“Parasite” and “Our Beloved Summer” star Choi Woo Sik: Pursued acting despite parents’ disapproval, impressive education, and more 

Choi Woo Sik has gone through a tough journey to get where he is today 

Pursuing his dream against parents’ wish 

Choi Woo Sik was born in 1990 in Korea, but he moved to Canada with his family in 5th grade. As an Asian, he initially had a hard time adapting in a brand new environment, but during high school, he really found his place and dream.

Because his father is an engineer, Choi Woo Sik was directed to study Computer Engineering since childhood. Not letting his parents down, Choi Woo Sik continued to achieve good results at school and was admitted to Simon Fraser University, one of the top universities in Canada.

However, during his freshman year at Simon Fraser University, Choi Woo Sik decided to return to Korea to pursue his passion for acting. His parents were against this decision, but they still let him go. 

Choi Woo Sik’s first audition in Korea did not go well because he lacked confidence. However, he still insisted on staying in Korea to make his dream come true, although his family in Canada was not supportive of this. Choi Woo Sik then passed the entrance exam to the Department of Cultural Studies at Chung Ang University and diligently joined more auditions. His hard work and talent finally paid off, as in 2011, he was cast in the film “Living in Style and The Duo”.

Success in both films and TV 

Choi Woo Sik got off to a late start but rapidly showed his exceptional talent. After “Set Me Free”, the first work that helped Choi Woo Sik receive movie awards, he has made great strides, participating in a series of box office blockbusters. His three most well-known works, Train to Busan, Okja, and Parasite, are what made him famous on a global scale. As a result, he was given the chance to take part in prestigious film festivals like Cannes, Oscar,…

Possessing an idol-like face, Choi Woo Sik asserts that he was really born to be an actor. In the field of television series, he also achieved many successes. The most prominent work is Our Beloved Summer, which is famous all over Asia. This work also helps him and Kim Da Mi become one of the most-loved couples of the year.

A scandal-free career and an admirable friendship

Not only loved for his roles, but Choi Woo Sik is also famous for his scandal-free private life. Over the past 10 years, he has never bothered fans with news about him.

Referring to Choi Woo Sik, the public is very quick to remember his wonderful friendship with the Wooga squad, which is made up of all-star celebrities Park Seo Joon, V (BTS), Choi Woo Sik, Park Hyung Sik, and Peakboy. Wooga squad inspires admiration in the audience because they show each other the deepest affection and consistently encourage one another. Recently, this influential group of friends has their own TV show where they share their daily lives and happy moments together.
