Everyone loves Cha Eun Woo! He is so popular with fans and fellow stars alike because he’s talented and fun. But did you know that he was breaking into his acting career before all that? In fact, before anyone knew who Cha Eun Woo was, he has appeared in popular T.V. dramas.
Although his part in the drama may have been minor, he made a big splash with excellent acting. Since then, he has had many impressive roles and here are some of them to check out if you haven’t already watched them all.
1. “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty”
Kang Mi-Rae has always been aware of what others think about her physical appearance, and it’s affected her more than she’d like to admit. So she decided that getting plastic surgery was the only way to live life without feeling self-conscience.
After that, Mi Rae becomes excited to start her new life on the first day of university, but she runs into Do Kyung Suk (Cha Eun Woo), a very handsome, popular boy from elementary school. One day the two meet again by accident. Kyung Suk realizes that his feelings for her more than just surface-level.
A lot of us have watched that series for sure! It was Cha Eun Woo’s first significant starring role, and he proved he could deliver under the spotlight in a big way. He brought authentic natural charm and charisma on set that captivated the viewer. But, of course, his good looks probably helped with that; imagine seeing him fall in love with someone who was never popular!
2. “True Beauty”
Lim Ju Gyeong (Moon Ga Young) is a high school student who has been bullied mostly because she isn’t the prettiest. So she has decided to take it upon herself to learn how to do makeup by watching videos online. She gets into a love triangle between Lee Su Ho (Cha Eun Woo) and Han Seo Jun (Hwang In Yeop).
If you loved Cha Eun Woo in “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty”, you are sure to love him in “True Beauty.” He has a certain charm and can gain a significant following and draw his fans in. Besides, the way he pursues Lim Ju Gyeong is so sweet and romantic, and all of us viewers want him to succeed in his pursuit, don’t we? You’ll love this drama to bits!
3. “Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung”
“Rookie Historian Goo Hae-Ryung” focuses on the budding romance between a young female history buff Goo Hae-Ryung and an aspiring male romance novelist named Lee Rim, who happens to be from a wealthy family. Although it takes some time for them to get past their social differences, the two characters eventually form a relationship based on their mutual love for literature and overall friendly personalities.
This was Cha Eun-woo’s first time starring in a historical drama, and he absolutely killed it as the most charming prince we’ve ever seen. In fact, the character was so spot on that it barely required any acting on his part. His talent, attraction, charm and lit up the screen with his adorableness of flirting with Goo Hae-Ryung left viewers wishing for more! The series is a romantic comedy, but we appreciated how deeply it delved into the main character overcoming loneliness to find love.
4. “Top Management”
“Top Management” is a drama that follows Ha Eun-soo (Seo Eun soo), a woman who works through the entertainment industry ranks to become a manager. She can see the future and determine which idol group will be popular in the industry.
Cha Eun Woo plays the character Yeon Woo, in S.O.U.L., a group that is working diligently to strive in their industry. Cha Eun Woo can add the right amount of panache to his role by effectively working alongside his fellow actors in their quest to make it big in the industry, including Ahn Hyo Seop and others with whom he can definitely relate. The chemistry between them is palpable as you watch.
5. “The Best Hit”
There’s so much to love about “The Best Hit.” With its star-studded cast featuring Yoon Shi Yoon, Lee Se Young, Kim Min Jae, Cha Tae Hyun, Cha Eun Woo and Lee Deok Hwa, you can expect to be entertained for the next 16 episodes! When a 90’s idol finds himself in the modern day (yes – it’s a time-travelling/parallel universe kind of show!), he’s obviously confused. But when he falls in love with his love interest Woo Seung (Lee Se Young) and discovers that Ji Hoon (Kim Min Jae) is his long lost son, he starts to wonder if his return home was ever even possible; in the first place!
The brief moments of Cha Eun Woo as M.J. in the series are absolute perfection. He was really able to own his character, probably because he can connect and relate to it on some level! And don’t forget about how beautiful it was seeing him rocking that leather jacket!
We cannot wait to see him in the upcoming movie Decibel and the drama Island!
