She’s the villain who could make our blood boil, but a sweetheart in real life. Meet actress Lim Ji Yeon, who recently made headlines for her dating news with actor Lee Do Hyun, her co-star in The Glory.
In The Glory, Lim Ji Yeon showed her acting chops when she landed the role of Park Yeon-jin — the rival of Song Hye Kyo’s character Moon Dong-eun. Meanwhile, Lee Do Hyun played the role of Joo Yeo-jeong — Dong-eun’s partner and executioner.
While the series played a huge role in Lim Ji Yeon’s rise to fame, we’ve rounded up other K-dramas which show off her acting range.
4 K-dramas starring Lim Ji Yeon
1. Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area
You can watch Money Heist: Korea on Netflix.
2. The Royal Gambler

3. High Society
High Society takes us to where it all started for Lim Ji Yeon. Despite its mixed reviews, High Society allowed Ji Yeon to make her small-screen debut. Add it to your watch list if you’re a fan of Uee and Park Hyung Sik too. In the drama, Ji Yeon switches lives with Uee’s character and gets a taste of the life of an heiress of a chaebol (owners of a wealthy conglomerate) family.

4. Lies Hidden in My Garden
Lim Ji Yeon will star alongside actress Kim Tae Hee (known for Hi Bye, Mama!) in an upcoming K-drama that’s giving us The Glory vibes. Lies Hidden in My Garden (also known as House with a Yard) is a suspenseful thriller about two women with different personalities whose lives intersect when a mysterious smell of a corpse emanates from one of their backyards.
It will premiere on 19 June in Korea. Stay tuned for its release in Singapore.
