Kim Kkot-bi, the Korean Actress

Mostly known for being the star of South Korea’s indie film industry, Kim Kkot-bi is truly the epitome of the metaphor ‘started from the bottom, now we are here (on the top)’ as her luck in the field of acting began when the staff of movie in which she had a guest role spotted her and wisely requested for her to do an audition for Jealousy is My Middle Name, her first supporting role ever. Then, Kim Kkot-bi’s career finally reached its peak when she starred in the movie Breathless, and she continues to make a good impression among the film critics for her acting on Magic and Loss, Life is Peachy (otherwise known as Ashamed), and The King of Pigs. It is no wonder that soon after her debut in 2002, she received the award of Best Actress at several award ceremony events, such as the Youth Performing Arts Festival, the 10th Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival, and the 7th Pan Pacific Film Festival.
