Kim Tae-hee (김태희)

In a land where plastic beauties are everywhere, Kim Tae-hee is one of the rare gems. The natural beauty started out as a model before venturing into acting in 1998.

The public only started to take notice of her in 2002 when she appeared in the TV sitcom, Let's Go. However, she became a star the following year after playing the nasty stepsister in drama Stairway to Heaven, which starred Kwon Sang-woo and Choi Ji-woo.

Her popularity increased when she starred opposite Kim Rae-won in the drama Love Story in Harvard (2004).

The 27-year-old then made her movie debut in 2006 with The Restless, which unfortunately flopped. The latest news on her is that she's working on a TV drama entitled Angel.

She's one of my least favourite Korean actress. The first time I saw her was in Stairway to Heaven when she played the part of the bit*hy sister. I guess that role didn't give me a very good first impression of her, and till now it's not improving.

Heya ni-choon :-)

Wow, she must be some actress! You even dislike her in other shows!!??

I have yet to watch Stairway to Heaven :-( Don't have the time to watch the series which is currently playing on Astro. Bummer.

I caught glimpses of her in Love Story in Harvard and her trying to speak English is painful to my ears and that also didn't impress me much... Oh no... her fans are going attack me with hate messages... haha...

Liz said...

Don't worry ni-choon, we practice freedom of speech here - as long as there are no extremely nasty cuss words and calling people nasty names.

I'll protect you :-P

Yeah. she needs to work on her acting, but is pretty cute.

Liz said...

I'm watching her performance in Stairway to Heaven and yeah, she's such a bitch in the show.

But then again, she's going DOWN right? Don't tell me, I'm only half-way through, but a person with such a deceitful heart should die a most horrible death.

Off with her head!!!

Liz said...

Kim Tae-hee isn't such a good actress, is she?

How come she has only, like, one type of expression in Stairway to Heaven? The wide-eyed, furious look.

Stranger in Love said...

I hope she can see my feelings.

Although I am an Indian but previously I only liked Chinese dramas but after Love story in Harvard and her acting, I think Korean dramas are the most romantic dramas in the world. Indian dramas are nothing. NO offense.

It is true feeling. She is so pure like angle. She’s really really gorgeous. She is really angle. Love story in Harvard is the most romantic & touching drama I have ever seen. When I saw her first time in Love story in Harvard, I fall in love but the main tragedy is I am married now. If I have seen Love story in Harvard in 2003 then definitely I would have found her or Korean girl like her and would have married her. Her acting is so real. I always think of her.

Now I see Love story in Harvard trailer every day because of her.

Good luck to her that she will find her better half. Poor me.

She's okay, but not as pretty as Lee Da Hae & Choi Ji Woo who are also good actresses. LDH & CJW are both very tall women. Love them both.

me said...

she's one of the prettiest. a lot prettier than lee da hae. but yeah, she can't act so well. but still, she is one of the genius actress. she is famous with her brain. maybe acting wasn't her thing, but something more intellectual for her.
