Song dreamed of becoming an actress during her high school years after watching Park Shin-yang in the 1998 South Korean film, Promise.

CareerEdit

2001–2005: Career beginningsEdit

Before Song debuted as an actress, she was a model for Kiki Magazine.

Song then appeared in the music videos of Lee Soo-young's "And I Love You" and JTL's "Just Say Goodbye".[2] She also made a cameo appearance in the television series Age of Innocence.[citation needed]

Song made her feature film debut in Wishing Stairs (2003), the third installment of the horror Whispering Corridors film series, after beating out 3000 actors in an audition.[3] Then she was nominated for the Best New Actress at the 24th Blue Dragon Film Awards for her performance in the film. She starred in the crime thriller Some (2004), where she played a reporter.[4]

2006–2009: Rising popularityEdit

Song made her television debut in the romantic comedy, Princess Hours (2006), where she played a ballet dancer who dreams to be a ballerina.[5][6] The series became hit across Asia, contributing to the Korean Wave.

The film became one of the highest-grossing films of 2008, and led to increased recognition for Song. She later commented about the film and her nude scenes, "When I decided to do this film, nudity was not the central issue. How much I expose is not important to me; I thought without that scene, it would be difficult to portray the subtle changes in emotion. What mattered to me at the time was working on my facial expressions apart from the posture that the director wanted me to convey".[11]
