Kim Beom, born July 7, 1989 with the name of Sang-beom Kim (김상범), is a famous South Korean television and movie actor. His immediate family consists of his mother, father, and one younger sister. While growing up, Kim Beom excelled in sports (played football in middle school), while also maintaining high grades. He first became interested in the entertainment world, while in high school, after attending the "Korean Film Award." Kim Beom saw up close, performers receive awards while also receiving adulation from their peers and the audience. This captivated Kim Beom and drew him into the acting world.
In the process of pursuing his acting dream, Kim Beom won the KBS sponsored "Survival Star Audition" in 2006. Later that year, Kim Beom made his acting debut in the MBC drama series "The Daring Sisters" (Balchikhan Yeojadeul). He then appeared in the MBC drama "High Kick!" (Keochimeopsi Haikik), playing a character with the same name of "Kim Beom". "High Kick!" received positive response and regularly received ratings of 20% which helped bring attention to Kim Beom.
Kim Beom then made his feature film acting debut in the 2008 romantic-comedy "Hellcats" (Ddeugeoun geotsi joa) and followed that film only a few months later with the surprise horror hit "Death Bell" (Gosa). Later in 2008, Kim Beom was casted as one of the F4 boys in the KBS drama "Boys Over Flowers" (Kkotboda Namja)." Boys Over Flowers" would go on to become a smash hit, with weekly ratings in excess of 30%. The series became so popular that Koreans quickly began using the term "꽃남 신드롬," which means literally "Flower Boys Syndrome."
With the success of "Boys Over Flowers," Kim Beom found himself in high demand and starred in the SBS drama "Dream," the 2009 film "Fly High." His most recent and triumphant success comes in the role of guardian angel Gook Soo in the jTBC drama Padam Padam... The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats. Praised by some as the drama of the century, Padam Padam gave Kim Beom a chance to spread his wings, both literally and figuratively, as a supernatural being who was somehow born to regular people, went to prison, and befriended the man he was born to save, Yang Kang-Chil. With the drama's ever-increasing global acclaim, Padam Padam is sure to give Kim Beom a new nickname: the Flower Angel.
