Born October 11, 1979, Seoul, South Korea - South Korean actress, model and photographer.
Since childhood, she visited theaters and auditions with her mother, Kim Hwayoung, a renowned stage actress, memorizing dialogue phrases as she went. But it cannot be said that this brought Pae closer to the acting profession.
Bae graduated from Hanyang University in 1998, after which she was spotted on the street by a modeling agency. She advertised clothes from COOLDOG and other companies. In 1999, she switched to acting, making her debut in the KBS drama School. In the same year, she played the role of Park Eun Seo in The Ring: Virus, a Korean remake of the famous Japanese film. Also in 1999, Bae received her first award, Most Popular Actress, from KBS.
In 2000, director Bong Joon Ho cast her in the role of Hyun Nam in Barking Dogs Never Bite due to her agreement to play in the film without makeup, which other actresses refused to do. This was followed by other successful roles: in the 2001 film Look after My Cat directed by Jung Jae Eun and in the 2002 film Sympathy for Mr. Revenge, directed by Park Chan Wook.
2003 was not a very generous year for Bae as both her films Metro and Do You Love Spring Bears? failed at the box office. After filming the latter, Bae decided to take a break from her acting career.
During a hiatus from her acting career, Pae took up photography. Many of her work can be seen on her official blog and published photo books. Bae finally stepped onto the stage in 2004 when she took part in a production of "Sunday Seoul," co-sponsored by Park Chang Wook, with whom she had worked before.
In 2005, Bae starred in the Japanese film Linda Linda Linda, becoming the first Korean actress to star in a Japanese film. In 2006, she again co-starred with director Pong Joon Ho in The Invasion of the Dinosaur, which became the highest-grossing film in South Korean cinema history.
Her next project was Hirokazu Koreeda's Inflatable Doll. Here she plays the role of a doll for entertainment, which one day comes to life and begins to learn about the world around her. In 2012, the actress starred in the science fiction film Cloud Atlas, directed by Tom Tykwer, Lilly and Lana Wachowski.
