Career

As a student at Anyang Art High School,[3] Park posted photographs of herself on the internet, becoming an online celebrity due to her close physical resemblance to actress Jun Ji-hyun.[4][5] After being signed by an entertainment agency, she made her acting debut in the 2003 horror film Wishing Stairs, her part requiring her to learn ballet over a two-month period of rigorous training.[6][7]

Having since appeared in a succession of television drama series, Park returned to the big screen with a role in the 2008 film Fate.[8] She then went on to star in the horror film Yoga later the same year.[9][10] In 2010, Park starred in the coming-of-age film My Black Mini Dress, based on the same titled chick lit novel by Kim Min-seo.[11]

In July 2012, Park co-starred with Kim Ji-seok in horror film Two Moons, playing the role of So-hee, a horror fiction novelist with a hidden secret.[12][13] Park then starred in another horror film Bunshinsaba 2 directed by Ahn Byeong-ki, marking her acting debut in China.[14][15]

Park returned to TV, starring in the daily drama One Well-Raised Daughter.[16] In 2015, she starred in the melodrama I Have a Lover, where she attracted attention with her portrayal of a morally ambiguous woman.[17] In 2017, she took on the titular role in MBC's variety drama Borg Mom.[18]

In 2019, Park is set to star in the romance melodrama Love in Sadness, a remake of the 1999 TBS drama Beautiful Person.[19]

Personal life

In June 2009, K-pop singer Seven acknowledged on his website that he and Park had been in a relationship for seven years, with the couple having first met when they were seniors in high school. Seven had previously denied rumors that they were a couple in order to protect Park's privacy and let the relationship grow naturally.[20][21] On December 23, 2014, a statement was released by Park's agency stating that she and Seven had ended their 12-year relationship earlier on in the year.[22]

On November 24, 2017, it was announced that Park had married a non-celebrity earlier that year, and that they planned to have the ceremony in 2018 with family and friends. The couple had met three years prior and entered into a relationship sometime in the beginning of 2017. It was also announced that Park was 15 weeks pregnant.[23][24][25][26] On April 30, 2018, it was reported that Park had given birth to a son.[27]
