As Christianity became introduced in Korea in the early 1800s, several Koreans, including Kim's father, was executed for practicing. Kim left Korea to study and practice, eventually returning to preach and becoming the first Korean priest. When Christianity became suppressed during the 1840s, Kim, along with other priests were tortured and beheaded.
