Kang Hye-jung (born January 4, 1982) is a South Korean actress. Kang first gained acting recognition for her role in the arthouse film Nabi (2001), then two years later, she shot to stardom in 2003 through Park Chan-wook's revenge thriller Oldboy. She continued giving risky performances in the next several years which drew further critical acclaim, notably in Han Jae-rim's relationship drama Rules of Dating (2005), and Park Kwang-hyun's Korean War comedy Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005). In recent years, Kang has starred in more conventional melodramas such as Herb (2007) and Girlfriends (2009), which have been less successful with audiences and critics.


She dated Love Phobia costar Jo Seung-woo for three years; the high-profile couple broke up in 2007.

On October 26, 2009, Kang married Tablo of hip-hop group Epik High while she was three months pregnant. The couple's first child, a daughter named Haru, was born on May 2, 2010.
