She has an unusual nickname.

“Cow” is not a nickname that anyone would find flattering, but in one of her interviews, Ye Jin explained why it was okay with her. “At one point, because I was doing film after film non-stop, people started calling me ‘So’ (which means ‘cow’ in Korean) Ye Jin. It’s not a pretty nickname, but I took it to mean I worked hard and tirelessly. I’m happy with that nickname—it means a lot.”

She takes her craft very seriously.

Many fans loved her chemistry with Hyun Been in Crash Landing On You, but this can be attributed not to an off-screen romance, but a high level of professionalism between the actors. “You have to understand the other person’s acting patterns,” she tells Sparkling. “You also have to understand what they’re aiming for. You have to be really quick to catch what they’re trying to do and you have to build on that rapport.”


She takes breaks too, and loves having coffee during me-time.

In an interview with The Swoon, she shares that she enjoys quiet time with a cup of coffee on her couch, “staring blankly ahead without thinking of anything.”

She’s an endorser for a Filipino telecom company.

She’s currently the newest Smart Communications ambassadress, joining her CLOY leading man Hyun Bin. “As an actress, I am always grateful for having a platform to entertain and touch the lives of others through my craft,” she says, thanking the company for the opportunity to reach out to her Pinoy fans. “I wish to see you all soon.”
