Lim Ji-yeon’s Career
Lim Ji-yeon’s acting began with short films and series. She debuted in 2010 and appeared in several short films and series, but she did not get much attention.

Lim Ji-yeon got her first lead role in the erotic thriller film Obsessed which was released in 2014. The film became a big success, and she received positive reviews from audiences. She also appeared in some films and dramas afterward and on reality shows such as Law of the Jungle and Running Man.
Lim Ji-yeon on Running Man
Lim Ji-yeon appeared three times on Running Man: episode 281, 318, and 320. The first time she appeared on Running Man, she did not participate much in the games because she was a game presenter that day. The theme of the game that day was The House, and Running Man members had to acquire as much “property” in The House as possible when playing some games. The winner that day was Gary, and he gave the prize to Lim Ji-yeon.
On episode 318, Lim Ji-yeon did not appear as a guest but as a cameo. So, in one mission, Ji Suk-jin, one of the Running Man cast, was given a mission to find the owner of the nose silhouette. He had to do that mission as a part of making a three-minute video that would be uploaded to the site. The most popular member whose video was most popular within twenty-four hours would get an advantage in the next race. Then, Ji Suk-jin met Lim Ji-yeon when trying to fit the nose silhouette with Lim Ji-yeon.
On episode 320, Lim Ji-yeon finally appeared as a guest and teamed up with Song Ji-hyo, Ji Suk-jin, and Jo Yoon-hee. They played some games with the theme of Hangul Day: Acquire the Consonant. In the end, Lim Ji-yeon’s team did not win the game.
