Ong Seong Woo Cast As Lead In New JTBC Drama
Ong Seong Woo has been cast as the lead in JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “18 Moments” (literal title).
“18 Moments” is a coming-of-age drama about 18-year-olds, taking a realistic look into the moments of their lives, moments that all of us might have experienced at one time or another.
Ong Seong Woo plays Choi Jun Woo, for whom loneliness has become a habit. Though Choi Jun Woo appears to lack empathy at first glance, it’s just that he has always been alone and isn’t practiced in expressing his emotions. Underneath his withdrawn exterior is a goofy and cute young man. “18 Moments” is about the events that unfold when Jun Woo transfers schools and is thrown into a new environment.
Through his agency, Ong Seong Woo said, “With a fresh start ahead of me, I’m both nervous and excited. The excitement is kind of like when I was preparing to debut. This isn’t just something I’m trying, but something that I’ve dreamed of for a long time. As such, I will approach this drama with a sincere mindset.” Ong Seong Woo expressed his determination to always grow and show different sides of himself through his work and said, “I’ll work hard, so please keep an eye on me.”
Meanwhile, Ong Seong Woo, who is the latest member of Wanna One to launch his own Instagram account, has various plans in motion this year, including an international fan meeting tour as well as opportunities to see fans in Korea, as well. Reports state that Ong Seong Woo also has a solo release in the works.
