After she debuted as a magazine model in high school, Hong appeared in a Johnson & Johnson commercial in 1996, and began her acting career in 1999. In the following decade, true stardom remained elusive as she mostly found herself restricted to supporting roles.[1] Then Hong received strong reviews for her back-to-back strong performances in the 2011 period drama The Princess' Man as a role Princess Kyunghye, and the 2012 quirky comedy History of a Salaryman,[1][2] as well as Goodbye Dear Wife (2012).

In January 2019, Hong signed with new agency Awesome ENT.[3]
