  • Name: Bae Doo Na
  • Native name: 배두나
  • Also Known as: Bae Doona, Bae Du Na
  • Nationality: South Korean
  • Gender: Female
  • Born: October 11, 1979

Actress Bae Doo Na started her professional career as a fashion model in 1998. Her mother is Actress Kim Hwa Young. She moved to a high-profile role in the acclaimed South Korean TV series, School. Doo Na's first leading role in a motion picture was in the black comedy, Barkings Dog Never Cry, in which she appeared on screen without makeup. Winner of the Best New Actress Award at the 21st edition of the Blue Dragon Awards (South Korea's Golden Globe), Doo Na became critics favourite for her layered yet animated portrayal of a young woman who helps her tenant locate a lost dog.

After choosing to play a more feminine character in the 1999 release "Plum Blosson", Doo Na went on to star in the critically acclaimed "Take Care of My Cat", playing once again, a character who is independent of both family and men. With "Take Care of My Cat", Bae Doo Na won three Best Actress Awards-on at the 9th Chunsa Film & Art Film festival, another at the 38th Baek Sang Art Awards and the prestigious Korean film critics award.

In her time off, Bae took up photography, much of which can be seen on her official blog and her photo book. Bae finally stepped onto a theatre stage in 2004, for the production of "Sunday Seoul" (not to be confused with the South Korean movie of the same title). The play was co-written by Park Chan Wook, whom she had previously worked with. In 2005, Bae appeared in the Japanese film "Linda Linda Linda", and in 2006 she worked with Bong Joon Ho again on "The Host", currently the highest-grossing film in South Korean box office history.

She made her Hollywood debut after a successful audition for "Cloud Atlas" directed by the Wachowskis sisters. Although she's back in Korea in 2014 for the movie "A Girl At My Door", she was once again scouted by Wachowskis sisters and appeared in their movie "Jupiter Ascending" and web show" Sense8". The latest work she was cast in is "Stranger".

On March 3, Goodman Story Entertainment officially announced that Bae Doo Na had signed an exclusive contract with the agency.
