2010–2011: Breakthrough[edit]

Park's breakthrough came with the 2010 drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, a coming-of-age drama in which her character, an intelligent and resourceful young woman, disguises herself as a boy in order to enter the most prestigious learning institution in Joseon.[8][9][10] This was followed in 2011 by another success with City Hunter, based on the titular Japanese manga. Park starred opposite Lee Min-ho in a story about a vigilante out for revenge and justice, and the secret service agent he falls for.[11][12][13] Park's success on the small screen resulted in increased advertising offers for the actress.[14]

Later that year, she made her big screen debut in the horror film The Cat, about a woman who becomes consumed by fear after she adopts a cat found at the site of a mysterious death.[15] Park next appeared in the melodrama Glory Jane, in the role of a nurse's aide who becomes involved with a former baseball player (played by Chun Jung-myung).[16]

2012–present: Leading roles[edit]

Park starred in another manga screen adaptation in 2012; in Dr. Jin, a neurosurgeon (played by Song Seung-heon) travels back in time to 1860. Park played dual roles as the protagonist's girlfriend in the present-day (a comatose doctor), and her doppelgänger in the Joseon era (a sheltered noblewoman).[17][18]

In May 2013, Park Min Young ended her contract with the previous management company King Kong Entertainment and has been a free agent for six months. In November 2013, Park signed with new management agency Culture Depot.[19]

She next played an idealistic intern in the legal drama A New Leaf (2014), who clashes with her brilliant but cynical lawyer boss until he becomes an amnesiac (played by Kim Myung-min).[20][21] This was followed by a role as a tabloid reporter in Healer, a series written by Song Ji-na that also starred Ji Chang-wook and Yoo Ji-tae.[22][23] Healer was popular in China and resulted in increased recognition for Park.[24] Park was then cast in her first Chinese television drama Braveness of the Ming, a period drama based on the novel Silk Night by Yue Guan that also starred Hans Zhang and Jeremy Tsui.[25] The following year, she was cast in her second Chinese drama, City of Time alongside Chinese actor Zhang Zhehan.[26]

Park next starred as a lawyer in the Korean drama Remember on SBS from late 2015 to early 2016,[27] and played a Queen in the historical drama, Queen for Seven Days, which aired in 2017.[28] In September 2017, It was confirmed that Park will be a fixed cast member in Netflix's variety show Busted!.[29] In November 2017, it was reported that Park Min Young's contract with her agency Culture Depot has expired.[30] In December 2017, Park signed with new management agency Namoo Actors.[31]

In 2018, Park was cast in her first romantic comedy drama What's Wrong with Secretary Kim alongside Park Seo-joon.[32][33] The series was a ratings success, leading to increased popularity for Park.[34] In October, Park held her first fan meeting since her debut 12 years ago titled My Day.[35][36]

In 2019, Park starred in her second romantic comedy drama Her Private Life alongside Kim Jae-wook. Park played Seong Deok-mi who works as a curator at an art museum but spends her time outside of work as a passionate fangirl of idol groups.[37]
