Jin Kim

Jin once played a virtuous woodcutter in a school play and has never looked back. Previous work with other companies includes The Awesome 80s Prom, iO (formerly ImprovOlympic), the Chicago Neutrino Project, the Playground, and Halcyon Theatre. Currently, you can catch him performing in the 2-person sketch troupe Jin & Joshi with SFN! alum Sayjal Joshi, as well as making Schaumburgers giggle audibly at Laugh Out Loud Theater. The UNC alum (go Heels!) is represented by Paonessa Talent. Many thanks all around.

Since making Chicago her home, she has done a lot of cool projects with a lot of cool people. You can also see her perform under a different name at Gorilla Tango Theater. Thank you for supporting live theatre; without you, this is just rehearsal.
