Song HyeKyo is a top South Korean Actress.

She is one of the most known Korean actresses overseas. The actress made her debut in 1996 by winning the grand prize at the school uniform model contest, and continues her reputation as a leading beauty actress and top star in the 2000s and 2010s.

Song HyeKyo began to draw attention from the public when she appeared in the sitcom "Sunpoong Obstetrics and Gynecology". She has since been selected as the female lead of "Autumn Fairy Tale" (2000). She got her first lead role in the drama "Autumn Fairy Tale" and it was popular with ratings over 40 percent, and it is also the original work that created the current top Hallyu actors such as Won Bin, Song HyeKyo, and Song SeungHeon.

Since then, Song HyeKyo has appeared in "Hotelier" (2001), "All In" (2003), "Full House" (2004), and "That Winter, The Wind Blows" (2013). "Full House" brought her huge popularity overseas. In "That Winter, The Wind Blows", she won her first acting award for her brilliant portrayal of the visually impaired.

In 2016, she worked with Song JoongKi for the worldwide hit drama "Descendants of the Sun". In the drama, she played Kang MoYeon, a cardiothoracic surgeon, and recorded an overwhelming audience rating of 38 percent for her sweet romance with Song JoongKi, who played Captain Yoo SiJin. It was called the top-rated drama of 2016, with favorable reviews for its high-profile and stable acting skills for the character.

A year later, in July 2017, she made a surprise announcement that she would marry actor Song JoongKi, who was four years younger than her in "Descendants of the Sun", and they married in October of the same year. After the wedding announcement, they were called the "Songsong Couple," and Korea drew attention from fans not only in China, Japan but also around the world, and became a leading Hallyu star couple, creating a lot of buzz even after their marriage. Song HyeKyo made a comeback a year after her marriage in 2018, starring in the drama "Encounter". From the first episode, she showed her potential to draw popularity to one's project.

In June 2019, an article said Song JoongKi and Song HyeKyo were currently applying for divorce mediation, and later came out that they had already been separated since September 2018. In July, the following month, they ended up getting divorced, and Song HyeKyo has not been acting since then and is active in magazines or pictorial shoots.
