Kim Yoo-jung : A Ball of Fluff That Should be Loved and Protected at All Cost
Like most people, I know of Kim Yoo Jung after I watched a Korean drama called Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. For those of you who has no idea what that show is about, your girl got your back. I will shortly and sweetly summarize it so everyone is caught up to speed. Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is essentially about a man named Hong Sam Nom who was actually a woman in disguise. The character was played by Kim Yoo Jung, in which he who would counsel man on their love life and relationships.
One day, due to a series of events, Kim Yoo Jung eventually became an eunuch in the palace and was assigned to be one of the Crown Prince’s eunuch. This was when things start to get complicated. Because as stealthy and successful as Hong Sam Nom in pretending that she was a man to the public eye, she could not hide it past the intelligent Crown Prince who has a special eye for details. And as time goes on, the Crown Prince stared to wonder, was this eunuch of his really a man after all? Or was he hiding something behind his ridiculously cute acts?
You know, I am actually really grateful for Korean Dramas. Can you just imagine how many amazing Korean actors and actresses that I would have missed out if not for KDramas? Not to mention, I would have never know that a woman as breathtaking and amazing as Kim Yoo-jung existed had it not been for Korean dramas.
This woman, I’m telling you. She is literally one of the cutest and most genuine cinnamon roll that I have ever set my eyes on. I have never seen someone so freaking adorable yet beautiful at the same time. When I first saw her in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, I was shocked by how good looking she was.
Just by looking at her picture, can you try and guess how old she is? Just give it a blind guess. How old do you think she is?
This cinnamon roll is only 19 years old. Literally only a year younger than me, but she has already gone and achieved so many incredible things in life. Seeing this honestly make me question my life decisions everyday. There she goes being such an unbelievably talented human being, yet here I am just sitting on my ass every day, eat chips and playing sims. *laughs*
