Chrystal Soo Jung (born October 24, 1994),[1] better known as Krystal Jung, Krystal, or by her Korean name Jung Soo Jung, is a Korean American idol singer and actress. Discovered by S.M. Entertainment in 2000, she began filming for commercials and music videos by 2002. She is a member of both the South Korean girl group f(x) and the ballad group S.M. The Ballad, and has participated in various television dramas such as High Kick 3, The Heirs, and My Lovely Girl.

Early life[edit]

Krystal was born as Chrystal Soo Jung in San Francisco, California,[1] where her family from South Korea settled in the 1980s. During a family trip to South Korea in early 2000, at the age of five, she and her older sister Jessica were spotted by talent agency S.M. Entertainment, which earned her a cameo appearance in Shinhwa's "Wedding March" music video. The agency saw potential in both Krystal and her sister and offered them singing and dancing lessons, opting to professionally train them in a singing career. However, the offer was turned down by her parents, reasoning that Krystal was too young. Therefore, her parents at first only allowed her older sister to join the agency, who debuted as a member of the girl group Girls' Generation. Since then, the Jung sisters have appeared together in many events.[3][4]

In 2002, Krystal began appearing in television commercials. She first appeared in a Lotte commercial with Korean actress Han Ga In.[5]

In 2006, her parents finally allowed her to join S.M. Entertainment, and the agency then enrolled her in dance classes, including jazz and ballet. Krystal was trained for 3 years before debuting as a part of f(x) in 2009.[6]

Education[edit]

After moving to South Korea, Krystal attended Korea Kent Foreign School, then graduated from Hanlim Performing Arts High School on February 7, 2013, where she was honored with an achievement award.[7] She is currently attending Sungkyunkwan University, majoring in performing arts.[8] She is fluent in both English and Korean.

Personality and public image[edit]

Krystal stated: "I don't really like crowded places. When people stare at me, I feel so uncomfortable. My job is being a celebrity, so I'm supposed to enjoy and get used to people staring at me. I can't seem to do that."[9][10] Her sister, Jessica, further remarked: "When she was little, people would stare at her because she's pretty, and she'd always hide and cry."[11] Because of this reason, during her Amazing f(x) trip to New Zealand, Krystal chose to do skydiving as a mean of unleashing her freedom and fear of attention, telling the viewers, "Skydiving means I'll jump out from the sky and forget everything else".[9][10]

Earlier in her career, Krystal was being criticized by the public as having an attitude problem.[12][13][14] As a result of this, Krystal even had to apologize publicly on one occasion.[15] Subsequently Krystal stated: "When people see my expression they usually say that I look cold or even ask if I'm mad. I was just standing there, so I realized for the first time that I appear that way after hearing those kinds of comments. But the people around me know that I'm not like that. Truthfully, I'm more affectionate and fragile-hearted than people think."[16][17]

In the same interview, she also revealed her introverted personality. She confessed that she cannot quickly become friendly with people whom she meets for the first time. Therefore, she is thankful towards people who approach her first.[16][17]

2010: Debut & Melody Project[edit]

Krystal debuted as an actress in the long-running sitcom More Charming by the Day,[44] making her first appearance in episode 60.[45] She played a minor character named Jung Soo Jung, a quirky girl who lies a lot in front of everyone. During a later episode, her character had a chance to sing a cover of "It's First Love".[46] Subsequently, Krystal received the "Newcomer Comedy Award" at the 2004 MBC Entertainment Award for this role.[47]

During the same year, Krystal also participated in the Melody Project, a series of music videos, in which she played a young student who is in love with her music teacher. There are six parts to the series; four parts have been released so far. Each music video is supposed to depict a distinctive emotion associated with love.[18][19][20][21][22] The director, Oh Joon Jung, commented on Krystal "Despite her young age, she's professionally expressed the complex emotions the character has in the story."[48]

2011 - 2013: High Kick 3: Revenge of the Short-legged & The Heirs[edit]

In 2011, Krystal appeared in High Kick 3, playing the role of Ahn Soo Jung, a superficial and shallow girl, who does not have much depth of feelings. She and her onscreen brother, Ahn Jong Suk, also often act violently towards one another.[49] Because of this, Krystal had to explain that in real life she is not like the character she portrays.[50] On the other hand, Ahn Nae Sang, playing Krystal's father in the show, expressed that he "was shocked at Krystal's natural acting" and believed that she will succeed later. To this, however, Krystal acknowledged that she still has a long way to go before becoming a real actress.[50][51]

In 2013, Krystal was cast in The Heirs, portraying the role of Lee Bo Na, a wealthy high school student, who appears to be somewhat spoiled, yet is still cute and has a good heart. Her character in the show has generated positive recognition among the viewers. For instance, CNBLUE's Jonghyun confessed to become a fan of Krystal after having watched her, stating that her character "came out really pretty and charming".[52] Lee Bo Na and Yoon Chan Young were also voted as the Best Onscreen Couple at the 2013 DramaFever Awards.[53] Throughout the course of filming, Krystal was well-liked among her co-stars and staff members.[54][55] The producer, during his interview featured in the DVD edition of the drama, also praised Krystal for her natural acting.[56]

2014 - present: Potato Star 2013QR3 & My Lovely Girl[edit]

In March, due to a request from Director Kim Byung Wook, whom Krystal has previously worked with in High Kick 3, she made a cameo appearance in Potato Star 2013QR3.[57] Though her appearance was brief, Go Kyung-pyo, playing her crush in the sitcom, stated that he became a fan of Krystal, noting on her being a bright and caring friend, and that her participation in the show was a joyful memory to remember.[58]

Krystal starred in her first leading role in the SBS's drama My Lovely Girl, alongside with Rain and L (Kim Myungsoo). She portrayed a character named Se Na, who moves from the countryside to Seoul to pursue a music career and ends up meeting a fateful love during the process. Commenting on Krystal's work attitude, Director Park Hyung Ki stated "Despite taking on a difficult character, she shows her determination to pull it off through her gaze to the point you can see sincerity in Krystal when she’s in front of the camera."[59][60] The drama started airing on September 17, 2014.[61][62]

Variety show appearances[edit]

2010: Dream Team 2 & The M-Wave[edit]

Krystal appeared on Let's Go Dream Team 2, where she broke a high jump record that had been set on the show 10 years ago with a height of 1.95 meters.[63]

She was also a host of The M-Wave with fellow artist Thunder from MBLAQ.[64][65]

2011: SBS's Kiss & Cry[edit]

As a participant in the figure-skating show Kiss & Cry, Krystal demonstrated a total of 8 performances stretching throughout a 14-week broadcast. Having practiced figure-skating only shortly before the show started;[66] and even though there were also some mishaps,[67][68] she impressed the judges and viewers through many difficult lifts and movements. People on one occasion commented that Krystal executed all her elements cleanly and finished strong.[69] Kim Yuna, on the other hand, remarked that although she thought one performance lacked some colors; "...the skills demonstrated were enough for me to believe if someone said Krystal was an ice dancer."[70] David Wilson also commented on the chemistry between Krystal and her partner, Lee Dong Hoon. He poked fun at the two, asking "Just makes me wonder... is there something going on between the two of you?" Krystal and her partner were then announced as the winners of the competition, earning them the opportunity to skate at the Kim Yuna's "Samsung Galaxy★Hauzen All That Skate Summer 2011" ice show.[71] Krystal later revealed about an incident where she could have almost killed her partner. While practicing for a lift, the blade of her skate came across his neck and could have cut through his skin if he had not avoided it right in time.[72][73]

2014: OnStyle's Jessica & Krystal[edit]

Jessica & Krystal, featuring Krystal and her sister, Jessica Jung, premiered on June 3 and consisted of 10 episodes. The show took on a more close-up and personal side of the two sisters, showing their affection towards one another,[74] featuring their daily life activities, as well as never-before-seen footages.[75]

During one interview segment, the two sisters addressed their public "cold" image together. Jessica explained "The average person thinks of idols' bright images, but my sister and I tend to not have strong expressions. If I'm not so lively, other people could misunderstand. I wish they wouldn't think me as rough." and Krystal added "I don't particularly want to explain. This is us, so what could we do?"[76] They also expressed their sisterly bond, saying "If we didn't work in the same business, we wouldn't be this close...we understand each other more than anyone else. If we didn't have each other, it would have been difficult."[77]

Relationship with bandmates[edit]

When describing the friendship between Krystal and her bandmate Sulli, Amber stated: "Krystal and Sulli are like Tom and Jerry. They are always bickering, but you know they secretly love each other".[78] Sulli added: "The people who don't know might think we are fighting...that's just how we express our love."[79]
