Ryu Won (born Joo Won on November 8, 1997)[1] is a South Korean actress. She is best known for her role in the MBC's series Missing 9.

Early life[edit]

Ryu Won was born Joo Won in Haeundae, Busan. Ryu changed her name to Ryu Won, based on her mother's surname. She changed her name because there is another actor with the same name, Joo Won.[2] Ryu lived in Busan till she was in third grade of elementary school, then immigrated with her family to the United States.[3]

The actress stated that she was originally interested in fashion design or art instead of acting. After entering a beauty contest in Los Angeles when she was 17 years old, she got an offer from JYP Entertainment to be a trainee there. The actress then moved to South Korea and started studying acting after graduating from high school at the age of 18.[2]
