As a teenage actress, she reached the peak of her popularity in the 1970s with the "Really Really" film trilogy, which include Never Forget Me, I Am Really Sorry and I Really Really Like You. Im Ki-hee began modeling in popular teen magazines when she was in junior high school.
Using the stage name Im Ye-jin, she made her acting debut in Kim Ki-young's Transgression in 1974.
Gwyneth Kate Paltrow was born on September 27, 1972, in Los Angeles, California.
After living in Los Angeles, Paltrow moved with her family to New York at age 11.
The precocious young blonde made her stage debut at just five years old in a theater in Massachusetts' Berkshire Mountains, where her mother performed in summer stock.
Im had an innocent, girlish image, whose acting was charming and sweet without being saccharine, and she became hugely popular among middle school and high school students; girls wanted to be like her, and boys had her picture in their pockets.
The "Really Really" series established Im as the most popular young actress of that period, and for the next several years, youth melodramas starring her dominated the theaters in quick succession, often with Lee Deok-hwa as her leading man: Prayer of a Girl (1976), Ever So Much Good!
The film got rave reviews and garnered the highest box office numbers of any film that Paltrow had previously played in, raking in over $300 million.
