Among his most notable roles are as emergency medicine specialist Dr. Bong in both seasons of Hospital Playlist, the manager of Geumga Plaza in Vincenzo, and a veteran detective in Flower of Evil.

In 2022, he has further proven his range by going from playing a Jeju market ice vendor in the slice-of-life drama Our Blues to a chaebol out for revenge in the legal mystery drama Why Her?.

Last year, he played a prosecutor in Delightfully Deceitful, a cop in Bloodhounds, and a Japanese military officer in Gyeongseong Creature.

He has successfully transitioned from a former 7Dayz boyband member to a musical actor, and now, to a well-known k-drama actor.
