Kim admitted to being in a relationship with Matthew Shampine, general manager of WeWork Korea, in August. The two first met early this year at an event hosted by WeWork, a New York-based company that provides shared workspaces.
She made her debut in showbiz when she won a supermodel contest in 2005 and made a transition to acting in 2006.
She took her career to the next level in 2014 when she started working in the U.S. She has since appeared in various film and TV projects, including the TV series "Marco Polo," Marvel superhero film "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and Harry Potter spin-off "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald."
Shampine, who is three years Kim's senior, was born in Korea but adopted by American parents as a baby. He found his biological parents in 2007, 25 years after he was adopted, and received the Korean name Cha Min-geun.
