After doing a very successful spotlight on actor Jung Kyung-Ho who played Arnold Kang in Smile Honey, I now give you a piece on Lee Min-Jung who played Jasmine Seo. Many viewers may find Lee Min-Jung vaguely familiar. That’s because she actually played a small part as the ex-girlfriend of Lee Min-Ho in the hit K-drama Boys Over Flowers.

Smile Honey is actually the first leading role of the model turned actress. However, she has acted in supported roles in several K-dramas before. Aside from Boys Over Flowers, these include lesser known titles like Who Are You?, Kimcheed Radish Cubes, Love Me When You Can, and Love Sympathy.

I have yet to see any of Lee Min-Jung’s other K-dramas (since I wasn’t really hooked on Boys Over Flowers) or her movies. But apparently she has done several movies such as Cyrano Agency, White Night, Searching For The Elephant, Pruning The Grapevine, Moodoori, and Someone Special.

But what I find really interesting is how Lee Min-Jung actually starred with Jung Kyung-Ho in two music videos. The Smile Honey couple was featured in the two-part music video by Zia for “Violin” and “A Man’s Love”. I can’t find a complete upload of the music video on youtube but here are two compiled versions.



Lee Min-Jung is also a very popular CF (advertising commercial) model, having been the face of several brands. She has also been with Jung Kyung-Ho in the Dewoo commercial for the car they developed in “Smile Honey” which I posted HERE. Recently, Lee Min-Jung was also featured in the MindBridge ad campaign with Coffee Prince star, Gong Yoo.

Personally, I don’t think Lee Min-Jung is a great actress – yet. But she has one superb talent going for her. More than her acting ability, what she has is that innate charm and honesty in how she makes relationships with other characters believable. Regardless of who her partner in a scene is, she makes the dynamics of her character’s relationships with them come alive. In short, she has the power of chemistry with anyone – not just men but even women she acts with.

Here is her filmography:

    I started watching Boys Over Flowers over the weekend just to see Lee Min-Jung there. And yes, she was adorable! She’s very pretty with short hair. She really knows how to do that spoiled rich girl role without being irritating. What’s funny is that her character there reminds me a lot of her character as Jasmine Seo in Smile Honey. Except for the fact that she’s like an action star in Boys Over Flowers. LOL >:)
