Kim is an artist in the manhwa style. His latest artworks use a deformation technique where Kim disregards anatomical accuracy to achieve a specific feel to the character.

He has designed characters for video games such as the Magna Carta series and the later installments of the War of Genesis series (War of Genesis: Tempest, War of Genesis III and War of Genesis III: Part 2).
In 2009, Kim also designed characters of SoftMax's Magna Carta 2.

Kim is currently working on an MMORPG named Blade & Soul in NCsoft. Blade & Soul is an Asian martial arts fantasy with cultural influences mainly from the Korean culture. Though it was said that he would not be an artwork illustrator but an art director, Kim appears to also handle illustrations as all artwork released for the game up to now has been by him.

Bought Oxide 2x on Mandarake recently. I've always been a fan of Hyung Tae Kim's art. Super happy to own this book. I've played all the War of Genesis games when I was younger.

Most people may already know this but Blade & Soul is now released for NA and EU (Eng, Fr, Ger). This is a fully translated official localization, and free to play.

The art is a MAJOR drawing point for me. Mr. Kim's work is amazing. And the game is excellent as well.
