She has consistently played roles that have a good image. She was also loved by the public for her work in Golden Time, in 2012 and Miss Korea, in 2013. In 2017, she appeared in the MBC daily drama Return of Lucky Pot, challenging herself to play a villain role. As a result, she won the Excellence Prize for MBC Drama Award.


Song Sun-mi married her late husband, Go Woo-seok, in 2007. They first met through mutual acquaintances and dated for a year before their wedding. After many years together, the couple gave birth to a daughter in April 2015. On August 21st, 2017, at 11:40 am, Go Woo-seok was found stabbed in Seocho district and passed away while en route to Seoul’s St. Mary’s Hospital. According to her agency, her late husband was helping his grandfather to file a civil and criminal suit regarding illegal relocation of his grandfather’s fortune. Four days prior the incident the killer contacted the deceased, claimed himself as an acquaintance of the opposing party in the lawsuit and asked for a large sum of money in exchange of the information about the law suit. At first, the killer confessed that Song Sun-mi’s late husband promised to pay him 1 billion Won if he handed over information about the lawsuit, but in the end the deceased only gave him 10 million Won, and he killed the deceased in a fit of rage.

Following further investigation, it was found that the killer had been paid by the deceased’s cousin, who had forged documents to make it look as if he had inherited a 68 billion won piece of real estate from his rich grandfather. The grandfather found out and asked Song Sun-mi’s late husband to file a lawsuit for him. The cousin asked the killer to pretend that he has information regarding the lawsuit and ordered him to kill the deceased in exchange of 2 billion Won. He also promised to take care of the killer’s family and to send him to the Philippines to lie low. So dramatic!
