Formerly a stage musical actor, JO Jung-suk made a dramatic entry into the film industry with a scene-stealing turn in the popular romance Architecture 101 (2012). His part wasn’t big but it drew him a lot of exposure, not to mention some Best New Actors awards from the Blue Dragon and KOFRA Film Awards. JO gained even more fans following his turn as SONG Kang-ho’s sidekick in the period blockbuster The Face Reader (2013), for which he picked up Best Supporting Actor accolades from the Daejong and KOFRA Film Awards. JO followed this up with another period drama, The Fatal Encounter (2014). JO is also a popular new star on the small screen, having appeared in You Are the Best! and King 2hearts. Gregarious, funny and engaging, it is no surprise that JO’s stardom rose so quickly. His rise showed no signs of slowing as he next headlined the romantic comedy <My Love, My Bride>, alongside SHIN Min-a, which became a major debut hit for Cineguru. In 2015, he took on a pair of leading roles, first in the time-split narrative drama <Time Renegade>, alongside LIM Soo-jung, and also as the lead actor in the media thriller <Journalist>, the highly-anticipated second film by ROH Deok.
