Emergency Couple (2014) Review by @Musings of a Chunkeemonkeeato
Introducing “Choi Yeo-Jin” or " 최여진"
Choi Yeo-Jin is an actress born on the 27th of July, 1983. I think I first saw her "Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy" (2005) but I do not really remember much about that show. I think the earliest impression of her on myself was as a model. While having a great figure, Choi Yeo-Jin does not have a typical Korean drama actress' look. In "Surgeon Bong Dal-hee" (2007), her character is given a nickname of "Olive" from the Popeye comic strip because of her unique look.

For such a unique looking actress who goes against the Korean drama actress mold, Choi Yeo-Jin has been working for exactly a decade in Korean dramas and movies which many cannot claim. She made her debut in "Sorry, I Love You" (2004). Since then she has been playing supporting but significant roles. Most would know her from "I need romance" (2011) where she played a character inspired by "Samantha" from "Sex in the city". 

It is more typical for female supporting characters to be the bitchy and over the top 3rd wheel caricatures. However, Choi Yeo-Jin bring a certain level of emotional vulnerability to her roles that her roles end up being more complex and enduring. I actually like her better than the female lead in most of her show. While I wish she would break out of her supporting role status, it is unlikely considering how the Korean drama industry work. This is rather regrettable.
