Gong started to gain attention as an actress with her role in the historical drama Six Flying Dragons (2015–2016).[8] She won the New Star Award at the SBS Drama Awards.[9] She was then cast in her first leading role in youth sageuk My Only Love Song, which co-stars her We Got Married partner Lee Jong-hyun.[10] The drama premiered on Netflix in 2017.

In 2017, Gong starred in tvN's romantic comedy Introvert Boss.[11] The same year, she took on a lead role in science fiction mystery series Circle.[12]

In 2018, she starred in KBS' science fiction romance drama Are You Human? with Seo Kang-joon.[13][14] She also starred in the short film My Dream Class, and sang the theme song for the movie.[15]
