    Here’s a list of her works that you should not miss out on!

    The Classic (2003)

    This is the type of movie that you put on when you want a really good cry. Ye Jin’s success soared because of this film, as it was helmed by Kwak Jae Yong, who also directed the widely popular My Sassy Girl.

    Ye Jin plays college student Ji Hye, who comes across a diary that reveals a past love triangle involving her mother, her father, and his father’s best friend. As her own love story with Sang Min (played by Jo In Sung) unfolds, she realizes that what happened to her parents mirrors her relationship with Sang Min. Will the two suffer the same ill-fate or will they have a happy ending?

    Summer Scent (2003)

    If melodrama is your guilty pleasure, then this one is worth watching. It’s part of the Endless Love series, which included the OG koreanovelas Autumn in My Heart starring Song Hye Kyo and Winter Sonata.

    In Summer Scent, Ye Jin stars as Shim Hye Won, a girl with a fatal heart disease who gets a second chance at life after obtaining a heart from a donor named Seo Eun Hye. A few years later, she encounters Yoo Min Woo (Song Seung Heon), whose first love is Eun Hye. As they grow fond of each other, Hye Won is torn about her true feelings — is it because she really likes Min Woo or is because her heart was originally Eun Hye’s?

    As they get to know each other better, Jin Ho inspires Kae In to become a better version of herself and the two start to develop feelings for each other. But what will happen when Kae In finds out Jin Ho isn’t actually gay and the real reason why he moved in with her?
