[Actor Spotlight] Park Shin-hye

The next actor in our spotlight series is none other than Park Shin-hye. She’s starring in the highly anticipated Memories of the Alhambra, which is about to premiere on tvN, and it’s poised to be another huge hit for her. Park Shin-hye has been acting since 2003, when she won accolades for her early performances, especially when playing the younger version of a leading lady (a common and effective start for young actors). Her career has been climbing ever since.

Born in 1990 in Gwangju, South Korea, Park Shin-hye is a starlet so famous she’s a household name, but part of her appeal is her “girl next door” vibe. Park’s open, honest style on screen make her quite likeable, and in her best roles, these qualities are used to her advantage. As an actor with such a long-running career, it’s easy to forget she’s still in her 20s! Park may be in her late 20s but she could easily pass as a high schooler, and she is walking the line between starlet and serious actor. Park Shin-hye is sure to meet with continued success as she transitions to more mature roles, and starring as the leading lady opposite Hyun Bin might be the role that cements her status as a mature actor.

Here are some of Park Shin-hye’s drama highlights, followed by her full filmography.
 

You’re Beautiful (2009)

This drama was the Hong Sisters at their height, and not only did it perform well ratings-wise, but it became a cult favorite. It’s easy to see why. Even though it feels like a decade ago since I watched You’re Beautiful (ummm), there are still elements from the drama that I will never forget: the giggles from Jang Geun-seok’s hilarious performance and ridiculous hairdos, the pain of the second lead syndrome, and the wonders of cohabitation dramas. It’s no secret the Hong Sisters love gender-bending romantic comedies if for nothing other than the hijinks they create. In You’re Beautiful, Park Shin-hye plays both a twin brother and sister. The sister masquerades as her brother and joins the popular band A.N.JELL, which is comprised of Jang Geun-seok, Jung Yong-hwa, and Lee Hong-ki. Her presence (in their house and band) complicated their relationships, dug into past secrets, and was a pretty entertaining ride. There were a lot of silly moments, cheekiness, and meta – my favorite of these being the scene where Jang Geun-seok was in a field having a moment of solitary pop stardom glory, only to be antagonized by a wild pig.

 
Flower Boy Next Door (2013)

This delightful drama and webtoon adaptation is my favorite Park Shin-hye role to date. Her character, a scarred and skittish shut-in editor, made use of all the things Park Shin-hye does best as an actor. She fumbled around her tiny apartment, wrapped in a million coats, and stared at the world beyond her window, too afraid to engage. Once she’s spotted boy-watching with her pair of giant yellow binoculars, things started to change. Her neighbors, played by Yoon Shi-yoon, Kim Ji-hoon, and Go Kyung-pyo, soon dragged her out of her comfort zone. Though Yoon Shi-yoon was fantastic as the cheerful “happy virus” character who helped her grow and deal with her emotional baggage, I will always harbor a pretty sore case of second lead syndrome for Kim Ji-hoon’s character, the smitten and starving artist. Though Flower Boy Next Door dulled a bit after a strong first half (like so many dramas before it), this drama will always be special to me. Park Shin-hye’s character once explained how she felt at peace in her tiny apartment littered with books and post-it notes — it’s strangely similar to the feel of the drama overall. It was cozy and comforting. You found yourself wanting to disappear for a little while into the fictional world it captured so well.

 
Pinocchio (2014)

In another great drama from the team that brought us the wonderful I Can Hear Your Voice, Pinocchio featured Park Shin-hye as the heroine that couldn’t lie (well, without hiccuping), and Lee Jong-seok as her “uncle” (in name only). Along with Kim Young-kwang and Lee Yubi, they played a team of rookie news reporters with Lee Pil-mo as their sunbae. For some reason I find every drama with Lee Jong-seok imbued with a certain quality that I can only trace back to him. Consequently, this felt more like a Lee Jong-seok drama than a Park Shin-hye drama to me. That being said, they totally worked as a couple, with a slightly bizarre backstory, who supported and complemented each other perfectly. The drama also did a nice job digging into themes around integrity (in journalism, and as an individual character quality), and that made for a well-rounded story. Like Flower Boy Next Door, this was another winter drama, and since the leads were both spokespersons for outerwear companies, the drama was like a giant walking ad for Marmot or Kolon parkas. I’m not complaining. K-drama parka PPL is probably my favorite PPL out there.

 
Memories of the Alhambra (2018)

The anticipation for this upcoming tvN drama with Park Shin-hye and Hyun Bin is sky-high. From the cast, to the on-location shoot in Spain, to the high caliber production, Memories of the Alhambra has everything going for it. Not to mention the fact that it’s written by Song Jae-jung, the writer responsible for W – Two Worlds, Nine, and Queen In-hyun’s Man (AKA, some of my favorite dramas ever). While much of the plot is under wraps, we do know that Hyun Bin’s character is a CEO who finds himself in a Spanish city with Park Shin-hye under mysterious circumstances. I love the idea of a drama with a carefully crafted and suspenseful tone (like Hundred Million Stars From the Sky), so between the cast and the writer, I am on board. While I’m not completely sold on the thought of Park Shin-hye with Hyun Bin (her pairing with Kim Rae-won in Doctors was painful), I’m hoping for magic anyway. Come swiftly, oh premiere!

  • I wanted to like this but couldn’t. Park Shin-hye + Kim Rae-won didn’t work for me as a couple and SLS = Yoon Kyun-sang (but the drama was sub-par for me for other reasons too).

I feel like Park Shin Hye is underrated as an actress. She has already starred in numerous popular dramas but have yet to have her really own drama. She’s more talented than what people perceive her to be. She has more than a decade of experience and has already worked with veteran actors without being devoured by them. I’m sure it’s time to break out of her old shell.

Flower Boy Next Door is my favorite project of hers especially in that scene where she has been fed up with Yoon Shi Yoon’s extrovertedness and told him to get out of her apartment.

Doctors could have been THAT drama but Kim Rae-won had to come in and change the script. That being said, she proved her worth there - the ability to carry a drama with both acting skills and star power. I hope she gets a female-centric drama down the route.

I’m checking out the first episode of MOA now while reading this. And I’ve not ever seen an entire drama with her in it, but she bears a certain resemblance to my cousin (which my mother pointed out to me when she saw You’re Beautiful) so I’m excited to check this one out!

The new "Actor Spotlight" series is great. But would we get "Staff Spotlight" for @missvictrix, @stroopwafel, @tccolb, and any other new DB writers I might be missing? It would be a treat for Beanies to get to know you!

I also would love to autopsy more baby mutant dramas! 😆

I have only liked her in Pinocchio, but I attributed it to the Lee Jong seok magic.
In other dramas, it is not that I hate her, it is just that I feel those dramas are bad, including the hype, hyper success of "YAB". (Sorry, beanies, please don't kill me).
My sis actually watched recently "the boy next door", and she recommended it to me... Maybe one day.
Memories of Alhambra, because I don't like HB, I will pass.

But I wish her success, I think she is ok. She only needs to find I don't know... a very good story just like IU found in My Ajusshi.

Oh, I too don't like YAB. But I have only ever seen praises and high rating for that drama. I don't know if that is a problem with me but I remember me rolling my eyes in every eps for whatever reasons I can't remember now.

I wish I could read a good critical review of the drama which is not 100% gushing and praises.
I like the PSH when she acts in good projects.

the difference really is in the times and age when you started watching the drama,

there is that phase when dramas were changing- moving from older costumes, screen quality to modern clothes, better sets, more interesting colors, better print.. so those things stick in head and when you enjoyed them (because for a lot of people it was one of the earlier kdramas they started on) the feels remain.

Like harry potter- i grew up on those and saw the era of book being released.. so the feels will always be different from someone who starts now with all books, movie, so many other material out there.. or from someone who read lord of the rings first. or someone who is too old and starting now

I agree with you that I only liked her in Pinocchio. And like you I don't hate her (I prefer her over some other actresses). I think she just feels a bit boring in all her dramas.

I did really love YAB back when it was still a fairly new drama, but tried to rewatch it recently and only got a couple episodes in before I had to stop haha. I also was not a fan of her performance in that (her idea of pretending to be a boy was to shuffle everywhere).

I am super excited to watch memories of Alhambra mostly because the writer is one of my favorites, and am fully willing to give her a chance. I really hope I wont be disappointed though because I am so looking forward to this drama.

Who is this writer?? What else has he/she written?
Now I am curious. 🤔
Sometimes the writer will give you a good story with totally wonderful dialogs that can make you like an actor more than you would in another setting. For instance, I hated UEE since precisely "you are beautiful", and really I don't think she is thaaaaat pretty... (not that it is important, but anyway, just being snob and superficial myself😂) But I watched her in Marriage contract and I loved her very much and she made me cry buckets. 😍😍😍
So, there you go... 🤗

The writer has also written W, Nine: 9 Times Time Travel, Queen In-Hyeon's Man and The Three Musketeers. All dramas I loved or really liked.

Oh, I am with you on UEE! I was neutral on her also as an actress. Didn't love or hate her but after Marriage Contract I completely changed my opinion. She was absolutely amazing in that drama. I probably went through a box of tissues in that drama because I was crying so hard. And the chemistry between her and Lee Seo-Jin was amazing, even though I couldn't even imagine them as a couple before I started the drama.

Yes, she was amazing! Marriage contract is one of the fewest melos I would watch over again, even though I know I will cry again.

The other dramas you mentioned... I haven't watched them, not even one of them, but by the way, I have heard good things about the queen's in hyeons man and it is on my list to binge on vacations.
I am still not interested in memories of Alhambra, because I don't like Hyun Bin, but at least now I know about the writer. Thanks! 😉

I liked FBND and Heirs , and I didn't like A.N.JELL (There I really didn't like main hero and wasn't touched by other group members, including Park Shin Hye only person that touched me was Uee in negative role), and in Pinocchio probably script was weak in my opinion. I didn't like plays by main heroes, both had much better performances in other dramas.

I really love PSH as an actress and also everything she does in real life out there, she's very beautiful and amazing in so many ways. She always do well in her drama and honestly she is one korean actress that always touch viewer HEART by just doing what she does. I just finished watching first episode of MOA and i really love and enjoyed it. Thanks to Netflix for that and im looking forward to watch the rest of the story. MOA fighting I'm watching all the way Washington State.

What a pleasant surprise.

PSH isn't just my favourite actor but my fave celebrity too. I love love love her. It all started when I was in my final year of high school in 2013 and somehow stumbled upon this beautiful and young looking Korean stunner. I watched her interviews, behind the scenes clips, looked at her magazine shots, all before I had seen her in a show.

Then I saw Heirs which was my first kdrama. I really enjoyed it at the time but I reckon watching it now would be painful haha. Since then I've watched You're Beautiful and Pinnochio too (been 4 years since I've watched her in a drama, Doctors was boring at batshit 😓), Miracle in Cell no.7 (best Korean movie ever), One Perfect Day and Don't Worry I'm a Ghost.

I enjoy her acting but even more than that I love her as a person. She's so kind-hearted and has helped out with various charities and even has a charity center in Manila. I love her face and natural beauty too which is pretty rare in the industry.

I watched ep 1 of MoTA and I loved it. I have never been as hyped for a show since Heirs 😂😂😂

Nice article on one of my favourite actresses! :D

Her voice annoyed me at first but I came to like her gradually. FLOWER BOY NEXT DOOR is my favourite, hands down, followed by crackstatic YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL. Shout out to HEARTSTRINGS because she played the only slightly chubby heroine (actually of normal-weight) I've seen in dramas. I liked PINOCCHIO well enough though I have no recollection of what it was about. Err...

I think she has transitioned nicely into a mature actress. I was impressed by her performance in DOCTORS, even if the drama as a whole completely and utterly bored me.

You're Beautiful was the very first drama that made me go crazy and emotionally invested. It was also the very first drama that I had to watch live - yep, up and wide awake at 3AM in the morning, looking for a drama stream online cuz I couldn't wait, I needed to see it ASAP. It didn't matter it didn't have subs. It was also the first drama that made me buy its director's cut dvd boxset and oh boy that wasn't cheap! It def opened up my love to collecting K-drama boxsets! You're beautiful was definitely the cult of 2009 and I was a hardcore cult member! LOL.

Anyways, just tiny correction - unfortunately You're Beautiful didn't do so well in the ratings. It was netizen's favourite both domestically and internationally. It topped the drama search list on naver, daum, however, it was still struggling with ratings as it competed with the giant, all-star-studded cast, Iris. I remember at that time how heartbroken I was that it was doing so bad ratings-wise. International fans (We) gathered lots of presents for the cast to say thank you for their hard work and that they don't have to feel bad for the awful ratings.

Second time I saw Park Shin Hye was in Pinocchio, where I loved her more in that drama than You're Beautiful. All I could say is, she definitely knows how to pick a drama that a lot of people would take the time to watch. I didn't see all of them, but I like her as an actor. And oh yeah she always nails her crying scenes.

As a correction, in Heart Blackened, PSY played a lawyer who defended Choi Min Sik's daughter, Lee Soo Kyung, after the latter was suspected of killing her father's fiancee, Honey Lee. I actually came away from this movie liking Lee Soo Kyung and Honey Lee more.

Re. PSY, I actually think that she had better chemistry with KWB in The Heirs than LMH. I liked PSY a lot in Pinocchio and loved her scenes with her screen mom, Jin Kyung.

Park Shin-hye is one of my favourite actresses. Actually scratch that. I can't call her a favourite because it's not like I absolutely love whatever she does. But I somehow always find myself watching her shows.

'Pinocchio' is part of my Top5 shows and PSH is as responsible for that as Jong Sook, other actors and the plot. I never even noticed her so called "wooden kisses" cuz that was what I associated kdramas in general with. Plus she was really good in Pinocchio and Doctors (however crappy that show was)...

Anyway all this to say that I have started another drama because of her and yay for writing abt her in Actor Spotlight! Thanks @missvictrix

She'll always be my queen. ❤ Love her since the YAB era. Omy. Reminiscing my college days, flipping the internet to watch the replays. It was aired on our country, dubbed. From then, I have followed her to Heartstrings, TBND, The Heirs (Idk, but I love this show so much), Pinocchio and Doctors. I even watched Miracle tho I'm staying away from heart wrenching plots. 💔 Attended her fanmeeting and even love her her after that. Even my bf was charmed buy her! 🙈

You might say I'm biased but I think she's a good actress, a very passionate one. :)

I like Park Shin Hye. She was a child actress and had to grow up with all her moves scrutined by the public. The transition had to be difficult but I liked her choices of dramas.

You’re Beautiful was good. I always love the "girl disguised as a boy" trope. I like the fact she's still friend with the members of ANJELL.

Heartstring was a good college drama and I really liked the songs.

The Heirs was nice. It was far from perfect but I liked the fact that the typical rich, genius, cold, mean boy was the second lead and not the first. I liked the second couples : Minhyuk and Krystal / Kim Ji Won and Kang Na Heul.

Pinocchio was the first drama where I could see her as an adult and a woman.

Doctors has one of the worst first kiss scene but except that, it was good.

YAB and Heirs remain in my fond memories. Not the best drama in acting or plot, but they are fun dramas that brought me back to K-drama land after a long time. And this is why I'll always have fondness for Park Shinhye.
Heartstrings and Flower Boys Next Door were good too. Pinocchio doesn't belong to my favorite genre but I think its PSH's most likable role to date; her character was so lovely. Same for Doctors; I don't like her pairing with Kim Raewon but am happy for her success. I can't wait to watch her in Memories of the Alhambra!

Can't believe im only seeing this now because this girl has my heart! i've watched nearly everything she's been and will sit through terrible shows just for her. I also hope she gets to be in a drama where she is the central character cause i know she is far more talented than what her previous roles have given her especially seeing her in doctors (still bitter about what it could have been based on the initial premise).
