If you can’t get enough of Korean drama Crash Landing on You, don’t worry, we completely understand. Apart from the RiRi couple (a.k.a. Captain Ri Jeong Hyuk and Yoon Se Ri), audiences were also hooked with the secondary leads in the series. Case in point: the fierce and beautiful Seo Dan, played by Seo Ji Hye, who is initially paired with Captain Ri thanks to an arranged marriage. Ji Hye has been acting for 18 years, and her filmography covers lighthearted rom-coms, thrilling action dramas, and more. If you’re looking for more titles starring Ji Hye, we round up several of her memorable works in both television and the silver screen.
