Actress Jang Jin-young Battling Cancer

September 26, 2008 at 10:58 am | Posted in Stars | 1 Comment

Acclaimed actress Jang Jin-young has started receiving cancer treatment after finding out on Wednesday that she has stomach cancer. She is currently in Seoul National University Hospital to receive her first round of chemotherapy.

Jang’s management firm confirmed Thursday afternoon that the talented actress has cancer, but it’s not terminal as some reports have claimed. The agency also said that she is expected to make a full recovery once she goes through all the treatment.

Jang began her career as a model before switching to acting in 1998. Since her debut, she has won critical acclaims and many awards. She won a prestigious Blue Dragon Film Award for Best Actress with her first starring role in a psychological thriller “Sorum (Shivers)” in 2001, and another one for romantic comedy “Singles” in 2003. Jang is only the second actress to have won two Blue Dragon Film Awards for Best Actress. Her latest appearance was on the 2007 SBS drama series “Lobbyist,” a 10-million-dollar production about weapons lobbyists and political conspiracies.
