Making her debut in 2013 at the age of 22, Park So-dam, has grown steadily as an actress, gaining international fame with the 2019 critically-acclaimed Bong Joon-ho film Parasite. Many of you might recognise Park from the 2020 series Record of Youth too, where she starred opposite Park Bo-gum.
In the span of her eight-year career, Park has amassed many acting award nominations and wins, including multiple Best New Actress nods for her roles in The Priests (2015) and The Silenced (2015).
In December 2020, Park, like many of us, had a brush with Covid-19 when one of her staff members tested positive. She later tested negative but went into a two-week self-quarantine for added precaution.
