* Name: 김동욱 / Kim Dong Wook * Profession: Actor/Singer * Birthdate: 1983-Jul-29 * Height: 176cm * Weight: 60kg * Star sign: Leo * Blood type: B * Education: The Korean National University of Arts * Hobbies: Soccer and gymnastics After officially debuting in "A Crimson Mark", Kim Dong-wook's first notable role was the angry, impoverished teenager in director Byun Young-joo’s 2004 coming-of-age film "Flying Boys". He then broke into the mainstream as the bubbly waiter in MBC's 2007 hit romantic comedy series "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince". In the popular 2009 sports flick "Take Off", he starred as a former night club bouncer who ends up being a member of Korea’s national ski jumping team. In spite of the enormous physical challenge, Kim said it was a character he genuinely enjoyed playing. His musical theatre debut was in "On Air: Season 2", which was produced by his fellow alumni from the Korea National University of Arts. A loose spin-off of the TV series "On Air", it takes place at a radio station and centers around an idol singer-turned-DJ and an older female PD.

His follow-up the year after was the Korean production of "Legally Blonde", the Broadway musical based on the 2011 Hollywood film of the same name. He played Luke Wilson's role Emmett. Kim said its "the show must go on, no matter what" mentality was what he found appealing yet tough about doing musicals. According to critics one of the finest of achievements of the 2012 period thriller "The Concubine" is Kim’s engrossing performance as the tormented Prince Seong-won, who gradually loses his sense of judgment and emotional control in the face of obsessive love. Kim said of playing the intense role, "While feeling sorry for him, I also found the complexity of the character fascinating.

That’s what drew me in."
