Rising South Korean actress, Shin Ye-eun has been grabbing our attention due to her great acting. Just like any other actress, Shin Ye-eun started with small roles before taking roles for mainstream TV shows.

From a good girl to a rebellious teenager, to a psychotic villain, to a clumsy guest house owner, Shin Ye-eun proved that she can nail any role that can either make audiences sympathize, hate, or love her character.

Here’s a timeline of Shin Ye-eun’s throughout her career so far:

Do Ha-na of “A-Teen”

In her first acting role, Shin Ye-eun portrayed Do Hana, a girl with a strong personality who is caring towards her friends, is confused about what she wants to do with life, and harbors secret feelings towards Ha Min (played by Kim Dong-hee).

Just like any other teenager, Hana had a crisis about what she wanted to do with her life but in the end, through her friends, she realized she can use her hobby and skill in art as her career.

Yoon Jae-in of “He Is Psychometric”

Cold and distant, Jae-in is not far from Do Ha-na’s strong personality. However, unlike Shin Ye-eun’s previous role, this one takes a more serious approach as her character has a deep dark secret.

Like Do Ha-na, Jae-in also likes to keep a strong face and not let people think she is weak. But she also has a soft spot for Lee An (played by Park Jinyoung) and their ‘Grumpy-Sunshine’ tandem is sending us all the kilig feels!

Kyung Woo-yeon in “More Than Friends”

From a light and sweet story, Shin Ye-eun shifts to a more mature character for this heartbreaking K-Drama.

Kyung Woo-yeon has always liked her best friend, Lee Soo (played by Ong Seong-woo). Despite confessing to him many times, she always gets rejected but continues to like him. All things change when Woo-yeon starts entering a serious relationship with Joon-soo (played by Kim Dong-jun) and Lee Soo starts getting jealous and realizing his feelings for his best friend.

Shin Ye-eun perfectly depicts what it’s like to fall for your best friend and risk your friendship. Her cries and dialogues make us feel that her character is a real person that we can’t help but relate to and cry over.

She will be associated with three men: Kang San (Ryeo Eun), Kim Shi-yeol (Kang Hoon), and Jung Yoo-ha (Jung Gun-joo) who are scholars and guests in her inn.

After her controversial role in The Glory, Shin Ye-eun proved that she can shift to a lighter and more comedic role for this K-Drama.
