I didn’t really realize the importance of entertainment shows in the past. I just thought that it could be extra work, but that was it. But now my perception has changed. If my participation in entertainment shows helps people recognize me and gets them to talk about me, I believe being in this programs could be helpful for my future work in drama series and movies.”

Him being a guest in Radio Star was a first path to entertainment world for him, and the response of netizen were strong. He recalled the first time he was offered to appear in this show. “I wasn’t even signed up to talent agency back then, but one of the writers of the show was a friend of mine. He suggested that I appear on it. I never used to monitor my appearances-neither in drama nor entertainment shows, because it’s kind of embarrassing. But after the show, so many people contacted me and I became the most searched word on web portals. I was quite surprised by the power of entertainment show.

After that, he was called to be on several entertainment shows, and proved that he is a funny guy after all. And that just made his fans and netizens love him even more.
