Early life and education
Kim was raised an only child in Seoul by his father who is a theatre actor, and his mother who is worked as a cashier at a local supermarket. Kim became interested in acting at a very early age but was urged by his parents to focus on obtaining a college degree, so that he could earn a lot of money.
Things changed for Kim when he was noticed by a modelling scout at the age of 16, while still attending high school. With his parents’ permission, he began modelling and has been doing it to this day.
