Kim Joon debuted in 2007 as a member of vocal group T-Max, which sang the drama's iconic theme song "Paradise", before earning fame through his portrayal of Song Woo Bin on the drama series based on Japanese manga series of the same title.
He has also starred in "Detectives in Trouble", "Endless Love" (2014) and "City of the Sun". The rapper recently starred in theater productions, including "Yeodo".
"I made my theater debut as I happened to come across a genre I always wanted to try out by chance," he said of his acting career. "I will continue to meet everyone with various types of work in the future."
Following his marriage and child announcement, fans have showered him with congratulations. Kim Joon later thanked fans for their support by sharing a heartwarming photo of him and his daughter.
"Two dummies... #A Dummie for his Daughter #A Dummie for her Dad #ThankYou," he wrote in the caption.
