Have you ever seen an actor who can play nearly every type of role given to them? Kim Sung Oh is that type of actor. In his 15-year career he has played a wide variety of different characters that includes a murderous psycho and an adorably awkward secretary. He plays his characters so well, you don’t think he can ever convincingly play another one, until, well, when he does play another one and you forget all about his previous roles. From one movie, you feel chills run down your spine every time you seem him on screen, but after watching his next drama, you just want to hug him for being so sweet.
