No longer a famous beauty like before, but now Chae Rim has a peaceful and warm life with her son.
In the late 1990s – early 2000s, the Hallyu wave “landed” strongly in Vietnam. During this period, many Korean romantic dramas became indispensable “spiritual food” on television. Many viewers are passionate fans of kimchi beauties like Chae Rim, Kim Hee Sun or Jang Nara.
Indeed, more than 2 decades ago, Chae Rim was a “popular” name. The movie Pure Love that she starred in has created a “craze” in many Asian countries, including Vietnam.
Take on the role of Sun Mi, a beautiful, intelligent and kind girl, favored by God for a good and rich father, a boyfriend who loves her dearly (played by Jang Dong Gun), a beautiful woman. 7X has won the hearts of the audience. Even her character has become a “model” that many girls aspire to.
Chae Rim’s clear beauty and sweet combination between her and actor Jang Dong Gun in the movie “Pure Love” once created an “exploding” fever throughout Asia.
However, in contrast to Sun Mi in the movie, Chae Rim’s real life is not very flat. Therefore, she now chooses to live in “forgetfulness” to have peaceful days with her son.
“Youth goddess” was once loved
Chae Rim was born in 1979 into a middle-class family in Korea. She soon showed an artistic talent, especially with music, so her parents sent her to study piano and dance from a young age. These two arts have greatly supported the actress on her later career path.
Right from the time she was in school, Chae Rim was an outstanding girl. Thanks to her clear, sweet appearance and bright smile like the morning sun, when she turned 15, she “caught the eye” of the film director Warm river and received a supporting role. From here, the actress got closer to the audience and smoothly entered the entertainment industry.
However, it was not until 2000, when she transformed into a lovely and kind broadcaster Sun Mi in Pure Love, that Chae Rim really “breakthrough” and became a bright star on television.
Chae Rim’s memorable beauty in her youth
At the peak of her career, Chae Rim was a goddess in the hearts of millions of Asian men and a symbol of beauty that women aspire to. After the success of Pure Love, she continued to “storm” across Asian screens with a series of feverish works such as Four Sisters, Youth, Dal Ja’s Spring…
The reputation of 7X beauties not only flourished in Korea, but also spread to many Asian countries such as Taiwan, China and Vietnam. The beauty became a “magnet” to attract guests of hit movies on the Chinese screen such as Stubborn Princess, Duong Mon Tiger General, Love in the Sea of Love, Tuy Da Kim Chi…
However, Chae Rim’s heyday lasted only about 10 years before it began to decline. When she was over 30, she no longer received popular projects, the beauty of the goddess once gradually faded over the years and plastic surgery held her youth.
In addition, the turbulence in the love story made Chae Rim shrink. Just like that, she lost her past glory and fell into oblivion.
