Exploring Kim Ji-soo's distinguished career is similar to traveling the winding roads of a seasoned actor's journey. Let's examine Kim Ji-soo's top 10 accomplishments, each of which serves as a tribute to his remarkable talent and the imprint he has made on the South Korean entertainment industry, to understand the essence of his success.
1. Angry Mom
Oh Ah Ran's mother, Jo Gang Ja, is portrayed by Kim Hee Sun in Kim Yoo Jung. She learns that her daughter is being bullied at school, which drives her to pose as a high schooler to track down the bully. While working as a cover, she meets Ji Soo's character, Go Bok Dong, who takes her under his wing and eventually falls in love with her. Without a doubt, one of Ji Soo's best performances was as the troubled Go Bok Dong. Even though he isn't the primary character, he leaves one of the strongest imprints on the entire series because of his almost effortless ability to convey such misery and pain through his portrayal. Not to mention how comical it is to see him sulk over Jo Gang Ja, who he had no idea was his mother!
