Eugene was born in Seoul, South Korea, but spent her childhood in Guam after moving there after elementary school. She returned to Korea with her mother and younger sister sometime in high school, and eventually graduated from Korea Kent Foreign School.

GIRL GROUP MEMBER

By way of an audition tape, Eugene was able to be part of a music group for SM Entertainment in South Korea, even though she was still in Guam. Debuting in 1997, S.E.S. became one of the biggest Korean groups of all time, having the record for biggest selling album by a female group in Korea. While in S.E.S., Eugene became known for her beauty and was part of the reason why S.E.S. had many advertising contracts. In fact, for certain print campaigns (like for Korean cosmetics company Etude), Eugene had the leading role, being the focus of the advertisements.
SOLO CAREER
After the split of S.E.S. in 2002, Kim starred in four Korean dramas: Loving YouSave The Last Dance for MeWonderful Life, and I Really, Really Like You. She also appeared in commercials and advertisements, notably for Korean cosmetics company Cathy Cat. In addition, she released two solo albums. My True Style, her first album, has sold nearly 65,000 records and had one hit ballad, "The Best". Her second album 810303 sold a disappointing 19,000 copies. Although sales were low, Eugene still had a very successful single with "Windy", mostly due to her new "sexy" image (compared to her previous girl next door image). This song was performed on all the music video programs in Korea for many months, in addition to her second single. Promotions were stopped near the end of the year.
Eugene made her theater debut in the musical adaptation of the film Innocent Steps and her film debut in Unstoppable Marriage.
After taking on the lead roles in the dramas One Mom and Three Dads and Creating Destiny, Eugene starred in the massive hit King of Baking, Kim Tak Goo.
In 2007 Eugene took over from Lee Hyori as one of the co-hosts of the KBS variety show Happy Together Friends, until the show was overhauled for a third season. After the success of her previous programEugene’s Makeup Diary, cable style network O'live again chose her as the host of new show Get It Beauty which began airing in July 2010.
Eugene has authored two books: Eugene's Beauty Secrets and Eugene's Get It Beauty.
She is co-president of the clothing brand byMOMO.

MARRIAGE
On May 11, 2011, Eugene announced on her fansite that after a year and a half of dating, she was getting married to Ki Tae-young, her leading man in 2009's Creating Destiny. The couple later held a joint press conference to discuss further details about their relationship and wedding plans. The couple released their prenup pictorial a week before the wedding. The couple married in a private wedding ceremony at the Seoul Central Church in Anyang, Gyeonggi-do, on July 23, 2011. Eugene's dress was designed by renowned Filipino-French designer, Monique Lhuillier.
