It was 1997 when So Ji-sub modeled for a jeans brand called "STORM" and first caught the attention of Korean fans. From here, he debuted as an actor in the Korean sitcom "3 Guys, 3 Girls" and joined the circle of Korean celebrities. In the following year, he remained active in the entertainment industry through dramas, movies, and commercials. Although his roles in dramas in the late 90s, such as "Model", were small, his popularity grew, and by 2002, he obtained one of the main character roles in a famous drama called "Glass Slippers".
In 2004, he was cast in two immensely popular dramas called "What Happened in Bali" and "I'm Sorry, I Love You". This really brought him to the center of the spotlight in the acting industry as he began drawing attention from not just Korea, but from all over Asia. The drama "I'm Sorry, I Love You" especially made him stand out from the crowd, and his achievements in acting was rewarded with several awards.
His career was interrupted by his mandatory service to the Korean military. By April 27, 2007, he completed his duty to the Korean military and came back to the entertainment world with a movie called "Rough Cut". In 2009, So landed the role of Lee Cho-In in the drama "Cain and Abel", which later became a big hit. In 2010 he starred in the Korean War drama Road #1 with Kim Haneul.
Aside from acting, So Ji-sub also works on the music scene, releasing his first ever music video "Pick Up Line" on February 17, 2011.
Along with Han Hyo Joo, So Ji Sub will star in Song Il Go's Only You. Production will begin March 2011 and is scheduled to premiere either summer or fall of 2011
