Kim began her career in entertainment as a model and in television commercials. She rose to stardom via her portrayal of the evil stepsister in the popular SBS TV series Stairway to Heaven. Her other TV projects include the supernatural KBS series Forbidden Love and the SBS campus romance Love Story in Harvard. Both series were successful. For her performance in Forbidden Love, she was honored with the Best Female Newcomer award.
Kim then turned to film, starring in The Restless and the romantic comedy Venus and Mars.
In 2009 she returned to the small screen in the action thriller drama Iris with Lee Byung-hun. It was one of the most expensive dramas ever produced and was a critical and commercial success with an average rating of 30%. It was the top rated program every week after its debut. She also played a horse jockey who dreams of winning the Grand Prix championship in the film Grand Prix.
After the success of Iris, she played the lead in the MBC romantic comedy My Princess alongside Song Seung-heon. My Princess began airing on January 5, 2011. Her character was Lee Seol, an ordinary college student who discovers that she is a princess.
In late 2011, she starred in her first Japanese drama Boku to Star no 99 Nichi as Han Yuna, a big South Korean star. One day she happens to run into an ordinary, and pretty boring, 40-year-old man who somehow makes her fall head over heels in love with him.
