SBS drama series are now broadcast throughout twelve different TV stations in eleven different countries with phenomenal viewership success, and some of the formats of successful SBS drama series have been acquired by top producers in Latin America and adapted into their popular and familiar “telenovela” formats.
When he’s not working, Kim can be found on the putting greens and says he has golfed at more than 50 of the top courses in the world from Pebble Beach to Royal Birkdale. He is happily married with a son and lives in Calabasas, California.
