Park Ye-jin (born April 1, 1981) is a South Korean actress.


Park Ye-jin made her acting debut in the 1999 horror film Memento Mori, then appeared in leading and supporting roles in several TV series and films, notably What Happened in Bali and Again, My Love (also known as Hateful But Once Again).[1] But her popularity increased when she became a regular cast member on the first season of variety show Family Outing, in which she showed a different image and earned the nickname "sweet, yet scary, Ye-jin." In 2009, Park left the show because of her hectic schedule filming the period drama Queen Seondeok and the movie Fortune Salon.[2]

After she was cast as Genghis Khan's wife Khulan in the Korea-China-Japan 3D martial arts pic An End to Killing,[3] Park starred in the fantasy romance I Love Lee Tae-ri.[4][5][6]
