Shin Min-a (born Yang Min-a on 5 April 1984) is a South Korean actress. She is best known for starring in television dramas such as ''A Love to Kill'' and ''My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox''.
Shin Min-a began her career as a model for teen magazine KiKi in 1998, then appeared in several music videos for K-pop boyband g.o.d, until her acting debut in 2001. The newcomer quickly rose to stardom, through the high school martial arts comedy ''Volcano High'' with Jang Hyuk, and the college romance ''Madeleine'' with Jo In-sung. She took on a supporting role in Kim Jee-woon's film noir ''A Bittersweet Life'', reuniting her with previous ''Beautiful Days'' co-star Lee Byung-hun. This was followed by leading roles in the melodrama ''A Love to Kill'' with Rain, the romantic comedy ''The Beast and the Beauty'' with Ryoo Seung-bum, and the psychological thriller ''The Devil'' with Uhm Tae-woong and Ju Ji-hoon.
As Shin entered her mid-twenties, she began showcasing more maturity in her choice of roles, playing a sexy counterculture singer in ''Go Go 70s'', an unfaithful wife in ''The Naked Kitchen'', and a cynical young woman in search of her father in ''Sisters on the Road''. But Shin became best known for her portrayals of supernatural horror icons revamped into endearingly innocent yet spunky heroines in the rom-com ''My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox'' (2010), and the historical drama ''Arang and the Magistrate'' (2012).
After appearing in ''The X'', a 2013 spy thriller short film directed by Kim Jee-woon, Shin returned to the big screen in 2014 in ''Gyeongju'', an introspective arthouse romance opposite Park Hae-il.
This was followed by romantic comedy ''My Love, My Bride'', in which she and Jo Jung-suk played a newly married couple; it was a remake of the same-titled 1990 hit which starred Choi Jin-sil and Park Joong-hoon.
In 2015, Shin and So Ji-sub were cast in the romantic comedy series ''Oh My Venus'', about a couple who challenge each other to diet and lose weight.
