Before Kim Shin of Goblin, we have Mi Ho (Shin Min Ah) from My Girlfriend is a Gumiho whom we also cannot risk to cry or feel sad. This drama series aired in the Philippines a decade ago; however, you should worry less as you can look forward to her upcoming drama with Kim Seon Ho, the Seaside Village Chachacha!
Shin Min Ah was chosen as a model for Kiki, a teen magazine, after sending her picture with her friends during their school picnic. Through this, she received the opportunities to appear in different commercials and music videos. In 2001, she made her acting debut in the film, Volcano High. Four years later, she had a breakout performance in a movie, A Bittersweet Life, and it was later followed by her major roles in various movies and drama series.
Different roles of light to heavy genres– she can greatly perform these that let me adore her more. At a young age, she was able to influence me to appreciate the South Korean actresses as I was amazed by her acting skills in her successful drama, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. Some of you surely find her familiar due to her remarkable roles and dramas that already aired in our country!
