Let’s see character of Kim Bum from his debut to now

K-Star’s Best Character: From an Attractive Boy to a Villain, Kim Bum Keeps on Challenging Himself

Kim Bum debuted as an immature border within the MBC sitcom Unstoppable High Kick in 2006. His role had a nickname “Ha Sook Bum” because he frequented his ally Min Ho and Yoon Ho’s home since he was young. Did he instinctively feel it in his bones that it wasn’t enough for him to remain as someone’s friend? When he received the script, he embellished his character more detailedly. He even actively discussed his thoughts with the assembly team, enriching the role. That’s why he once said in an interview that Unstoppable High Kick could be a work that “started the habit he still has got to at the moment.”

In 2008, Kim Bum played So Yi Jung, the second son of a prestigious artist, in Boys Over Flowers, a TV series that supported the identical name. Even from the casting process, who is playing F4 was the most popular topic. Kim Bum, who liked the first “Sojiro” character since his school days, strongly appealed his affection for the role within the audition and won the part. So Yi Jung could be a versatile artist and a typical handsome high schoolboy. Through this project, the actor gained immense popularity in Asian countries, including Japan and China.

Afterward, he starred in JTBC’s Padam Padam (2011) as Lee Guk Soo, who strongly believes that he’s someone else’s angel. He then met with viewers as Park Jin Sung, who always gets fixed in accidents but protects his sworn brother at the slightest degree cost, in SBS’s That Winter, The Wind Blows (2013). By working with Jung Woo Sung and Jo In Sung in each of those projects, Kim Bum established himself as a “go-to actor.”

The actor challenged his first villain role in SBS’s Mrs. Cop 2 (2016). By playing Lee Ro Joon, who has both wealth and lead within the private loan industry, he expressed his ambition to indicate “the fatal charm of the devil.” From pouring out his anger after losing his temper to the insanity of somebody who has never received his parents’ approval, Kim Bum digested the role flawlessly. After a four-year hiatus, he took on the role of Lee Rang in tvN’s Tale of the Nine-Tailed (2020) that aired last year. With this series, Kim Bum successfully attained a distinct quiet villain role from Mrs. Cop 2. The actor later confessed that he escaped his slump as an actor due to Tale of the Nine-Tailed.

Now, Kim Bum is starring in Law School that centers around the murder case at the country’s top school of law. He plays Han Jun Hwi, a top student of his class who has no shortcomings. Unlike Tale of the Nine-Tailed, he’s able to approach the viewers during a simpler performance.

From a handsome boy to a villain, Kim Bum has disappeared into various roles. Where will he be heading next?
