Im Soo Hyang is living proof that street casting can lead to the discovery of K-drama's next big thing. During a magazine interview, she revealed that it's been more than 10 years since she was discovered on the streets (a week before leaving South Korea to study!). Soo Hyang landed her first big-screen gig in the 2009 thriller 4th Period Mystery (starring Yoo Seung Ho and Kang So Ra). This was followed by a breakthrough role in the 2011 series New Tales Of Gisaeng, which won her a string of awards and nominations as a newbie actress.

More supporting roles followed until her popularity skyrocketed after she was cast alongside Cha Eun Woo in the rom-com series My ID Is Gangnam Beauty. It was as if the universe orchestrated her path towards acting. Though she tried finding other jobs that were less stressful and overwhelming, she confessed that she couldn't find anything else that made her happier. She has played a variety of roles through the years, with each one sharpening her acting chops.
