Rachel Jun, also known as Jeon Jong-seo, is a rising South Korean model and actress who quickly went from a film fanatic to a film star. She has gone through plastic surgery but only in her film.
Jeon quickly rose to prominence after her first-ever audition led to the role of Hae-mi in Lee Chang-dong’s thriller Burning in 2018. She starred opposite Yoo Ah In and Steven Yeun.
Moreover, the actress won Best Actress at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards for her performance in The Call.
This year, Jeo’s popularity reached sky-high after she played Tokyo in the Korean adaptation of Money Heist. In this spinoff, Jeon starred alongside Park Hae-soo (as Berline), Yoo Ji-Tae (as The Professor), Kim Ji-hoon (as Denver), Yoon-Ju Jang (as Nairobi), and Hyun-Woo Lee (as Rio).
Jeon Jong-seo Plastic Surgery: She Had One In A Movie
Actress Jeon Jong-seo has never had plastic surgery in real life. Instead, her character had one in the 2018 movie Burning.
In the scene, Jongsu (Yoo Ah-In), an aspiring writer dressed in his usual shabby T-shirt and hoodie, does not recognize his old classmate from his village Haemi (Jeon Jong-seo). It is because, as Jongsu proudly proclaims, she has had plastic surgery.
The 28-year-old actress is most likely happy with the way she looks. The 5 feet 5 inches tall lady has brown eyes, black hair, and fair & clean skin. She perhaps does not want to change anything about it.
Besides acting, Jeon does modeling and has experience working with brands like Vogue. She could not have done it without her natural beauty.
