Jung Eun-ran (born February 28, 1986), better known by her stage name Min Hyo-rin, is a South Korean actress and singer.


Min Hyo-rin first modeled for the clothing brand "Flapper" in 2006. She then appeared in several music videos for Park Ki-young and F.T. Island. Before her singing debut, large teaser posters of her were displayed around the hot spots of Seoul as a promotional stunt. She released the album RinZ in 2007, and the single Touch Me in 2008.

In 2009 Min made her acting debut in the TV series Triple opposite Lee Jung-jae and Song Joong-ki.[1][2][3] She was the lead actress in a 2010 web series adapted from Alain de Botton's novel Romantic Movement, with four different directors each shooting short films in various locations around Seoul.[4]

Min was paired with singer Seven in the reality show Fox's Butler,[5] and hosted the sixth season of cable channel Mnet's Trend Report Feel from 2010 to 2011.

In 2011 she and Choi Daniel starred in Age of Milk, a short film that was shot using a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and aired on cable channel OCN.[6][7] Later that year, she was cast in the TV series Romance Town with Sung Yu-ri and Kim Min-joon, and appeared in Song Jieun's music video "Going Crazy."

After being part of the ensemble cast of 2011 retro drama Sunny along with Shim Eun-kyung and Kang Sora,[8] Min played Cha Tae-hyun's love interest in the 2012 period film The Grand Heist.[9] Both were huge box office hits. Min also co-starred with Jo Sung-ha and Park Jin-young in A Millionaire on the Run (also known as Five Million Dollar Man).[10][11]
