Moon Geun-young (born May 6, 1987 in Gwangju, South Korea) is a South Korean actress. As of 2006, she is one of the most popular actresses in South Korea. The media has given her the nickname "Gukmin yeodongsaeng" ( the nation's little sister)
She started modeling at the age of 12, and appeared in the docu-drama On the Road (or On the Way) by Choi Jae-eun the following year. Her stardom grew in 2000 by appearing in the TV drama, Autumn Fairy Tale which was popular across Asia. Her first film was Lovers Concerto (2002), but her major breakthrough as a star was in the horror film A Tale of Two Sisters. Subsequent successes have been My Little Bride and Innocent Steps, the latter of which was a success largely owing to her popularity, as the film was critically panned.
Moon Geun-young has been a spokesperson for numerous companies and organizations. She graduated from Gwangju Kukje High School in 2006. In the same year, she entered Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul. Recently, she is reported to have earned a GPA just below 4.0 for her freshman year and so is qualified to take Korean Literature as her major. Also in 2006, she starred in Love Me Not (Sarang-ttawin piryo eopseo), a Korean big-screen remake of popular Japanese TV drama "Ai nante iranee yo, natsu". She did not miss a single class while filming the movie, though the movie did poorly.
In December of 2006, she recorded a song and a music video as a part of a promotional campaign for KTF's web music portal, Dosirak.
