In the present, Yeo Jin Goo is known as IU’s leading man in the popular drama Hotel Del Luna. Little do we know that he has been starring in multiple movies and dramas since he was a little boy. Let’s take a quick look at the emerging stardom of one of Korea’s in-demand leading men.
2005 – Young actor in Sad Movie
The little Yeo Jin Goo first appeared in his debut movie at the age of eight. He became the “Nation’s Little Brother” due to his cute and adorable appearance in the said movie.
2008 – Young Prince in Iljimae
He continued his acting career when he played the role as the young version of Geom Lee (originally played by Lee Jun Ki). He starred alongside his young co-actor Kim Yoo Jung.
2010-2011 – Younger Counterpart in Giant and Warrior Baek Dong-Soo
Yeo Jin-Goo showed his exemplary acting skills as the younger versions of the lead actors of the drama Giant and Warrior Baek Dong-Soo.
2012 – Moon Embracing the Sun and Missing You : Rise to Stardom
Yeo continued to show his exceptional talent in acting when he played the role of the young crown prince (originally played by Kim Soo-Hyun) in the fantasy-historical drama Moon Embracing the Sun which gained the viewers’ attention. He reunited with Kim Yoo Jung in this acting project. It was followed by his emotional acting in the drama Missing You where he played the role of the young version of Yoo Chun.
These roles led him to bagging the Best Young Actor Award at the 2012 MBC Drama Awards.
2013 – Present – Yeo Jin Goo’s Lead Roles
Yeo Jin Goo starred in the action-thriller film Hwayi: A Monster Boy where he played the role of a young man raised to become an assassin. He garnered the Best New Actor award at the Blue Dragon Film Awards and was known as the youngest actor to have received the award at the age of sixteen.
His first lead acting role was when he played as Jung Jae-Min in the teen-vampire TV series (adapted from a webtoon) Orange Marmalade with the idol-turned-actress Seolhyun. He then starred in the sci-fi drama Circle, and also became the lead actor in the Korean drama adaptation of the Japanese Manga series My Absolute Boyfriend.
