Choi Ji-woo korean girls names

Choi was first discovered when she won a talent audition organized by MBC in 1994, and made her debut in the 1995’s War and Love, after which she adopted the stage name Choi Ji-woo.

In the next couple of years she would star in both dramas and films, including The Hole (a Korean remake of Hollywood thriller Hush) and the romantic comedies First Kiss with Ahn Jae-wook and The Romantic President with Ahn Sung-ki. But it was her portrayals on TV of tragic heroines with a pure and innocent image — notably in Truth opposite Ryu Shi-won and Beautiful Days opposite Lee Byung-hun — that boosted her rising popularity.

It was in 2002 when she reunited onscreen with Bae Yong-joon (she previously had a supporting role in his 1995 drama First Love) that she would star in her most famous, iconic role. Directed by Yoon Seok-ho as the second installment of his “season dramas”,[1] Winter Sonatabecame a phenomenal hit throughout Asia and has been credited as one of the initiators of the Korean wave.[2] As a result Choi gained wide pan-Asian recognition, especially a huge following in Japan where she acquired the nickname Ji-woo Hime (“Princess Ji-woo”). In 2009 she and Bae reprised their roles as voice actors for Winter Sonata Anime. She continues to be a lucrative star and brand in Japan, fetching high licensing/broadcasting rights for her dramas and selling out concerts and merchandise (tvN E News compiled a list of the top Hallyu stars in Japan based on their approximate gross incomes for the first half of 2011, and Choi was #5 with approximately $2 million USD[3]).

After the success of her 2003 drama Stairway to Heaven with Kwon Sang-woo, Choi again attempted to break into film. She played a familiar role in the melodrama Now and Forever and a more risque character in sex comedy Everybody Has Secrets (a Korean remake of Irish filmAbout Adam). Both films were poorly received by critics and audiences.

Choi then spent the next few years overseas, shooting the Japanese drama RONDO opposite Yutaka Takenouchi and the Chinese drama101st Proposal. She returned to Korean television in 2007 in Air City alongside Lee Jung-jae; her role was the Chief Operating Officer ofIncheon Airport.

In 2009 she starred opposite Yoo Ji-tae in the drama A Star’s Lover, playing a top actress who falls in love with an ordinary man. Choi received W48 million per episode of A Star’s Lover, the highest salary for a Korean actress at the time (her record has since been broken byGo Hyun-jung’s W55 million for the 2010 drama Daemul). That same year, she set up her own management company called C,JW Company. She also joined the ensemble cast of semi-improvisational Actresses, arguably her most significant film yet.

During the press conference for 2011 series Can’t Lose co-starring Yoon Sang Hyun, which features a lawyer couple facing their own divorce suit, she was asked if she worried about shedding her pure and innocent image. Choi said, “I’ve had the same image for 15 years. Isn’t it time for me to break out? I was a melodrama queen and now I want the title of romantic comedy queen.” She added that she had gained more fans after showing her cheerful, easygoing side as a guest on the reality show 2 Days & 1 Night.
