Stage Name: Kangin (강인) Birth Name: Kim Young Woon (김영운) Birthday: January 17, 1985 Hometown: Seoul, South Korea Nationality: Korean Debut: November 6, 2005 Position: VocalistArmy Service: Completed Kangin is a vocalist in the SM Entertainment Kpop group Super Junior. He debuted as an original member of the group in 2005, and soon after became a popular TV personality and host. He has held regular spots on TV shows like Star King, Love Triangle, and M!Countdown, Image Survival. Kangin made his musical theater debut in Xanadu in 2009. In 2007 Kangin became a source of conflict due to his busy schedule. At the time he was a regular cast member on the SBS variety show Explorers of the Human Body, while simultaneously a host of the MBC program Sunday Night Dongan Club, which was during the same time slot. When MBC demanded he leave the SBS show, SM refused on behalf of Kangin, leading to a year-long freeze out of all SM artists at MBC. Kangin left all of his regular MBC shows, which saw a resultant drop in viewership. The issue was eventually resolved a year later and SM artists were re-allowed onto MBC programs. In September of 2009 Kangin was arrested for assault after getting into a fight with two other men outside of a bar. It was eventually proven that Kangin was not the instigator, and that he was acting in self-defense. Exactly a month later, Kangin collided into a parked taxi at 3am. He left the scene of the accident, and turned himself into the police five hours later. When he arrived at the station he had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.082%. Kangin was summoned to court and paid a 8 million KRW fine for the accident. Kangin enlisted in the military service in July 2010 and completed his service in April 2012. He rejoined Super Junior for their sixth album Sexy, Free & Single in 2012. In 2016, Kangin was involved in yet another DUI hit-and-run incident, this time with a BAC of 0.05%. Kangin paid a 7 million KRW fine, and all of his activity in the entertainment field for the foreseeable future is cancelled.
