In the same year, she played a leading role in the drama ‘Girl’s Generation 1979’ opposite actor Seo Young-Joo, who finally became her love interest at the end of the drama.

Just how much is Bona’s net worth? We’ll get to that, but not without digging in a little bit more into the career of Bona as an artist, be it as a member of the girl group WJSN or her acting advancements.
Bona’s Individual Career
As we’ve mentioned before, Bona (full name- Kim Bona) had started acting early in her career, turning into an idol-actress. She started with ‘Hit the Top’ and is currently playing a role in the worldwide hit drama ‘Twenty Five Twenty One’. Bona is a member of WJSN who is the most active in the acting industry. Her worth as an actor was realized soon enough as she played the protagonist in the drama ‘Girl’s Generation 1979’ right after doing a small supporting role in her previous drama.
Later, she went on to play as the female lead in the drama ‘Your House Helper’ in which her love interest was played by the well-known actor from ‘1% of Something’, Ha Seok-Jin. The drama is a slice-of-life drama and focuses on the various problems that individuals face in Korean society.
Bona has also worked in the popular weekend drama ‘Homemade Love Story’ (which aired from 2020-21), where she played the part of the second daughter of Lee Soon Jung (played by Jeon In Hwa). The drama set against the backdrop of the chaotic Samkwang Villa, Bona’s character won her affection as she felt that with the growth of her character, she also grew a little bit as an individual. She was attached to her character.
The role that Kim Bona is currently playing in the drama ‘Twenty Five Twenty One’ is that of a fencer who appeared to be a nasty and mean character in the first few episodes but becomes lovable once she starts interacting with Nam Hee-Do, played by Kim Tae Ri, the female lead of the drama.
Bona as a Member of Her Girl Group ‘WJSN’
Bona has been working hard as an idol turned actress. In 2016, when WJSN made its debut, Bona was introduced as an all-rounder who could do both singing and dancing, very well. She grabbed the attention of the public easily because of her beautiful face and well-built physique. Bona trained for a total of 7 years, 6 years under Cube entertainment, and 1 year under Starship entertainment.
It is easy for people to misunderstand an artist who plays the role of an idol and an actor, both at the same time. They might think that they are not giving their all to their group, but that is not something for them to decide anyway. We can never know how much effort an idol puts into working as an idol-actor.
