The Youngest South Korean Actress to Stand on the Red Carpet of Cannes Film Festival

When I was watching "Dream High" back in 2011, I did not even think of the possibility of this adorable little sister of Hyemi (Played by Suzy) walking the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival. Moreover, as one of the nominee for the Best Actress award!

Born in 2004, child actress Ahn Seo-hyun is already a veteran actress with 10+ years of experience in the acting field. Her charm point is her huge, puppy-like eyes and endless colors on her palette.
