Gong Hyo Jin’s Profile (공효진)

Gong Hyo Jin
In every role she always appears simple and her acting was always extraordinary.
First time I saw her acting was as a young teacher in “Sang Doo! Lets Go To School” (2003) and Rain as her student. Later in “Hello My Teacher” (2005), as Na Bo Ri, she played as a teacher again but this time, Gong Yoo who became her student
And the role of the most draining tears as the audience ess her endurance as a young mother who must take care of her daughter who suffer HIV in “Thank You” (2007).
In “Pasta” (2010) she looked really enjoyed her role as a young chef and could spread a good spirit through Seo Yu Kyung’s character.
She is a down-to-earth figure and in every role she played sometimes she can look very mature and sometimes very silly look like a child … and I thought it was clever.
Frankly saying, she isn’t very pretty, but I like her figure because she always presents herself as a cheerful, simple and natural character… any way, her fashion is always cool! B)
