Song Hye-Kyo, a South Korean actress, was born on November 22, 1981. Since she was born ill, her parents thought that she might not survive so they didn’t register her birth until February 26, 1982 when she started to recover. Even though Hye-Kyo suffered with illness in her childhood, she nudged away all the constraints that held on to her and grew up to be a talented and bright girl.
Her entertainment industry debut occurred in 1996 when she won a school uniform modeling contest. Having been discovered due to her charm and skills she was cast in various dramas and sitcoms, including “Merry Morning,” “First Love,” “Wedding Dress,” “Jjack,” “Dalkomhan Sibu,” “Six Siblings,” “One of a Pair,” “Marching,” and “Deadly Eyes.” Though success didn’t come to her after some acting gigs she didn’t give up and continued on her endeavor only to get critically acclaimed for her role in the KBS drama “Autumn in My Heart”. Thereafter, she got famous for her awards received by KBS for popularity and her photogenic qualities and a Baeksang Arts award for popularity. Stardom followed her when she was awarded for excellence as an actress and the Top 10 Stars award for her performance in the drama “All In” alongside actor Lee Byung-Hun. Soon after her revolutionary act in the two aforementioned dramas she was considered as one of Korea’s “sweethearts” and found fame in Korea’s neighboring countries as well as Europe.
