About Kim Soo Hyun

Currently rejoicing at the record-breaking viewership victory of his tvN weekend drama series Queen of Tears, Kim Soo Hyun is one of the highest-paid actors in South Korea. Having been featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30 Asia list (2016), the Baeksang Arts Award winner has grounded his top Hallyu star presence in the industry with household K-drama hits like Dream High (2011), My Love from the Star (2013) and It's Okay Not to Be Okay (2020).

Presently appearing as Baek Hyun Woo alongside Kim Ji Won's Hong Hae In, he's ruling the K-drama space on Saturdays and Sundays with his tvN series that international viewers are enjoying on Netflix. Kim Soo Hyun's ‘King of Korean Wave’ title is a testament to the ongoing rising achievements of the show, which ranked third on Netflix's global non-English Top 10 chart (March 11-17), reviving It's Okay to Not Be Okay magic on the worldwide OTT index. On the flip side, it's equally faring well in the domestic market with double-digit ratings.
