3. Lee Ha Nee as Hera
Actress Lee Ha Nee (also known as Lee Honey) is undeniably irresistible — with her gorgeous face and physique. As “Miss Korea”, Lee Ha Nee has frequently been dubbed the “ideal type” for many. Sounds like Hera, the Greek goddess of marriage!
4. Park Shin Hye as Hestia
Actress Park Shin Hye surely charmed K-Drama lovers with her breathtaking visual as Emma in Memories of the Alhambra. Emma, as a character, symbolized peace. Likewise, Park Shin Hye’s counterpart of Hestia, the Greek goddess of the hearth, is also a representation of tranquility!
5. Han Ji Min as Demeter
Actress Han Ji Min, known and highly praised for her charitable nature and selfless ways of giving back to the community, is perhaps the best and inevitable fit for Demeter the Greek goddess of harvest.
6. Ha Ji Won as Athena
Actress Ha Ji Won is, by far, one of the most beloved “Action Queens” in the industry. Her unique filmography, filled with both hard action and rom-coms, prove her versatility. Her unrivaled ferocity on set resembles that of Athena’s, the Greek goddess of war and wisdom.
7. Han Ye Seul as Aphrodite
Actress Han Ye Seul is gloriously beautiful — and she knows it. She is confident, as her previous YouTube videos and interviews prove, and that shining confidence easily attracts everyone. She is the Greek goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite herself.
8. Jun Ji Hyun as Artemis
Actress Jun Ji Hyun is almost always mentioned when K-Movie and K-Drama fans discuss the industry’s best actresses who “come with an irreplaceable aura“. With her mysteriously chic and enchanting aura, Jun Ji Hyun is the perfect fit for Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon.
9. Kim Seo Hyung as Hades
Actress Kim Seo Hyung’s most chilling, terrifyingly eerie portrayal of dark and twisted roles in her previous K-Dramas like Sky Castle and Nobody Knows has made it clear: She is Hades, the Greek god of the underworld.
10. Kim So Hyun as Persephone
Actress Kim So Hyun’s smile is often thought to be warm, bright, and energetic. With her ability to light up a room simply with her presence, Kim So Hyun is most definitely the Greek goddess of spring growth — Persephone.

Finally, idol-and-actress Seohyun of Girls’ Generation is Psyche, the Greek goddess of the soul. It only makes sense, considering that her Girls’ Generation teammates and fans have forever known and loved her for being the most righteous and stable soul in the group!
