The Korean Actor Oh Jae-moo
Still remember the KBS drama Bread, Love and Dreams? The drama was the most watched drama in 2010. It tells the story of a baker named Kim Tak-goo who was determined to be the best baker in Korea. Oh Jae-moo was the cute young actor who played the little version of Kim Tak-goo.
He was only 12 years old when he first acted in the drama. He is 19 years old now and has grown into a flower boy who has captured many young girls’ hearts.
After succeeding with Bread, Love and Dreams, he also played roles in several other K-dramas and movies. Some of the well-known K-dramas he acted in are Bachelor’s Vegetable Store, Full House Take 2, Golden Rainbow, and My Father Is Strange.
Bachelor’s Vegetable Store is a drama based on the same-titled book published in 2003. It tells the real-life story of how a young man named Lee Young-seok successfully turned a small 350-square-feet vegetable store into a nationwide franchise with 33 branches. In the drama, Jae-moo acted as Young Han Tae-Yang (later played by Ji Chang-wook)
In Full House Take 2, Oh Jae-moo acted as teen Lee Tae-ik (later played by No Min-woo) who lost his parents at an early age and was driven out of his home. He grows up to achieve success in a K-pop duo called Take One.
Oh Jae-moo also acted in the family melodrama Golden Rainbow as the young Seo Do-young (later played by Jung Il-Woo). It is a story about seven orphans who were raised together as a family by a man. They experience hardships together as a family. They have strong bonds but these are broken by their own greed in finding the true meaning of family and happiness.
His recent drama My Father Is Strange is a drama about a family and a former member of an idol group who suddenly enters the family and declares himself as one of the sons of the family.

As for dancing, he showed his skill in an interview before.
He danced to SHINee’s “Lucifer” energetically. On SBS Radio Star, he stated that before becoming an actor, he went to a dance academy to learn dancing before and showed his dance skills by covering Taeyang’s “Where You At”.
