Kang Hye-jung Career


Kang Hye-jung began as a model in her first year of high school.

She appeared in small parts in television dramas and sitcoms like Jump and Nonstop 3. Her first film appearance was in Moon Seung-wook's arthouse/sci-fi film Nabi, for which she received the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival's Best Actress award. Following this, she appeared in a short film by Song Il-gon named Flush as well as an internet film Naebang-nebang.

In the modern-day classic Oldboy starring Park Chan-wook, Kang's first major hit film was opposite Choi Min-sik. Mi-do's portrayal attracted a lot of attention both nationally and internationally, as well as the Grand Bell Awards and Pusan Film Critics Association awards for acting. She appeared in Cut, Park's 30-minute contribution to the omnibus horror film Three... Extremes the following year.

Kang made a name for herself outside of her appearance in Oldboy in 2005. She appeared in Rules of Dating, a dramatic love film in which she appeared opposite Park Hae-il, as an unexpected hit, and then two months later she played a small but important part in the box office megahit Welcome to Dongmakgol. She was ranked among the top ten most bankable actors in a 2005 survey of influential movie makers.

Pen-ek Ratanaruang sang of Love Phobia opposite then-boyfriend Cho Seung-woo and in the Thai film Invisible Waves in 2006.

In 2009, Kang starred in two different romantic comedies with roles she imbued with her trademark quirkiness, first as the developmentalally impaired daughter to veteran actress Bae Jong-ok. Why Did You Come to My House? She said she wondered Why Did You Come to My House? The director said she had planned the script with Kang in mind from the start in the hopes to "expand the realms" of her lovelorn stalker role. She played a woman who was trying to murder her with a professional assassin (Shin Hyun-joon), but he falls in love with her instead.

Kang, who is known for her risky work, has gradually started going off the predictable path that the public expected her to take. She played an ordinary twenty-something girl in Girlfriends, 2009, when she discovers that her boyfriend is also involved with two other women. Kang said that this work change represented the few interesting scripts she receives, as well as her calmer, kinder state of mind after settling down.

Kang appeared in her first stage play Proof in 2010, portraying Catherine, who is worried that she has inherited all of her mathematician father's genius and lunacy.

Kang returned to television in 2011 in MBC's Miss Ripley, a tale of one woman (Lee Da-hae) who weaves a web of passion, passion, and lies, after making the little-seen 2007 KBS drama Flowers for My Life with Cha Tae-hyun. Kang appeared in an early stage as a drama with four lead roles, but after her dramatically reduced screen time, she expressed surprise and disappointment.

Kang made her English-language debut in the Culture clash romantic comedy Wedding Palace. Kang was apparently cast by director Christine Yoo after she captivated Yoo's interest in Oldboy, and Dongmakgol grabbed Yoo's attention. The US-Korea co-production premiered at the 2011 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and received the Independent Feature Filmmakers Award at the 2011 Cine Gear Expo, spanning a one-year period from October 2008 to November 2009.

Kang was last seen on rom-com cable TV show The Wedding Plan, a kimchi factory president who is so keen to marry off her four children that she begins a grand marriage scheme by bringing her children to cohabitate with prospective groom candidates. "I've played a lot of good or innocent characters before," she said of her role as the second eldest daughter, a strong and smart career woman, so I see this as a chance to face a new challenge."

Kang left her old management firm YG Entertainment (which is also her husband's brand) in 2013 and joined C-Jes Entertainment. She later appeared in E J-yong's "Mockumentary Behind the Camera" and wrote the lyrics to "Good Thing," one of Bobby Kim's album Mirror's songs.

In late 2014, Kang appeared in her second stage play Educating Rita about a hairdresser's relationship with a middle-aged university lecturer. She appeared in the film How to Steal a Dog, as a supporting actress.

Kang appeared in the film My Wife in 2016.

Kang appeared in the sci-fi thriller Lucid Dream in 2017. Jugglers, a holiday comedy series, made her return to television in December 2017.
