The reason for saying that is because the female star Kim was originally from a child actor, 6 years old had the main role in her first movie and was considered an acting prodigy. Without going through any training school, Kim Hyang Ki conquered and brought tears to millions of viewers with her extremely instinctive acting.

Born in 2000, 2006 started filming and since then until now, Kim Hyang Gi has continuously affirmed her position in the hearts of the audience. However, if Kim Yoo Jung and Kim So Hyun mainly acted in dramas, Kim Hwang Gi chose to be a movie actor. She participated in 2 parts of the million-dollar blockbuster “Challenge of the Gods”, when she was only 17, 18 years old. These two films and many other successful works have helped Hyang Gi become the youngest Korean star in history with a total ticket sales of more than 50 million at just 19 years old.
