Park began his career in his debut film "Yuri" in 1996 and has starred in various movies such as "The Promise" (1998), "Let's Play, Dharma" (2001) and "The Big Swindle" (2004).
Kim has appeared in various TV series and movies since making her debut in 2004, including KBS' drama "Accidental Couple" and in the film "200 Pounds Beauty."
She was recently cast as the female lead in the 20 billion won U.S.-China joint production of the sports adventure film "Amazing."
