This famous actor who was exploited by his father and half-sister, controlled by a terrifying girlfriend’s demands
Kim Soo Hyun, the “most expensive handsome man” in Korea, has suffered greatly, causing sympathy from the public.
Born in 1988, Kim Soo Hyun is a well-known name in Korean entertainment. He is known as a talented A-list actor with diverse acting styles, capturing the hearts of the audience with his perfect appearance and impressive acting skills.
From a student in Dream High, the teacher in “My Love from the Star”, to a medical staff in “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” and most recently a bold role in “One Ordinary Day”, Kim Soo Hyun successfully embodies his characters, capturing the hearts of the audience and receiving praise from professionals.
IHQ’s “Secret Newsroom” program has three highlighted keywords for Kim Soo Hyun: “Young and Rich”, “Seongsu-dong”, and “500 million KRW/episode”. It is known that the actor currently lives in the most luxurious apartment building in Seongsu-dong, Seoul. In addition, Kim Soo Hyun’s advertising revenue has also increased significantly. So far, he has earned an estimated 50 billion KRW in advertising revenue per year, topping the revenue of celebrities at that time (according to Forbes Korea).
Furthermore, Kim Soo Hyun is also considered the most expensive actor in Korea with a record-breaking fee of 500 million KRW for one episode of “One Ordinary Day”. His fee is higher than that of the combined fees of two actors, Lee Byung Hun and Hyun Bin, proving his incredible attraction in the Korean entertainment industry.
Success in his career is one thing, but few know that he has experienced many hardships in life to achieve what he has now.
Relatives using reputation for personal gain
Kim Soo Hyun comes from a not-so-wealthy family in Seoul. His father, Kim Chung Hoon, is a member of the rock band Seven Dolphins. Kim Soo Hyun’s parents divorced early on, and he and his mother lived together in a rented house for 20 years.
As for Kim Soo Hyun’s father, after abandoning the mother and son, he built a new family and had a daughter named Kim Joo Na. This half-sister of Kim Soo Hyun, who shares a father but has a different mother, also pursued an artistic career as a solo singer and participated in Producer 101.
Although they have the same father but have never met, Kim Joo Na once spread false information about their close relationship to facilitate her entry into Kbiz. Meanwhile, Kim Chung Hoon is very “enthusiastic” about his son when he affirms that “my son is my greatest motivation”, even though he has abandoned him and his mother for a long time.
It is clear that Kim Soo Hyun and his younger sister, Kim Joo Na, have different mothers but share the same father. Kim Joo Na once released false information that the relationship between her and her brother was very close to pave the way for her entry into Kbiz. Meanwhile, Kim Chung Hoon, their father, is very enthusiastic when it comes to talking about his son, affirming that “my son is my biggest motivation,” despite having abandoned him and his mother for a long time.
The revelation that Kim Joo Na is Kim Soo Hyun’s younger sister unintentionally caused the actor to be criticized by many people. When he first debuted, Kim Soo Hyun always emphasized that he was an only child. Many antifans took this opportunity to mock and attack him to tarnish his reputation. Facing these issues, Kim Soo Hyun remained silent. Later, he explained that he did not mention Kim Joo Na to protect his mother from being hurt.
In contrast to his mother, Kim Soo Hyun’s relationship with his father is not close.
When the public learned of the situation, they were surprised and began to criticize Kim Joo Nam and his daughter for being fame-hungry. They didn’t care when Kim Soo Hyun was poor, but when he gained fame and wealth, they purposely used it to benefit themselves and enhance their reputation.
Kim Soo Hyun has a fit and toned body with six-pack abs, but few people know that he had a heart condition since he was a child. The illness forced him to limit his physical activity and made him more introverted around others. Due to his heart disease, Kim Soo Hyun was supposed to be given priority to serve in the community as a civilian when he joined the army. However, he worked hard to improve his health to become a soldier.
After completing his training, he was assigned to the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, stationed in the demilitarized zone. He was also promoted to sergeant for his efforts in fulfilling his civic duty.
The girlfriend controls Kim Soo Hyun’s mental state with terrifying demands.
According to Dispatch’s revelations, Kim Soo Hyun’s girlfriend is a very strict woman who places many mental demands on him. She uses demands and threats to control Kim Soo Hyun’s mental state, causing him to feel very tense and pressured.
This situation has been going on for a long time and has had a significant impact on Kim Soo Hyun’s life and career. He has had to deal with stress and pressure in both his work and personal life.
However, after a while, Kim Soo Hyun decided to end his relationship with his girlfriend because he did not want to be further controlled mentally. He said that maintaining the balance of his mental and psychological health is very important to him.
In life and work, controlling one’s mental state is very important to achieve success and happiness. However, using demands and threats to control the mental state of others is not right and can harm their psychological health. Therefore, each person needs to make their own decision and maintain balance in their own life.
