Ku Hye-sun entered the entertainment industry after gaining popularity on the Internet as an ulzzang. She used to be a trainee under SM Entertainment, before switching over to DSP Media and preparing to debut in a girl group called Ria. But after it didn’t work out she then signed under YG Entertainment. Originally set to debut as a singer (supposedly in a three-member girl group with 2NE1’s Park Bom and Sandara Park), YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun-suk advised Ku to pursue acting rather than music. She made her debut in a CF for Sambo computers and then made her television debut in the KBS horror series Anagram, and continued to appear in one-act dramas. Her performance as Hye-jin in the 2004 MBC sitcom Nonstop 5 attracted the audience’s attention.
In recent years, Ku has displayed her vocal talents through soundtrack releases as well as digital singles. In 2005, she released her first single “Happy Birthday to You” for Nonstop 5. In 2006, she released the track “Sarang Ga” (“Love Story”), which became the title song of Pure in Heart. In 2012, Ku released her first self-composed soundtrack, titled “Fly Again” for SBS’s Take Care of Us, Captain, which she stars in.
In 2015, she released a second album titled Breath 2, which serves as a follow up to her 2009 album Breath. The title track “After 10 Years 100 Years” is a remake of the OST from the film The Peach Tree. Ku held her first concert the same year.
In 2016, Ku released the song “Written and Erased”, which is a collaboration song of Ku with The Blind. On April 28, she released her first regular album And Spring that consist of 11 tracks including her singles “Stupid”, “Brown Hair”, and “It’s You.

The Madonna also won the “Spotlight Award” at the 12th Short Shorts Film Festival which was held in Tokyo from June 10 through 20, 2010. She shared that the reason of herself making film was “It’s not like I dreamed of becoming a filmmaker since I was young. I’m interested in many things, including music, art and literature, and I thought I could incorporate all those things by making a film.
