An excellent start, but struggling to establish a stable base

Despite an exceptionally strong start, Shin Hyun Been struggled in her later years, and her lead roles in the K-dramas “Mimi”, “Mistress”, “Confession”, “Reflection of You” and “Monstrous” did not fare as well according to with expectations.
