Park Eun-hye (born February 21, 1978) is a South Korean actress.[1] She is best known for starring in Dae Jang Geum, which led to her popularity in China.


Park Eun-hye entered the entertainment industry in 1998, but she only rose to fame in 2003 with a supporting role in hit MBC TV series Dae Jang Geum (also known as Jewel in the Palace), which enjoyed tremendous popularity throughout Asia.[2]

After a secondary lead role in 18 vs. 29,[3] she further solidified her status as a major Korean Wave star with the success of another period drama Yi San (2007) and her Taiwanese series Silence opposite heartthrob Vic Zhou (2006).[4][5]

Park decided to star in Hong Sang-soo's 2008 art film Night and Day even without a salary, and her performance received a Best New Actress award from the prestigious Busan Film Critics Association, her first award in ten years of acting. The next year she returned to television playing a femme fatale in daily drama Pink Lipstick.[6][7]

In 2012 she began co-hosting on cable the variety shows Queen of Beauty on KBS Drama,[8] and Sold Out on tvN.

Park is more popular in China than in her native South Korea,[9] as the sales of the Chinese brands she models for—Hana Cosmetics and Yonseng Tangerine Chocolates (the latter named after her character in Dae Jang Geum) -- went over 25 million dollars in the year 2009.[10][11]

Personal life[edit]

Park Eun-hye married entrepreneur Kim Han-sup on April 27, 2008 at Shilla Hotel in Seoul.[12][13][14] She gave birth to fraternal twin sons in 2011, Kim Jae-wan and Kim Jae-ho.[15][16]
