He graduated from Hoseo University and finished his mandatory military program.
He is internet savvy and loves to watch movies. He can also do Kendo well and he is an expert in computer.
Ever since he was young, he has been interested in creating different designs and acting. He also wanted to be a natural actor, an actor whose acting ability comes out naturally and not a chameleon type of actor who just adopts the role and changes its color. He wants to have his own signature brand of acting.
He thinks that he is a hardworking person he did not let things go into him or really affect him, but he admits that he is a very cautious person. His dedication, hard work, and passion earned him many Best New Actor Awards.
His goal is to become a top actor and to conquer all the difficulties or criticisms that he had to face in order to reach his goal in life.
He also said that he would rather make friends with ordinary people than with showbiz people because in showbiz they just want to show your bad side and he don’t want that, so he rather stay at his home and evade all the noise in the show business industry.
He is currently married to Yoon Eun Hye and has a child with her. The two got married in 2011.
He said that he is not a sociable person and he prefers to stay at his own home because he like a peaceful and quiet life. He said that he never had any girlfriends prior to her, but he was linked with Lee Da-Hee and Jung So-Min.
Ideal Type of Woman
His ideal type of girl before was a funny type because it fits his personality, but now he wants a girl who is polite, gentle and beautiful. A feminine type.
He also likes girls who wear dresses and are modest because it really attracts him.
Of course, he likes women who can treat older people well and can respect them. If a girl treats his parents well, then he will treat her parents much better.
Views on Marriage
He often thinks about marriage a lot and he became conscious about it since he always wanted to have his own kids.
Which is the reason why he changed his ideal type for a woman that he’s looking for.
Because he’s an actor, he and his parents knew that it’s going to take a while for him to marry. He said that if he ever gets married he wants to dye his hair, have kids and get earrings together.
At the age of 40, he finally married the girl that he’s been looking for.
