Korean actress Kwon Nara’s childhood dream was to be a stewardess, but during her teen years, her growing passion for acting and singing pushed her to audition as a trainee for Fantagio Entertainment (home to K-pop groups like ASTRO and Weki Meki).

While active in the K-pop scene, she pursued supporting roles in dramas on the side. She made a full transition to acting in 2019 when Hello Venus disbanded. Since then, she has won fans over with her charm and acting chops, while climbing the ranks as one of K-dramaland’s most promising stars. The epic K-drama Bulgasal: Immortal Souls is her biggest project to date!
