Get Closer with Korean Mysterious Girl, Lim Eun-kyung
Lim Eun-kyung or the Mysterious Girl (nickname given by her fans) is a South Korean actress and model. Lim Eun-kyung first rose to fame as the TTL Girl in a series of SK Telecom commercials. She then pursued a professional acting career. Lim Eun-kyung was born as an only child, and her family’s story was later published in 2006. She is also fluent in sign language.
Lim Eun-kyung debuted in 1999 as a model for SK Telecom when she was still in high school. Since then, she has become a famous cultural icon. She appeared in a series of TTL ads. Unfortunately, Resurrection of the Little Match Girl was a box office flop even though it received mixed reviews. Her acting was plain and not impressive. Both critics and audiences only considered her performance there as a replay of her image-oriented work in the former TTL commercials.
