Kim Bo-yeon (born Kim Bok-soon on December 31, 1957) is a South Korean actress.

Career[edit]

Kim Bo-yeon graduated from Anyang High School of Arts, and on the principal's recommendation, she was cast in her acting debut, the film A Season of Blooming Love in 1974, followed by the television drama 제3교실 in 1975. As a supporting actress in 1976's "Really Really" series (Never Forget Me, I Am Really Sorry), she and costars Im Ye-jin and Lee Deok-hwa emerged as popular teen stars of the 1970s. Kim further rose to stardom in her role of a high school girl with a brain tumor in Kim Soo-hyun's drama You in 1977.

After You ended in 1978, a record company signed Kim, and she eventually released four albums and one Christmas album. Her single "Love is the Flower of Life" won the Gold Prize at the 1983 Seoul International Song Festival. In 1982, she won Best Actress at the prestigious Grand Bell Awards for her performance in Bae Chang-ho's film People of Kkobang Neighborhood.[1]

Plagued by rumors that she was romantically involved with Hyundai founder Chung Ju-young (which she denied), Kim left the entertainment industry temporarily in 1984 to study in the United States. She majored in Stage Design at Tusculum College in Tennessee.

Kim returned to Korea and resumed acting in 1987. In the following years, she received good reviews and acting recognition from the Chunsa Film Art Awards and Blue Dragon Film Awards for her roles in Silver Stallion (1991), Road to the Racetrack (1991), and A Hot Roof (1995). Though in recent years she's become more active in television, in 2009 Kim won Best Supporting Actress at the Buil Film Awards for playing a religion-obsessed mother in horror film Possessed.[2][3]

Born as Kim Bok-soon, she officially changed her real name to Kim Yoon-joo (Hangul: 김윤주) in 2007.

Personal life[edit]

Kim married in 1988, and had two daughters, Kim Eun-seo and Kim Eun-jo. She and her husband later divorced.

She met actor Jeon No-min on the set of TV series A Saint and a Witch in 2003, and they married a year later. It was the second marriage for both. The relationship was considered controversial at the time because of their nine-year age difference. The couple began a makgeolli business named Family's Honor in 2008, but after it failed, the resulting financial strain caused the couple to divorce in 2012.[4][5][6]
