The boy who is famous for the “sneer” meme: after 10 years, how is he now?

Just because his parents didn’t care properly, the child star lost his brilliant acting career.

With the constant progress of society, parents are more and more open and invest a lot for their children to learn the art from a young age.  Many kids have become Asia’s most popular child stars.  Of course, being famous too fast also comes with consequences.  The future of child idols depends a lot on their parents’ education.

The story of the child star Wang Suk Hyun is a typical example.  Joining the movie “Scandal Makers”, the boy attracted attention with his cute, mischievous appearance.  Especially with the moment of laughing at his grandfather, Wang Suk Hyun became the “funny icon” of Asia.

After the drama was released, Wang Suk Hyun became famous.  He also received the 2nd Korea Junior Star Awards for promising actors under 23 years old.

After the film ended, the boy continuously appeared on the prestigious red carpet, participating in commercials.  Although Wang Suk Hyun was a child, he acted naturally and boldly in front of the camera.  Being illiterate, he learned the script through the tapes.  Because he is illiterate, Wang Suk Hyun is taught by his parents to sign with pictures

Because of his popularity at the age of 5, all artistic activities of Wang Suk Hyun were decided by his parents.  But due to family conflicts, the child star was gradually forgotten and did not participate in TV shows anymore.

According to the Korean newspaper, Wang Suk Hyun’s disappearance from showbiz was caused by discord between his parents.  His parents divorced when he was young, so the boy lived with his mother.  While the mother wanted Wang Suk Hyun to continue acting, even signed a contract with a company, the father resolutely sued because he did not agree with the signing of the contract.

After that, he participated in several small films, then had completely disappeared from showbiz since 2013.

After the failed acting career, Wang Suk Hyun planned to return to showbiz.  Graduating from secondary school, Wang Suk Hyun took the entrance exam to Seoul Arts High School.  This is a private school located in Seoul (South Korea) and is one of the famous schools for both art programs and university entrance exam results.

Even so, Wang Suk Hyun still faced many difficulties.  He was once threatened by a crazy fan so he had to get help from the police.  After much effort, the boy received the Best Child Actor award at the 2018 MBC Drama Awards.

Two years ago, when he first came back, Wang Suk Hyun immediately became a hot topic and even stayed on Top 1 of Naver for 12 hours.  However, most people thought that the boy no longer looked as lovely and handsome as before.  Perhaps Wang Suk Hyun needs to work a lot to reach the peak of his career as before.
