5 Q&As With Birthday Boy Choi Woo Shik!


Just like Choi Jin Hyuk in “Emergency Couple” and Park Seo Joon in “A Witch’s Romance,” Choi Woo Shik is now the newest member of the leading actor club with “Fool’s Love.” We had a feeling he was headed for stardom after last year’s breakout role in “Fated to Love You” as Lee Yong, Gun’s (played by Jang Hyuk) at-first-scheming-but-then-hilariously-supportive-brother. At the Busan International Film Festival in 2014, he even won Actor of the Year for the movie, “Set Me Free.”

It seems only fitting that we celebrate his 25th birthday on March 26 by playing our version of the 20-questions game (but really only five) to learn more about how he got here and why you should be a fan!

Question: Can He Speak More Than One Language? 
Answer: Yes!


Joining G.NA, Yuki Furukawa and Godfrey Gao on the list of celebrities with ties to Canada, Choi Woo Shik spent 10 years of his life in Vancouver. This means he can speak English! However, if you decide to communicate through the language of love, we expect there to be no problems either.

Question: Is He Signed by a Well-Known Agency?
Answer: Yes!

When JYP Entertainment has your back, it can’t be a bad thing, right? For Choi Woo Shik, the decision to sign with JYP in 2012 really helped catapult his career. Shortly thereafter, he landed a supporting role in “Rooftop Prince” as an adorable eunuch! Not to mention, we bet he’s grown his circle of K-pop friends by being in the same agency with Miss A, 2PM, 2AM and GOT7.

Question: Do You Think He Looks Like Henry Lau?
Answer: Yes!














Henry Lau (“Real Men” and “We Got Married Season 4”) really does look like Choi Woo Shik’s brother from a Taiwanese mother. They both grew up in Canada, were selected by major entertainment agencies (SM vs. JYP), and are rising industry stars. Do you agree? Regardless, you can’t go wrong rocking a suit and tie, which Choi Woo Shik does for his role as a young prosecutor in “Pride and Prejudice.”

Question: Does He Only Specialize in Comedic Characters? 
Answer: No!


Surprising twist! While Choi Woo Shik acted as lovable characters in “Fated to Love You” and “Fool’s Love,” Choi Woo Shik actually had a cameo in “You’re All Surrounded”as a frustrated, unlucky guy having a bad day. He got fed up with how things were going in his life and held everyone hostage in a restaurant, including the detectives played by Go Ah Ra and Lee Seung Gi.

Question: Is He Pregnant?
Answer: Yes ... And No



We know that it’s not possible for guys to get pregnant, but in Choi Woo Shik’s case, he’s technically pretending while hanging out with co-star UEE on the set of “Fool’s Love.” How do you think he looks with the baby belly? Does he carry it well?
