A mysterious new Korean hottie has recently popped up on our radars! Cute oppa Kim Tae Hwan has the starring role in the funny new romantic comedy My Amazing Boyfriend, but who exactly is this newcomer? Here are 5 facts new fans need to know about Kim Tae Hwan.

1. Kim Tae Hwan is actually Korean, but his very first acting role ever is in the cute Chinese drama My Amazing Boyfriend. The supernatural drama takes inspiration from My Love From Another Star, but has its own unique plot lines and characters. 

My bet is that one big reason why Kim Taw Hwan was cast in the role is for his striking resemblance to Kim Soo Hyun!

Do you agree?

2. Kim Tae Hwan got his start as a talented international model. His agencies are Choiii in Seoul, I LOVE in Milan, and Bananas in Paris. He has walked down dozens of runways, and been featured in many magazines, like GQ Korea, Vogue Girl Korea, Esquire Korea, L'Officiel Hommes Korea, and more.

3. Kim Tae Hwan was born on July 12, 1992. Wasn't he an adorable child?

He is now 23 years old, 6' 2" (187 cm) and weighs 143 lbs (65 kg), which explains why he became a model.

4. According to his personal Instagram account, Kim Tae Hwan is an avid animal lover. How cute!

5. Kim Tae Hwan loves DramaFever fans. He even gave us this special video message:

In My Amazing Boyfriend, Kim Tae Hwan plays Xue Ling Qiao, an otherworldly being who has been asleep for centuries but is accidentally awakened by Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian), a spoiled actress. She is then forced to share her home with this awkward hottie with super powers. From bickering to eventually warming up to each other, an unlikely romance blossoms between them, but will a cosmic conspiracy keep them apart?
