Min-jeung plays the role of Yang Joo-ran in the South Korean Television Series Marry My Husband. Yang Joo-ran works with Ji-won and is the assistant manager of Marketing Team 1 at U&K Food. Kang Ji Won was able to get back her boss’s stolen project plan. Yoo Ji Hyuk (Na In Woo) was there and ready to help her if she had just asked, but Kang Ji Won solved the problem on her own and made things better.
The new stills show Kang Ji Won, Yoo Ji Hyuk, and the U&K Food Marketing Team 1 in a class together, in the middle of all this. Kang Ji Won smiles big at her coworkers.

Min-jeung plays the role of Na Ye-jin in the South Korean television series One Dollar Lawyer. Mari’s boss is PROSECUTOR NA YE-JIN. When Ji-hoon shows up out of the blue, she talks to him casually, and he calls her “sundae.” There is clear respect between them. We’re interested in why Ji-hoon quit the prosecution, but that’s probably the most interesting (and risky?) thing we don’t learn about him in this first show.
We notice the nature of his character by what he says and does, but we know nothing about him, and more often than not he’s hiding behind a pair of slick shades (and looking damn good, I must say). It’s possible that his past will become clearer as the story goes on, and it will be fun to see it happen.
