Actress Yunjin Kim is known to American audiences for her role as Sun on the television series 'Lost' but she is currently impressing television and movie insiders and filmmakers s as one of the co-stars on the hit television show "Mistressess". On the show she plays the role of Karen Kim who had an affair which resulted in a traumatic experience with the family of the man whom she had the affair.
Her role in the television series is a 'meaty' one in which she shows her extensive dramatic range.
She displays a fantastic ability to show the flaws of her character, a psychologist who provides counsel and guidance to her clients but makes very questionable decisions in her own life. Yunjin Kim shows anger, hurt, guilt and strength through her portrayal of Karen Kim and shows a character who is able to connect with viewers despite the fact that the majority of her character's problems seem to be self-inflicted wounds caused by her being the 'other' woman.
Her portrayal of this character has caught the attention of entertainment insiders and filmmakers within Hollywood who have started to envision her as a femme fatale on the big screen or as the romantic interest in a movie project.
The growing popularity of Yunjin Kim has been noticed not just by entertainment insiders and filmmakers but also by late night television hosts such as Queen Latifah and Craig Ferguson who have both brought her to their shows to talk about her character and her future projects.
Yunjin Kim is a star in South Korea and a recognized face in North America but it seems as if her recent outstanding performances on "Mistresses" might just soon make her a leading lady in a Hollywood movie project in the near future.
