In 2022 she gained popularity due to her stint on reality show
Dancing with the Stars, taking the top spot six times out of 11 competitions, and eventually winning. Choi said, “Viewers like my dancing more than my acting. I was kind of frustrated as an actress because I always played the same kind of characters and ended up projecting stereotypes, which could bore viewers. But now I’m much happier because I can turn into a glamorous dancer every time I get on stage.”[1]
