Jung, who is a member of K-pop act Apink, first took up acting in “Reply 1997,” which stirred up the country with wistful nostalgia of the late 1990s.

Since then, she has had acting roles in works like “That Winter, the Wind Blows (2013), Trot Lovers (2014) Cheer Up! (2015), and Untouchable (2017).”
