If K-actress Jang Hye Jin picked lottery numbers I would follow suit because the lady is winner winner chicken dinner level of awesome in her project selection. I wondered where this awesome actress came from when I saw her in Crash Landing on You playing the rich North Korean mother of the second female lead, her antics in trying to learn English and being a total tryhard was brilliantly done. Then I realized she was the completely unrecognizable poor mom of the family in award winning movie Parasite and was just floored, cannot believe it is the same woman AT ALL in acting or looks. Jang Hye Jin has only done two dramas so far, she’s been a solely movie actress since 1997, but her other K-drama is the ratings hit When the Camellia Blooms so dang she’s on fire. She actually is reuniting with another Parasite costar and equally awesome character actor Park Myung Hoon, who plays her brother in Crash and in Parasite played Lee Jung Eun’s basement dwelling husband. The fact that Crash is so good is also due to having so many excellent supporting actors from the North Korean side including the Binnie’s army boys.
LOL, me too just realized that she is Ki Taek’s wife from Parasite. In Parasite, she killed him, her brother in Crash Landing ?
Thanks for the spoilers 🙁

Stop the spoilers!!!
She’s d*mn good that’s for sure! I was blown away by her talent when I saw her performance in Crash Landing on You. She had me in stitches. Hope to see more of her future work.
I’m sorry but in what scene did she show up in When Camellia blooms? Was she really in that drama because Wikipedia didn’t list her name in the cast.
I also don’t recall her being in Camellia… was it a small cameo??
Or maybe Koala you got her mixed up with Lee Jung-Eun who played Dong Basel’s Mom? She was also in Parasite as the previous housekeeper.
Oops typo… Dong Baek (not Basel) hahah
