Ahn So-Hee’s Career Steps
In 2007, after two years of training, she was revealed as the third member of Wonder Girls, a girl group managed by JYP Entertainment. The group debuted with the single Irony, featuring Sohee as a dancer and vocalist in the group. The group quickly rose to stardom with their hits Tell Me, So Hot and Nobody, within two years of their debut. Sohee herself earned the title of the ‘Nation’s Little Sister’. In particular, she is known for her unique catchphrase “Omona” from the song Tell Me, which became a national craze.
In an official JYP Entertainment announcement, it was revealed that Sohee would not renew her contract with the company, thus ending her six-year membership of Wonder Girls. Her contract with the company expired on December 21, 2013. After this, So-Hee focused on her actreess career.
In 2016, Sohee starred in South Korea’s first zombie movie, Train to Busan, playing a high school student and a loyal supporter of the baseball team. The film premiered in the Midnight Screenings section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on May 13, 2016, and later surpassed 11 million tickets sold. Despite the film’s success, Sohee received criticism for her acting. Later that year, she featured in tvN’s Korean remake of the American series, Entourage, playing the love interest of Seo Kang-joon’s character.

Ahn So-Hee’s Boyfriend
The actress is not willing to expose her private life to the public, but nothing can be secret when it comes to actresses and celebrities. There is a rumor that actor Kim Soo Hyun and Ahn So-Hee have been dating for a year.
A few years ago Ahn So Hee announced that she had signed with KeyEast, the same company as Kim Soo Hyun. Most people believe that the rumor about their relationship is false.

Ahn So-Hee and Kim Soo Hyun Dating Rumors
So-Hee and Kim Soo Hyun aren’t making our couple dreams come. The two stars’ latest relationship goals were completely fabricated. After rumors began swirling online that they had been in dating for a year, their agency, KeyEast, quickly told the media the truth. “We have confirmed with [Kim Soo Hyun and Ahn So-Hee] and the news is not true. They know each other, but they are not dating,” a KeyEast rep explained.
The previous fantasy rumors stated that the former Wonder Girls member joined KeyEast because the producer/actor recommended his company. Plus, a resident in So-Hee’s Yongsan apartment complex allegedly claimed that Soo Hyun visited her place when his schedule was free. No photos ever backed up these imaginative rumors.
An agency representative stated, “The reports that the two are getting married are completely false. It is unfortunate to see this false information being published and reported on.”
They continued to add, “We clearly informed the media outlet [that reported the rumor] that the information was not true. We will be taking strong measures, including legal action, against those who are spreading false information despite this. We are currently collecting evidence through various channels.”
