On stage, she played among others in Frank Castorf’s  „North“ by Louis Ferdinand Céline or in „The Idiot“ (F. Dostoyevsky).  Directed by the Swiss Director Ueli Jäggi, she played and danced the Li-Si in „The End of the Beginning“ (Sean O’Casey) or she performed the lead role of the tour guide in „Agora“ by the Greek director Michael Marmarinos (also at the Volksbühne).

Besides being an actress, Young-Shin directs and choreographs as well. Most recently, she coreographed at the Berliner Staatsoper for the Opera „The Turn of the Screw“, her play, „Colours“ (based on Goethes theory of colours) toured in Poland by invitation of the Goethe Institute.
