Kim Soo-hyun flooded with CF offers

Actor Kim Soo-hyun (Will it Snow for Christmas?, Giant) is well on his way to being the new prince of CFs, with three new campaigns in July alone.

The 22-year old actor debuted in MBC’s family sitcom Kimchi Cheese Smile (most redundant title ever), and has gone on to make a name for himself as the backstory kid in dramas such as Will it Snow for Christmas? and again in this year’s Giant. He also landed a major role in the drama special Father’s House, and has been growing his skills as an actor.

He’s being praised as a young actor with surprising depth, especially in his eyes. The campaigns are capitalizing on his fresh, youthful image, while utilizing his acting range.

Kim is definitely a young up-and-comer to look out for. His turn in Giant solidified his potential as a serious actor, and he’s probably due to get past playing the lead characters’ teen versions.

Love to see a rising star who’s not just another pretty face.

Oh, he's too cute for his own good~
I still think he's too "baby-faced" to take on the lead roles unless its a highschool drama, that being said, when he matures more - physically - I think he'll be in line with some of the top actors~

@ 4 Diamondback

My exact reaction. I thought he was wearing a skirt until I scrolled down. Eh, not a fan of those pants.

But I'm glad that I can have someone to look out for that has more than pretty looks to his arsenal. Sweet!

I find him THAT good that I want him to steer further and further away from the idol/trendy rom-coms.
I was commenting about him on OT recently as I've noted how his careful choice of projects has had him rubbing shoulders with greats like Choi Min-soo in Father's House and Jung Bo-suk in Giant, in which he opened up for the awesomesauce Park Sang-min. Not every young and rising actor can boast the same and considering he's not really done that many projects.
Hope he stays this picky about his projects. Maybe he can act alongside Kim Myung-min next or something, just sayin'.
Alas, I'll be remembering him as 'the laundry boy' for a long time now. Oh how I wailed like an ahjumma for him.

In the first half of the picture he looks so adorkable, the bottom part is something I will try to forget.

And btw who else things he would have been a great lead in playful kiss, together with the new girl from bad guy?

I want Kim Soo-Hyun to stay away from the romantic comedies as well. ^ He has proven he can heavier material and I take him more seriously because of it.

My sentiments exactly (that he should be the lead for Playful Kiss) ! Did he not act as the autistic boy in Precious Family? Already then, he was good.

Love him! not the pants....I too think he would have been great in Playful Kiss but that can't be changed now. Still, I want to see him in a rom-com! I wanna see his funny side after all the serious roles. :)

I think I have to adjust to this new fashion sense. Lol.
He's cute. I seriously want him on Playful Kiss, afraid of KHJ's interpretation of the character. Really.

I'm watching "Giant" & loved the first 8 episodes because the children played their roles very well, especially KSH & the kid-actor playing GangMo!!!
But now on my 10th episode...am kinda losing interest cuz what sold me into watching it in the first place are gone...hope the future episodes perk my interest enough for me to finish the drama!!

I watched him in 'Will it Snow for Christmas?' and 'Giant'. I loved him in both.
And I agree with this "surprising depth, especially in his eyes" so much xD Everytime I saw his eyes I was melting xD
Looking forward to his next dramas, wish he'd have a lead role sometimes soon and not just a teenager of the lead.

I Loved him in Giant, @deannadsc the children acting was great so much so that you can't help but continue to watch as they develop into adults. The acting as adults is superb and the storyline is one of the best written (my personal opinion) After watching 8 episodes and you hesitate about continuing because they are no longer children is a great loss. This storyline is so detailed and have incredible depth that the first 8 episode is like shaving one side of your head. If you lost the connection after the they enter into adulthood then you wasn't really watching the drama as a whole, the screenwriter did a brilliant job writing such a wonderful storyline not just showing you they hardship but through EVERYONE acting enable you to feeling it. I never watch a drama where everyone from main characters down to the supporting cast has been flawless and deliver such realistic, natural acting as a whole the incredible chemistry EVERYONE brings into this drama is wonderfully refreshing.

I wouldn't encourage you too continue, if you thought for one minute that this drama is boring then watching the remaining 40 episode would be senseless. It currently on episode 22 and with anticipation I look forward to the remaining 28 episode because each episodes as been better then the last, this drama has been nothing short of a master piece.....(My personal Opinion)

looking through some of the older posts on here and couldn't help but comment when I saw this - cause seriously, just look at Kim Soo Hyun now. He certainly moved up from acting out the teenage backstories of male leads.
