Who is Sung Kang’s wife? Miki Yim Wiki Bio

Miki Yim was born in South Korea, and although she hasn’t shared her exact date of birth with the public, she is said to be around 45 years old – she rose to prominence after marrying Sung Kang, a popular actor, while her career of choice is fashion design.

Childhood and education

Miki spent her entire childhood in South Korea alongside her parents, but being as secretive as she is, Miki hasn’t shared any details regarding her mother and father with the public – she hasn’t talked about having any siblings either, which is why it is not known whether or not she is an only child.

Unlike other girls in her class, Miki was never interested in becoming an actress, a singer, or a model. She grew up without really knowing what she wanted to build herself a career in, but eventually fell in love with fashion, wanting to create her own clothes. Simultaneously, she was interested in working on her education, and after she matriculated from a high school in South Korea, she enrolled at the Meiji Gakuin University (one of the most popular in South Korea) and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English language in 1996.

Career as a fashion designer

Fashion designing is not a career there is a lot to say about, and at the same time, Miki is not the kind of person who likes to talk about her achievements, much less brag about them.

One of the things which made Miki stand out among other fashion designers is the work she has done while being a supervisor for Louis Vuitton in Honolulu, Hawaii – praised for her work there, numerous doors opened for Miki, and her name soon became recognized in the fashion design industry.

Good job opportunities followed after Louis Vuitton, and Miki went on to work for Sephora, after which she became part of the Coco Chanel team – she has since worked for numerous brands, including Celine Incorporated and La Perla. All this led Miki to begin working for Prada as their general manager in Honolulu (once again) which was the best moment of her career, as she has explained it.

Love life and marriage with Sung Kang

Miki and Sung Kang have been together for more than 26 years now, but have succeeded in keeping their relationship and now marriage away from the public’s attention.

The two met in 1992 soon after Miki matriculated from high school, and they instantly fell for one another. Their relationship was officially launched just days later, and it appears as Miki and Sung are indeed meant to be, as there have been no rumors nor controversies surrounding their relationship since they first came together. They certainly didn’t rush into marriage, and only exchanged their wedding vows in 2014 at a very small ceremony organized just for their close friends and family. It appears that the two have agreed not to have any children together, as they are both more focused on working on their careers.

There don’t seem to have been any other men involved in Miki’s life, and it is not known whether she has dated anyone before meeting Sung.

Who is Sung Kang?

Sung Kang was born in Gainesville, Georgia USA, on 8 April 1972, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding American nationality – he is a popular actor who came into the spotlight after playing Han Lue in several “The Fast and the Furious” movies. Although born in the US, Sung’s home country is South Korea as both of his parents were born there, but moved to California not long before he was born.

Sung went to elementary school in California as well as high school, and then chose to study law at the University of California – however, as he wasn’t very satisfied with making a career in law for himself, he dropped out of college to pursue acting. His parents were not happy with Sung’s decision, but eventually decided to accept it and support their son.

Sung has had numerous roles throughout the years, but only a few of these have brought him recognition in the film industry, but they’ve helped him build quite a fanbase. He first rose to prominence after playing Han Hu in the “Better Luck Tomorrow” crime drama movie shot in 2002 – he went on star in “The Motel” movie in 2005, which further improved his acting status.

In 2006, Sung played Han Lue in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” action adventure movie, and it has since stayed the biggest success of his career – additional roles in the franchise followed, including “Fast & Furious” in 2009, “Fast Five” in 2011, and “Fast & Furious 6” in 2013. Other than these, Sung has also played several other notable roles, including in “War” and “Live Free or Die Hard” both in 2007, “Bullet to the Head” in 2013, and “The Free World” in 2016.

Sung has also tried running a restaurant, which he called Saketini and opened in Brentwood in Los Angeles, California, however, he closed it in January 2013 for unknown reasons.

Sung can be found on Instagram, where he has so far gathered more than 1.1 million followers and uploaded over 1,000 pictures onto it.

Miki’s hobbies and other interests

While fashion designing is something she is mostly focused on, there are several other things Miki loves and is fond of doing. She enjoys spending her free time in nature, especially at sea, and on ocean beaches – most of the pictures she uploads onto her Instagram account are from natural locations; besides beaches, she also enjoys spending her free time in woods and high-up in the mountains. She has been interested in sports since at high school, and although she was very good at volleyball, she stopped playing it completely once she enrolled at college.

Thanks to her husband Sung being a popular actor, Miki has fallen in love with movies, and her favorite amongst all she has so far watched is the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, one suspects mostly because her husband is acting in it. She has also seen a couple of TV series, of which her favorite is “Friends”.

Appearance and net worth

Miki hasn’t shared her exact date of birth with the public, but is said to be around 45 years old as of late 2019. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, while her height and weight are unknown.

According to authoritative sources, her current net worth has been estimated to be more than $2 million, and is steadily rising thanks to her career as a fashion designer.

Social media presence

Miki doesn’t seem to be very active on the internet, as she has a Facebook profile and an Instagram account but doesn’t update either very often. Her Instagram account is currently followed by 53 people while she has uploaded 69 pictures onto it so far – she uses her Facebook profile just to stay in touch with her friends and family.
