Jeon, who is well known for her love of fitness and exercise, released a beauty book titled Heaven's Stylish Body in 2011, which included her fitness and fashion tips. She followed up with the launch of an iPad diet app in 2012. On January 23, 2012, Jeon appeared in the 2012 Korean New Year Special of SBS' survival show Law of the Jungle W. She joined the show again in September, this time for the Madagascar episodes.
After a year-long hiatus from television, Jeon was cast in the KBS2 office drama Queen of the Office.

On the 100th episode of Law of the Jungle: Borneo, she appeared as a guest.
In 2015, Jeon was cast in the sports film The Legend of a Mermaid, playing a former national synchronized swimmer.
Jeon received renewed recognition as an actress with her role as "Gold Hae-young" in the romantic comedy series Another Oh Hae-young (2016). She next starred in the romance film With or Without You, playing a divorcee. The same year, Jeon featured in MBC's legal drama Woman with a Suitcase.
