Profile Name Lee Young-Ae Hangul: 이영애 Birthdate: January 31, 1971 Birthplace: Oksu-dong, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, South Korea University: Hanyang University, Graduate School of Chung-Ang University Major Movie Theatre Height: 165cm Blood Type: AB Bio One of Korea’s sweetest actresses, Lee Young-Ae, casts aside her popular image to play the enigmatic Lee Geum-ja, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance’s angel of vengeance Lee Young-Ae’s first substantial role came in 2000, when she co-starred in Park Chanwook’s JSA: Joint Security Area. The serene young actress brought just the right amount of selfconfidence to her role as a Swedish army major (of Korean descent) investigating an armistice threatening scandal on the border between North and South Korea. But Lee achieved fame throughout all of Asia later, first when she starred in Hur Jin-ho’s One Fine Spring Day as an attractive but selfish divorcee, in a showcase for her special charms and quietly nuanced acting. In 2003, she starred as the cheerful and strong character Jang-geum in the hit TV drama ‘The Jewel in the Palace’, which drew the highest audience ratings for that year for Korean television and went on to become an international success. Lee starred as a simple, if self-possessed young countrywoman who becomes a cook to the imperial household during the Chosun dynasty. Cast out of the palace thanks to the machinations of a ruthless rival, she later returns as the first woman to become the royal family’s physician. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is thus both a challenge to Lee’s talents and to her fans’ preconceptions of her. Based on the film’s overwhelming critical and audience responses, the challenge was well met.
