    Actress Jeon In-hwa is busy shooting a drama that has received good ratings since the first episode aired in early September.

    In the weekend drama, "My Daughter Gum Sa-wol," Jeon plays a woman seeking to take revenge against her husband, who tricked her into marrying him and killed her father. At the same time, the woman is secretly helping her daughter -- fathered by her ex-boyfriend -- realize her dream of becoming an architect.

    Watching to see how the vendetta unfolds has proved popular with viewers.

    "I barely manage a couple of hours' sleep these days due to my tight shooting schedule," Jeon said. Amazingly, though, the 50-something actress still looks great. What's her secret?

    "Easing your mind is important. I meditate and do yoga to deal with stress. Of course, I regularly visit the dermatologist to keep my skin blemish-free. I have to do at least that much for my job, but I think too much care can irritate your skin."

    Jeon's husband Yoo Dong-geun has given her a lot of support during her grueling schedule. "At 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays when the drama airs, he sits in front of the television and advises me on my acting and costumes. Even when he goes out for dinner, he makes sure he's back in time to see the start of the show," Jeon said, adding that Yoo has never missed an episode. "We've been married for 27 years, and I'm thankful for him all over again," she said.

    Jeon has played many big roles but is now eager to work on a film. "I have never appeared in a movie," she said. "I want to find a role that suits me before I get much older."
