Kim Hye Yoon opened up about her struggles while acting due to her low self-esteem.

Unlike other South Korean actresses, Kim Hye Yoon waited for years before finally landing her first leading role. She debuted in 2013, but she first scored a leading role in 2019 in MBC’s Extraordinary You.


Despite that, she already got eight nominations so far and won seven of which. As of the writing, she already has several accolades under her belt, including awards from Asia Artists Awards, Asia Model Awards, Baeksang Arts Awards, and Korean Culture Entertainment Awards, among others.

Recently, she spoke candidly about how acting still feels like a struggle to her due to her low self-esteem.
