The currently most hated K-drama actor: attended a world’s top 1% university, stunning visuals in real life

Many netizens started to “hate” Joo Jong Hyuk after he played a mean character in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”

After starring as the mean “Tactician Kwon Min Woo” in popular K-drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, actor Joo Jong Hyuk has become the most hated Korean actor as of the moment. From a pretty much no-name actor, Joo Jong Hyuk managed to become a familiar name, delivering an excellent portrayal as one of the series’ antagonists, and causing various netizens to leave harsh comments on his personal SNS.  

However, while he received a lot of hatred for the role, Joo Jong Hyuk also earned a fair share of popularity from “Extraordinary Attorney Woo Young Woo”. Despite his character being rather minor, the actor drew attention for his unique charm and an iconic mole on his nose. In addition, he attended university in the world’s top 1% before turning to acting, which greatly impresses netizens.

While not boasting a “standard” visual god appearance, Joo Jong Hyuk has a sharp face that attracts a lot of fangirls. In addition, his nose mole makes a unique trademark for the actor and draws attention to his high and slim nose bridge.

Before switching to acting, Joo Jong Hyuk was the ideal son of many Asian parents. The actor graduated high school in Korea, before going abroad to major in Marketing and Hotel Management at the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. What’s more impressive is that Auckland University of Technology is among the top 1% universities across the world, and also one of the top education institutions in Australia – New Zealand. The fact that he successfully entered such a school is simply admirable. 

However, while working part-time as a barista, a customer offered Joo Jong Hyuk a role in a commercial film, leading to the actor developing a passion for acting. In 2015, he actualized his dream, and started to star in independent films.

In 2018, Joo Jong Hyuk signed a contract with BH Entertainment – an agency formed by famous actor Lee Byung Hun, which is home to various stars like Kim Go Eun, Go Soo, Han Hyo Joo, Lee Ji Ah, Park Bo Young, and more. In 2020, the actor won the “Kakao M Actors” competition, and ever since has been establishing his name through works like “My ID is Gangnam Beauty”, “D.P”, “Yumi’s Cells”, and most recently, “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”.
