Kim Ji Won and Her Leading Men in K-Dramas

Here are the Korean actors paired with the "Queen of Tears" star


Kim Ji-won has soared to new heights of superstardom, owing to Queen of Tears’ record-breaking success. In the series, she stars as Hong Hae In, a chaebol heiress who faces a marriage crisis with her lawyer husband Baek Hyun woo (Kim Soo Hyun). Here and there, the on-screen chemistry of the two main leads was the talk of the town through the show’s run.



While Queen of Tears is the latest jewel in her crown, Ji Won’s dossier is adorned with several standout performances that highlight her range as an actress. Early on her foray into the world of entertainment, she landed her first breakout role in The Heirs (2013) as Rachel Yoo, the haughty fiancée of Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho). In 2016, the South Korean actress rose to fame with the smash-hit drama Descendants of the Sun (2016) before taking her first lead role in the romantic comedy Fight for My Way (2017). One of the things that undeniably make Ji Won a standout actress is the alchemy of chemistry she weaves with her male co-stars.


In the gallery below, we look back on Kim Ji Won’s career through her K-drama leading men:



The Queen of Tears actress has sent fans gushing anew as her agency, HighZium Studios, announced her first-ever Asia fan meeting tour, "BE MY ONE," early this year. In Manila, Philippines, Kim Ji-won is set to hold the fanmeeting on August 3, Saturday, at the New Frontier Theater. The event is organized by PULP Live World.
