In 2009 she and real-life boyfriend Kim Yong-jun (of boy band SG Wannabe) joined the second season of reality dating show We Got Married, and later that year Hwang rose to multistardom when she appeared in the daily sitcom High Kick Through the Roof. After her turn on High Kick, Hwang signed numerous advertising contracts, and in interviews she often tells the story of how she had just ₩487 (US$0.45) in her bank account when she started the show but walked away with ₩1.2 billion when it ended.
She also began playing leading roles in television series. Among her notable TV dramas are 1970s epic Giant, deaf romance Can You Hear My Heart, and medical drama Golden Time. In 2013, she starred in crime comedy Incarnation of Money, followed by hit melodrama Secret Love. This was followed in 2014 by another 1970s-set period drama, Endless Love.
