Get to Know Cho Tae-kwan
Have you watched Descendants of the Sun? You might only remember Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo as they are the main characters, but you can not leave out this handsome actor! Cho Tae-kwan played the role of the doctor, named Daniel Spencer, in Descendants of the Sun. Are you curious about him and his life? Let’s take a look at his profile!
Cho Tae-kwan’s Profile and Facts
Cho Tae-kwan is a South Korean actor who was born on February 12th, 1986, in Toronto, Canada. As he was born in Canada, he is also known as Jasper Cho. He used to study at Falmouth University and majored in Creative Advertising. He began his career by appearing in a commercial for GE Appliances in Canada in 2007. Currently, he is working under Yul & Urbane Global Entertainment’s management as an actor and art director.
He started to show up in the Korean entertainment industry after competing in the survival show Superstar K 6 back in 2014. After competing in Superstar K 6, he continued to build his career by starring in music videos, such as Girl Hood’s “Honey Darling I Love You,” in 2014, and Lee Seong-yeol’s “Song 1,” in 2015. The next year, he made his debut as an actor by starring in Descendants of the Sun as Daniel Spencer. Later, he became the new host of the entertainment news program Showbiz Korea, in 2017.
Fun fact: he admitted that he noticed some signs of his co-stars, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, dating while filming Descendants of the Sun. On the MBC talk show Radio Star that was aired on July 12th, 2017, he shared his thoughts about the recent marriage news of Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo. He said that while they were filming the drama, he didn’t know that they were dating. But after he heard the director telling them to really try liking each other with sincere feelings and Song Joong-ki responded that they are already doing well on their own, he had a feeling that they really were doing well on their own.
However, unimaginably, his statement became a hot issue after the broadcast. In an interview on the next day, he sincerely apologized to the couple for talking about them. He stated that he just answered because the MCs asked him, but he later thought that he might have made a mistake. He also added that he just said it as it is, but he is feeling sorry toward Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo.
