Lee Min-jung was a late starter in the world of Korean entertainment. Whereas most starlets launch their careers as teenagers, she debuted at 25 after graduating from Sungkyunkwan University with a degree in Theater.
After several years doing supporting roles, she became a household name in 2008 through her role as Ha Jae-kyung in the popular teenage seriesBoys Over Flowers, which then landed her her first leading role in the weekend dramaSmile, You. Her romantic comedyCyrano Agencywas the sleeper hit of 2010, and became the breakout film for the actress, who grabbed five best new actress awards in Korea and rose to stardom.
Commercials and endorsements flooded in for Lee,who gained a "goddess" label in the press.One of the challenges of her next filmWonderful Radiowas to strip her of that image.She successfully carried the film, with one review praising as "expertly swinging from girly ditz, through self-centered pop diva (with memorable temper tantrums), to serious singer-songwriter."Co-star Lee Jung-jin said her actual personality is similar to the character's -- "really upbeat and outgoing."
After playing a disillusioned fiancee to an ambitious fund manager inMidas,Lee returned to the romantic comedy genre in the body-swapping TV seriesBig.
Her maternal grandfather is famed artist Park No-soo, considered one of the Korean masters.
