Kim Yoo Jung Graduates High School and Starts Filming Drama Clean with Passion for Now

This week is a great double happiness for K-actress Kim Yoo Jung as she graduates high school and starts filming her first K-drama modern rom-com leading lady role in Clean with Passion for Now. I still remember first laying eyes on the teeny tiny Kim Yoo Jung back in 2006 in Iljimae and being enchanted that such a young child actress could be so emotive and natural. Twelve years and countless K-dramas later she’s graduated to leading lady full time, and also graduated from the routine of primary school education. Congrats on balancing an acting career and still going to school to earn her degree, can’t wait to see her in Clean with Passion alongside newly elevated leading man Ahn Hyo Seob (who looks like a cross between Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Woo Bin if you ask me) and second male lead Song Jae Rim.

  1. I commend her for prioritizing her last year in HS and the experiences of a high school teen, which I think would help her grow more as an actress in the long term. I know from accounts that post-Moonlight, she maximize her HS time by attending classes regularly and participating in her school play, turning down projects that would not allow her to attend to her last year in school. And for this year, deferring university to focus on acting, makes me realize that she doesn’t do things half-heartedly, and that’s good to know.

  2. she has a good plan on her head, do the project that she felt like angry mum and moonlight, focus on school – graduating and then pick a project that matches her age range without being too drastic from the last drama, it’s like she steadily climb up

  3. Congratulations, Yoo-jung-ah!

    I’m very excited for her new drama. Jtbc has been knocking it out of the park with Just Between Lovers, Misty, and Laughter in Waikiki, so I have high hopes Clean with Passion for Now will deliver in quality as well.
