Afterwards, the public’s interest was piqued regarding the identity of Baek Jin-kyung, whom Kim Go-eun mentioned directly. Some speculated that she might be a friend who had passed away, but this was not true. Baek Jin-kyung is the makeup artist for Kim Go-eun, when she played Hong Seol in tvN’s ‘Cheese in the Trap’.

In a 2016 interview, Baek Jin-kyung revealed that she used tint to highlight the lips, creating a bright and lovely makeup look for Hong Seol. This approach made Hong Seol’s style appear more natural and simple, enhancing Kim Go-eun’s visuals.
