Kim Young-woon (Hangul: 김영운; Hanja: 金英雲; born January 17, 1985), better known by his stage name Kang-In (Hangul: 강인; Hanja: 強仁) is a singer, dancer, actor, MC, DJ, television host, and a former member of Korean boy band Super Junior.
Kim Young-woon became a trainee under SM Entertainment soon after he won first place on the 4th SM Youth Best Selection Best Outward Appearance in 2002. Soon afterwards he made a brief cameo appearance in the SBS drama, A Man And A Woman in May 2002.
Although originally auditioned to be an actor, he was placed under many all-boy project groups, including the rumored group Four Seasons, a four member boy band that was to include Kim Heechul, Hero Jaejoong, and U-Know Yunho. However, both U-Know Yunho and Hero Jaejoong soon debuted as members of TVXQ in 2003, leaving Kim Young-woon and Kim Heechul to join Super Junior two years later. Kim Young-woon decided to use the stage name Kang-In, which is translated to "strong benevolence," to show his strength as an entertainer and performer.
