Lee Sung Kyung is one of the premier actresses in the world of K-show business. From endorsements to dramas, she is always an in-demand celebrity. Being a versatile actress herself, she was given roles who were extremely different from each other, however, she nailed them every. single. time.
Here are some of the characters the Lovely SungKyung put life into:
Kim Bok Joo (Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo)
The passionate and simple-minded character of Kim Bok Joo was SungKyung’s first lead role. Paired with Nam Joo Hyuk acting as Jung Junhyung, they exuded their remarkable chemistry on and even off-screen. The coming-of-age drama showcased the life of a striving college student for success in the field of sports, and also experiencing the fun of being with friends and a special someone. Kim Bok Joo also loves to eat with friends and even shared her special strategy to make the most out of their samgyup-dinner nights! Swaaaag~
Oh So-Nyeo (It’s Okay, That’s Love)
Lee Sung Kyung entered the world of acting with her character Oh So-Nyeo in the drama It’s Okay, That’s Love starring Jo Insung and Gong Hyojin. She was a sassy high school dropout who worked in a coffee shop and took advantage of Soo-kwang (Lee Kwangsoo’s character) who had feelings for her. Eventually, they fell in love with each other.
Jin Seo-woo (Doctors)
She was a victim of an unrequited love: a student admiring her science teacher, Hong Ji-Hong (played by Kim Raewon) who happened to like her classmate-slash-best friend Yoo Hye-Jung (played by Park Shinhye). They all became doctors and became rivals in the field of medicine. Sungkyung once mentioned in an interview that she was worried about her character in this drama because she’s the total opposite of her, but was also relieved when she revealed her matured side in the end.
Baek In-Ha (Cheese in the Trap)
The very dramatic and materialistic character of Baek In-Ha was well-portrayed by the fashionable and expressive Lee Sungkyung. Though she may have received lots of criticisms by viewers by her “over acting”, she gained lots of attention from new fans. Spoiler alert: she turned cray-cray in the end of the show!
Choi Michaela (About Time)
For the second time, Lee Sungkyung is given the lead role in the drama About Time. Michaela, aka Mi Ka, has the ability to see people’s life spans. Given this ability, she knew that she only had a few days on earth and wanted to live longer to reach her dream of becoming a successful musical actress. She then found refuge from Lee Do-ha (Lee Sangyoon’s character) who could happen to stop the ticking of her life-clock. With all the twists and turns in the story, they fell in love with each other.
All these roles presented very distinct personalities, but still, Queen LSK gave them justice by her superb acting. Which character of Lee Sungkyung do you like the most? Who do you think is the most relatable? We can’t wait for her next acting project!
