At 5 foot 1 inch, and a shoe size of 4 and a half, Asian cutie Christine Kim is beginning to pop up all over the American entertainment industry.
From sketch comedy shows, and being featured in the upcoming series Real Rob directed and spearheaded by three-time Primetime Emmy nominee Rob Schneider (Saturday Night Life, The Hot Chick, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Grown Ups), to starring in the upcoming film A-Muse, actress Christine Kim has definitely had a busy year.
Kim knew that she wanted to be an actress ever since she was a child back home in Seoul, South Korea. At age 15 Kim made the move from South Korea to South Carolina by herself, then New York to attend college, a move that benefitted her greatly in the entertainment industry as well.
Proving her acting goes beyond her comedic skills and commercial girl-next-door looks, Kim has taken her craft to the stage performing in front of hundreds of people at New York’s Staller Center for the Arts in The Caucasian Chalk Circle. This performance in particular not only showcased Kim’s talents, but it also helped her elevate her craft.
“The Caucasian Chalk Circle was something that helped me to really come out of my shell and really explore and create a strong bond between me and my theater cast and crew,” explains Kim. “Before that, I had always been so shy and intimidated, but I think the pre-production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle was a time that I really started feeling comfortable in my body.”
After finding great success in New York, Christine Kim decided to move to Los Angeles where her commercial appeal began grabbing the attention of several high profile casting directors and management companies.
Although she received many requests for commercial, television and film work, which for the most part she’s accepted, the dedicated actress has continued to bring her talents to the stage.
She went on to play the critical role of Sophie in “Honour” at Hollywood’s ACME Theater, as well as Ali Chung in the production of “Jury Duty” at the Victory Theater.
Christine Kim is also a featured actress in the recently released commercial for Apple’s iPad 2. The actress’s cute Asian look backed by her versatile talent are not the only things making waves in the entertainment industry, people love her voice too!
She was recently hired by the Age of Learning’s ABCmouse.com to be the voice of the Korean teacher who teaches youngsters about reading, math, culture and art through online learning activities. Kim also has a mesmerizing singing voice and is planning to break into the music industry in the near future as well.
With an incredible number of films like Mr. Right, Choice, Better Than Normal and others already under her belt, this cute new Asian on the block has proven that she’s here to stay.
