The acting-dol has been building his filmography with various roles in web dramas and dramas. It is interesting to see that 2 out of his 3 K-Dramas (not web drama) lead roles were based on webtoons and that the new drama he is in talks for is also based on webtoon. Cha EunWoo matched especially well with his webtoon characters and fans are curious about his next acting project.
Let’s have a closer look at his lead roles based on webtoon.
1. “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” as Do KyungSuk
In 2018, the drama “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” based on webtoon was popular and Cha EunWoo was acting as the university freshman Do KyungSuk who cares about the “real” person instead of its appearance. He helps Im SooHyang as Kang MiRae learn what is real “beauty”.
Cha EunWoo matched well with Do KyungSuk.
2. “True Beauty” as Lee SuHo
Even before Cha EunWoo was announced as the lead actor of “True Beauty”, readers of the worldwide popular webtoon have been talking about his similarities with Lee SuHo. It was the perfect synchronization.
In the drama, he took the role of the handsome high school student with hidden scars. At the release of the drama (2020-2021), Cha EunWoo gained a lot more popularity.
In talks. “Island” as YoHan Skelp
Cha EunWoo was offered to act as one of the lead characters (he is still in talks) in the upcoming OCN drama “Island” based on the webtoon of the same title.
If he accepts he would act as the hip exorcist YoHan Skelp who grew up in the states and fights monsters of JeJu Island which have been looking for opportunities to get rid of the human world for a long time.
Fans have been surprised and excited at the news as it will be a whole new image for him.
How well will he pull off this character (if he accepts)?
