Cho Yeo Jeong caught the attention of K-drama fans for her participation in "Ms. Perfect" where she played the possessive role of Lee Eun Hee. Although the drama failed to finish off strong, the actress managed to leave a mark for her character in the recently ended program.

When asked about the most difficult scene she has done for the mystery drama, Cho Yeo Jeong confessed it was a challenge to portray the character in general. She even had to set her mind that she is crazy about someone in order to bring out the Lee Eun Hee in her.

"Going into the project, I set the keyword [for the character] as obsession," she told Korea Joongang Daily. "But the thing is, I am rarely that obsessed with a person, so for me, it was a challenge."

Since Lee Eun Hee was an abused child, Cho Yeo Jeong had to imagine that she has been through the same experience to appear genuine in "Ms. Perfect."

"I imagined a lot. Sometimes actors must rely on imagination. I thought maybe through this experience, she didn't become depressed but rather [braver]," she explained.

The 36-year-old actress is best known for her roles in "Obsessed," "Babysitter" and "The Servant." But despite her award-winning performance in these projects, Cho Yeo Jeong doesn't think she was at her best during the early stage of her acting career.

"I feel like I was able to portray my character in "Ms. Perfect" because I have reached the age I'm at and naturally have some life experiences and perspectives. It was just a role that fit my age," she added.

Meanwhile, "Ms. Perfect" just started airing in Japan last Friday, May 12, on KNTV as per Soompi. On top of that, the KBS2 series will be exported to nine other countries including Hong Kong, Vietnam, Mongolia, Taiwan and Cambodia.

The Ko So Young-led series ended its 20-episode run on May 2 with an average nationwide rating of 4.7 percent.
