Kong Hyo-Jin. born April 4, 1980 in Seoul, South Korea, is a popular actress. She first became interested in fashion design while in her teens and flew to Australia with her mother and brother to pursue that goal. She then found Australia wasn't the proper place for her to nurture those dreams and returned to South Korea. While attending school in South Korea she then started modeling and quickly expanded into acting with her debut in the 1999 horror film “Memento Mori”.
Since that time, Hyo-jin has appeared in a diverse range of roles showcasing her acting talents. In "Guns and Talks" (2001), "No Manners" (2002), and "Taekwon Girl" (2002) Hyo-jin portrayed tougher characters, while in Family Ties she portrayed a rebellious youth but with warm character, while "M" (2007) & "Happiness" (2008) revealed her sexier side with Hyo-jin portraying women who were in control. Hyo-jin more recently stepped into more divergent roles with her slapstick comedy performance in "Dachimawa Lee" (2008) and her portrayal of a social misfit in "Crush and Blush" (2008).
Her personal life has also been frequently talked about as she first dated actor Ryoo Seung-Bum following their work together in the 2001 SBS drama “Beautiful Days” (Hwaryeohan Shijeol) and the 2001 film "No Manners". The couple then broke up sometime in 2003, with rumors slowly sprouting out in the following years that the couple were back together again. In 2008, the couple officially announced that they were once again romantically involved.
