Kim Young Kwang is a South Korean model and actor born in Incheon. He is currently represented by Wide-s Company.

He began his entertainment career as a model and has walked the runways of world-renowned designers such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Etro. He was the first Asian model to walk Dior Homme's 2008 show. That same year, he began his acting career with a support role in the drama "The World That They Live In".

Young Kwang’s father fought in the Vietnam war and died when Kim was in the sixth grade. Before he became famous he delivered newspapers as a young man, to help provide for his family.

On December 12, 2013, Young Kwan began his mandatory military service and was discharged in June of 2014. He was exempted from serving the full term, as he was deemed as 'an acknowledged person of national merit’.

Post-release, 2014 became his break-out year, with bigger roles in dramas such as TVN's "Plus Nine Boys" and the popular "Pinocchio", alongside Hallyu stars Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye.
