Highest Paid Star Kim Soo-Hyun Through The Years: A Look Back At His Transformations

Find out what sets this Hallyu star apart!

You've most probably seen him in one of the highest rating K-dramas 'My Love From the Star', as well as movies like 'Secretly, Greatly.' But these days, top Korean actor Kim Soo-hyun is busy acting as Moon Gang-tae in It's Okay to Not Be Okay (IOTNBO), a Netflix original series, and actually tops the list of highest paid Korean actors in 2020, reportedly bringing in a whopping 200 million Won per episode of IOTNBO, approximately 8.3 million Pesos. 


What then, does this 32-year old Korean actor (who also happens to be a singer) have that allowed him to get catapulted to such phenomenal success? We'd say his looks alone are worth every penny, but it's his stellar talent for acting that sets him apart. While there are indeed plenty of superb Korean actors out there, Kim Soo-hyun is able to bring that quiet charm, as well as that unexplicably enchanting demeanour that leaves you wanting more with every single scene.
