Joo Hyun Young - Biography, Profile, Facts, and Career

Joo Hyun Young debuted in 2018 with the drama series titled Govengers. Although she acted as a newcomer actress, she received a good response from the audience.

A year later, she appeared in two more web-based drama series, such as As Your Heart Tells and Best Mistake, where she took on the role of a side character.

Her performance in the drama series Best Mistake (2019) was widely praised, and she was offered to revive her role in the same drama series for the next second and third seasons.

Oddly enough, even though she strived in her acting career, her breakthrough came from a whole different platform. It was in 2021 when she finally took fame for her sense of humor.

In 2021, she joined the cast of the TV show Saturday Night Live Korea: Season 11 and even won multiple awards for her amazing skills as a comedian there.
