“I want to be an irreplaceable actor. I am trying to develop my own uniqueness as an actor, something that cannot be found in other actors,” said Kim Dong-hyuk, a supporting actor in Six Flying Dragons, a drama depicting early Joseon Dynasty, historical time of Korea. In this drama, Kim plays the role of Park Chan-hyun, a Confucian scholar who played a role in protecting the people amidst a chaotic environment, in which the country was plagued with poverty and corruption.

Kim liked to dance, sing, and mimic others’ voices when he was in middle school and high school, and he dreamt of becoming an entertainer. After taking his first college entrance exam, he entered S.M. Entertainment, one of the biggest entertainment agencies in Korea, as an actor. However, he had to stop pursuing his career as an actor as his parents did not want him to pursue it further. Following his parents’ wishes, he focused on studying and entered the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Engineering at Hanyang University(HYU). However, at the age of 24, he once again became fascinated with acting, which led him to dedicate himself to the field.

In 2007, Kim played a role in The Four Guardian Gods of the King, a drama which was broadcasted on Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation(MBC). However, he expressed regret about his performance in this drama in which he played the role of a clerk, not one of the main characters. “I was just excited to take part in the big drama, and I did not do my best. I overlooked the fact that I should do my best in every role I get, regardless of how big or small it is. If I got an opportunity to perform in that role again, I would do my best,” he added. Actually, this drama was a turning point for Kim, reminding him of his attitude toward acting.

In Six Flying Dragons, Kim’s role was minor so he had to act out his character’s feelings within a short timeframe. He read some old news and critiques related to the actual situation on which his scene was based. With these efforts, he was able to totally immerse himself in his role of being Park Chan-hyun, and he felt a real sense of sadness on screen. “When I spoke my lines, I was sincere. Even though I was silent in some scenes, I tried my best to express the same feeling of Park Chan-hyun,” Kim added.

Kim is still working on Six Flying Dragons and also hoping to make it to the big screen. “I am thankful for the people who have recognized my potential as an actor. I will continue to work to my fullest potential without any distractions,” he said.
