About Hwang Jung-eum

Hwang Jung-eum is a force to be reckoned with in the South Korean entertainment industry. Born on January 25, 1985, in Seoul, Hwang began her career as a member of the girl group Sugar in 2002. After the group disbanded in 2006, she transitioned to acting and quickly became one of the most sought-after actresses in the country.

Hwang's breakthrough role came in the 2009 drama "High Kick Through the Roof," which earned her a Best New Actress award at the MBC Drama Awards. She went on to star in a string of successful dramas, including "Giant," "Can You Hear My Heart," and "Kill Me, Heal Me."

In addition to her acting career, Hwang has also released several albums as a solo artist. Her debut album, "My Heart," was released in 2007, and she has since released two more albums and several singles.

Despite her success, Hwang has faced her fair share of challenges. In 2015, she underwent surgery for a herniated disc in her neck, which forced her to take a break from acting and singing. However, she made a triumphant return in 2016 with the hit drama "Lucky Romance."

Hwang's talent and hard work have earned her numerous accolades, including multiple Best Actress awards at the KBS Drama Awards and the SBS Drama Awards. She is also a beloved figure in South Korea, known for her down-to-earth personality and infectious energy.

As Hwang continues to dominate the entertainment industry, it's clear that she is a true icon of South Korean culture.
