The growth status of actress Jo Eun-hyung, who impressed viewers by playing the younger counterpart to Kim Min-hee’s Hideko in the movie “The Handmaiden”, was revealed.
Jo Eun-hyung attended the VIP preview of the movie “Decision to Leave” held at CGV Yongsan I’Park Mall, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on June 21st. Afterwards, she released photos taken inside the theater and photos taken with Kim Tae-ri after the preview on her Instagram story.
Jo Eun-hyung smiled brightly in Kim Tae-ri’s arms in a space believed to be a restaurant. It may be an emotional meeting for the two people who appeared together in the movie “The Handmaiden”, which was released 6 years ago.
Kim Tae-ri still boasted her beauty and aura after 6 years, but it was Jo Eun-hyung who caught the eye. As she became a high school student, she exuded an innocent yet mature vibe, drawing attention.
When “The Handmaiden” was released 6 years ago, Jo Eun-hyung was 11 years old. In the work, she played young Hideko and was praised by the audience for outstanding acting skills that were not like her age.
Director Park Chan-wook talked about Jo Eun-hyung at that time, “She’s a great actress. In the existing scenario, young Hideko was in the three age groups 5, 8 and 10 years old. However, after seeing actress Jo Eun-hyung’s acting during the audition process, I was convinced that she could do all the acting of ages alone.”
Jo Eun-hyung’s recent photos became a hot topic on online communities. Netizens left comments such as “When did she grow up like that?“, “She’s really pretty“, “I’m looking forward to it when she becomes an adult“…
Meanwhile, director Park Chan-wook‘s “Decision to Leave” tells the story of Hae-jun (Park Hae-il), a detective who is investigating a case of unnatural death in the mountain, meeting Seo-rae (Tang Wei), the wife of the deceased, and feeling suspicious and interested at the same time. It will be released on June 29th.
