Lee Yoo-mi (Korean이유미; born July 18, 1994) is a South Korean actress. She is known for her roles as Ji-yeong in Squid Game (2021) and Lee Na-yeon in All of Us Are Dead (2022). For the former, she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series and made her the first Korean actress to win in the category.

Early life[edit]

Lee was born on July 18, 1994, in Jeonju, South Korea.[1]

Career[edit]

She began her acting career in 2010 with her debut in the action thriller film The Yellow Sea. In the following years, her work was limited to minor roles in several film and television series.[1]

On September 28, 2020, it was announced that Lee has signed an exclusive contract with Varo Entertainment.[2]

In 2021, Lee rose to prominence outside South Korea for her role of Ji-yeong (Number 240) in the Netflix series Squid Game. Following the series' international success, Lee's follower count on Instagram increased from 40,000 to over 6.5 million in a matter of days.[3] Her performance made her the first Korean actress to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.[4]

In 2022, Lee Yoo-mi starred as Lee Na-yeon in the Netflix zombie-themed series All of Us Are Dead. Her realistic acting as the villainous, selfish and arrogant rich student (which contrasted with the sympathetic and selfless Ji-yeong from Squid Game) further propelled her to fame, in combination with her earlier popularity from Squid Game.[5][6]

Philanthropy[edit]

On July 20, 2022, Lee donated cosmetic products worth ₩3 million to a public foundation for burn patients.[7]
