Park Shin-hye (Hangul박신혜; born February 18, 1990) is a South Korean actress, singer and dancer. She is best known for her leading roles in the television dramas You're Beautiful (2009), Heartstrings (2011), Flower Boys Next Door (2013), The Heirs (2013) and Pinocchio (2014-2015).

Early life[edit]Edit

Park Shin-hye was born in Gwangju, but raised in Songpa DistrictSeoul. Shin-hye made her debut through the music video "Flower" by the singer Lee Seung-hwan and stepped into the entertainment world.[1] Afterwards, she got a formal training in singing, dancing and acting.[2] She currently majors in Theater and Film at 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 HeavenLee Wan.[3] 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. She was also praised for speaking her lines in fluent Japanese despite the fact she does not speak the language herself. 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, where had it been an older actress, such scenes may have occurred. Tree of Heaven started with borderline mediocre ratings, as do many new Korean dramas, 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. The series was also aired in Japan giving Park more exposure abroad.[4][5] 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 sang 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 as the main character, and the other as 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. In January 2007, 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 with Jang Keun-suk. The drama increased her popularity worldwide and she also sang the songs Lovely Day (song) and 'Without Words' for the You're Beautiful original soundtrack. In 2010 she starred in the low-budget romantic comedy film Cyrano Agencywhich revolved around a dating agency that helps its customers win the hearts of the people they desire. The film was a sleeper hit becoming a critical and commercial success attracting 2.7 million admissions nationwide becoming the 8th best selling film of the year.[6] Her 2011 drama Heartstrings began airing on June 29, 2011. Jung Yong-hwa, a co-star from You're Beautiful, played the male lead opposite her.

In 2012, Park was featured in the first three episodes of the show Music and Lyrics with Yoon Gun (윤건) of Korean R&B duo Brown Eyes (브라운아이즈). Music and Lyricsis a reality/romance show that collaborates a top actress and an amazing songwriter to write a one-of-a-kind song in 30 days.[7] Their efforts produced the song "I Think of You" which has never been officially released.

Yeon-hwa haunted Moon-Ki who was involved in a car accident and lost his memories.[8] Her portrayal of Yeon-hwa won her the "Best One-Act Special Actress" Award at the 2012 KBS Drama Awards.

On October 31, 2012, It was announced that Park would star in the third installment of tvN's "flower boy" series called Flower Boys Next Door, along with actor Yoon Shi Yoon.[9] The drama series aired from January 7 to the 25th of February 2013.
