 Song Hye kyo's Career

This led to her being cast in a small role in her first television drama ,First Love. She would continue to appear in a string of various dramas and sitcoms , notablySoonpoong Clinic. But it wasn't until the KBS dramaAutumn in My Heartin 2000 with Song Seung-heon and Won Bin that she rose to fame in Korea and throughout Asia.

In 2003, her popularity continued to climb when she played a leading role alongside Lee Byung-hun in the gambling dramaAll In. The following year, she co-starred with singer Rain in the hit romantic comedy seriesFull House.

(a Korean remake ofCrying Out Love in the Center of the World), which was panned by audiences and critics alike. Vocal about her dissatisfaction with typecasting in the roles she was being offered, Song went on a two-year hiatus.She went to San Francisco to study English , and later traveled to Seattle . "I have had a good rest. It was a good opportunity to reflect on myself," Song said.

Make Yourself at Home(formerly titledFetish), a psychological thriller about a girl who was born to a shaman mother and tries to flee her fate by becoming an immigrant bride in the U.S.Despite Song's attempts to challenge herself, both films underwhelmed at the box office.

), a series set at a broadcast station in which Song and Hyun Bin played drama PDs who work together and fall in love.

, an omnibus pic made up of three short films directed by three Asian directors. Each episode is set in the past, present and future of the city of Busan . In the film's final segmentLove for Sale, Song and Kang Dong-won played former lovers who forget their memories about each other which later leads them to a fatal destiny.

It's Time for Hye-kyo.

She later admitted there had been "a bit of friction and misunderstanding" with Wong while filming, but that the difficulties helped her mature.

The Crossingis based on the true story of theTaipingsteamer collision and follows six characters and their intertwining love stories in Taiwan and Shanghai during the 1930s; Song played the daughter of a wealthy banker.

The drama reestablished Song as a leader of the Hallyu and she topped popularity polls in Asia and was noted for her immense brand recognition in South Korea.

 Song Hye kyo's Personal life

. Their relationship and subsequent break-up in 2004 generated much media attention and gossip. The experience taught her to draw a clear line between private and public life, saying in a 2008 interview with The Dong-a Ilbo , "The viewers suddenly learned, while in the midst of watching a drama I was acting in, that I was somebody’s girlfriend. In the end, this was an obstacle and only served to create a sense of dislike among viewers."

But unlike her previous relationship with Lee, Song and Hyun were rarely seen in public together and refused to discuss their relationship with the press. In March 2011 mere hours after Hyun's military enlistment , his and Song's agencies confirmed speculation that the couple had broken up. According to the joint press release, "Both have been very busy shooting films and dramas both in and out of Korea, which inevitably caused them to grow apart." With rumors of their separation circulating since late 2010, the agencies said the two split up in early 2011 but wanted to keep it secret for the time being "because neither of them wanted the public attention to be directed on their split instead of their professional work. Hyun also did not want a personal issue to interfere with his last days with his fans before starting his military service."
