Son wanted to do a more enjoyable project after shooting the dark mystery at White Night, so she chose Personal Taste, followed by the horror-romantic comedy film Spellbound, which was one of the top-grossing films in 2011 and by far the most popular Korean romantic comedy film in recent years.

Critics lauded Son's "unfathomable" role in her portrayal of "the unfathomable depths of Deokhye's emotional ups and downs, earning multiple accolades for her appearance.

Son reunited with Hyun Bin in the worldwide hit romance drama Crash Landing on You as a wealthy heiress who falls in love with a North Korean commission officer. The drama, which was also the third-highest-rated Korean drama in cable television history, was a huge success.
