Han Hyo Joo was born in Cheongju, South Korea February 22, 1987. She was discovered as a teenager at a 2003 beauty pageant and made her acting debut in the prominent South Korean sitcom Nonstop 5. Her fame rose due to the popularity of Spring Waltz in countries outside of South Korea such as Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Singapore. Her starring role in the film Ad-Lib Night marked her as a potentially talented actress. She starred alongside Lee Seung Gi in the 2009 television drama Shining Inheritance as Go Eun Sung. The show brought about a newly risen interest in her acting and pushed her into the limelight, which led to a flood of interview requests and a devout fanbase, who nicknamed her insang-nyeo, or “girl with a good impression.” She is currently on leave from Dong Gook University and is currently slated to star in another drama entitled Heaven's Postman.
