Jung Ryeo Won Displays Her Fighting Spirit in ‘History of Salaryman’
Jung Ryeo Won is currently being well-received for her perfect transformation into a reckless and thoughtless heir to a wealthy family, Baek Yeo Chi - a character who′s totally different from Jung′s previous roles - in the SBS drama, History of Salaryman.
But she′s been dealt a triple whammy, the cold weather, her rough hair, and a stye in the eye, almost as if she′s being forced to pay for her growing popularity.
Jung tweeted on January 29, “An unwelcomed guest, a stye, which came down on me unexpectedly, is bothering me more and more. I did all I can do - taking anti-inflammatory medicine, antibiotics and eye drops, but the stye is only getting bigger and bigger. I can’t go see an eye doctor due to the shooting schedule. Do you by any chance know any homeopathic remedies?”
The tweet was accompanied with a photo showing her swollen eye (does anyone else think she looks like 2NE1′s Park Bom in the photo?) and netizens who saw her tweet continued to post messages to cheer her up.
A rep from the actress’s agency said, “Jung Ryeo Won has been acting happily, as if she was in clothing perfectly tailored to her, for the good drama and her unique character since returning to the small screen for the first time in a long time. Even though the weather is so cold and her hair got damaged from dyeing it red, she′s been working hard, unaware of how tired she is, as her fashion and acting has become a hot topic."
Meanwhile, she recently has been chosen as a model for Italian luxury brand BORBONESE, living up to her role as an heir to a wealthy family.
An official behind the brand said, “Jung Ryeo Won’s sophisticated and refined yet characteristic image is expected to fit for the image of our brand, which is set to embark on a new century of history in Asia.”
The rep from Jung’s agency said, “Thanks to her natural sense of fashion style and her current role as an heir to the rich family, she’s been on the receiving end of a slew of sponsorship offers from luxury clothing brands. Please continue to keep an eye on ‘Yeo Chi’s yuppie look’.”
