Siwan ‘Completes’ Us: Happy 26th Birthday!


Yim Si Wan, better known by his stage name Siwan, is a triple threat — boyish good looks, sweet singing voice and smooth dance moves, and now, accomplished actor whose stardom will only escalate with his growing talent. The young star turns 26 today, and we expect great things in his bright future!

This was a breakout year for Siwan. After making his 2010 music debut with the hot nine-member K-pop boy band ZE:A, he began to catch people’s eye with his roles in the dramas “The Moon Embracing the Sun” and “The Equator Man” and the TV movie “Hope for Dating.” But Siwan has truly become a household name this year with his starring roles in “Triangle” and the currently airing “Incomplete Life.”

In the current hit drama, Siwan plays the quiet, easy-going Jang Geu Rae, an intern and then new hire at a large international trading company called One International. At first hazed by others for being a “parachute hire” (hired through nepotism) and only having a GED (high school equivalency degree), Geu Rae uses the strategies he learned in playing a Korean board game called badeuk to survive in the dog-eat-dog corporate world — capturing our hearts along the way!
