and horrifying scenes in between. And on a side note, don't skip the credits, for at the end, there's a cut-scene that's going to surprise you. That same year, she won the MBC Drama Awards, "New Face Actress" (2005).
In 2008, she was cast in a romantic comedy drama I Love You. In I Love You, Seo Ji Hye played a lovely and agile schoolgirl. Accidently, she met and spent an one-night stand with an artist, played by Anh Jae Wook, who is 14 years older than her. She becomes pregnant after this whirlwind tryst and thus their lives becomes intertwined and they end up getting married. In an interview, she revealed that when she was in high school, she had a schoolgirl crush on Anh Jae Wook, claiming that she once fantasized that he was her boyfriend and this dream came to realize when they worked on the drama. A teenage-dream come true, right?
Her most recent drama is 49 Days. Seo Ji Hye plays Shin In Jung, Ji Hyun’s backstabbing best friend who is secretly having an affair with Ji Hyun’s fiancee, Kang Min Ho. She kept the facade of being the reliable best friend but secretly harbours ill-feelings towards her best friend, wanting to see how miserable Ji Hyun could become if she was left with nothing. And not only does she steal her best friend's man and secretly wish to see her best friend fall from grace, she is also conspiring with him to steal Ji Hyun's fortune and her father's business.
But in the end, she realizes that Ji Hyun was the only genuinely true friend, was filled with remorse and regret for everything she's done. She is so effective in her portrayal as In Jung, for I wanted to rip her eyes out whenever she comes to a scene. I highly recommend you guys find the time to watch this drama. It's a bit lengthy (and a little sluggish), but the twists of the plot will surely entertain you.
So that's all for this week, folks. Tune in again next week for another dose of K-Idol galore.
