Moon Geun Young is a South Korean actress. Affectionately called "the nation's little sister", Geun Young began modeling at the age of 10, then made her acting debut in 1999 as a child actress. She first rose to stardom through her role in the hugely popular television drama series "Autumn in My Heart", followed by a well-received turn in Kim Ji Woon's critically acclaimed horror film "A Tale of Two Sisters". Geun Young solidified her star status by headlining the box-office hits "My Little Bride" in 2004 and "Innocent Steps" in 2005. In 2008, she became the youngest recipient of a Grand Prize ("Daesang") which she won for the period drama "Painter of the Wind".

Moon graduated from Gwangju Gukje High School in February 2006. In March 2006, she entered Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul to study Korean Language and Literature. Before her acting debut on a television drama series, Moon filmed several commercials and modeled for various magazines. She started modeling at the age of 12, and first appeared onscreen on the 1999 documentary drama On the Road directed by Choi Jae Eun. She won the Best Young Actress award at the 2000 KBS Drama Awards for her role, together with her co-star Choi Woo Hyuk.

Moon was diagnosed with compartment syndrome and received emergency treatments to treat her arm muscle pain.

In September 2020, it was announced that she was leaving Namoo Actors after working with them for 16 years.

On February 15, 2022 she signed exclusive contracts with Cré Company, a newly launched entertainment company. Edit Biography
