Ong Seong Woo cast as lead in new JTBC drama

Ong Seong Woo has been cast as the lead in JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “18 Moments” (literal title). “18 Moments” is a coming-of-age drama about 18-year-olds, taking a realistic look into the moments of their lives, moments that all of us might have experienced at one time or another.

Ong Seong Woo plays Choi Jun Woo, for whom loneliness has become a habit. Though Choi Jun Woo appears to lack empathy at first glance, it’s just that he has always been alone and isn’t practiced in expressing his emotions. Underneath his withdrawn exterior is a goofy and cute young man. “18 Moments” is about the events that unfold when Jun Woo transfers schools and is thrown into a new environment.

Through his agency, Ong Seong Woo said, “With a fresh start ahead of me, I’m both nervous and excited. The excitement is kind of like when I was preparing to debut. This isn’t just something I’m trying, but something that I’ve dreamed of for a long time. As such, I will approach this drama with a sincere mindset.” Ong Seong Woo expressed his determination to always grow and show different sides of himself through his work and said, “I’ll work hard, so please keep an eye on me.”

Good for him! Although, going straight to a lead role? I thought idols had realized that working oneself up from smaller roles was a better strategy for audiences to actually accept you as a serious actor. Anyhow, I’ll check it out and hope it doesn’t disappoint.

I'm happy about this because I really like his face and I'm glad to watch him twice a week. Plus this was written by the writer of Girls Generation 1979, which I loved, so I have hopes it will be good.

He's cute and pretty charismatic, from my causal observations, and I love high school stories (take my back to my youth!) so I am excited for this.

He doesn't look 18 to me, though.
