Min Jong Kim

Kim Min Jong

  • Name: Kim Min Jong
  • Native name: 김민종
  • Nationality: South Korean
  • Gender: Male
  • Born: March 23, 1972
  • Age: 52
Kim Min Jong is a South Korean actor and singer who was a matinée idol in the 1990s. He began his career in Korean film and television in the 1990s as a matinee idol with a gentle, serious image. He starred in popular TV series that kicked off pre-Hallyu Korean drama trends.

In 1992, he and fellow actor Son Ji Chang launched the duo The Blue (더 블루). They were playing leads in hit dramas at the time and enjoyed explosive popularity among women when they debuted with ballads and dance music. They went their separate ways for a while after their first album, but reunited in 1995 for a second project and produced many chart-toppers.

He simultaneously launched a successful career as a solo singer. But in 1996, at the height of his popularity, he announced his retirement from music after one of his hit songs turned out to have been a copy of another Japanese song. He made a comeback two years later with his fourth album.

Though his popularity dimmed in the mid- to late-2000s, he remained active in the entertainment industry as an actor.

In 2009, The Blue returned to the K-pop scene. Kim said Son had been toying with the idea of releasing a "best of" album for a while. When the two appeared together for an event in 2007, the positive response convinced them to get back together, so they re-recorded some of their old hits, such as "Feeling Only for You," "With You," and "Endless Love." They released a four-song single album and, during that year, went on official The Blue promotional activities. He and Son have also been business partners and co-CEO of Blue M Company since 2010.

In 2012, his management agency, SM Entertainment, designated him as a non-executive director of one of its subsidiaries, SM Culture & Contents (SM C&C).

On July 13, 2023, it was announced that Kim left SM Entertainment after 17 years as his exclusive contract had expired.
