K-pop idol-turned-actress Kim Sejeong is one of the K-drama scene’s brightest leading ladies today. Even with only a few shows to her name thus far, this multi-talented star never fails to show her range when it comes to her acting prowess. From her action-packed scenes in The Uncanny Counter to her infectious and comedic performance in Business Proposal, there’s no question why people fawn over her every time she comes out with a new project. If you’re like us and you just can’t get enough of Sejeong, here’s a list of titles where you can see more of her.

6 Korean Shows Starring Kim Sejeong:

1. Business Proposal (2022)

Watch on: Netflix

Adapted from the popular webtoon series The Office Blind Date, Business Proposal is a romantic comedy that follows an ordinary office employee who gets roped into disguising as her best friend on a blind date in an effort to scare the guy away. Everything goes awry, however, when the person she’s supposed to meet turns out to be her company’s CEO and actually asks for her hand in marriage.

Sejeong plays the ever-so-positive Shin Ha-ri who lives a double life as a regular food researcher and as a fake chaebol heiress in the shoes of her best friend, Jin Young-seo. Opposite her is Ahn Hyo Seop as Kang Tae-mu, a cold and arrogant CEO who has it all: money, beauty, wealth, you name it. He slowly loosens up, though, after meeting Ha-ri who has her way of melting that cold heart of his. If you’re into office romcoms, make sure to add this to your watch list.

Also Starring: Ahn Hyo Seop, Seol In Ah, Kim Min Kyu

2. The Uncanny Counter (2020)

Watch on: Netflix

The Uncanny Counter is another webtoon-based drama. This fantasy thriller is about a group of misfits with supernatural abilities who work with their counterparts in the afterlife to fight off evil spirits that prey on humans. Far from the sunny disposition of her character in Business Proposal, Sejeong plays the role of Do Ha-na, one of the Counters. Here, she expertly portrays Ha-na’s cold and strong exterior despite the fact that she actually has a soft heart. The series is OCN’s highest-rated drama so far and has been renewed for a second season.
