Jung Yoo-mi

Jung Yoo-mi (정유미) (born January 18, 1984) is a South Korean actress. Jung Yoo-mi debuted in short films, notably How to Operate a Polaroid Camera. Shortly after the then-aspiring actress impressed critics in feature film Blossom Again, in which she gave an engrossing performance as an emotionally vulnerable teenager experiencing her first love, thus sweeping most newcomer awards that year. Her next film Family Ties was also critically acclaimed. Jung's filmography is a diverse mix of arthouse indies such as The Room Nearby and Cafe Noir, cult monster flick Chaw, odd-couple romantic comedy My Dear Desperado, and melodrama Come, Closer. The Crucible, inspired by true events about a group of handicapped children who suffer physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their teachers, drew nearly 5 million viewers and became the highest grossing film that Jung has starred in. Her ability to portray the lives of ordinary people in ways that are not ordinary have made her one of the most sought-after actresses for auteurial films, as evidenced by her continued collaboration with director Hong Sang-soo.
