Jeon Hye-jin married Lee Sun-kyun in May 2009 after seven years of dating. Lee Sun-kyun had been a fan of Jeon Hye-jin, who was called “Daehak-ro’s Jeon Ji-hyun”, ever since their college days. While playing supporting roles, Lee Sun-kyun was able to get Jeon Hye-jin’s contact by chance and he decided to gather the courage to approach her. The two later developed into lovers and then got married.

Before their marriage, Jeon Hye-jin mainly played supporting roles in dramas and movies and performed on theater stages. After marrying Lee Sun-kyun, she became less active and has only returned to the screen in the past few years. Her representative works as “The Terror Live” (2013), “The Throne” (2015), “The Merciless” (2017), “Misty” (2018), “Ashfall” (2019), “Search: WWW” (2019), “Stranger” (2020), “Hunt” (2022) and “Not Others” (2023). Especially in “Search: WWW” and “Ashfall” Jeon Hye-jin’s outstanding acting left great impressions on viewers. Recently, she starred in “Not Others” and continued to receive favorable responses for her role as an immature mother with a daughter.

Jeon Hye-jin won Best Supporting Actress at various awards ceremonies, such as the Blue Dragon Film Awards, Korea Film Producers Association Awards, Korean Association of Film Critics Awards, etc. In 2021, she was selected for “Korean Actors 200”, a global promotional campaign that introduces 200 actors representing the present and future of the Korean film industry. In May this year, she also accompanied her husband Lee Sun-kyun to the Cannes Film Festival with their two sons.

While enjoying her career peak, Jeon Hye-jin faced a backlash because of her husband’s drug scandal. A telecommunication company modeled by the two immediately removed their advertisements. Earlier on October 24th, the police booked Lee Sun-kyun on charges of violating the Narcotics Contol Actor, such as administering psychotropic drugs.

When Lee Sun-kyun reached his heyday and became a top actor after marriage, Jeon Hye-jin was focusing on taking care of their family. Thanks to Jeon Hye-jin, Lee Sun-kyun could rise to his current position. However, as she was about to be active again, the actress faced a crisis caused by her husband, drawing great regrets from the public.
