Can’t get enough of the doe-eyed beauty in recently concluded K-drama Sisyphus? Here are five more of her films and dramas to watch

Just finished watching the last episode of Netflix sci-fi thriller Sisyphus: The Myth, and currently trying to fill a Park Shin-hye-shaped hole in your life?

You’ll be glad to know that the 31-year-old Hallyu star has an impressive filmography built up over almost 20 years, which means there’s a lot of Park Shin-hye out there to catch up on. Where to start? Here are five of our favourite films and dramas that feature the actress.

The Heirs, 2013

A K-drama classic starring Park Shin-hye, Lee Min-ho and Kim Woo-bin, this massive hit made stars of all its lead cast, and is considered essential K-drama viewing. The story of the poor girl (Park) who catches the eye of the filthy-rich heir to a huge business conglomerate (Lee) is so dramatic and swoon-worthy, you have to watch it to believe it. The Cinderella storyline and Park Shin-hye and Lee Min-ho’s chemistry make this a must-watch for newer fans of the actress.

Memories of the Alhambra, 2018

This sci-fi epic has a lot of things going for it, among them Hyun Bin, beautiful filming locations in Spain and Europe, and the theme of augmented reality. Sure, the plot may be a little confusing, but what’s a good sci-fi K-drama without a large dose of suspension of disbelief and a convoluted storyline? Sit back, ogle the gorgeous leads and enjoy the ride.

#3: Pinocchio, 2014

Park Shin-hye and Lee Jong-suk’s onscreen chemistry was so good in this drama that rumours of them being romantically involved in real life were swirling. She plays a reporter with “Pinocchio syndrome”, which means she can’t lie without hiccuping violently. Funny and romantic, with a bit of a revenge storyline thrown in.

The Doctors, 2016

Her turn as a delinquent student turned caring medical professional resonated with audiences, and The Doctors cemented Park Shin-hye’s status as a charismatic actress who can helm hit dramas. Worth watching for her take on the strong-willed character and romantic scenes with Kim Rae-won.

#Alive, 2020

For something a little more recent, try this Netflix zombie-apocalypse film, which stars Park Shin-hye as a survivor who’s pretty handy with an axe. Especially for those who miss her action scenes in Sisyphus, there’s some serious butt-kicking and zombie-whacking here.
