Associate Professor Hyun Sook Kim holds MFA terminal degree in Costume Design from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, MA at the University of Illinois at Chicago and BA from Korea University in Seoul. As a longtime college educator, Kim has taught Ball State University, Korea National University of Arts, Chung-Ang University, among others. She is internationally recognized costume designer who holds rich professional experience in New York, London, Toronto, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Osaka, Beijing and Seoul. Many of her designs have been seen in well-known international venues and national theatres. Particularly, her design for the mega-scale musical, The Last Empress (Empress Myeongseong), has been presented at the NY Lincoln Center, at the LA Kodak Theatre and Schubert Theatre, and at the Toronto Hummingbird Center, as well as in London’s West End. In 2018, the musical celebrates its 23nd year’s anniversary of long-run success. Across the nation, she has designed for the New York LORT, Capital Repertory Theatre, The Human Race Theatre, and the AEA company, Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in New York City. Her designs have received laudatory reviews in The New York Times and presented in the international exhibits, PQ (Prague Quadrennial) and WSD (World Stage Design). As an art educator, she is always excited to see her students growing to think out-of-box and reaching out of their scope. Through her teaching career, she enjoys her students’ successes in the professional field. Her ultimate goal is to dedicate to training of young theatre artists to make them become soulful professionals, who can eventually contribute to the contemporary theatre with new creative ideas.
