Singer and actress Kim Se-Jeong is enjoying a career revival.
The idol highly touted since her 'Produce 101' days in 2016, had a frustratingly difficult time with Gugudan. The group anticipated to be monster rookies, seemingly never was able to achieve their potential despite having Sejeong and Mina, both very popular members of 'IOI'.
The group disbanded after only two years in a shocking reversal of fate for the singer.
After Gugudan's disbandment, Kim appeared in various shows, leaning heavily on her image of being a down-to-earth, humble, and modest person. However, it was only a matter of time before the image wore out.
Acting has always been a fruitful endeavor for the idol. However, it wasn't until 'Uncanny Encounter' that her acting was acknowledged and now her strong showing in 'Business Proposal' has made her a bonafide leading lady, with critics calling her performance a 'life character' for her. We agree.
With the drama only now flying with a tailwind, it's anyone's guess how high the ratings will go. And with the rating, also the idol's career.
