There's something about Ko Hyun Jung. One of the top actresses of the 90s, she is best remembered for her performance in the phenomenally popular Sandglass
. Much to the dismay of fans, however, she left the industry after Sandglass
. In 2005, ten years after Sandglass
, Ko Hyun Jung returned to acting with SBS drama Spring Days
, looking as beautiful as ever. This year, she continues to win over old and new fans alike, appearing in Hong Sang Soo's latest film Woman on the Beach
and the hilarious romantic comedy Foxy Lady
which pulled in high TV ratings despite airing in a very competitive slot.
In the tradition of series like My Lovely Sam-Soon and Snow White, new drama Foxy Lady presents a lighthearted, yet touching "older sister/younger brother" relationship, only in a more realistic context. Ko Hyun Jung and Chun Jeong Myung (Goodbye Solo and Fashion 70s) show great on-screen chemistry, and the fabulous supporting cast, including newcomer Kim Eun Joo, drama regular Kwon Hae Hyo, and veteran Yoon Jeo Yung, bring both comedy and gravity to the story. Chaotic, colorful, and laugh-out-loud funny, Foxy Lady shows that love is possible at any age.
Single 33-year-old columnist Go Byung Hee (Ko Hyun Jung) works for a racy men's magazine. As her alter ego "Miss Go", she writes candidly about sexual liaisons; in real life, she is woefully inexperienced in matters of sex and love, and still awkwardly waiting for the perfect guy. Then one drunken night, she ends up sleeping with her best friend's little brother, 24-year-old Park Chul Soo (Chun Jeong Myung). The two agree to pretend the night never happened, but seem to keep growing closer over time. Soon Byung Hee meets a handsome doctor, and just as things seem to be falling into fairy tale place, Chul Soo declares his love to her.
