Shin Min Ah – the beautiful and talented “Gumiho” of the Korean screen
In 1998, Shin Min Ah entered the entertainment industry as a model for Kiki magazine. With a gorgeous and innocent look, she quickly attracted the attention of the public and became the representative model of many brands.
Shin Min Ah used to be the “muse” in the MVs of g.o.d, one the most popular boy bands in the early 2000s. The gorgeous actress was also chosen as the first Asian model for the promotional campaign DIY Project of American clothing brand Rag & bone which was published in The New York Times.
2001 marked a turning point in Shin Min Ah’s career when she officially pursued the acting path with a supporting role in the drama “Beautiful Days”. She left many impressions with the portrayal of her character and since then received many offers to star in many other projects such as Punch (2003), A Love to Kill (2005) or The Beast and the Beauty (2005).
However, it was not until 2010, when taking on the lead role of the nine-tailed fox Gumiho in the drama My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, that the actress really blew up. The drama not only gave Shin Min Ah the chance to prove her talent, but also helped her gain a strong fan base and become an A-list actress of the Korean entertainment industry.
In September 2021, she made a comeback after a hiatus with the series Hometown ChaChaCha that is currently going viral. With their abilities to showcase different emotions, Shin Min Ah and her co-star Kim Seon Ho have been receiving many compliments for their acting performances. Moreover, although the drama has been released for not long, Hometown ChaChaCha already gets a positive reaction from the audience and high viewership ratings.
Shin Min Ah and beautiful love with Kim Woo Bin
Besides the career, the love story of the couple Shin Min Ah – Kim Woo Bin is greatly admired by the public. It is known that the two first met at a photoshoot for a fashion brand and began to have feelings for each other. In 2015, they publicly dated.
However, this love story of the couple also encountered many difficulties since, in 2017, Kim Woo Bin announced that he temporarily suspended activities to treat throat cancer. During that time, the actress born in 1984 canceled major projects in her career to take care of her boyfriend. The couple is a testament to the beautiful love in the entertainment industry.
Especially recently, it was reported that Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah will hold a wedding ceremony in 2021. Hopefully, this couple’s wedding will take place in the not too distant future.
