Kim Yoo-jung puts acting career on hold

Feb 27,2018
Kim Yoo-jung, who was cast in an upcoming JTBC drama, is taking a break from acting, citing health problems.

A source from her agency, Sidus HQ, said Monday that she felt fatigue from hypothyroidism and stress. The 18-year-old actor was set to star in “Clean with Passion for Now,” a cable drama based on a popular web comic, alongside Ahn Hyo-seop and Song Jae-rim.

Part of the filming has already been completed, but the drama’s release will be postponed from April to the second half of this year in consideration for Kim’s health, production crew said.
