Gianna Jun
Birthdate : 30/10/1981
Nationality : South Korea
Workplace : Hong Kong, South Korea
Activities : Actress (4)


Gianna Jun was born in Seoul, South Korea on October 30, 1981. She studied in the Department of Theater and Film at Dongguk University in Seoul, and began her career as a fashion model for Ecole Magazine in 1997.

After appearing in a number of television sitcoms, her movie debut came in 1999 with the film WHITE VALENTINE. This was followed by a role in IL MARE in 2000, which proved to be quite successful. An American remake of IL MARE, THE LAKE HOUSE, starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, was released on June 14, 2006.

In 2001, Jun had her biggest breakthrough with the film MY SASSY GIRL, a romantic comedy which brought her domestic and international recognitions and won her a Best Actress award at the Daejong Film Festival in 2002. In 2004, she starred in the film WINDSTRUCK, a South Korean, fantasy, romantic comedy, which was directed by Kwak Jae-yong. The film was also a major success and was the seventh highest grossing Korean film of 2004. In 2006, she was in the movie DAISY, directed by Hong Kong’s multi-talented Andrew Lau, and she was also in the film A MAN WHO WAS SUPERMAN, in 2008.

In 2009, she made her English-language film debut when she starred as Saya in BLOOD : THE LAST VAMPIRE, which was filmed in China and Argentina in March 2007. It was during filming that she adopted the westernized name Gianna Jun. The film was Jun's first official action film and was a drastic change in her image from previous films.

Gianna Jun remains as one of the most talked about actresses from Asia and is still one of the most popular models for commercial ads. She also recently began production on her new film THIEVES, which is being produced by Casper Films as a co-production between Hong Kong and Korea.

She currently resides in Seoul with her parents.
