If you’re a fan of survival audition show Produce 101 like we are, chances are, you already know Kim Sejeong, one of the members of I.O.I, the first-ever project girl group to debut from the show. After I.O.I went their separate ways, she went back to her agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, where she debuted with fellow I.O.I member Mina in the girl group Gugudan. Fast-forward to a few years later and she's now a successful solo artist. But Sejeong isn't just a talented singer and dancer—she's good at acting and variety shows, too. If you want to see more Sejeong on your to-watch list, read on and check out these dramas and variety shows:
