Korean actress Park Min-young, already known for her slim figure, has further slimmed down for her latest role.
The popular star is reported to currently weigh only 37kg.
This weight loss is noticeable in new stills from the upcoming K-drama.
The 37-year-old actress is starring in Marry My Husband, based on a webtoon that revolves around Kang Ji-won, who is trapped in a life with an unfaithful husband and a demanding mother-in-law.
Adding to the complications, Ji-won receives a devastating diagnosis of cancer and discovers the shocking truth about her husband's affair.
However, her story takes a turn when she travels back 10 years into the past, initiating a plan for revenge.
Park, portraying Ji-won, bears a striking resemblance to a screenshot from the original webtoon shared on a Korean portal.
This character marks a departure from her usual bubbly roles in hits like What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim and Her Private Life.
According to soompi.com, the production team stated that Park put a lot of effort into this role, even surprising everyone on set. "Look forward to the ever-changing vibes of Kang Ji-won before and after her revival, which will be portrayed brilliantly."
Despite the transformation, Park's thin appearance has raised concerns among some fans who worry about the actress's health, speculating that she may be taking it too far.
And others have commended the actress for her dedication to realistically portray the character of a cancer patient.
One fan on X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote: "Park Min Young put her heart and soul into losing weight to 37kg in order to digest (the role) more thoroughly."
The 16-episode Marry My Husband is scheduled to air in January 2024 on tvN and features co-stars Na In-woo, Song Ha-yoon and Lee Yi-kyung.
