Jo Jung Suk was born in the capital city of South Korea, Seoul. Since childhood, he was interested in theater the most and dreamed of becoming a stage actor. Young Jo Jung Suk received student loans and was accepted to the Seoul Arts University majoring in Theater. Unfortunately, he had to quit his studies at the college and to pay the debts later, which took him quite a while. His family required support after the tragic event in 2000; this was the reason why Jo Jung Suk had to quit the University. Jo Jung Suk was 20 year old when his father passed away leaving him as the only one the family could depend on. Possessing a bright and fresh personality helped Jo Jung Suk in overcoming all the hardships. Moreover, the family issues prevented him from fulfilling his military duty. Nonetheless, Jo Jung Suk did not give up on his childhood dreams. To earn money for the family, he took any role in musicals and devoted his life to it.
Jo Jung Suk attended Seoul Institute of the Arts; his major was Theater. As for Jo Jung Suk's family, it is widely known that he has an elder sister and two elder brothers.
Jo Jung Suk took his career in theater very seriously, even though he could not graduate from the Seoul Arts University and had to take any role available. He worked hard to gain popularity as a musical actor. After his appearance in “The Nutcracker” in 2004, the viewers positively perceived Jo Jung Suk’s stage performance, which gave him an opportunity to show up in other musicals. Jo Jung Suk acted in more than 25 musicals, and that was only in a 9 years period. However, as Jo Jung Suk considers himself, “Hedwig” was the most successful musical role. He played in “Hedwig” in 2006, 2008 and 2011. In May 2016, Jo Jung Suk played Hedwig for the fourth time in his career. The actor’s first appearance on television was in 2011. However, the actual success on TV came to him with the two projects in 2012. Jo Jung Suk got an opportunity to appear in the famous hit “ Architecture 101” and the network drama “The King 2 Hearts”. After his increasing success as an actor, Jo Jung Suk was offered different kinds of roles in movies, dramas and even commercials. One of the recent projects he appears to be rather captured by is “Youth over Flowers”. Thanks to his participation in this travel-reality show, Jo Jung Suk had the opportunity to visit Iceland. The trip helped him to experience all kinds of emotions possible, whether they were connected to extreme cold and language difficulties, or to beautiful landscapes and picturesque waterfalls.

Wow I did not realize he did so much acting.
I know! When I first read about him a while ago I was surprised too. He's an incredible human being.
Jo Jung Suk is so talented. His voice is so beautiful and he's such an amazing actor! He's so handsome! I've seen him in Legend of the Blue Sea, Oh My Ghost, Jealousy Incarnate and King 2 Hearts. I'm currently watching King 2 Hearts. I love him in Oh My Ghost!!! His acting is incredible in Jealousy Incarnate! 💖

Yeah Oh My Ghost and Jealousy Incarnate are the first dramas I've seen him in. He makes a cameo appearance in Legend of the Blue Sea for a couple episodes.
