After becoming a top star in Kbiz through the 2000 KBS drama Autumn in My Heart, Song Hye Kyo has continuously appeared in popular works, maintaining her position as the “Queen of Korean TV Dramas.” Her beautiful appearance and versatile acting abilities in any genre have contributed significantly to her success as an actress. In particular, through The Glory, Song Hye Kyo has demonstrated her potential as an actress capable of handling suspenseful genres, leaving a lasting impression and opening up many prospects for the future.
Song Hye Kyo first became known in 1998 through the SBS sitcom Soonpoong Clinic. In this work, she played the role of Oh Hye Kyo and brought many laughs with her “auntie” image. However, just two years later, in 2000, she transformed into an icon of innocence and purity with Autumn in My Heart, and became popular all over Asia.
Since then, Song Hye Kyo’s career has continuously progressed. She has appeared in popular TV dramas such as Hotelier, Guardian Angel, All In, Full House, and Worlds Inside, earning the title of “Queen of Ratings.” During this time, the term “Tae-Hye-Ji” was used to refer to the trio of beautiful actresses Kim Tae Hee, Song Hye Kyo, and Jun Ji Hyun.
After appearing in critically acclaimed works such as Worlds Inside and That Winter, the Wind Blows, Song Hye Kyo once again achieved success with the 2016 KBS TV drama Descendants of the Sun, leaving a deep impression on audiences worldwide. Although Encounter and Now, We Are Breaking Up were not huge hits, they consistently recorded ratings around 10%, proving the star power of the actress.
Since last year, she has reminded the public of her presence as the “Queen of Korean TV Dramas” through The Glory. Additionally, Song Hye Kyo is also known as the “concept actress.” Since 2012, she has sponsored the installation of Korean-language guidance at memorials, museums, and art galleries worldwide with Professor Seo Kyung Deok of Sungshin Women’s University. She has also participated in numerous volunteer activities and played an important role as a Hallyu star.
