Choi Jin-sil (December 24, 1968 – October 2, 2008) was a South Korean actress and model. She was considered one of the best actresses in South Korea, nicknamed "The Nation's Actress". Since her debut three decades ago, she played a leading role in dozens of movies, television dramas and commercials.

Choi Jin-sil was born as the first child to her parents Choi Guk-hyeon and Jeong Ok-suk in Seoul, South Korea on December 24, 1968. She had a younger brother, Choi Jin-yeong (최진영) who was also an actor as well as a singer. He committed suicide on March 29, 2010. Choi Jae-sung, star in 1980s and early 90s is her cousin on paternal side.

Her family was so poor that her mother once managed the household by running a pojangmacha(a small street stall selling foods). She dreamed of becoming a star to survive from the poverty. She confessed in talk shows her nickname during her school days was "Choisujebi" because she used to eat "sujebi"(a dumpling soup) instead of ordinary meals due to the home environment.
