Like the South Korean heartthrob, the ‘A Korean Odyssey’ star started out as an idol. After joining the three-piece girl group Luv, 15-year-old Oh Yeon Seo made her music debut in 2002.
Back then, she went by the stage name Haetnim and formed a group with her colleagues Jo Eun Byul and Jeon Hye Bin. Unfortunately, her music career was short-lived after Luv only lasted six months and eventually disbanded.
From then on she tried her hand at acting; the rest is history for Oh Yeon Seo. Interestingly, prior to her acting debut, her mother reportedly consulted a shaman to legally change her name and eventually went to Oh Yeon Seo.
