Yoon Sang-hyun (born September 21, 1973) is a South Korean actor and singer. He is best known for his roles in Queen of Housewives (2009), My Fair Lady (2009), Secret Garden (2011) and I Can Hear Your Voice (2013).


Yoon Sang-hyun made his show business debut relatively late at age 32, in the 2005 television series Marrying a Millionaire.[2] This was followed by forgettable supporting roles, until his breakout as the immature chaebol Tae-bong in Queen of Housewives in 2009.[3] Later that year, he was cast in his first lead role as a rich woman's butler in My Fair Lady.[4]

In early 2010, Yoon released the Japanese single Saigo no Ame ("The Last Rain"), which debuted at 11th place on the Oricon Chart.[5][6] He released his second single Oath on June 24.[7]

This was followed by hit TV series Secret Garden with Kim Sa-rang (actress), in which he played the protagonist's cousin and Hallyu star Oska.[8][9][10] He released a single titled "Looking at U" for the soundtrack of the drama.[11]

In 2011, he released his Japanese debut studio album Precious Days, followed by concerts and showcases in Tokyo (February 25, 2011) and Osaka (February 27, 2011), which sold out after only one day.[12][6] He then starred in romantic comedy Can't Lose, about a lawyer couple facing their own divorce suit.[13][14]

Yoon appeared in his first major film role in 2012's Tone-deaf Clinic (released internationally as Love Clinique), playing a vocal coach who gives a tone-deaf woman voice lessons so that she can sing well in front of her crush.[15][16][17][18]

In 2013, he returned to the small screen with the popular series I Can Hear Your Voice, playing a well-meaning but bumbling cop-turned-public defender.[19] He later reunited with the director of I Can Hear Your Voice in the 2014 cable drama Gap-dong, in which he played a detective out to capture a serial killer and clear his father's name.[20] He then starred in the comedy film, My Dynamite Family.[21]

In 2016, Yoon starred in the romantic comedy drama My Horrible Boss.[22] He starred in another rom-com the same year, playing the second lead role in Shopaholic Louis.[23]

In 2017, Yoon starred in the mystery black-comedy drama, Ms. Perfect.[24]

In 2018, Yoon starred in the melodrama Let's Look at the Sunset Holding Hands alongside Han Hye-jin.[25]

Personal life[edit]

Yoon married singer MayBee (Kim Eun-ji) on February 8, 2015 at the Walkerhill Hotel in Seoul.[26] A day later, they released the duet Balsam Colors to commemorate the occasion, with sales from the digital single going to charity.[27] The couple became engaged in November 2014 after eight months of dating.[28][29] The couple's first daughter Na-gyeom was born in December 2015, while their second daughter was born in May 2017.[30][31]
