29-year-old Choi Woo Shik seriously wowed me with his performance in Bong Joon Ho's critically-acclaimed film Parasite! And because I totally love him now, here are seven of his most popular movies and TV shows:
1. Rooftop Prince (2012)
He played a supporting role as a member of The Prince's (played by Park Seo Joon) entourage! ICYMI, Woo Shik's character was the one who wore a yellow tracksuit in the first few episodes.
2. Set Me Free (2014)
After starring in this film, Woo Shik won Actor Of The Year at the 19th Busan International Film Festival! Set Me Free tells the story of a teenager who's "getting too old for the foster home he grew up in."
3. Hogu's Love (2015)

In this movie about a fantasy creature that looks like a pig, hippo, and elephant combined, Woo Shik played a driver who works for the Mirando Corporation. Like Parasite, it was also directed by Bong Joon Ho.
5. Fight For My Way (2017)
He was the *third party* in Fight For My Way! Woo Shik played the role of Park Moo Bin, who meets Choi Ae Ra (Kim Ji Won) at a wedding and proceeds to pursue her. Go Dong Man (Park Seo Joon), although he's only supposed to be Ae Ra's friend, gets kinda *jealous* and tells her that he doesn't want her to date Moo Bin.
