    South Korean actor Kahyun Kim rocked black and silver rhinestone bear head-shaped pasties during the premiere of her latest film “Cocaine Bear.” 

    Her red carpet outfit also featured a sheer chainmail dress by Natalia Fedner, thigh-high red leather boots, silver eye gems and tiny bags of faux cocaine. 

    The 33-year-old actor took to Instagram to post a picture of her outfit with the addition of a faux fur coat.

    What a dream come true and my most amazing glam team made it happen. Welcome to Cocaine Bear!” she wrote in her recent post’s caption.

    Kim, known for her roles in 2019’s “American Gods” and the 2018 remake of “Freaky Friday,” stars in the Elizabeth Banks-directed dark comedy action film alongside several castmates, including Ray Liotta, Kerri Russell, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Christian Convery, Alden Ehrenreich and Margo Martindale.

    “Cocaine Bear” centers around a 500-pound black bear that goes on a chaotic rampage after swallowing a duffel bag’s worth of cocaine. Banks has previously shared that the film was inspired by true events from 1985.
