One of the most entertaining characters on “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” in undoubtedly Yoon HyeJin’s (played by Shin MinA) fangirling best friend Oh JuRi. Oh JuRi is played by child actress Kim MinSeo who has been drawing a lot of attention from fans of the drama for her bright and colourful character as well as her talent at acting. You must have also heard that IU even sent her a coffee truck on set to cheer her on. So, who exactly is Kim MinSeo and where have you seen her before?
Before earning fame through “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”, Kim MinSeo appeared as a regular cast member on ODG’s YouTube channel. ODG is a creative studio that makes YouTube videos with an emphasis on childhood, innocence, and the curiosity of young minds. They feature K-Pop idols, actors, indie artists, K-Hip Hop artists, and more on their videos.
Kim MinSeo is one of the most talked-about children on the channel because of her sharp understanding and perception of things and her calm, sophisticated demeanor. She’s rarely fazed by anything but she is super respectful to others. She has been a child actress for quite a long time now, which is why she’s such a natural in “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”.
Her idol is the one and only IU and in one video, MinSeo is brought face to face with IU but she is told to pretend like she doesn’t recognize her because she often doesn’t recognize famous celebrities.
The video received a great response from fans and both MinSeo and IU grew quite close from then on.
Even though she’s only 12 years old (she was born on April 18, 2009), she has appeared in 6 movies and 3 dramas. She also seems to be rather mature for her age and has concerns of her own.
You can watch more of her videos on ODG’s YouTube channel.
