A Busan native, she enjoyed making people laugh from an early age. According to an interview, during her third year of high school, she started to prepare for a career of professional acting, to overcome a broken heart. She eventually attended the Seoul Institute of the Arts, a leading university for arts and entertainment in South Korea. In 2011, she participated in a 30th anniversary memorial play on a college society called 'Venture to meet' (만남의 시도), with Jang Jin, a well-known film director. Months later on the mid-2011, when Jang Jin was looking for cast members for the live comic variety show called Saturday Night Live Korea (SNL Korea), he recruited Kim Seul-gie as a cast member. While gaining support on this experimental live programme consistently, her popularity has also significantly increased, especially in the latter half of 2012.
As of January 2014, she is taking her time off from college, and performing her acting career in various fields. She is a member of both as so-called Jang Jin's Division (장진사단, a group of entertainers who have been influenced by Jang Jin), and part of his Entertainment company called 'Film-it-suda' (필름있수다).
