Released in 2003, so far The Classic is still one of the most romantic, poetic and regrettable love songs of Korean cinema. In the film, Son Ye Jin takes on two characters, Ji Hye and her mother – Joo Hee, both of whom have a love filled with regret. Taking on the role of Joo Hee’s first love is the famous actor Jo Seung Woo, who is known as a multi-talented artist on the Korean screen. Not as handsome and romantic as the other male lead of the film – Jo In Sung, but Jo Seung Woo that year still fascinated the audience with his poise, calm appearance, professional performance and emotional eyes.
Classic moments of The Classic in particular and Korean cinema in general
Jo Seung Woo that year was not only Son Ye Jin’s “first love”, but also millions of viewers
At the time of filming The Classic, Jo Seung Woo had only been in the profession for 3 years but had starred in 4 movies. After the hit movie with Son Ye Jin, his career developed more than ever. For the small screen audience, Jo Seung Woo may be a strange face, but for movie fans, he is a name that guarantees the quality of each work. His whole career so far is 22 years, Jo Seung Woo starred in 16 movies, all work in the “evil” category on the Korean big screen.
It was not until 2012, that Jo Seung Woo began to try his hand at the small screen with the movie Horse Doctor . Of course, with his name, the number of dramas he received is not much, but all of them are the main roles, most notably the two seasons of Stranger , one of tvN’s classic blockbusters, with the the participation of big sister Bae Doona.
In addition to movies, Jo Seung Won is also known as the “invincible king” on the musical stage. Once a boy with an introverted personality, afraid of appearing in public, it was the musical that changed his life. If with movies, Jo Seung Woo sometimes fails, in the musical stage he is truly a king who has never disappointed the audience. There is information that he used to be the owner of the highest salary in Korean musical history.
Currently, Jo Seung Woo has acted in fewer movies, it has been 4 years without acting and more than 1 year since the last drama. The only work that he confirmed to participate in is Sacred Divorce, which will not be broadcast until 2023. On his page, he still regularly updates his current image and delights the audience with the standard appearance of “a great uncle” in his 40s.
