Song Hye-kyo Biography

When Song Hye-kyo was born, she was sick and her parents and doctor thought she would never make it. Miraculously Hye-kyo survived and her parents only registered her birth on February 26, 1982.

Song Hye-kyo was introduced into the entertainment world when she won the MTM model contest in 1996 and started appearing on some TV shows; she was just 15.

Song Hye-kyo breakthrough was in 2000 with popular TV drama “Autumn In My Heart” (also known as “Autumn Tale” or “Endless Love”) starring alongside Song Seung-hun and Won-bin.

Not only did she become one of the most popular actresses in Korea, the sad-romance drama swept across Asia… Song Hye-kyo and her co-actors became Asian superstar.

Song Hye-kyo starred in another Asian hit South Korean TV drama “Hotelier” in 2001 and once again won her fans with her performance in 2003 with “All In,” where she met Lee Byung-hun and started a relationship that ended in 2005.

Song Hye-kyo co-starred with rising Korean pop-singer Rain (Bi) in 2004 TV drama “Full House” and unsurprisingly, she won the heart of Asian fans once again.

Song Hye-kyo is also a popular face for TV commercials, and she starred her first movie in 2005 “My Girl and I” with Cha Tae-hyun. Her movie adventure was however not as successful as her TV adventure, but she is not giving up.

Song Hye-kyo has just finished filming her latest movie based on the real life story of a 16th century kisaeng, “Hwang Jin-i.”

Why I like Song Hye-kyo

Song Hye-kyo is probably not the love-at-first-sight type of girl, but the more you see her, the more you will like her.

I think Song Hye-kyo is pleasantly beautiful, and has the kind of girl-next-door feeling. Her popularity is not solely on her appearance, she is well known for her acting performance.
