Who is Kim Yoo Jung’s counterpart in the movie 20th Century Girl?
20th Century Girl is Kim Yoo Jung’s upcoming film, marking her return to the school garden youth series. The film promises to take the audience on a journey back to youth with love stories full of unfinished business. In the film, Yoo Jung plays Na Bo Ra, a 17-year-old schoolgirl who spends the beautiful years of her life with her friends and her first love, which is pure, sweet, but also painful.
Accompanying Kim Yoo Jung this time is Byun Woo Seok. In the movie, he plays Poong Woon Ho, whom Bo Ra tries to reach out to find out about his best friend. The two of them went through many ups and downs together in 1999 and later, in the 21st century, they accidentally met again.
Playing the role of Woon Ho, Byun Woo Seok appeared with the right image of the “next-table friend” of girls’ dreams. So young, but few people know that the fact that Byun is 31 years old and he did not often play the role of a student before. This “cutting off the horns” time surprised the audience because it brought a very different Byun Woo Seok, very young and full of energy.
For Korean movie audiences, Byun Woo Seok is probably not a strange face. Starting from a model, he started acting in 2016, when he was 25 years old. Entering the profession quite late, but with the advantage of appearance and quite natural acting, Byun Woo Seok quickly found a place for himself. He trained himself, went up from small roles in famous series such as Dear My Friends, Moon Lovers, Search: WWW and then got his first big role in Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency in 2019. Thanks to this movie, Byun Woo Seok has become a familiar face to the mass audience, and his acting is also highly appreciated. Then, in 2020, Byun Woo Seok’s name rose dramatically, the number of followers on his personal page suddenly doubled thanks to the main role in the movie “Record Of Youth”.
Acting a lot, but in general Byun Woo Seok only takes on supporting roles or main roles. 20th Century Girl is a great opportunity in his career, when he is given the male lead role next to the famous beauty Kim Yoo Jung. Currently, the audience is looking forward to the return of the handsome Byun.
