Let’s get to know our girl crush, Kim TaeRi!
Kim TaeRi is famous as a Hallyu actress who never ceases to amaze her audience. She portrays each of her characters with such attention to detail that it is inevitable for people to fall for her charm as an actress.
She is well-known for carefully selecting all of her projects herself and taking on roles that are different in order to grow her skills as an actress. It is inspiring that she is willing to challenge herself each time.
Some of the popular films she has starred in include “The Handmaiden“, “Little Forest“, and “Space Sweepers“, just to name a few.
Her wide range of genres and characters only proves her incredible ability to digest any genre asked of her. She is known as an extremely hard-working professional who immerses herself in any task, giving it her all.
Many may not know that she was actually a model and theatre actress before debuting as a film and later drama actress.
For one of her theatre productions, she played a visually impaired character. To better understand this character she volunteered at community centers for the visually impaired and read to them.
As she grew fond of reading to them, she wanted to do it more. So, during the quarantine period of the pandemic, she started producing audiobooks of herself reading classic literature. It just shows how wholesome and warmhearted she is.
Despite her huge success, one of the most endearing things about her is how humble she is. She is super down-to-earth and always shows an authentic side to her fans. As a result, she is one of the most relatable actresses out there.
