Kim Hye-soo (김혜수)

The 37-year-old with the cute tush, Kim Hye-soo is touted as Korea’s sex symbol (excellent choice, I say).

This sexy mama, who recently played MC at the Blue Dragon Film Awards on Nov 23, has been in the entertainment industry since she was 15! She made her debut in the 1986 flick Ggambo.

There’s not much in English about her early years in showbiz, but after reading articles on the star, Hye-soo comes across as a versatile actress.

To date, she has played a Mrs. Robinson-esque character – a married woman who has an affair with an undergraduate – in A Day for an Affair (2006), an aunt in Shim’s Family (2007) and a prostitute in Eleventh Mom (2007).

Although she has been in the industry since 1986, people only started to seriously take notice of her in 2001, when she returned to the silver screen in Kick The Moon.

Apart from that, her bold – and apparently, revealing – role in Hypnotized (2004) won her the Best Actress trophies at the 2006 Daejong (Grand Bell) Film Festival and the 2005 Baeksang Awards!

Her popularity soared (and took on a life of its own, we hear) in 2006 when she starred in Tazza: The High Rollers/ The War of Flower, where she portrayed a sexy gambling hostess.

aren’t all over the place

The model/ actress was also praised as the “Monica Bellucci of Asia” at the 2007 Udine Far East Film Festival in Italy. The president of the film fest, Sabrina Baracetti, compared Hye-soo – who was a guest at the event – to the sexy Italian actress.

The beautiful Hye-soo is going from strength to strength! She was even named the most beautiful face in Korea in 2006, as voted by the nation’s top photographers!
