This boy group officially debuted on April 25, 2018, by releasing the music video “Tu Eres” and the first mini album entitled NEWKIDD.

When asked if there was one point they could confidently put forward among the numerous idol groups, they smiled brightly, saying, “The greatest strength of our team is that we can communicate well with young fans because four out of six members are teenagers.”

Woochul explained the reason for the transformation, saying, “I wanted to emphasize the charm of a team rather than an individual.”
During their debut era, Woochul was a first-year high school student. “I’m the ‘Happy Virus’ of the whole team. It’s because I always have a smile on my face. The charm of the reversal is that I am good at arm wrestling in the team, and I do dare to reveal my strong body,” he explained.

Through an interview with Sports Trend that was held on December 27, 2020, Woochul of the group Newkidd, who took on an acting challenge for the first time in his life, expressed his feelings.
Newkidd’s Woochul was cast in the web drama Bio Homme which deals with the growing up of agricultural and horticultural therapy and took on the role of a high school student who is going through puberty but loves flowers more than anyone else. He is teased by his friends for being the child of a multicultural family but is a pure and bright character who is healed through flowers.
Bio Homme is a work that deals with the growing period of horticultural therapy in the first half of 2021 when Oh Won-ye, a horticultural therapist called Leon, meets Shin Bo-eun, a hot-blooded military officer who wants to give him land.
Woochul said, “I hope that it will be a work that can heal you even a little in a difficult time due to COVID-19. I worked hard so I hope that many people will enjoy watching it.”
As a result, Woochul had his first acting debut since his debut and for the first time in his life. At the recent online fan meeting “Amigos,” people were looking forward to seeing another side of Woochul who is showing off his colorful charms such as taking off the image of a “boy” and transforming into a real man.
He also revealed his role in the web drama by saying, “I took on the role of a high school student named Bae Je-hoon. He is not confident and timid, but he is a character who finds confidence through plants. My synchro rate seems to be around 20%. In reality, I try to live with confidence.”
The vocalist from Newkidd also shared about a scene that the viewers should never miss, “The process in the horticultural therapy class in the play is exciting. It’s impressive to see Bae Je-hoon’s change of self-confidence.”
This was Newkidd’s Woochul’s first appearance as an actor. He shared about the atmosphere of the filming site, “It was my first time acting so I was very nervous, but the director and staff supported me a lot throughout the filming.”
“Thanks to this, it seems that a friendly atmosphere was created with the other actors who appeared together. It was a valuable site where I could learn a lot,” he said.
As a K-pop idol, he also revealed how the Newkidd members reacted to his debut as an actor, “When I heard that I was cast, member Jin-kwon was in the practice room with his older brother. He liked me more than me and congratulated me.”
“It was thrilling. During filming, text messages came from the members saying, ‘Work hard’ and ‘Fighting.’ It felt so good and reassuring,” Newkidd’s Woochul said.
Before the interview ended, Newkidd’s Woochul also had something to say to his fans, “Through Bio Homme, I challenged acting for the first time! I hope you will be healed a lot by watching this drama. I will work harder so that I can grow like the seniors of BTS.”
