Actress Jung Yi-seo is twenty-eight years old. Despite her age, Jung Yi-seo is also a relative latecomer to acting, her first listed credit being in “Ducktown” which was filmed in 2016. But persistence has paid off for the actress. A brief role as a pizza franchise owner in “Parasite” led to a prominent role in “Drama Special – Goodbye B1” further increasing her exposure. And now long after her debut, Jung Yi-seo is only playing now students.
In “Snowdrop” Jung Yi-seo Played the president of a university social group, a noteworthy for being able to intensify the tension of the scenes in which she appeared. In her many often brief roles, Jung Yi-seo has exhibited a wide variety of performances, and is not easily recognizable from one to the next. In “MINE” which has been her biggest role to date, Jung Yi-seo played a soft-spoken maid who falls in love with the character played by Cha Hak-yeon to unfortunate consequences.
And now in ‘All of Us Are Dead’ Jung Yi-seo Appears as Hyeon-joo- the unfortunate young woman who foolishly allows herself to be enticed into trying to pet an adorable rodent under isolation. The viewer suspects, though Hyeon-joo can’t possibly know, that the small animal has been zombified. Jung Yi-seo‘s profile has improved thanks to these performances, and has already been confirmed for the detective melodrama film “Decision to Leave” which is expected to be released some time this year.
