Park made her official acting debut alongside fellow newcomer Lee Min-ho in the 2006 high school television series Secret Campus. Among her early projects were the historical epic The King and I and the Peabody Award-winning teen drama Jungle Fish with Kim Soo-hyun, which was based on a true story about the pressures placed on students to achieve and gain admission to prestigious colleges and universities.
Park rose to prominence after co-starring with Cha Tae-hyun in the 2008 comedy Scandal Makers, which drew 8.3 million viewers and became the number one grossing film of the year. Park's performance as a spunky teenage mom was described as "excellent" by Variety, and she won Best New Actress awards in 2009.

After being named the promotional ambassador (dubbed "PiFan Lady") for the 2011 Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival, Park returned to the spotlight in 2012, starring in the horror thriller Don't Click.

In Hot Young Bloods (2014), a teen romantic comedy set in the 1980s, Park played the tough, potty-mouthed leader of her high school gang, a departure from her previous sweet, innocent characters. Park, who was born in North Chungcheong Province, said she enjoyed swearing in southern dialect, though it was difficult for her to master because it was a mix of Jeolla and Chungcheong dialects.
