Actress Jin Ji Hee is receiving praise for skillfully transitioning from a bully to a victim of bullying to a good daughter in the record-smashing SBS drama, Penthouse.
As such, her career as a child actress as well as her past remarks regarding being the first child actress to have an anti-fan café resurfaced.
Jin Ji Hee rose to stardom through her appearance in the 2009 drama, High Kick Through The Roof.
And she played a character who was rebellious toward her big brother and bullied the character of the fellow actress, Seo Shin Ae.
She played her character so well that there was even an anti-fan café.
But during an interview with Seoul Shinmoon at the time, she expressed her mature thoughts regarding the hate.
My role is to harass Shin Ae Unnie. So I’m just going to work hard at my job.

She also shared the advice that her director gave her and made her stance clear.
The director comforted me by saying that we just started a 100 meter race, so I can’t be discouraged or give up yet.
