Jo Seung-woo (조승우)

Male - 1980/02/12

Music department Musical actor/ress Actor

Biography

From musicals to movies, actor Jo Seung-woo proves he's got more than just that boyish charm.

Having just wrapped up filming his latest, "Marathon", a tired-but-happy looking Jo got us caught up at the movie's release.

"Marathon",a heartwarming film about a 20-year-old autistic young man with the mental capacity of a 5 year old, challenged Jo to make his performance as authentic as possible. He prepared mentally and physically for the role of Chowon, which entailed endless running scenes. He spent time with autistic men and women to understand their lives.

Jo debuted in 1999 with the movie, "Chunhyang. It wasn't an easy role to land, but he caught the eye of director Lim Kwon-taek. He has since played both tough guys and the more tender type - and of course, we can't forget his work in musicals.

Oh, and his nickname? Colleagues say he is called "old man", a title indicative of his maturity and considerate nature.

    "God's Gift - 14 Days" stayed true to its volatile, twisting, turning, surprise-filled personality throughout each episode of its run. Secrets fueled this drama and they kept viewers on pins and needles. In fact, secrets lasted until the very last moments of this final episode, which left very little time for any real resolution. There is a difference between open-ended finales and incomplete finales. "God's Gift - 14 Days" has fallen into the latter category. An open-ended finale leaves the futures of the characters to the viewers' imagination, but resolves all major issues. There is a sense of general understanding and satisfaction. An incomplete finale leaves the viewers scratching their heads with multiple questions in their minds and a feeling of unease,...More

  • [HanCinema's Drama Review] "God's Gift - 14 Days"

    2014/04/26,
    Lee Bo-yeong's previous SBS hit is undoubtedly a great series. In a medium mostly about surface treatments, a series that respects its plot and characters like "I Hear Your Voice" did is rare. When the actress was cast in "God's Gift - 14 Days" , a series about a mother's fight to save her daughter, many fans saw another brilliant series in the making. Sadly, this industry's risk aversion, adoration of the male element and flawed filming system turned what could have been a masterpiece in its medium into just another entertaining, but not top quality series,...More
