Cha Eun-woo’s Friends Shared about His Story During High School
ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo once said that he was not popular at school. Yet it seemed he was lying or simply demeaning himself. We all know that Cha Eun-woo has been handsome since he was young. However, in a previous interview, the 1997-born idol and actor said that he was not popular with female friends during his school days.
Cha Eun-woo was born Lee Dong-min in Gunpo, Gyeonggi Province. He attended Suri Middle School then Suri High School. Cha Eun-woo graduated from Hanlim Multi Art School in 2016. He is currently studying at Sungkyunkwan University, majoring in performing arts. He officially debuted as a member of ASTRO on February 23, 2016.
In fact, Cha Eun-woo was so handsome that his female friends at school couldn’t stop talking about him. Several netizens who attended the same school shared what he was like when he was a student.
They said, “He’s so handsome that the teachers wanted to take pictures with him. The teachers purposely made him run errands to see him because he’s good at sports and studies.”
Another said, “Everyone fell silent when he appeared in the cafeteria. Everyone was busy looking at his handsome face.”
Many netizens are not surprised that Cha Eun-woo was popular since he was in school. Some claimed to be jealous of the people who went to the same place as the star of the drama My ID Is Gangnam Beauty.
“You guys are lucky to go to the same school as Eun-woo,” commented netizens. “Eun-woo is the only one who doesn’t know that he’s popular!” added another netizen. “The visuals are really no joke,” said another. “Is he lying or being humble? Hahaha,” concluded another.
One of the roles from the K-drama ‘SKY Castle’ series, Park Yoo-na, turns out to have been in the same school as ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo. In an interview after the SKY Castle series ended its broadcast, Park Yoo-na shared her experience going to school at the same place as an idol singer like Cha Eun-woo.
According to Park Yoo-na, Cha Eun-woo was one of the popular students. Meanwhile, even though she has also been a trainee since high school, her popularity was not as high as Cha Eun-woo.
“I have known Cha Eun-woo for a long time. Even since he was still undergoing his trainee days he has been known (at school) for his good looks,” Park Yoo-na said. “I knew him, but he didn’t know me. I just told him [after becoming an artist], ‘I also study at Hanlim Multi Art School’,” continued Park Yoo-na.
Park Yoo-na understands that Cha Eun-woo doesn’t know her because the number of students at their school is not small, and they are separated in different majors. “I majored in dance and he majored in broadcasting and entertainment. My school is quite big with 40 students in each class, so it’s not easy to get to know all the students,” explained Park Yoo-na.
