He said that he was addicted to TV and reading about the lives of different actors in the tabloids and on the entertainment news channels.

Growing up in Seoul in a very average South Korean household made him somehow restless and he wanted to try a different path for his career. It was either acting or martial arts for him as he was already training for Judo in the elementary school. He also competed in the national Judo championships and won quite a few of them. He was in love with Judo to an extent that he became quite serious about making a career in the sport during his early teenage, but somehow, during his middle school days, he fell in love with performing arts, and dropped judo completely.

He started acting during the high school days itself and appeared in a few theatre productions at that time, such as ‘The Dreamers’, ‘Monsters’ and the ‘13th Hero’. Along with that, he also kept honing his acting skills through appearing in several low to zero budget short films such as ‘Beastie Boys’ and ‘Boy in Pain’.
