Kim So Eun started her acting career with the movie Two Guys in 2004 and the drama series Sisters of the Sea in 2005, both of which had her playing minor roles.
Her prominence rose four years later when she starred in the hit drama series Boys Over Flowers alongside fellow actor Kim Bum.
Another hit drama series she participated in was Happiness in the Wind, which was broadcast in 2010. Even though she did not play the lead role, her performance never ceased to amaze viewers.
In 2012, she expanded her career in China by joining the cast of the Chinese drama series Secret Angel. Four years later, she appeared in another Chinese drama series called Thumping Spike 2.
Besides acting, she also had a knack for composing songs. Once, in 2012, she collaborated with Lee Jun Ho from the boy group 2PM to write a song titled Love is Sad.
She could also be seen modeling for several music videos such as Spring Expectation (2013) by The Position, First Love’s Melody (2012) by Acoustic Collabo, and Bodyguard (2009) by SHINee.
