dolma tso you are the one of my look so beautiful................................................. saranghye..................

Evira Shin Min-A is capable to make her partner on drama perfectly good. It's the same with those artist like: Gong Hyo Jin, Ha Ji Won, and Song Hye Kyo.

Morgane "Donald Duck"? why? O.o

jerick My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox best Drama Series i ever watch for me.. thumbs up

Feri Best of the Best

serena Shin Min Ah, you looked so gorgeous and sexy in the pic for your latest movie The X with Kang Dong Won. I look forward to watching this movie coz I believe Kang Dong Won and you are talented, a great combination.

Capricorn0Angel I love her MADELEINE, SAD MOVIE(the best!), Beast and Beauty, and My Mighty Princess. All her acting is pure, natural, and no overdo! I like her acting in Madeleine the most. Both she and jo insung were lively, make their characters alive so much. And A Love To Kill done greatly by her and Bi ^^ You're so pretty, memorable, skill-full, and amazing! Unnie HWAITING! :D

serena Shih Mn Ah shii, you look great with Lee Seung Gi in My girl friend is a gumiho. Yoi look so cute and funny and I just watched Arang and the Magistrate. I enjoyed watching your dramas. You are my favourite korean actress. Shin Min Ah shii saranghae.

ra my alltime favorite actress. Not going to lie, her acting is not flawless (still good though) but she is just so hypnotically beautiful. Every drama or movie she makes I always give it a chance and I liked the majority of them. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite.

rajyeswari ya u look toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good i have just seen your trailor and song from my girlfriend is gumiho........yapudha........

Ang She's AMAZING!!

amysamala i have seen her in beauty and the beast and right away i have been a big fan of her! i look and compiled all her movies and tv series.she's one of actresses that so simple yet gorgeous!i admire her of being down to earth.

the She has a unique face gesture that is really needed Her face shows everything in that drama I like this drama.very much my girlfriend is a gumiho

joeciel i really admire you unnie! you are so pretty ,and your beauty is unique that it could be seen naturally whenever u smile. , i enjoyed watchng my gf is a gumiho, , ! i love ur lv team with sung gi oppa, ur so perfect as a lv team, and i wanna watch it all over again and again, haha , i lv u soo much unnie!

aibatan a great actress, you are still my number one Shin Min-A .

aiba tan shin min ah you are so cute ...

KimKas Shin Min Ah *_*

I can die for her, I'd probably melt if she was just standing in front of me lol. More seriously : her natural attractiveness obviously makes it easy to like her but she does have raw talent for acting, though perhaps not always well exploited. She seems to choose her roles carefully but in her two latest dramas, My girlfriend is a Gumiho and Arang and the Magistrate, she showed some nice variances in emotion and her acting did the talking. She has the knack of having great chemistry with whoever is the male lead and that's not easy to do.

Clover you change my life

DudeFromFinland She's just so amazingly awesome everyway anyday! =)

jannine elleva I really like you in My Girlfriend is a gumiho and Arang and Magistrate. I am not really a fan of Korean films, but I really do love to watch your series. And my mom really loves you too. :)

Cousin Vinnie Everything other than the second and third words offered in the previous entry is bull$&*#!!!

LoonyLizard Sure, she's pretty, but her acting has a long way to go before it's on the level of Kim Sun-A, Choi Kang-Hee, Gong Hyo-Jin, or Han Ji-Min. She just doesn't seem to have what it takes to show true subtlety of emotion and deliver a nuanced performance. I think she needs someone in her life to be tough on her performances and expect more out of her, because she does have the potential to be so much better at her craft. It's just a matter of someone drawing that out of her. Maybe once that happens, she'll be able to land some roles that require more than a pretty face and a stunt team.

Dorfmann I was already "over the moon" for this actress when I first saw her in 'Punch' way back when. A few movies later, she enchants us all as 'Gu Mi-ho' and now as 'Arang'. "Otherwordly" would be a great discription for the way that Shin Mi-nah's warmth, beauty, cuteness, and charm immediately captivates all who become bewitched by her special spell. Those folks at that teen magazine who first looked her middle school picture must have been affected much in the same way. Lucky us! :)
