Shin Eun-kyung (b. February 15, 1973) made her television debut in 1986 on KBS TV. Throughout the late eighties and early nineties she acted in a great number of TV dramas and films, garnering fame for her warm screen presence. In 1997, however, she took on her most daring role as a prostitute in veteran director Im Kwon-taek's Downfallen. The film was a box-office success, leading her to star status. In 1999 she starred in two films, including the Korean-Japanese coproduction of The Ring Virus, based on the novel by Suzuki Kozi. Her success in this role led to her being cast in a small role for a Japanese film, Uzumaki, directed by a man who calls himself Mr. Higuchinsky. Around this time Shin was also working as an MC for a television game show. In 2002 Shin starred in her most famous role as a female gang boss in My Wife is a Gangster. The film drew more than 5 million spectators and became a strong hit throughout Asia. This would eventually lead to the far-less successful sequel My Wife Is a Gangster 2, in which her character gets hit in the head, suffers from amnesia, and gets a job in a Chinese restaurant. Other roles Shin starred in around this time were as a detective in Out of Justice, as a "couple manager" in the romantic comedy A Perfect Match, and as a naval officer in the box office bomb Blue. Shin was married in 2004 and subsequently had a baby. She returned to acting in 2005, and is currently scheduled to appear in three upcoming films.
