K-actress Lee Bo Young has cultivated an enviable acting career in the last decade, arguable more popular, successful, and beloved than her first decade. Between the ratings hits, cult faves, and critically lauded performances, she just radiates this capable and deliberate vibe, like she knows exactly what she wants to act in and goes and make it happen. It’s girl power for sure and her next drama taps into that – she is in talks for the second half of 2022 jTBC drama (Ad) Agency, which can’t figure out if it wants to add the word Ad into the title or go with the pithy one word take. It’s set in the advertising world and follows the female lead as she climbs the ladders and becomes the first chief executive, so think modern day Mad Men but a lady is in charge. Less sexism and more finding ways to tap into the modern woman’s psyche and thereby her wallet in targeted ads. It sounds like a role she will suit seamlessly and I hope the drama doesn’t skew towards the makjang is all.

i love what she’s done for her career. she reminds me of reese witherspoon’s unwillingness to stick to the same uninspiring roles that late 30s-40s actresses are relegated to. love these ladies making their own way!
She really ages like fine wine. I remember thinking she was pretty and also pretty bland in the first half of her career. The second half – she radiated talent and charisma. Actors can still grow and surprise you in their 30s!
@prettyautumn She said she had to take on so many projects early on her career, and got burnt out. She had to find her passion for acting again. She is a bit under-appreciated because she doesn’t get named often in the best actors lists. Jo In Sung is another actor who also grew into a strong talent in his 30s.
yep this true, i have seen this case on the twilight lead actors. a decade since the movie ended, they are now well respected in hollywood.
this is why i wouldnt easily dismiss bad actors since there’s still room for growth.
Definitely looking forward to this because Lee Bo Young is an amazing actress. Love her and her works. So beautiful as always.
