[ +187 / -6] hahaha I thought it was the woman in the at first so I was shocked haha

[ +109 / -158] I heard both parents of Jeon Ji Hyun are Chinese

[ +105 / -8] Wow.. You really can’t hide genetics…

[ +59 / -3] According to Chinese sources, there are Chinese people who are proud of her because her parents moved to Korea in the past. I heard that is also a reason why ‘My Love From The Star’ became popular as well. It is an widely known fact that she is a Chinese immigrant in Korea.

[ +56 / -3] Her mother’s last name is Mook. I don’t know if she is Chinese but I know that her last name doesn’t exist in Korea.. I think Jeon ji Hyun is a Chinese immigrant but it’s just that she just won’t admit it…

[ +38 / 0] Wow there are still people that doesn’t know Jeon Ji Hyun is a Chinese immigrant
