10 Reasons we're excited for Yoon Eun Hye's comeback drama
Yoon Eun Hye, the fabulous actress who brought us the joys of Goong, Coffee Prince, and Lie To Me is back in Marry Him If You Dare! This new series premieres today on DramaFever and is about a character who travels back in time to give advice to her past self. Old Yoon Eun Hye giving advice to young Yoon Eun Hye? Sign us up! (Oh, and Jung Yong Hwa is her costar, so double bonus!) To celebrate, here are 10 reasons Yoon Eun Hye has won our love in every drama she's ever done.
1. She can rock a bad haircut
Many Kdramas feature awkward female characters in serious need of a makeover, but no one goes all out quite like Yoon Eun Hye. This woman seems to have no boundaries when it comes to painful styling choices, and we love her for it. Remember the bowl cut from Coffee Prince?
Or the unfortunate mop from Lie to Me?
If the promo pics are any indication, her hair will only be getting worse in Marry Him If You Dare.
A+ for effort, Eun Hye.
2. She’s stunningly beautiful…
If you only knew Yoon Eun Hye from her acting, you might assume that she wasn’t much to look at. Take a look at her modeling, though, and suddenly you realize how much effort it must have taken to make her look frumpy. She has a natural beauty that shines through in her photo shoots.
3. But can also make us believe she is a boy
There are a LOT of cross-dressing dramas out there, and 99.99999% of the time, it’s absurd to believe that anyone would mistake these women for men. A bowl cut isn’t a replacement for an Adam’s apple, and it’s a testament to Yoon Eun Hye’s versatility as an actress that she was able to pull of Go Eun Chan so convincingly.
4. She is a good person in real life
Yoon Eun Hye has been consistent in her charity work. Sometimes it can be easy to assume that celebs only give as a publicity stunt, but Yoon Eun Hye has a pretty consistent track record that proves otherwise. She has been working with orphanages since her teenage years. Who doesn’t want to support talent like that?
5.She knows how to kiss
THANK YOU, YOON EUN HYE. Many Kdrama leading ladies hold perfectly still and let the men do all of the work, but that has never been Yoon Eun Hye’s style. She understands that kissing is a passionate two-way street.
6.She creates chemistry with her male leads
This goes beyond just kissing. She builds strong chemistry through all of her interactions with male leads, whether it’s arguing or laughing or bantering. This consistent spark makes her eventual kissing scenes even more believable.
7.Her classy style
Sometimes celebrity styling can go overboard, but Yoon Eun Hye is consistently edgy and sophisticated. I want to become her best friend and then raid her closet!
8.Her crying face
Her crying face gives me a crying face. I just can’t resist those sobs!
9.She is a natural
Whether she is acting or modeling, there is a sense of ease about Yoon Eun Hye that is disarming. Just look at her working this photo shoot with Kim Hyun Joong:
Where I would be making terrified, frozen faced serial killer smiles, she takes on the attitude of “Oh, I’m just sitting here being my charming self while you happen to snap some photos!”
10.We want to befriend her characters
Yoon Eun Hye is known for her quirky, awkwardly endearing characters. We would love to hang out with these people in real life!
From the looks of the Marry Him If You Dare trailer, her newest drama is no exception. What are you waiting for? Go HERE to watch the first episode today and get your Yoon Eun Hye fix!
