Early life and education
Yoon was born in Stuttgart, Germany, on May 7, 1993, and lived there for six years before returning to Seoul. In 2011, she enrolled as a Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering major at KAIST, one of the South Korea‘s prestigious science and research universities; she is currently on a leave of absence.
Her parents, particularly her mother, were said to be strongly against her decision to leave academia and become an actress. Yoon was first featured on Hit the S Style, a variety show which spotlights campus style icons which was aired on tvN. She then appeared in the intermission video at Super Show 5, a concert tour by Super Junior, followed by an uncredited cameo in the music video for SHINee‘s “Why So Serious?“.
In 2013, she starred in music videos by EXO in EXO Music Video Drama (in both Korean and Mandarin Chinese versions). Afterwards, Yoon made her acting debut in the period drama The Blade and Petal. She has since been cast in increasingly larger roles in television dramas such as Let’s Eat and Wild Chives and Soy Bean Soup: 12 Years Reunion.
In 2015, she was cast in her first film, Life Risking Romance.
In 2016, Yoon had a supporting role in the tvN legal melodrama Memory, and starred in the web drama Bong Soon – a Cyborg in Love alongside Super Junior’s Kyuhyun. She was then cast in the KBS mini drama The Day After We Broke Up with L (Myungsoo from Infinite), and the 3-episode miniseries Queen of the Ring as Kim Seulgi’s counterpart which is part of MBC‘s 9-episode miniseries, Three Colors of Fantasies.
