Ku is a well-known singer-songwriter, artist, novelist and scriptwriter who was originally set to debut with a singing career with YG Entertainment but started acting in several TV series and made a breakthrough in 2006 with a role in KBS' drama "Pure in Heart."

She rose to stardom in Korea and throughout Asia after starring in the mega-hit series "Boys Over Flowers" in 2009 and also made her directorial debut in 2008 with the short feature "The Madonna" which was invited to numerous film festivals.
She released her first feature film "Magic," about the passion and competition among young musicians in a conservatory that features various music genres including classical music, folk and Korean pop songs, which was screened at various film festivals last year including the Jeonju International Film Festival and the Jecheon International Music & Film Festival.

Ku is currently shooting an upcoming TV series named "The Musical," in which she plays a medical student who dreams of becoming a musical actress, as well as working as the director of the official trailer for the 4th annual International Women's Film Festival in Seoul in April.
