Kim Soo-mi (born Kim Young-ok on September 3, 1949) is a South Korean actress. She has had a prolific career in film and television. Kim debuted in a talent contest in 1970, then shot to fame in Country Diaries.[1] The landmark TV series aired for almost 20 years,[2] making Kim one of the most popular Korean actresses of the 1980s.

In 2003 she made a memorable cameo as a profanity-spouting ajumma in the Jang Nara comedy Oh! Happy Day. It successfully revamped her image and rejuvenated her fading career.[3] Kim quickly became known in the Korean entertainment industry as the "Queen of Ad-lib,"[3] with her comic talent showcased in many of her succeeding projects, notably Mapado,[4] Twilight Gangsters,[5] Granny's Got Talent (2015),[6] and the Marrying the Mafia sequels.[7][8]

Kim also gained attention for her turns in more serious fare, such as 2006's Barefoot Ki-bong, a heartwarming pic about a developmentally disabled man. Her 2011 film Late Blossom is a romance between two elderly couples, a topic rarely explored in Korean cinema.[9][10] The low-budget indie became a sleeper hit, and for her portrayal of an Alzheimer's-afflicted woman, Kim won Best Supporting Actress at the Blue Dragon Film Awards.[11]

Other activities[edit]

In 1998, Kim's chauffeur-driven BMW shot backward, killing her mother-in-law. Kim filed a ₩1 billion lawsuit against BMW, alleging that the sudden-start had been a car defect. The Seoul District Court ruled in the automaker's favor in 2003, saying that it was unclear whether the accident was caused by driver error or a sudden-start.[12] Kim filed an appeal at the Seoul High Court.[13]

She headed the publicity as part of the organizing committee of the 1999 Hanam International Environment Expo.[14]

Since 2003, Kim has been the chairman of the Department of Theater and Film at Soongsil University's College of Social Sciences.
