poses for camera at the "2011 Style Icon Awards" ceremony held at CJ E&M Center in Seoul's Sangam-dong on Nov. 3, 2011.

A number of actors and actresses and other entertainers took part in the event.

Ko So-young was born on Oct. 6, 1972. She graduated from Chung-Ang University with a major in Drama & Cinema. She was known as one of South Korea's "ideal women".

Ko was born in Seoul, South Korea. She attended an all-female high school before gaining early admission to Chung-Ang University, where she studied computer science.

Ko debuted in the TV drama Love Tomorrow in 1993 and quickly established herself as a representative star of her generation. She made her film debut opposite Jeong Woo-seong in The Fox with Nine Tails in 1994, which ranked as the first Korean film ever to use computer-generated images. However, it failed to make an impression on audiences or critics.

Ko first achieved wide recognition through her role in Beat (again with Jeong Woo-seong), a film that caught the imagination of many South Korean high school students. Since then she has acted in a series of successful melodramas, portraying a young model in If the Sun Rises in the West, a Jeju Island tour guide in Love Wind, Love Song, and a Korean American adoptee in Love.

In 2001, Ko teamed up with actor Lee Seong-jae in "A Day", about a married couple who have trouble conceiving a child. Her acting in the film was much praised and garnered the Best Actress prize from the local Grand Bell Awards ceremony.

Then, after two years off, Ko returned in 2003 opposite Han Seok-Kyu in the spy thriller "Double Agent"; however, the film failed to live up to the expectations of most viewers and critics. She then shot two films in 2006: the horror film "A.P.T" by director Ahn Byeong-ki, and the romantic comedy "Go Go Sister" by debut director Kim Chang-rae.

Ko married actor Jang Dong-gun in a star-studded wedding ceremony held at Seoul's Shilla Hotel on May 2, 2010, while five months pregnant. The couple's first child, a son Jang Min-jun, was born on October 4, 2010.
