Sitting poised and pretty in a beautiful red dress, Lee Yeon Hee looked radiant as she greeted members of the press at the launch the SK-II Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence Collection. The SK-II brand ambassador who swears by the wildly popular facial essence, wore very little makeup, choosing to let her natural beauty shine through. Twenty-six year old Lee Yeon Hee has amassed a fine repertoire of work since starting her career starring in music videos at the age of 13. Her body of work includes films like Millionaire’s First Love, Hello, Schoolgirl, Marriage Blue, TV dramas Emperor of the Sea, Rebirth, East of Eden, Phantom, Gu Ga Eu Seo and Miss Korea along with numerous music videos for groups like TVXQ, KangTa and Shinhwa among others. Having just wrapped up work on Joseon Detective 2, in which she plays the lead, the Korean actress is now enjoying some well deserved down time. In Singapore, we quizzed her on her secrets to glowing skin and what she looks forward to receiving this festive season.
