Ahn Sung-ki (Hangul: 안성기; born January 1, 1952) is a South Korean actor.

Biography[edit]

A Roman Catholic,[1] he was born in Daegu, South Korea and grew up as a child actor - graduating Kyundong junior high school, from which Cho Yong-pil also graduated - appearing in director Kim Ki-young's celebrated film The Housemaid (1960).[2] Starting from the 1980s, he appeared in nearly 100 movies. He was a later graduate of the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. Because of his ability to speak several foreign languages, UNICEF appointed Ahn as a representative, and his image is often seen in advertisements on planes travelling to Korea. He acted twice as the President of South Korea in the movies the Romantic President (2002) and Hanbando (2006).

He had military service after graduating from university as an artillery officer (first lieutenant, 1974 ~ 1976) which he volunteered for.

On 23 June 2012, Ahn, along with Lee Byung-hun, became among first Korean actors to leave their hand and foot prints on the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. He was recommended by the Korean Film Producers Association for his body of work.[3]
