Park Shin Hye is a successful South Korean actress, singer and model. She debuted first in the 2003 Lee Seung-Hwan music video “Ggot – Flower.” In addition she received two trophies from SBS Drama Awards. She is best known for the role of “Go Mi Nam” in the popular television drama You’re Beautiful .
Park Shin Hye was born on February 18th, 1990 in Gwangju, Jeollanam-do, South Korea. She had her parents with her and one older brother. She studied at Hak-Kang Elementary School and when she was in 6th grade, she auditioned for pop singer Lee Seung-Hwan’s music company “Dream Factor” in Seoul. There, she began training as an actress, singer and playing piano and guitar. Shin Hye is currently attending Chung-Ang University.
Park’s fame came when she played the younger version of the character Han Jung-suh in the popular Korean drama, Stairway to Heaven. She also starred in a drama series called Tree of Heaven which aired on SBS, starring her former co-star in Stairway to Heaven, Lee Wan. The show had decent ratings, and the reviews and criticism were mixed, but mostly positive. Many critics keyed in on her portrayal of the character Hana’s pain of loving her step brother Yoon-suh Lee Wan as brilliantly done. It should also be noted that due to the age difference between her and Wan, romantic scenes such as kissing on the lips could not occur, as seen in the scenes in the show, where had it been an older actress, such scenes may have occurred. Tree of Heavenstarted with borderline mediocre ratings, as do many new Korean dramas do, but went on to finish very respectably, and gained a fan base in Korea, which further helped Park’s credibility and young career in acting. Since then, Park has done many commercials (CF) and modeled for a number of Asian companies.
Through her roles and their requirements, Park has displayed an instinctive talent for dancing and martial arts. She has also released a digital single, “Prayer”, a song she used to sing in the drama Tree of Heaven, however, the track was not released in the Official OST.
Park made her big screen debut in the movie Evil Twin, a summer horror flick where she had 2 roles; One is of the main character, the other is of the ghost of the main character’s sister, who haunts the other sister after her death. Park was extremely happy to act in this movie, because she had always wanted to act in a period setting drama or movie.
Park starred as one of the four main characters in Goong S, a spin off (not the sequel) to the wildly successful Goong. The series did not match the success of its original, and received borderline ratings. However, the drama was the most re-watched and replayed series in the first half of 2007, gaining fame after the first run. Park later gained more popularity through idol drama series You’re Beautiful. As of now Park Shin Hye’s show You’re Beautiful has been airing in other countries.
Her latest drama, 넌 내게 반했어/You’ve Fallen for Me is set to air on June 29, 2011. Her co-star from “You’re Beautiful” Jung Yong Hwa plays the main lead opposite her.
