Soo Jung made her debut in 1998 as a cover model for teen magazines. She then moved onto acting and debuted in the teen drama School 4, but it was Kim Jee-woon’s 2003 stylish horror A Tale of Two Sisters that first drew her critical notice and newcomer awards
A year later, the hit KBS2 drama series I’m Sorry, I Love You catapulted her into stardom. With Im looking much younger than her age, those projects solidified her image as an eternal ingenue, as did touching character study …ing, horse jockey film Lump Sugar, and Park Chan-wook’s surrealist I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK.
In recent years she began shedding that image by taking on more adult roles, notable among them Hur Jin-ho’s romantic melodrama Happiness, Choi Dong-hoon’s blockbuster fantasy Jeon Woo-chi: The Taoist Wizard, romantic comedy Finding Mr. Destiny, and Lee Yoon-ki’s minimalist breakup indie Come Rain, Come Shine. For her performance in All About My Wife, she won Best Actress at the Blue Dragon Film Awards and the Women in Film Korea Awards.
Im starred in Perfect Proposal in 2015, a remake of British crime thriller Woman of Straw that was partly shot in Macau. She next starred in Time Renegades, a time-hopping romantic thriller where she played dual roles.
In February 2017, Im has cast in the drama Chicago Typewriter alongside Yoo Ah-in. This marks Im’s small screen come back after thirteen years since 2004. The same year, she was named the cultural ambassador for the UK-Korea Creative Futures mutual exchange.
She then returned to the big screen with Mothers based on the book Your Request – My Other Mother by Lee Dong-Eun, who also directs the film.
Im is set to return to the small screen with fantasy drama Search: WWW in 2019.
Im Soo Jung is rumored to have a special relationship with the famous actor, Gong Yoo. In fact, Im Soo Jung and Gong Yoo are rumored to be secretly married, but Soo Jung and Gong Yoo deny those rumors and declare that they are only good friends
