Currently starring in the drama, Jang Ok Jung, Lives In Love, Kim Tae Hee is an extremely popular Korean actress. Her most famous roles are in Love Story In Harvard and Iris. She also was in the classic Korean drama, Stairway to Heaven. Since Jang Ok Jung is ending soon, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to some interesting facts about the beautiful, smart, and talented, Kim Tae Hee:
1. Before her role in Jang Ok Jung, Kim Tae Hee did not like historical dramas and was only interested in the role because she enjoyed reading the script.
2. She’s currently in a stable relationship with Rain (Bi), the superstar and world renowned singer and producer.
3. She was one tough cookie when she was younger and fought with her brother and the the other boys in the neighborhood.
4. She maintained perfect grades for three years in a row in middle school (she’s a smart cookie too!)
5. She hasn’t gotten plastic surgery before (allegedly), making her one of the few actresses without plastic surgery.
6. Many Japanese citizens think that Kim Tae Hee hates Japan because she was seen handing out Dokdo related materials in Switzerland. (Dokdo is a group of small islands that’s a disputed area between Japan and Korea).
7. Her nickname in high school was “headbanger” because she would often drift off to sleep during class and her head would bob.
8. She went to Seoul University for a degree in Fashion Design.
