15 YEARS OF KIM SOO HYUN
The handsome man's name is Kim Soo Hyun (KSH). KSH is now one of the hottest heartthrob oozing the Hallyu entertainment industry. He is also the highest-paid actor in Hallyu entertainment now. Last Saturday, the 23rd of July, KSH celebrated his 15th anniversary as a celebrity. The hunky actor made his television debut at 19 in a 2007 family sitcom called Kimchi Cheese Smile. A year after Kimchi Cheese Smile, KSH landed a lead role in KBS's critically acclaimed youth drama, Jungle Fish. The drama received a lot of good critiques and won many awards.
After his success with Jungle Fish, KSH appeared in a food-based variety show called Delicious Quiz (a.k.a Food Of Life). He was one of the show's hosts. Besides Delicious Quiz, KSH also appeared in some short films such as Cherry Blossom and Worst Friends.
In 2011, KSH landed a lead role, making him a Hallyu and international heartthrob. He was cast as Song Sam Dong in a South Korean high school drama, Dream High. His character in Dream High was very lovable. His acting in the drama was so promising. And his chemistry with Bae Suzy was so dazzling. Dream High was a success in South Korea and overseas. The drama made KSH became very popular in South Korea and internationally. The drama also promotes KSH's versatility as an artist. This hunky actor can also sing and dance. He sang some of the songs in Dream High OST. He has a voice of an angel. And KSH won the Best New Actor, Popularity Actor, and Best Couple (with Bae Suzy) awards at the 2011 KBS Drama Awards for Dream High. He also won the Best New Actor and Popularity Actor awards at the 2011 Korean Drama Awards for Dream High.
After Dream High, KSH also acted in The Moon Embracing The Sun (2012 TV drama), The Thieves (2012 film), Secretly Greatly (2013 film), My Love From The Stars (2014 TV drama), The Producers (2015 TV drama), Real (2017 film), It's Ok Not To Be Ok (2020 TV drama), and One Ordinary Day (2021 TV drama). These dramas and films were a big hit. KSH also won awards for these dramas and films.
FYI, this post is a celebration of KSH's 15th anniversary. So I would like to share with you all about KSH as an actor, commercial film king, role model, and heartthrob. Now let's check it out...
#1 KIM SOO HYUN AS AN ACTOR
Besides being the highest-paid and award-winning actor in Hallyu entertainment, KSH is also known as a very versatile actor. He is very talented and can channel different kinds of roles. He is also very charismatic and has his own X-Factor that makes people attracted to him. And another impressive fact about KSH is that he is a lefty. Yeah, he's left-handed, guys. But in some of his dramas, KSH had to act as a character who writes using his right hand (especially in My Love From The Stars). So he made an effort to train his non-dominant hand. Now, this gorgeous and talented actor can use his both hands to write and do work comfortably. Wow! That's awesome and impressive ^_^ Besides his acting talent, charisma, and X-Factor, KSH is also loved by filmmakers and fellow actors for his hard work, politeness, and down-to-earth personality. He's a sweetheart ^_^
#2 KIM SOO HYUN AS A COMMERCIAL FILM KING
KSH's popularity, charisma, and perfect visuals make him one of the commercial film kings in Hallyu alongside Park Seo Joon, Ji Chang Wook, Hyun Bin, and Lee Jong Suk. He's one of the male celebrities with several product endorsements and has been the face of a variety of products ranging from food, fashion, cosmetics, electronics, telecoms to automobiles, and more. Two of his most popular endorsements now are Tommy Hilfiger and Mido Watch.
#3 KIM SOO HYUN AS A ROLE MODEL
Besides his acting talent, charisma, and good looks, KSH is also known for his hard work, down-to-earth personality, generosity, and healthy alpha male image. These qualities make a lot of young boys in Asia look up to KSH as a role model. I believe he is a good role model indeed. And before KSH became an actor, his life was not that sweet. He grew up in a poor family. His father left him, his mother, and his siblings when he was still a child. But his past did not bring him down. Instead, it motivated him to become the person he is now. And that's why every young man needs to have KSH as their role model.
#4 KIM SOO HYUN AS A HEARTTHROB
All the qualities that KSH has also make him a heartthrob. There are a lot of girls named KSH as their ideal type, including me ^_^. Yep, he's one of my man-crush besides, Remy Hii. He's the kind of guy I would date, have coffee with, and even marry. Hehehe ^_^ I have a high taste. Besides young girls naming him as their ideal type, old ladies also named him as their dream son-in-law. KSH is such a sweetheart. Nobody can resist him. Hehehe ^_^
Ok, so this is all I want to share in today's post. As a big fan of Kim Soo Hyun, I wish him a very Happy Anniversary and all the best for the future. I hope Kim Soo Hyun will be more successful in the future. And I wish to see Kim Soo Hyun make his debut in Hollywood. After all, there are already some rumors that international filmmakers are interested to cast him in their projects. Oh wow!!! I can't hardly wait ^_^
