Back in 2010, Lee Yoo Mi was featured in one of her first ever productions following her debut called Future Boy. In the EBS series, she played the role of Seo Yun Doo. While her character, Seo Yun Doo, was an elementary school student, Lee Yoo Mi was 17-years-old at the time.

This fact brought even more shock upon Korean netizens due to the fact that she would have been 18-years-old in Korean age. They couldn’t believe her youthful visuals!


But upon further investigation, it’s not all that surprising given her naturally youthful looks. If we didn’t know she was a 17-year-old in these captures, we would have assumed Lee Yoo Mi was in elementary school!


Korean netizens left their shock in the comments, such as “she’s so youthful looking,” “even looking at the pictures now, she looks like an elementary student,” and more.


However, Lee Yoo Mi’s youthful visuals didn’t end in her teens as the stunning actress portrayed a high school student in All Of Us Are Dead at 27 years old.
