Movie Child Actress Kim Sae Ron turns 18 Years Old

It’s her birthday and I don’t think Kim Sae Ron will be crying even if she wanted to. The youngest of the three Kim child actresses dominating the last decade of K-dramas and movies turned 18 on July 31st, with a 2000 birth year following in the footsteps of oldest Kim So Hyun born in June of 1999 and then Kim Yoo Jung in September of 1999. Unlike her two older unnis, Kim Sae Ron hit peak child actress fame not on television with drama roles but in one breakout movie lead role in The Man From Nowhere with Won Bin, and has followed that up with a more robust movie career and doing about one drama a year. I love her lovely aura and distinctive features, she looks exactly like she did as a kid ten years ago except all grown up into a young lady now. Good luck in her adult role transition and hopefully she keeps picking good acting projects. Continue reading
