Plot

Yoo Seung-Ho was born on August, 1993. He is a popular South Korean actor & model. Yoo Seung-Ho first started in show business as a child actor and, like a lot of child actors, he started acting due to his mother. In 1999, Yoo Seung-Ho made his acting debut in a CF for n016. Prior to filming, the ad agency, responsible for the CF, was looking for a fresh face & not a professional model. Yoo Seung-Ho’s mother then sent in a photo of her son and he was selected for the CF.

In 2002, Yoo Seung-Ho was cast for the feature film “The Way Home” and made his feature film acting debut. Prior to his casting, staff members for the “The Way Home” were having a hard time finding the right actor to play the character of Sang-Woo. The movie’s director Lee Jeong-Hyang then saw Yoo Seung-Ho among many other child actors and was selected by Lee Jeong-Hyang. One of the primary reasons Lee Jeong-Hyang selected Yoo-Seung-Ho for the role was the mean look he was able to carry in his submitted photos.[1]During filming for “The Way Home” Yoo Seung-Ho was scolded by director Lee Jeong-Hyang and this made him want to quit acting. Now, thinking back to those days, Yoo Seung-Ho doesn’t recall those bad moments and just remembers playing with the staff members and being surprised when the grandmother in the film really cried during filming.[2] “The Way Home” turned out to be a highly successful film and sold more than 4 million tickets.

Since “The Way Home,” Yoo Seung-Ho took on several more child acting roles in movies and dramas and became recognized as a proficient child actor.

In 2009, Yoo Seung-Ho began to abandon his child actor image and took on more mature teen roles. In the 2009 MBC historical drama series “The Great Queen Seondeok,” Yoo Seung-Ho played Prince Kim Chun-Chu who was extremely wise and a crafty politician. Yoo Seung-Ho also played teens in the KBS2 drama series “Master of Study” and in the feature film “The Clue”.

In 2010, Yoo Seung-Ho took on his first adult role in the MBC drama series “Flames of Desire”. Yoo Seung-Ho, though only 17 years old, played a 21 year old married man named Kim Min-Jae. His wife was played by popular actress Seo Woo.

One of Yoo Seung-Ho’s role models is veteran actor Ahn Sung-Kee. Yoo Seung-Ho respects Ahn Sung-Kee’s abilities to play different roles and submerge himself into the various characters he plays.[3] At a press conference for “Master of Study” Yoo Seung-Ho stated that he hates math and enjoys history the most.[4] Yoo Seung-Ho has a nickname of “Little So Ji-Sub,” because of his resemblance to actor So Ji-Sub. In 2008, the two actors met for the first time and to make Yoo Seung-Ho more relaxed, actor So Ji-Sub grabbed his hands and told him “I’m sorry people nicknamed such a handsome guy ‘Little So Ji-Sub'”.[5] Since that time the two actors have become good friends and worked together in 2010 on a CF for a Winiahmando kimchi refridgerator named “Dimchae”.
