Kim Tae-ri (born April 24, 1990) is a South Korean actress.
Kim was born on April 24, 1990 in Seoul and has a brother who is two years older than her. She was raised by her grandmother during childhood. After graduating from Youngshin Girls' High School, Kim enrolled into the Department of Media Communication at Kyung Hee University.
Kim started her career appearing in theater productions and modelling in TV adverts. She made her feature film debut in Park Chan-wook's film The Handmaiden (2016) where she was chosen from among 1,500 candidates who auditioned for the role. Park's first impression of Kim reminded him strongly of his first meeting with actress Kang Hye-jung, who had her career breakthrough in Park's film Oldboy (2003).
In 2017, Kim appeared in the political thriller 1987: When the Day Comes. In 2018, Kim headlined the Korean film adaptation of the manga series Little Forest. The same year, she is set to make her small-screen debut in the period melodrama Mr. Sunshine, written by Kim Eun-sook.
