The Korean violinist Suyoen Kim was born in the German city of Münster in 1987. She began playing the violin when she was five years old and at the age of nine enrolled as an external student at the Detmold Musikhochschule, studying with Helge Slaatto, the youngest such student ever accepted at a German conservatory. From 2004 to 2008 she was a full student of Helge Slaatto at the Münster Musikhochschule and is now a post-graduate student with Anna Chumachenko at the Munich Musikhochschule.

At the age of sixteen she was already receiving accolades from important sources, appearing in concerts and recordings as a soloist with major orchestras throughout Europe and in Korea. Suyoen Kim is a laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels (2009), and among other awards won first prize in the Hannover International Violin Competition (2006), the Augsburg Leopold Mozart Competition (2003), and the Copenhagen Berlingske Tidende Youth Competition (1999, 2000), with Jugend musiziert in Germany (2001). In 2005 she obtained the Young Artist Award of the State of Northrhine-Westphalia.

She has benefited from a number of scholarships in Germany and plays a violin made by Camillus Camilli (Mantua, 1742) which was given to her by Deutscher Musikinstrumentenfonds of the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben.
