Shin Hyun-joon was an athletics major at Yonsei University before starting a career in modeling and acting in 1989. His film debut came in director Im Kwon-taek's Son of a General series, set under the Japanese occupation in the 1920s. For the first half of the 1990s he continued working with Im Kwon-taek and also acted in Hwa-Om-Kyung, Jang Sun-woo's award-winning film based on the Avatamsaka Sutra.

In recent years Shin has turned more towards popular cinema, finding his greatest success in fantasy/sci-fi works such as The Gingko Bed, The Soul Guardians, and the Korean-Chinese co-production Bichunmoo, as well as gangster comedies Marrying the Mafia II and Guns & Talks. In one of his most iconic roles, Shin played a 40-year-old marathon runner with the mental faculties of an 8-year-old boy in Barefoot Ki-bong.

A devout Christian, he published a photo-essay book Shin Hyun-joon's Confessions in 2008, which documented his personal insights about life and faith. The first printing sold out in two days, and the book was also released in China and Japan. Confessions contained a foreword by international star Jackie Chan as well as religious testimonies by other Korean celebrities such as Choi Ji-woo, Kim Won-hee and Nam Hee-seok. He is also known for his missionary work, charitable endeavors and volunteerism.

Aside from his job as an actor, Shin currently hosts the entertainment news program Entertainment Weekly on KBS2, the KBS Nine O'Clock News segment KBS Entertainment 925 on KBS1, and the Channel A talk show Show King. He has written two children's books: Aladdin and the Magic Lamp (2012) and Clown with Smiles and Tears (2013). He is also an acting professor at Induk University since March 2010.

Shin established the production company HJ Film and is the CEO of 3J Cosmetics.

Personal life

In 2009, Shin's then-manager of five years (identified only as Jang) filed a complaint against the actor, alleging that Shin had assaulted him after a heated argument at a bar in Sangsu-dong, Mapo District on September 22. At a press conference on September 25, Shin admitted to hitting Jang "lightly" and made a public apology. After the medical report showed no serious injuries, Jang declined to press charges, and the lawsuit was dropped on September 27.

Shin married Kim Kyung-mi (Linda Kim), a Korean-American woman 12 years his junior at the Grand Hyatt Seoul on May 26, 2013. His wife is studying for a doctorate in music in the United States, and Shin related on his show Entertainment Weekly that he bumped into her in the doorway of a building and fell in love at first sight.
