Kim Rae Won initially wanted to become a professional basketball player, but when an injured ankle tendon ended that childhood dream, he turned to acting and studied Theater and Film at Chung-Ang University. He made his acting debut in the 1997 teen drama “Me”. In 2003, he became a household name after acting in the popular series “Attic Cat”.
On September 28, 2011, he was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with a waitress at a bar in Gangnam, Seoul, where he and employees of his then-agency Bless Entertainment were drinking. He issued a denial, claiming he had only interceded in a verbal argument between the woman and an agency rep, and later made a public apology regarding the incident.
