Moon Geun Young

Updated on September 15, 2014

Talented Young Actress, Moon Geun Young

Moon Geun Young is the damsel in distress in the popular South Korean drama, Marry Me, Mary! where she was paired with one of the most talented actors of today -- Jang Geun Suk.

In year 2000, I can remember Moon Geun Young played the role of young Eun-Seo Yun/Choi in the Korean drama, Autumn Fairy Tale ~ a drama that was a big success all across Asia. I have also seen her in the horror flick, A Tale of Two Sisters.

At such an early age, she had already won a prestigious award ~ Best Young Actress Award ~ for her role in Autumn In my Heart (aka Autumn Fairy Tale)

She was tagged as "Gukmin yeo-dong-saeng" which means "the nation's younger sister for her cute and younger sister-like image.

Prior to her drama, Marry Me, Mary (aka Mary Stayed Out All Night) she also portrayed one of the lead roles in the drama, Cinderella Sister

PoLL: You Do... You DONT. . .

Can love exist between two people when the world around them says it's wrong?

 
A Tale of Two Sisters (Two-Disc Edition)
A Tale of Two Sisters (Two-Disc Edition)

Two young sisters recovering from an unnamed trauma must face a mysterious past in this excellent South Korean shocker. A worldwide hit upon its release and based on an old Korean fairy tale; two sisters (wonderfully played by Su-jeong Lim and Geun-yeong Mun) come to live with their cold and distant father and turn-on-a-dime stepmother in a house where nothing is as it seems. A wonderfully haunting score, starkly beautiful imagery, and a labyrinthine plot that twists and turns at every dark corner all set the stage for a riveting and often terrifying guessing game of a movie. Equal parts drama, mystery, and ghost story, A Tale of Two Sisters is a richly complex and challenging cinematic treat that may very well demand repeat viewings. --Matt Wold

      She is the most generous actress I've ever seen, donating most or all of her earning from dramas and movies to charity and education, she is so humble and genuine that she has been an anonymous donor for many, many years until in 2007 a group of charity foundation has reveal some of her charity works until 2007, which shows that she has been donating millions of dollars over the last ten years making her the biggest individual/non corporate donor in Korean for years without the public knowing. Unfortunately her charity after 2007 are remains a secret as she would have wished, which I'm very sure she has done many, many more since then.She is also an amazing actress, the youngest actress that won the korean daesang (grand award/the biggest award for entertainer in Korea) in the history.She has the looks and hearts of an angel.

      she`s beautiful, and a good actress, the first time i saw her in MSOAN, i thought she was still a minor. she looked so young of her age and i like the way she played her role that i started to look all what film or drama she had already made and watched it. I hope she will have more dramas or film coming soon.. at last wish her more power and good health.....
