Eric D. Steinberg was born to a Jewish American professor of Asian Studies and a Korean immigrant. He launched his career by appearing in a number of television series such as CSI: Miami
, Stargate: SG-1
and Largo. In 2006, he was cast for the role of Ji Min Kim on the soap opera, The Young and the Restless.
Ji Min Kim is portrayed by Eric Steinberg on the soap opera, The Young and the Restless. Ji Min was the owner of House of Kim, a dummy corporation that Jack Abbott built to secretly buy back Jabot Cosmetics from Katherine Chancellor. Ji Min then got involved in the corporate rivalry and intrigue between Katherine, Jack and Victor Newman. He also was involved with Jill Abbott, who also returned his feelings. However, some people tried hard to tear them apart, such as Gloria, the former stepmother of Ji Min who began monitoring the cameras at his office to see if he would have sex with Jill there. This would destroy Jill's relationship with William Bardwell. The plan failed as the two really had feelings for each other, despite the sexual enhancement pills that they were secretly being given by Gloria.
