Kim Yoo Jung Has Thyroid Condition and Drama Filming Halted for Near Future

I so love this InStyle Korea pictorial with young actress Kim Yoo Jung, fresh from graduating high school and ready to dive into her first K-drama rom-com leading lady role. This is an up close and personal shoot and I’m envious of the exquisite complexion of Kim Yoo Jung to let the camera capture thus. But this new pictorial was released the same week news broke that she may need to undergo emergency surgery for a thyroid condition and will be out of commission for the next few months.

She’s currently filming K-drama Clean With Passion for Now with male leads Ahn Hyo Seob and Song Jae Rim, playing a messy and cheerful girl that melts the heart of an OCD male lead running a cleaning company. The drama production has announced that it will halt everything and wait for her return rather than replace her with a different female lead. It sounds cute enough and is based on a webtoon with established narrative already so hopefully Kim Yoo Jung hits another ratings gold as her first followup drama since Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. Wishing Kim Yoo Jung a speedy recovery above all else! Continue reading
