Cho Hye Jung is an actress previously managed by Jellyfish Entertainment and the last time she was cast in roles was in 2018. Notably, the past few years have not been good for the actress.

The reason for her inactivity in the entertainment industry was due to her father's previous scandal. Her father is veteran actor Cho Jae Hyun, and previously in February of 2018, the veteran actor admitted to sexual harassment allegations brought against him during South Korea's Movement known as #MeToo. 

As a consequence, actress Cho Hye Jung was connected to her father's scandal as she allegedly still supported her family. Cho Hye Jung then went on to garner hate for her father's sexual harassment scandal.

Not long after her father's scandal, actress Cho Hye Jung disappeared. She stopped acting in K-dramas and even halted posting on social media. To an extent, the actress deleted previous posts that netizens saw as "support" for her father and his scandal. 


But now, after four long years, actress Cho Hye Jung has finally returned to the small screen. 

Fans of the actress can now see her in tvN's new K-drama "Our Blues" which is also available on Netflix. Cho Hye Jung plays the character of Dal I, a friend and colleague of Lee Yeong Ok, who is played by Han Ji Min.
