Seo was born on February 27, 1985 in Dobong-gu, Seoul, as the first daughter of her parents. She attended Cheongwon Elementary School and Gugak National Middle School (Korean Traditional Music School). She was majoring in Korean dance, when she was recruited to join a girl group, so she switched to Apgujeong High School to be closer to the troupe.
Seo Hyun Jin made her debut as the lead vocalist of the K-pop girl group M.I.L.K. in 2001, under the subsidiary brand of SM Entertainment however, the group soon fell by the wayside due to fierce competition among manufactured bands, which led one of the members to leave the group before they completely disbanded in 2003. After M.I.L.K. disbanded, Seo attended Dongduk Women’s University, where she majored in applied musicology, to keep her dream of a singing career alive. As a soloist, she contributed songs to a few soundtracks and compilations by SM Town she had the opportunity to perform in her first musical, but in general it was a period of great uncertainty for her, where she reconsidered whether she should continue in the entertainment industry. She had the opportunity to perform in her first musical, The Sound of Music at that time she didn’t really know how to act and the whole experience was very difficult for her. That prompted her to take theater classes, so she began to like the profession and decided to become an actress.
Seo filmed a movie and a short drama, Dating on Earth with the group of boys TVXQ the supporting roles continued in the police series H.I.T (2007) and the queer film Ashamed (also known as Life is Peachy seo gained recognition with her more subtle performances in historical dramas, such as Hwang Jin Yi (2006) and The Duo (2011), where she played a scatterbrained girl next door who later became a gisaeng. She played her first villain in Feast of the Gods (2012), as an overly ambitious chef caught up in a rivalry. Seo was then cast in lead roles in two historical dramas, King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang (2013) and The Three Musketeers (2014). However, she said the character that most resembled her real-life personality was that of the freelance writer and food lover in Let’s Eat 2 (2015), adding that she “didn’t realize how much fun it could be to film an animated, comedic drama.” The drama was Seo’s first attempt at the romantic comedy genre, in which she earned good reviews and became the turning point of her career.Seo has also frequently appeared in projects directed by her best friend, actress Goo Hye Sun in particular the short film The Madonna and the feature film Magic in which she had her first leading role.
Her popularity grew rapidly after the hit drama Another Oh Hae-young (2016), which starred alongside Eric Mun she was praised by viewers for the wonderful way she had portrayed such a common character and was easy to identify with. Later in the same year, she starred in the SBS medical drama, Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim together with Han Suk Kyu and Yoo Yun Suk in 2017, Seo was cast as the lead in the drama Temperature of Love written by Ha Myung Hee.
