Jung So-min (born Kim Yoon-ji on March 16, 1989) is a South Korean actress.
Jung So-min attracted attention when she made her acting debut in 2010 with a supporting role in the television series Bad Guy. This led to a leading role in her next project Playful Kiss, the Korean adaptation of the popular manga Itazura na Kiss. Though it received low ratings in Korea, the fame of her costar Kim Hyun-joong made the romantic comedy popular overseas, further raising Jung's profile.
Jung then took a short break in 2011 to concentrate on her studies at the Korea National University of Arts. In 2012 she returned to the small screen as part of the ensemble cast of the sitcom Standby. Later that year, she played a more adult role opposite Sung Joon in the cable series Can We Get Married?.
In 2014, Jung played a self-centered heiress who falls for the protagonist (played by Kang Ji-hwan) in Big Man. This was followed in 2015 by a supporting role in coming-of-age film Twenty, and leading roles in horror-romance film Alice: Boy from Wonderland and disaster/medical drama D-Day.
