But despite the worry, he is doing well for a newbie and safely walking on the road to becoming a great actor. In “Dream High 2” Jin Woon’s character is a troublemaker, Jin Yoo Jin, who dreams of becoming a rock star. His character may seem cold to the girl he likes, but inside he is warm and affectionate.
