Happy Birthday to Kim Bum, a rising Korean actor and singer, who turns 20!!
I love him. *_* He is adorable in every way and only 2 months older than me. =]
He was one of the F4 in the amazing popular Korean version of the (already popular) Boys Over Flowers. Personally I thought his acting was a little bit stiff in BOF, so I could never like him. But. After seeing him in East of Eden, I fell in love with him. East of Eden is an AMAZING drama and his acting in it is wonderful, even if he only appears for a few episodes. I totally recommend it, and I'm going to be looking for this young actor in the future. =]
Speaking of the future, he'll be appearing this summer in the upcoming sports drama Dream, which also stars Son Dam Bi! It's apparently stars Kim Bum as a kid who spent time in a juvenile detention center and gets out and starts boxing. I'm not sure if cute little Kim Bum can pull of the tough look, but we'll see how it ends up.
And now for picspam! Click for bigger pics but please don't hotlink. I need to keep my bandwidth down. =]
AAAANNNND I feel compelled to share this video. xD; HE'S ADORABLE.
He also sings....convincing me that all Koreans have some capacity to sing. xD; His voice is nothing too spectacular but he did produce a pretty nice ballad for the BOF F4 Special OST (or smth like that lol), and he is surprisingly good. =] It's a pretty ballad, for sure. Here's an mp3 video and an mp3 upload for ya. =]
Comments very much appreciated, yes?
