Yoon Sang-hyun (born September 21, 1973) is a South Korean actor and singer. He is best known for his roles in Queen of Housewives (2009), My Fair Lady (2009), Secret Garden (2011) and I Can Hear Your Voice (2013).
Yoon Sang-hyun made his show business debut relatively late at age 32, in the 2005 television series Marrying a Millionaire. This was followed by forgettable supporting roles, until his breakout as the immature chaebol Tae-bong in Queen of Housewives in 2009. Later that year, he was cast in his first lead role as a rich woman's butler in My Fair Lady.
In early 2010, Yoon released the Japanese single Saigo no Ame ("The Last Rain"), which debuted at 11th place on the Oricon Chart. This was followed by hit TV series Secret Garden, in which he played the protagonist's cousin and Hallyu star Oska. As Oska, he sang "눈물자리 (Tear Stains)" and "Liar" and contributed to the soundtrack with "바라본다 (Gazing)" and "Here I Am"; he also performed in the Secret Garden Concert, which was filmed live for fans and included in the drama's plot.
In 2011, he released his Japanese debut studio album Precious Days, followed by concerts and showcases in Tokyo (February 25, 2011) and Osaka (February 27, 2011), which sold out after only one day. He then starred in romantic comedy Can't Lose, about a lawyer couple facing their own divorce suit.
Yoon appeared in his first major film role in 2012's Tone-deaf Clinic (released internationally as Love Clinique), playing a vocal coach who gives a tone-deaf woman voice lessons so that she can sing well in front of her crush.
In 2013, he returned to the small screen with the popular series I Can Hear Your Voice, in the role of a well-meaning but bumbling cop-turned-public defender. He later reunited with the director of I Can Hear Your Voice in the 2014 cable drama Gap-dong, in which he played a detective out to capture a serial killer and clear his father's name.
Yoon married singer MayBee on February 8, 2015 at the Walkerhill Hotel in Seoul. A day later, they released the duet Balsam Colors to commemorate the occasion, with sales from the digital single going to charity. The couple became engaged in November 2014 after eight months of dating.
