Born in Daegu as Jung Eun-ran, she adopted the stage name Min Hyo-rin when she began modeling 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. 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.
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. 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 So-ra, Min played Cha Tae-hyun's love interest in the 2012 period comedy The Grand Heist. Both were huge box office hits. In 2012, Min co-starred with Jo Sung-ha and Park Jin-young in A Millionaire on the Run (also known as Five Million Dollar Man). She next starred in Twenty, a film that depicts the lives and loves of three male friends in their twenties.
In 2015, Min headlined the music drama Persevere Goo Hae Ra, produced by Mnet.
In March 2017, Min signed with Plum Entertainment after her contract with JYP Entertainment ended. The same year, she starred in the two-episode drama The Happy Loner and the cycling film Uhm Bok-dong.
Min has been in a relationship with singer Taeyang, member of the South Korean boy band Big Bang since 2013. In December 2017, it was confirmed by their respective agencies that they were engaged. They married on 3 February 2018 in a private church ceremony.
