Kristina Sunshine Jung, born on August 1, 1978, is an entrepreneur, less-known actress, and self-proclaimed poet. Moreover, she is the daughter of George Jung-one of the most blatant drug dealer and smuggler of all time in the world.
Her mother Mirtha Jung divorced her father in 1984 when Kristina was just a six-year-old. George Jung is also responsible for 85% of drugs smuggled into the United States during 70’s and ’80s.
Such contrary recognition of her father as a “drug lord” must have been the reason for her parent’s divorce. Kristina came into limelight when she was featured in a movie depicted about her fathers’ criminal days as a drug dealer.
Kristina Jung went through tough times in her young age. She grew up in harsh situations, with a complete absence of family life.
After the divorce of her parents, Kristina lived with her mother. Life was not easy to live without the love of her father.
During that phase of life, her grandparents, Fredrick Jung, and Ermine Jung were her most significant support. They took responsibility for her schooling and all the needs.
Everything was excellent, her relationship with her grandparents was growing stronger than ever, but she faced a tragic loss of her grandparents at the age of 18. Then, she was taken care of by her aunt, Marie Jung.

She is currently running her clothing business under the name of “BG Apparel,” which is doing pretty well. Also, she generates extra income from acting in the movies.
