Young Ae Kim

  • Name: Kim Young Ae
  • Native name: 김영애
  • Also Known as: Kim Yeong-Ae
  • Nationality: South Korean
  • Gender: Female
  • Born: April 21, 1951
  • Died: April 9, 2017
Kim Young Ae was a South Korean actress. Kim began her acting career when she joined MBC's 3rd Open Recruitment in 1971. She made her acting debut in the TV police procedural "Chief Inspector" and subsequently built a prolific career in film and television. After she made her film debut in 1973's "Long Live the Island Frogs", Kim became most active on the big screen in the 1970s and early 1980s.
In 2006, Kim temporarily put her acting career on hold when she became the vice chairman of cosmetics firm Chamtowon, which mainly produces soap and mud packs. Her company filed a ₩20 billion lawsuit against state-owned network KBS in 2008, after the program, Consumer Report falsely reported that Chamtowon's mud-based products contained heavy metals above safe levels. During the eight months after the broadcast, the company went virtually bankrupt and had to suspend operations at its factory in Jeongeup in North Jeolla Province and lay off 100 workers. After the Korea Food and Drug Administration confirmed that the magnetic substance found in the mud products was oxidized steel originally present in the mud, not foreign materials put into the products during the manufacturing process, the court ruled in favor of Chamtowon, and ordered KBS to release a correction regarding the wrong report. But Chamtowon wasn't able to recover from its financial losses, and the strain contributed to Kim's divorce from her husband.
Kim died of pancreatic cancer on April 9, 2017, just two weeks before her 66th birthday.
