Kim Bum is the popular star of numerous Korean television series and dramas, as well as several feature-length films. His best known role is as So Yi Jung in Boys Over Flowers. Winner of the Netizen Popularity Award at the 2008 Korean Drama Festival, Kim Bum was born on July 7, 1989, and was educated at Jungang University. Having set his sights on an acting career while still a young school boy, Kim regularly attended auditions and took acting classes. However, it was not until he joined the “Survival Star Audition” that his hard work finally paid off. He placed 8th in a field of hundreds, but because he was only 17, in a program aimed at actors in their 20’s, he could not proceed in the competition. “Survival Star Audition” opened many opportunities for Kim, and he began receiving multiple television series roles and his popularity soared. Although continually the object of much internet and magazine gossip, Kim Bum continues to ascend as a South Korean star, while remaining firmly planted in his roots.

Kim Bum plays So Yi Jung (Sojiroh Nishikado), one of the Korean F4 members in "Boys Over Flowers", the Korean remake of Japanese manga "Hana Yori Dango". Kim Bum showed his acting chops playing the young Lee Dong Chul in "East of Eden" and is one of South Korea's rising male stars to be watched.
