Meet ‘Miss Photogenic’, Actress Hong In-young!

Back in 2005, there was an actress named Hong In Young that represented South Korea at the Hong Kong-based “Miss Asia Pageant” and won 2 prizes at once as the model. Famed as the beauty who won the titles of ‘1st runner-up’ and ‘Miss Photogenic’, not many know that Hong In Young actually debuted as an actress in the music video for “Wrong” by Lee Seung Hwan in the year 2000.

She was signed under agency Pan Stars Company, who also manage actors such as Ryujin, Tak Jae Hoon, and Choi Sung Jae. However, as you can see on the official website of the agency, her profile is nowhere to be found, which leads to the assumption that she probably left the agency quietly.
