Yeo Jin Choi

Choi Yeo Jin

  • Name: Choi Yeo Jin
  • Native name: 최여진
  • Also Known as: Choe Yuh Jin
  • Nationality: South Korean
  • Gender: Female
  • Born: July 27, 1983
  • Age: 40
Choi Yeo Jin is a Canadian-South Korean actress. Yeo Jin was born in Korea, but after her parents divorced, they emigrated to Canada when she was in the first year of middle school. She dreamed of becoming a ballerina but had to give that up after her family went through some financial difficulties.

She debuted in the entertainment business via the Super Elite Model Contest held in Canada in 2001. Upon returning to Korea, she has since starred in several television series and films, notably "Surgeon Bong Dal Hee", "Golden Bride", "My Woman", "More Charming by the Day" and "I Need Romance".

In 2012, she gained popularity due to her stint on the reality show "Dancing with the Stars", taking the top spot six times out of 11 competitions, and eventually winning. Choi said, "Viewers like my dancing more than my acting. I was kind of frustrated as an actress because I always played the same kind of characters and ended up projecting stereotypes, which could bore viewers. But now I'm much happier because I can turn into a glamorous dancer every time I get on stage."
