Kim Tae Hee Has the Looks and the Smarts


The pictures that have caught the attention of netizens lately are from a September 2009 appearance on the MBC every1 show “Star the Secret.” During the show, a picture of Kim Tae Hee’s report card from her time as a high school student (It was aptly titled, “When Kim Tae Hee was only studying to get into Seoul National University) was put on screen along with a picture of a younger Kim Tae Hee. Kim Tae Hee looks as lovely as ever with a bob haircut and a serious, studious expression.

The caption reads, “Once she looked up at the teacher, she never lost sight of the teacher’s every movement.” These pictures certainly aren’t new, so, it’s interesting that they’ve attracted so much attention recently. Netizens are quite interested in her P.E. report card. On the left, from top to bottom, is Kim Tae Hee’s height and weight for that year. Next to where her weight is written is her grade. The first two are “il-gup” which is similar to an “A” in the US. The last one is “tuk-gup” which is like an “A+.”

Netizens left comments such as, “Kim Tae Hee is the proof that this world is unfair,” “She’s not just the school top, she’s perfect,” and “Not only is she pretty, but she’s smart. Kim Tae Hee is incredible”. Did you know that Kim Tae Hee was so athletic?
