I’m talking about Song Hye Kyo’s first hit drama with the sitcom Soonpoong Clinic back in 1998 which is where she got her legit first start, the series ran for nearly two years and Song Hye Kyo played the youngest maknae out of four daughters to a OB/GYN father. Korean fans noticed that in 2017 the two most famous of the Soonpoong Oh family daughters got/will get married – Kim So Yeon who played the third daughter tied the knot earlier this summer and now her onscreen little sister played by Song Hye Kyo is walking down the aisle in October.
