Kim Nam-gil began his acting career on television with a minor role in the 1999 KBS youth dramaSchool 1. Four years later, he won the 2003 Talent Audition conducted annually by MBC , and appeared in various minor roles on the network's shows, while using the stage name Lee Han.
In 2006, Kim made the bold decision to portray a homosexual character in the controversial queer indieNo Regretin a role which included several gay sex scenes. The film was critically praised and traveled the film festival circuit, but it failed to boost Kim's popularity. Instead, he continued taking on more supporting roles in television dramas , among themGoodbye Solo,Lovers, andWhen Spring Comes.
Kim had previously stated in interviews that his role model is actor Jung Jae-young , who attended the same high school he did. He got to work with Jung in 2008'sPublic Enemy Returns. Upon the advice of the film's director Kang Woo-suk , Kim stopped using the stage name Lee Han and reverted to his birth name. Later that year, Kim played his first leading role in a major commercial film,Portrait of a Beauty. Though his co-star Kim Min-sun garnered most of the attention for the erotic costume drama , Kim's strong performance did not go unnoticed.
A horse-riding-related injury on set,and a brief hospitalization due to H1N1 flu ,were minor negatives compared to the impact the series had on Kim's career. He won several awards for his performance, gained more local and international fans,received advertisement offers, and was flooded with film and TV scripts.
