Admit it or not, Choi Woong from Our Beloved Summer has set your standards when it comes to love. Although we haven't heard a single "I love you" from him (yet), his acts of service are enough to seal the deal. If we're going to choose a K-drama boyfriend, that would be him! IRL, the actor who portrays Choi Woong is also dear to us. 

Here are facts about Choi Woo Shik that will make you his number one fan:

  1. Choi Woo Shik's birthday is on March 26, 1990.
    Which makes him a 32-year-old Aries! Those who are under this star sign are brave, driven, and generous. Aries people are also recognized for their undeniable charisma.

  2. His English name is Edward.
    Born in South Korea, Woo Shik and his family migrated to Vancouver, Canada when he was in grade 6. This explains why he's fluent in English. Apart from being called Woo Shik, he's also known as Edward or Eddie. 
  3. His monolid eyes played a big part in his decision to pursue acting.
    Woo Shik originally planned to enter the field of production (he wants to become a director someday!) but thanks to a friend, he pursued a career in acting instead. "One day, my friend told me that I should try getting into acting in South Korea because my eyes were a thing there. At that time, the industry's big names were Rain, Kim Soo Hyun, Yoo Ah In, and more. They didn't have double eyelids, you know. So, I thought, maybe I should give it a go." It turns out, his chingu has already sent his pics to various agencies in South Korea, LOL! Now, Woo Shik is not just a popular Korean actor—he has also won numerous awards for his superb acting skills.

  7. He suffered from insomnia in the past. 
    Due to excessive worrying, Woo Shik found it hard to sleep and he developed insomnia just like his character in Our Beloved Summer. He said that he kept thinking about living up to the expectations of others as an actor and this demotivated him. After this struggle, Woo Shik tried appearing in variety shows: "Whether it be through films or dramas or variety programs, I wanted to enjoy the process and become happy so that I can do what I love for a long time."
