At the age of 41, actress Lee Yoo Ri drew admiration for her beauty.
K-drama actress Lee Yoo Ri, who was born in 1981, gained popularity for her awesome portrayal of antagonists in well-known dramas such as “Twinkle Twinkle” (2011) and “Jang Bo Ri is Here!” (2014). Although she has both eye-catching looks and solid acting skills, it still took Lee Yoo Ri years to finally shine. She started out with minor roles in series such as “Best Theater”, “Hur Jun” from 1999. In 2001, Lee Yoo Ri landed her first supporting role in “School 4”.
Debuting at an early age, but for 10 years, Lee Yoo Ri could not really make a name for herself. It was not until 2011, when she was cast in “Twinkle Twinkle” that Lee Yoo Ri officially left a strong impression. She was so good at playing an antagonist that she later nailed another villainous role in “Jang Bo Ri is Here!”, receiving more attention from the audiences. Lee Yoo Ri’s acting in such detestable characters is so believable that she even shot to fame as the “nation’s villain”. Lee Yoo Ri herself once admitted that she is the most hated villain on the Korean small screen.
However, the huge success with antagonistic roles also brought Lee Yoo Ri a lot of trouble when some viewers failed to separate actors from their characters and assumed that she was also mean in real life. Lee Yoo Ri once shared that she was even called “evil” by passersby while filming an outdoor scene. The video recording that moment once went viral as netizens felt sorry for Lee Yoo Ri.
Lee Yoo Ri is best known for her villain roles, but she also quickly stepped out of her comfort zone, challenging herself in many different types of characters. In particular, she drew praise from viewers for her ability to act in touching and emotional scenes. Thanks to her trustworthy performance in every comeback, from the “nation’s villain”, Lee Yoo Ri became one of the “rating queens” of Korean dramas.
Currently, at the age of 41, Lee Yoo Ri is still working hard filming and modeling. She recently cut her hair short, showing off a refreshing new image. Looking at her selfies, few would expect Lee Yoo Ri to have entered her 40s because of her youthful beauty.
