Happy Birthday, Yang Mi-Kyung!
Tuesday 25th July marks the birthday of Yang Mi-Kyung, the Korean actress who played Lady Han in Dae Jang Geum. Yang Mi-Kyung was awarded MBC's Special Performance Prize in 2003 for her exceptional portrayal of Lady Han. In the drama, Lady Han is one of the teachers of the Royal Kitchen, and a mentor to Jang Geum. Strict in her principles, yet warm-hearted; she loves Jang Geum like a daughter.
The character of Lady Han was probably the most diverse role in Dae Jang Geum; as she needed to maintain a cold exterior but at the same time show the audience she had a weaker and softer side, which she rarely showed to outsiders.
