(born February 10, 1981) is a South Korean actress. She is best known for her leading roles in the period films The Servant (2010), The Concubine (2012) and Parasite (2019) as well as starring in the television series I Need Romance (2011).Cho Yeo-jeong debuted as a CeCi Magazine cover girl at the age of 16 in 1997, and began actively acting in 1999. Despite appearing in drama series, music videos, and TV commercials afterwards, she remained obscure. During this period, she was also unhappy with the limited roles being offered to her. Then Jo rose to the spotlight in 2010 by starring as the ambitious Joseon woman of low caste in the erotic period drama The Servant. The R-rated movie, which was a newly adapted and tragic version of Korea's famous folktale The Story of Chunhyang, had been turned down by a few actresses because it contained too many sex scenes. Jo, however, took advantage of the opportunity and it turned out to be a huge stepping stone in her career. Upon the release of the film, Jo successfully escaped being "another pretty face" in Korea's entertainment scene.
