Revised Romanization I Na-yeong
Hangul 이나영
Hanja 李娜英/李奈英

Lee Na-young has firmly established herself as one of the Korean film and TV industry's most visible up-and-coming stars. She has proven a versatile and capable actress, playing the role of a deadly warrior in the thriller, "Dream of a Warrior"; a quirky, love-sick public official in the romance-comedy, "Please Teach Me English"; and a reserved, yet charming girl who has secretly admirered a man for 10 years but has never said a word to in romance-comedy, "Someone Special".

In the 25th Blue Dragon Awards (The equivalent of the Academy Awards in Korea, in terms of publicity, since the Grand Bell Awards is the officially recognized movie award ceremony) Lee Na-Young won the award for best actress for her role in "Someone Special".

She got her big break as the star in the critically-accalimed dramatic mini-series Ruler of Your Own World.

A professional model before her acting career, Lee Na-young is truly a unique natural beauty, whose innocent and down-to-earth appearance offers a fresh new look in the Korean film and TV industry.
