You guys, I can't believe Kim So Hyun is only 21 years old. Like. Really?? She's accomplished sooo much at such a young age and I'm so proud of her! She's been in the showbiz industry for more than a decade now, and through the years she's played the younger versions of maaany K-drama actresses, she had her fair share of teen high school characters, and the list of her historical drama roles is pretty impressive, too. I, for one, will never forget her role as Bo-kyung in Moon Embracing The Sun (I hated the character so much, LOL).
