South Korean actress Kim Hye-soo, 48, continues to amaze fans – and inspire jokes – with her ageless beauty.
Kim, who made her debut in 1986, has continued to be in the spotlight in recent years, especially at the nation’s annual Blue Dragon Film Awards.
Last Friday, she hosted the 39th film awards in Seoul, alongside 34-year-old actor Yoo Yeon-seok.
It was the 25th year in a row that Kim had hosted the annual awards ceremony.
During the ceremony, veteran actor Park Joong-hoon, 52, recalled that he and Kim had started their acting careers together in the same feature film, the 1986 drama, Ggambo.
Park, who was on stage to hand out the best director award, raised laughter among the audience at the Kyung Hee University Grand Peace Palace, when he joked: “Kim Hye-soo was two years old back then.”
Kim gave a big laugh, too and replied: “Exactly.”
Kim will return to the big screen on Wednesday with the cinema release of the film drama Default, about a financial crisis in South Korea, which features French actor Vincent Cassel in a supporting role.
