Kim Woo-bin is an actor as well as a model, who was born in South Korea. He was born to a middle-class family and it is believed that he grew up with his mother after his father was absent to take control of the family. He has a sister and from a young age, had been working to take care of his family. Although his educational history is not known to us, he is believed to have completed his basic college-level education. A very popular model from his young days, he says he didn’t believe he could become an actor nor thought about becoming one. He is a South Korean by nationality and belongs to white ethnicity.

Although he wanted to become a model from his school level, he wasn’t in a very suitable position to change his career. But after graduating from high school, he gave a shot at it and was recruited by the modeling agency, and so he started training there.

As a runaway model, he started to model professionally from 2009, when he was about 20 years old. He became much known after he had appeared in the Seoul Fashion Week. From modeling, he got some roles in TV advertisement or other special appearances. He had a little background of acting from his school’s theatre group. He also trained under acting coach, Moon Won-Joo who is regarded as a good coach around Seoul.

Taking acting lessons developed the amateur actor inside him and he started to love acting more than he loved modeling. It was his acting coach who gave Kim his first ever major acting role in 2011 after he was cast in a TV show named White Christmas, which was sort of a mystery drama.

That same year, he also appeared in a comedy-drama named Vampire Idol. Impressed by his work, Moon was delighted and publicly said he was happy that he gave Kim a chance to prove his worth. A year later, Kim also appeared in a comedy TV film A Gentleman's Dignity and also in the To the Beautiful You.

With a couple of notable appearances in 2012, 2013 was a landmark year in Kim’s career. He appeared that year in a teen drama named School 2013. Alongside that, he was cast in the TV drama named The Heirs and soon got offers to play in other TV films.

Despite his busy schedule, he managed to pull out time for a role in the movie Friend: The Great Legacy whose first part was a big success already in 2001. An action-packed film, Kim was so excited when his name had been called out for this film. He worked out some fight moves and also gained some 9 kg for the role that he had to portray.

A handsome man with good height, Kim has enjoyed much success.
