The actress' first stint with fame came through via her modelling career with Estee Lauder. Her on-screen appearance that got noted was her K-drama debut in MBC's Golden Rainbow (released in 2013).

The other works that she is also well-known for include Make Your Wish (in 2014) and School 2017 (in 2017) — both dramas.

Among popular music videos that Yoo-jung was a part of was Goodbye Road that was produced by the well-known K-pop band iKON.

Yoo-jung's passing brings to attention Korean actor Cha In-ha's death in December 2019 and how it had raised concerns about the vulnerability of young stars in the Korean entertainment industry. It was especially more worrisome since it came days after K-pop singer Goo Hara was found dead at the age of 28. Fellow K-pop star Sulli had also committed suicide in October that year at the age of 25.
