Han Hyo Joo as Seo Eun Young in Spring Waltz.

Han Hyo Joo (born February 22, 1987) is a South Korean actress and model. She made her debut in the Nonstop 5, a famous sitcom in Korea.

She joined the ranks as a prominent Pan-Asian star due to the rising popularity of Spring Waltz (the fourth and final installment of Yoon Suk-ho's season drama series - following Autumn Fairy Tale, Winter Sonata and Summer Scent) in other Asian countries, including Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore.

Recently she has been in the limelight for her accomplishments in the movies, TV drama series as well as commercials. These were recognized by the foreign press and fans from many Asian countries. In response to her numerous adoring fans, she has made a few major steps to demonstrate her talents as an aspiring actress, despite her rather short acting career.

The film called Ad-Lib night (a subtle drama by Lee Yoon-ki, follows a young single woman who rediscovers herself through an eerie overnight encounter with strangers) in which she has the starring role premiered in November, 2006. The film has been made to highlight her potential as a gifted actress, not necessarily for commercial success. To top her already busy schedule, she just has been chosen for the title role in a daily soap opera , called 'Like Land and Sky (하늘만큼 땅만큼)', on KBS in January 2007.
