XO’s Gia Kim, Kitty is only her second acting role in the Netflix series

Gia Kim is taking on the role of Yuri in Netflix’s XO Kitty series, but what do we know about the actress — from her age and Instagram to previous roles?

Over the years, Netflix has become the perfect testing ground for many aspiring actors as the streaming service continues to add to its ever-growing content library.

The latest series to appear on the streamer is XO, Kitty, a spin-off of the popular To All The Boys series, which features a host of new faces in their first major roles, including Gia Kim who plays Yuri.

Yuri in XO Kitty

Yuri Han is one of several key characters in XO, Kitty.

She is an attractive social media star with wealthy parents including school principal Jina Lim.

When the series begins and Kitty Song Covey arrives at her new school in Seoul, South Korea, she immediately develops a dislike for Yuri as the social media queen appears to be in a relationship with Kitty’s own boyfriend, Dae.

However, as the episodes progress, Kitty realizes that Dae and Yuri’s relationship is actually fake, as Dae is only posing as Yuri’s boyfriend to cover up the fact that she is gay and in love with her best friend, Juliana, which is what her strict parents do not approve.

Kitty and Yuri’s already complicated relationship takes on an even more complex dynamic when Kitty begins to develop romantic feelings for her former rival after Yuri takes care of her after getting heavily drunk at a party.
