Bio

One of Korea’s sweetest actresses, Lee Young-Ae, casts aside her popular image to play the enigmatic Lee Geum-ja, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance’s angel of vengeance Lee Young-Ae’s first substantial role came in 2000, when she co-starred in Park Chanwook’s JSA: Joint Security Area. The serene young actress brought just the right amount of selfconfidence to her role as a Swedish army major (of Korean descent) investigating an armistice threatening scandal on the border between North and South Korea.

But Lee achieved fame throughout all of Asia later, first when she starred in Hur Jin-ho’s One Fine Spring Day as an attractive but selfish divorcee, in a showcase for her special charms and quietly nuanced acting. In 2003, she starred as the cheerful and strong character Jang-geum in the hit TV drama ‘The Jewel in the Palace’, which drew the highest audience ratings for that year for Korean television and went on to become an international success. Lee starred as a simple, if self-possessed young countrywoman who becomes a cook to the imperial household during the Chosun dynasty. Cast out of the palace thanks to the machinations of a ruthless rival, she later returns as the first woman to become the royal family’s physician.

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is thus both a challenge to Lee’s talents and to her fans’ preconceptions of her. Based on the film’s overwhelming critical and audience responses, the challenge was well met.

Behnaz She is really one of the best korean actress, I love her for ever. Also I congratulate her for her babies It's very good news. Hope she and her family be very happy in their life and also hope to see more films from her.

Irene Her twins are 1 years old by now, this is from sangchusan.blogspot.com: The 40-year-old actress surprised her fans when she announced that she got married to her Korean-American boyfriend, Jung Ho Young, on Aug. 24, 2009 in Hawaii. Lee was able to keep her love life secret and no announcement was even made regarding the engagement or the wedding. The wedding ceremony was held in the US to keep it private.

She even kept her pregnancy a secret. It was only last January that it was announced that Lee was pregnant and was expected to give birth this month.

Lee catapulted to immense fame when she starred on “Jewel in the Palace” (aka “Dae Jang Geum”) in 2003 as a royal doctor. The period drama became a hit in many countries including the Philippines. “Jewel in the Palace” was credited for popularizing hallyu, or the Korean Wave, in Asia.

After the series ended in South Korea, Lee starred in the film “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” in 2005, which earned her best actress awards.

However, Lee retreated to her private life after the film and has not made any drama or movie until now.

Instead, she focused on her studies, earning a master’s degree at Joongang University and then enrolling in a doctoral degree at Hanyang University in South Korea last year.
