Kang Dong Won is a South Korean film and television actor. While studying Mechanical Engineering at Hanyang University, he was spotted on the streets by a modeling agent in 2000, and became a model. After this, he began his acting career with two dramas, and then filmed his first movie, "Too Beautiful to Lie". However, his first real breakthrough was in "Temptation of the Wolves", after which he became one of the top actors in South Korea.
He continue to surprise the audience in roles like "Voice of a Murderer" and "Maundy Thursday". With his beautiful, androgynous looks, he is becoming popular in other Asian countries, especially Japan. Once again in 2007, he proved his talent by portraying a grotesque character in Lee Myung Se's "M", marking their second collaboration. As a result he earned wide recognition from critics for his stylish flair in choice of characters, which are mostly very peculiar roles.
Kang entered the military on Nov. 18, 2010, a compulsory duty for all South Korean males.
His father is the Vice President of SPP Shipbuilding Co. Ltd –> one of the largest shipbuilding companies in the world.
