For many of us, our first and perhaps most memorable recollection of South Korean actress Gianna Jun Ji-hyun is her role in the 2001 romantic comedy My Sassy Girl. Her career, spanning over 20 years, has been marked with multiple highs and acting awards. For those who miss her on the screen, Gianna has made her small-screen comeback after five years, starring opposite Kingdom‘s Ju Ji-hoon in tvN’s mystery thriller drama Jirisan. In the show, she plays Seo Yi-kang, an expert park ranger known for her knowledge. Jirisan can be streamed on iQiyi.
As one of Korea’s top stars, Gianna maintains a relatively squeaky clean image and favourable reputation — all thanks to the good moves she has made. We take a look at how Gianna has inspired us to become better versions of ourselves, at work and in life.
