2007–2013: Wonder Girls
In 2007, she was revealed as a third member of Wonder Girls, a girl group managed by JYP Entertainment, after two years of training. The group debuted with the single "Irony", featuring Sohee as a dancer and vocalist with the group. The group quickly rose to stardom with their hits "Tell Me", "So Hot" and "Nobody" in less than two years from their debut. Sohee herself earned the title of "Nation's Little Sister". In particular, she is known for her unique catchphrase "Omona" from the song "Tell Me", which became a national craze.
In an official JYP Entertainment announcement, it was revealed that Sohee would not renew her contract with the company, thus ending her six-year membership as part of Wonder Girls. Her contract with the company expired on December 21, 2013.
Sohee made her acting debut at the age of 14 with a minor role in a short film The Synesthesia For Overtone Construction directed by Yu Dae-eol in 2004, acting as a deaf girl.
In early 2008, Sohee made her big screen debut alongside Lee Mi-sook and Kim Min-hee in the romantic comedy Hellcats, directed by Kwon Chil-in of Singles. The film is adapted from the popular Korean comic 10, 20 and 30, and is about the views of modern Korean women towards love and life.
In 2014, after leaving Wonder Girls and former agency JYP Entertainment, Sohee signed with the management agency, BH Entertainment. The same year, Sohee starred in tvN's romantic comedy series Heart to Heart, playing an aspiring actress.
In 2016, Sohee starred in South Korea's first zombie movie, Train to Busan, playing a high school student and a loyal supporter of the baseball team. The film premiered in the Midnight Screenings section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on May 13, 2016. and later surpassed 11 million admissions. Despite the film's success, Sohee received criticisms for her acting performance. Later that year, she featured in tvN's Korean remake of the American series Entourage, playing the love interest of Seo Kang-joon's character.
