Kim Ha-Neul is a famous model & actress. Her given name "Ha-neul" means sky in Korean. Ha-neul's immediate family consists of her mother, father, and one younger brother. She first started her career as model for the clothing company STORM and then caught the eyes of many by appearing in the music video for "To Heaven" by Jo Seong-mo (조성모).
Ha-neul's acting career began in earnest with her 1998 performance, opposite Ji-tae Yu, in the troubled youth film "Bye June". The following year she would appear in her first television drama "Happy Together" on SBS. By the time of her performance in the 2000 romance film "Ditto" and her performance in the 2001 SBS drama "Piano," Ha-neul had formed the image of a pure, fragile young woman. Since that time, Ha-neul moved away from that image by first taking on more comedic roles in 2003's "My Tutor Friend" and 2004's "Too Beautiful to Lie" - both of which were box-office hits. During the next couple of years Ha-neul met more muted results with a succession of films that did not achieve a similar level of success. In 2008, Ha-neul had another hit with the SBS drama series "On Air" which brought a behind the scenes look into the world of television production. Ha-neul then made another bold move by starring in her first action-comedy film "My Girlfriend is an Agent" in 2009. As of June 16th, 2009 "My Girlfriend is an Agent" has sold over 4 million tickets in South Korea and became the biggest hit yet for the talented actress.
